09 Feb Tachevah: Rock Out and End HIV in the Coachella Valley!
Rock and roll is going to make HIV history in the Coachella Valley – and we want YOU to be part of the excitement at this year’s Tachevah music festival!
This year, Get Tested Coachella Valley is teaming up with Tachevah to make a healthier Coachella Valley – all through the power of music! This annual music showcase gives SoCal bands a chance to play in front of well-known music industry judges at venues throughout the Coachella Valley, a shot at a $3,000 cash prize, and the opportunity to rock out for a cause with Get Tested Coachella Valley.
Rock and roll has a long history of changing the world. In the ’80s, concerts like Live Aid brought awareness to global issues like famine in Ethiopia. In 1992, legends like David Bowie, Metallica, Def Leppard and Guns N’ Roses rocked out to raise HIV awareness and funding for AIDS research at The Freddy Mercury Tribute Concert, held shortly after the Queen frontman passed away due to AIDS complications.
And now, it’s happening right in your backyard at Tachevah, where top local bands will rock out to bring the end of the HIV epidemic in our community.
Come be part of HIV history. Be sure to join us at these three concerts (at some of the finest venues the Coachella Valley has to offer!) for goodies like free safe sex kits, free and confidential HIV testing, and music by some of the region’s best artists!
- March 31: Pappy & Harriet’s, Pioneertown
