Watch: How Bachelor Nation Turned Stagecoach Into an Unofficial Reunion

Forget about the Bachelor Mansion. Keep your eyes on Stagecoach.
On April 29, thousands of country music fans will head to Indio, Calif., to experience three days of non-stop music. And while attendees plan their schedules to experience Carrie Underwood, Thomas Rhett, Maren Morris and other artists live, they also may want to keep their eyes peeled for members of Bachelor Nation.
Before the coronavirus pandemic put a pause on the annual festival, Stagecoach served as an unofficial reunion for many cast members of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
"Bachelor Nation is a pretty tight knit crew," Robby Hayes exclusively shared with E! News. "It's pretty normal for us to meet up and make sure we cross paths when we are attending the same event and located in the same city for a weekend. If we let the atmosphere and drinks get the best of us, well, I guess we just like to let loose when the cameras aren't on! It can be a nice change of pace!"

Back in 2019, Blake Horstmann's trip to Stagecoach caused one of Bachelor in Paradise's most dramatic storylines—and love triangles—of the season.


This year, however, he will be performing a DJ set at The HonkyTonk with Bachelor Nation guests expected to attend.
For others like Cassie Randolph, the festival is a drama-free zone where she can make memories with those she loves most. "My family has gone for the last five years," she told E! News at the Cupshe pop-up in March. "We stay in the RV park and just hang out all day, have a great time and it's almost better than Christmas for me."
Before the fun begins, keep reading to see all the memories Bachelor Nation made at Stagecoach.
