The Circle K Tempe Music Festival is Arizona's premiere multi-sensory music festival. In 2009 the event was voted Arizona's Best Annual Music Festival by the readers of both the Phoenix New Times and azcentral.com, home of The Arizona Republic. Each year Circle K Tempe Music Festival provides more than music with interactive sponsor displays, extreme sports demonstrations, exciting kids activities and much more.
Each spring the festival spans two days in Tempe Beach Park, located within walking distance of Arizona State University's main campus. With multiple stages of non-stop music, the Circle K Tempe Music Festival has had the privilege of hosting national acts such as Kid Rock, All American Rejects, 3 Doors Down, Fergie, My Chemical Romance, Puddle of Mudd, The Fray, O.A.R., The Gin Blossoms, Jeff Beck, John Mayer Trio, Live, Blues Traveler and many, many more. Another unique feature includes the Emerging Artists Stage which showcases up-and-coming local and regional bands.
Great music combined with Arizona's beautiful spring weather and a multitude of festival activities makes the Circle K Tempe Music Festival a highly anticipated annual event for the Tempe community and statewide. Entertainment Solutions has been the proud producer of the Circle K Tempe Music Festival since its inception in 2003.
Each year high school and college garage bands are recruited to participate in the annual SRP Garage Band Competition. The bands go through several rounds of online fan voting and judged live performances, with finalists advancing to perform at the SPR Music Shack at Circle K Tempe Music Festival. The top high school and college bands get to open for a national headliner, performing in front of thousands of fans on the festival's Main Stage. Winning bands will also receive an SRP music scholarship to donate to the music program of their choice.
The Circle K Tempe Music Festival has grown to be the largest music festival in Arizona.
