Live local music is back in Tempe.
Following the city shutdown during the COVID-19 pandemic, six Tempe-based bands will showcase their talents live in a one-of-a-kind experience in Tempe during the inaugural Tempe Playlist Jam on Friday, June 25 at 8 p.m. at the Tempe Sports Complex.
There is something for all musical palettes, with genres ranging from cumbia to hip-hop to rock.
The showcase celebrates the release of the new Tempe Playlist, a city program that features songs by 51 local musicians compiled by Tempe City Arts.
There is no admission fee. Spectators are recommended to bring a picnic chair and blanket to get the most out of the show.
Food trucks will be available as well as a cash bar and a beer garden sponsored by Tempe Diablos.
Tempe Playlist is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with AZ Beat Lab and TopKat Studios. The program was originally supported by the Arizona Creative Communities Institute, funded by the Arizona Commission on the Arts and the ASU Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts.
