  • Your Chance to Play Tempe Music Festival, by Stephen Chilton (Phoenix New Times, January 24, 2009)


Practical Info:

  • Tempe Beach Park
    80 W. Rio Salado Pkwy. & Mill Avenue
    Downtown Tempe, AZ 85281
  • From all points
    Take Loop 202 to Priest Drive Exit in Tempe. Go south Priest Drive to Rio Salado Parkway. Go east on Rio Salado Parkway to Hardy. Parking is on your left. Once you park—it is a 5 minute walk to the Main Gate.
  • It is highly recommend that drivers approach the Festival from Priest & Rio Salado Parkway. Mill Avenue will be closed due to the Tempe Arts Festival happening adjacent to the Music Festival. Getting to ample parking will be difficult from the South, therfore save yourself some time and park at Rio Salado & Hardy!
