The Coolest Stagecoach Hat Style Guide
2022 marks the first event in two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Founded in 2007, Stagecoach has grown to be the largest country festival in the world. Thanks to its popularity, you can always see the coolest Stagecoach hat if you attend.
Stagecoach runs from April 29th to May 1st at the Empire Polo Club. The headliners this year include Diplo, Carrie Underwood, and Thomas Rhett. Tickets run from $400 to $1,300. To get yuo ready, let’s look at the top Stagecoach hat styles from the last festival in 2019 before the lockdown.
Whiskey Myers on Stage
Another name for this band could be “The Two Codys” because it’s led by Cody Cannon (on the left) and Cody Tate. Cannon wears a brown felt men’s fedora hat with a pinched front crease. The crown is 4.5 inches tall, and it has a 3.5-inch flat brim. Unlike other fedoras, Cannon does not snap the brim up or down.
Tate also wears a western-style fedora hat with another pinched front crease. This hat has a somewhat floppy 2.5-inch brim, which dips in the front. Tate’s hat has a red bandana as a hatband.
What if We Kissed in Front of the Ferris Wheel?
As with all music festivals, Stagecoach is a gold mine for social media posts. In this “candid” pic, we see two festival goers kissing. The man wears a lightweight straw cowboy hat with a cattleman crease. It also has three eyelet vents on each side to let the heat out.
Wild Feathers Playing
The band Wild Feathers knows how to look good without dressing up too much. The bearded guitarist wears a white straw Panama hat with a black hatband. This hat has a straight center crease instead of a teardrop shape with a side pinch.
What If We Stood in Front of the Ferris Wheel?
As you can see, the Ferris Wheel is a popular landmark for Stagecoach cowboy hat vacay bangers. In this photo, the lady wears a light felt fedora hat with a wide center crease and a red bandana hatband.
The man wears a straw cowboy hat with what appears to be a Gus hat crease. This crease slopes down toward the front.
Billy Ray Cyrus on Stage With a Stagecoach Hat
Billy Ray is wearing a Resistol Stagecoach cowboy hat. This one’s a black felt hat with a bull rider crease, just like rodeo cowboys wear. The crown is at least four inches, and has a flat brim that curves down in front and back.
The Diplo Rainbow
Stagecoach brings all kinds of acts, including the artist Diplo. This photo is from one of his sets, and the light makes this neon cowboy hat look psychedelic.
Lil Nas X Times 1,000
At the 2019 Stagecoach festival, Billy Ray Cyrus performed with Lil Nas X for the Old Town Road remix. Nas X wore a 1000X black Stetson cowboy hat. This black felt hat has a Biggs crease with side pinches. The extra-wide five-inch brim curls up on the sides so it doesn’t interfere with roping steer. It also stays flat in the front and back.
Cheers! I’ll Drink to That!
Since the festival is in the desert, many attendees dress as lightly as possible to avoid overheating. Here, we see a cowgirl wearing a straw cowboy hat with a Biggs crease and a braided hatband with a silver buckle in front.
And One From Coachella
Stagecoach and Coachella happen in the same venue on separate weeks, so it’s easy to mix up the two events. This photo is from the latter, where you can see celebrities like Clint Eastwood. He’s not wearing a hat, but his friend has a black felt cowboy hat. Her headpiece has a cattleman’s crease and a wide, 4.5-inch brim. The brim curves down slightly in the front and hangs slightly lower in the back.
