Celebrity sightings at music festivals are a common occurrence, spreading across social media like wildfire. From Katy Perry at Coachella to Gaga at Pitchfork Music Festival, they distract attendees from the real situation at hand – the music.

At this past weekend’s Stagecoach Music Festival, held in Indio, California, actor Ashton Kutcher had a good view right in the front row. In between playing cornhole in the artist VIP section and chatting up artists and festivalgoers, he tweeted his thoughts of the fest from the front row on Saturday and Sunday.

A fan of Brooklyn-based trio The Lone Bellow (also a Radio.com New Music To Know artist), Kutcher seemed impressed by the band’s set.

Turns out Kutcher isn’t only a fan of the Lone Bellow. He took to Twitter to share a few shots of the Charlie Daniels Band and Zac Brown Band later that weekend.

But it didn’t seem to be all fun and games for the Iowa-raised actor. There were various rumors circulating that Kutcher had a “violent confrontation” with festival security shortly before he headed to see Nick 13 and Dwight Yoakam perform.

This isn’t the first time Kutcher has rubbed people the wrong way at a country event. Last year, at the Academy of Country Music Awards, he took the stage dressed as a cowboy before handing over the award for Female Vocalist of the Year to Miranda Lambert. Afterward, Lambert and Justin Moore voiced their opinions of the actor on Twitter.

Despite Kutcher making headlines at Stagecoach, the artists proved it was a festival not to be missed. Saturday night Lady Antebellum closed the show and performed a new song written to welcome the newest member of the band, baby Antebellum. Now six months pregnant, Hillary Scott is almost ready to welcome her future baby girl to the road.

According to California radio station K-FROG 95.1, the trio even previewed a few stripped-down tracks off their upcoming album, Golden (out May 7), including “Goodbye Town” and the album’s title track. Later in Lady A’s set, the trio brought out friend Dierks Bentley for an unrehearsed performance of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire.”
