From Harry Styles to Carrie Underwood, Here’s Where You Might Find These 5 Festival Headliners in Palm Desert

What Would the Stars Be Doing in Palm Desert This Spring?

Whether you’re heading to Coachella for a groovy weekend in the Do Lab or you’re ready to kick some dust up at Stagecoach, there’s truly no season like festival season! In the springtime, the Coachella Valley comes alive with a buzz that’ll make just about anyone want to slip on their dancin’ shoes. And this year, big-name artists like Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Carrie Underwood and Thomas Rhett are taking the stage! But have you ever wondered what these headliners might be doing when they aren’t mic’d up? Here’s what we think they’d be up to in the sunny city of Palm Desert! Festival Headliners in Palm Desert


Coachella Headliner: Harry Styles

Spare Time Spent: Shopping on El Paseo

On El Paseo, also known as the “Rodeo Drive” of the desert, you’d likely bump elbows with Harry Styles, the ultimate fashionisto. This shop-lined street is a destination for luxury retail and sophisticated dining and is an ideal place to explore an abundance of art galleries. Explore well-known retailers like Oliver Peoples and Athleta or pop into local boutiques like The Upper Crust. When you’ve shopped till you’ve dropped, wind down at Eddie V’s Prime Seafood for delectable surf and turf. World-class wine and handcrafted cocktails await!

With legendary pop star Billie Eilish coming to headline day two of Coachella, you might find her exploring the streets of Palm Desert, snapping some sultry photos in front of the city’s public art pieces. Palm Desert’s one-of-a-kind Art in Public Places program has provided years of support for the larger-than-life sculptures and murals scattered throughout the landscape. You can download your own Public Art Map, which will guide you through the many outdoor installations!

Stagecoach Headliner: Carrie Underwood

Spare Time Spent: At the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa

The desert has long been known as a relaxation destination, so why not indulge a little with an all-star spa treatment? You’d probably find the one and only Carrie Underwood enjoying a hot stone massage at The Spa of the JW Marriott Desert Springs. With popular add-on services, such as CBD muscle and joint relief and a paraffin foot treatment, this 60-minute massage uses heated basalt stones to massage the body. For a little extra self-care, opt for the caviar facial, which features protein-rich caviar and powerful antioxidants to visibly renew skin. Carrie would approve!

Stagecoach Headliner: Thomas Rhett

Spare Time Spent: Hiking the Bump and Grind Trail

Hoping to bump into American country music headliner Thomas Rhett? Lace up your hiking boots and set out on the Bump and Grind Trail, one of Palm Desert’s most popular trails to see and be seen. This mega star was spotted hiking right before his show in Denver two years ago, so there’s a good chance he’ll want to get his steps in here too. The Bump and Grind Trail is a four-mile loop that overlooks the city and takes about 2.5 hours to complete. Whether or not you see Thomas Rhett, you’re sure to get the dose of nature you need. Start early and bring your sunscreen!


Stagecoach Headliner: Luke Combs

Spare Time Spent: Enjoying a Beer at Desert Beer Company

If there’s any place you’d find Luke Combs before his Stagecoach performance this year, it would be at a brewery in town: Desert Beer Company! Well-known among the desert community as a popular hangout spot for the best brews in town, Desert Beer Company also offers food from pop-up vendors. Wash down your grub with one of their 20 draft beer options.
