The Stagecoach Country Music Festival for 2012 has sold out more than three months in advance, a first for the gathering, which  marks its sixth anniversary this year.

Promoter Goldenvoice announced the sellout, more noteworthy as the festival has been expanded from the usual two days to three this year, for only the second time in its history.

This year’s event is slated for April 27-29 at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, Calif.,  and features the usual mix of contemporary and classic country, veterans and newcomers, mainstream and alternative performers, including Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Martina McBride, Alabama, the Band Perry, the Mavericks, Kenny Rogers, Luke Bryan, Sara Evans, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers and Chris Isaak.
