Savor craft beer and fine wine in one of the most beautiful venues in Greater Palm Springs as you groove to the tunes of a diverse musical line-up at Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience (RWB) on Saturday, March 4 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.
This year, the festival continues to evolve from its R&B roots with a welcome showcase of reggae, rock and hip hop. Headliner Snoop Dogg joins reggae bands Pepper and The Expendables for an unforgettable festival. Other performers include Andy Frasco and the U.N., Spankshaft and Macho Combo.
The craft beer and wine garden will be packed with regional breweries and wineries pouring tastes from 4 to 7 p.m. (but if you want first dibs, snag a VIP ticket for early access at 3 p.m.). Bring your appetite—food trucks and local restaurants will offer a variety of mouth-watering menu options ranging from lobster tacos and gourmet pizza to juicy hamburgers and spicy Mexican cuisine.
This year, RWB also offers an exclusive Dining Under the Stars package, where diners enjoy a gourmet four-course meal with a view of the main stage. Looking to make your experience a weekend to remember? Don't miss RWB's new Elite Experience pass, 5-Star Glamping Package or private cabana rental (details below).
