After more than a year of wrangling, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival co-founder Paul Tollett has secured the additional land necessary to ensure the comfortable growth of the nation’s leading music festival.
More than 95,000 votes were cast for which bands should play Tachevah: A Palm Springs block party!
During the one week of voting you narrowed the field from 83 bands that submitted music videos.
The Top 10 bands, in alphabetical order:
- Felix Nobody x Notepad
- Future Fix
- In Viridian
- The Feaver
- The Pedestrians
- Town Troubles
- You Me & Us
The Top 10 bands’ videos now advance to the judges — Goldenvoice president Paul Tollett, Goldenvoice vice president Skip Paige, and MyDesert.com music guru Bruce Fessier.
Over the weekend, the judges will choose the three lucky winners.
Those three bands will score free admission to Coachella — and will perform April 17 (between Coachella weekends) in front of Goldenvoice executives, the MyDesert.com audience and you, the fans.
The party — think beer garden + live music — runs from 6 to 10 p.m. April 17 at Spa Resort Casino, 401 E. Amado Road in Palm Springs.
We’ll announce the winning bands on Monday, March 25. Make sure you’re the first to know: Download the free smartphone app MyCoachella.com and follow us on Twitter at @Tachevah
