THANK YOU TO ALL THE ARTISTS WHO SUBMITTED VIDEOS! THE SUBMISSION PERIOD IS NOW CLOSED!
What is Tachevah?
On April 17, 2013, Tachevah, A Palm Springs Block Party will entertain music fans midway between the two 2013 Coachella Music and Arts Festival weekends. The free celebration of music and our city will take place outside the Spa Resort Casino in downtown Palm Springs from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and a DJ will keep the party rolling in between band sets.
A headlining band — to be picked by Goldenvoice — will be announced soon, but the open-air party will feature three unsigned bands who will perform their original songs in front of a big honking audience of music fans, Goldenvoice promoters and entertainment industry muckety mucks.
What comes next?
We’re currently prepping all the submitted videos and will have the voting available as soon as possible later this afternoon. The response has been overwhelming, and we’re rushing to get voting online as soon as possible. Follow @Tachevah on Twitter, and we’ll tweet the moment you can vote!
From as soon as we can get the videos posted today through Friday, March 22, readers will have the opportunity to watch and vote on all submitted videos. The top 10 videos will be presented to an expert panel — including Desert Sun music reporter Bruce Fessier and Goldenvoice execs Paul Tollett and Skip Paige — who will choose the three opening bands to perform at Tachevah.
Every member of the winning bands will receive free admission to the Coachella Festival.
The Palm Springs Block Party lineup will be announced Monday, March 25.
Then, join us in Palm Springs for the free concert event on Wednesday, April 17.
