Etzel Entertainment President Tom Etzel, owner and producer of the inaugural event says, “Sidewinder is a country music festival that music fans and followers alike can enjoy each year at a prominent local venue and accessible location at WestWorld of Scottsdale.
“WestWorld is an ideal property to launch the festival considering its substantial footprint, proximity to the greater-Phoenix area and beautiful setting at the base of the McDowell Mountains.”
In partnership with Etzel Entertainment, Steve Azar, songwriter, recording artist, music producer and philanthropist brings a wealth of experience to the first-time event. In addition to launching, owning and operating his own music festival, Azar’s hit single “I Don’t Have To Be Me, Til Monday” received three Million-Air awards from BMI and is one of the top five most played songs of the past decade on country radio.
Sidewinder offers a variety of ticket options for fans to enjoy their favorite country music artists on the WestWorld polo field. Fans who purchase a ticket in the reserved section receive a branded souvenir chair.
The Snake Pit, a standing-room-only area located directly in front of the stage, provides the intimate concert experience that passionate fans crave. The VIP area includes complimentary food and beverages throughout the event in addition to exclusive VIP parking access.
RV parking, including power and water hookups, will also be available for overnight stay with a limited amount of premium locations within stage view. RV parking passes start at $100.
The Scottsdale Independent is available for free every Wednesday.
