Coachella 2008 Festival

Coachella and Stagecoach 2008

Once again the Rat Sound is proud to be the main sound provider for all 5 stages.
First, for the Coachella festival 2008 (24th to 26th April 2008) which includes artists such as Prince, Roger Waters, Portishead, Jack Johnson, Death Cab for Cutie, the Verve and Kraftwerk. And then, one week later, for the Country festival Stagecoach featuring The Eagles, Rascal Flatts, Tim Mcgraw and Carrie Underwood.

As in past years, L'Acoustics has been the choice of speaker for 4 of the 5 stages,
with Rat Trap 5's being used for the Smaller Gobi Tent.

Rat has a crew of 32.
