Fans may not have noticed, but when Robert Ellis, 24, took to the Palomino Stage on Friday, he was a little rattled.
He was using a borrowed guitar from Gibson and hadn’t noticed until it was too late that it was missing a guitar strap.
“That’s why I had to sit on a stool which kind of threw off my whole vibe. At a festival I’d prefer to stand because I like to get people’s attention,” he said after his set.

Goldenvoice has quietly changed the Stagecoach lineup since first releasing it Oct. 9.
The promoter of the country music festival has been updating its website as changes were made.
Now, though, it has a new poster to go with the revised lineup.
Among the changes made so far, as rounded up by Brian Indrelunas:
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer-songwriter Jerry Lee Lewis, who was slated to perform Sunday, has been removed from the lineup.
Here’s who’s been added:
- The Little Willies (Friday)
- Charlie Daniels Band (Sunday)
- Chris Shiflett and the Dead Peasants (Sunday)
- Katey Sagal and the Forest Rangers (Sunday)
Robert Ellis was moved from Saturday to Friday.
Wristbands are still on sale for the April 26-28 festival at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio.
