Greater Palm Springs has earned a reputation for being one of the top festival destinations on the West Coast. Sure, the year-round sunshine helps, but so does the stellar lineup of music festivals throughout the year. One that should absolutely not be missed is the Rhythm, Wine and Brews Experience at the Empire Polo Club this March.
WHAT: Get the ultimate festival experience and then some, with the Rhythm, Wines & Brews Experience offering a huge selection of craft beer and wine tasting, food, art, culture, camping, and of course music.
WHEN: Saturday, March 3rd, 2018, 5 p.m. - 12 a.m. (VIP ticket holders can enter at 4:00 p.m.)
WHERE: Empire Polo Club in Indio
Get ready to groove to the tune of five live bands this year, including headliner Stone Temple Pilots, The Psychedelic Furs, and She Wants Revenge. Two additional live bands are to be announced and will perform at the Tasting Garden Stage.
Sip to your heart’s delight on a multitude of libations from over 100 craft breweries and wineries, including 24 craft beers on tap at The Craft Brewhouse Bar. You can also expect to uncover a bevy of craft cocktails and other cold beverages in multiple bar locations throughout the festival. VIP and Elite ticket holders will also have access to additional exclusive bars, including a hosted Vodka Bar.
New this year is the Tiki Rum Bar, featuring three exclusive, signature rum-based craft cocktails mixed by expert mixologist Nelson Amaya, amidst a lush, tropical set-up.
Dig in to a wide selection of savory bites and hearty eats that range from tacos to burgers to pizza to ramen, and plenty of classic barbecue to boot. But the eating doesn’t stop there! With more food vendors being finalized by the day, there will be plenty of options available for purchase, no matter what you're craving.
The Art & Entertainment
The Rhythm, Wine and Brews Experience isn’t just a treat for your ears and taste buds. Feast your eyes on stilt-walking, juggling cirque performers, and dramatic, out-of-this-world art installations. Plus, the aerial and fire-dancing performances are not to be missed.
Convenient, on-site tent/car camping and RV camping will both be available for two nights beginning on Friday, March 2nd through checkout on Sunday, March 4th, and provides an exciting and fun way to experience the festival. Camp-goers will also have access to bathrooms and showers.
