Coachella just revealed they’re moving and upgrading the iconic Sahara Tent stage to a bigger location for the 2024 edition of the festival.
Over the years the Sahara has been home to major performances that have captivated the hearts of many people, such as Daft Punk, Skrillex, Kaskade, The Chemical Brothers, Boris Brejcha, Tale of Us, Tchami, Fatboy Slim, YG, BLACKPINK, Metro Boomin, Blink-182, and many more. It has seen multiple transformations from a large tent to a massive megastructure. And with its popularity brings more fans, which has caused the Sahara to overflow with thousands of people throughout recent years. So it’s no surprise that said stage is once again getting a huge upgrade.
Construction officially started in December of 2023 and the new stage will reportedly be 320 feet long transitioning from an aluminum structure to a steel structure as it’ll be moving to a new area south of the original spot where the venue once had horse stalls. They have removed all those stalls to add room for better crowd control to/from the Sahra Tent. They’ll also be building a new grass hill right next to the stage for better viewing, similar to the one built for Kanye West in the campgrounds back in 2019.
The production and capacity will be incredibly massive moving forward to make more space for bigger acts to perform at the new and improved Sahra Tent stage. Peggy Gou has essentially been confirmed to play the new Sahara stage by Jason Brown, VP of Artist Production at Goldenvoice.
