So why should you get your Wild Wild West Fest Passes Early?

Spring is right around the corner and so is the new Wild Wild West Fest Live Music and Arts Festival scheduled for April 25-27, 2014 for which 8 Minutes to Burn is the host band.

Andres Amador, the Earthscape Artist whose beach sand drawing recently went viral was announced as the headlining Artist.

Headlining the Consciousness Program will be Lorenzo Hagerty, who will be facilitating the first ever live session of The Psychedelic Salon and the Sustainability Headliner will be Jeff Stein, Architect at Arcosanti; Arizona's urban community laboratory that focuses on innovative design, community, and environmental accountability.

The yoga program will feature Stained Glass Artist/Yogini Jessica Joy Myers from Bikram Yoga College of India's Headquarters in Los Angeles but the biggest announcement comes with the music headliners, the first of which was announced today.

Guitar Virtuoso Stanley Jordan will be headlining the festival with his mix of classical and jam band style. He made a huge splash at Jam Cruise the last couple of years and equally kick ass guest appearances with Umphrey's Magee at McDowell Mountain Music Fest and with String Cheese Incident in Flagstaff last year.

He is one of two national headlining acts along with a number regional local acts in the lineup.

Tickets are on sale now at the Early Bird Price of just $30. That's just $10 a day for a 3-day camp out with music, art, sustainability education, consciousness workshops, and lots of yoga teachings.

If you buy your pass before February 15th, you not only get the best price but you get a FREE VIP UPGRADE as a reward for being one of the people to help provide revenue that is needed to secure the acts and create the infrastructure.

There are only 200 Passes at the Early Bird Discounted Price and 400 VIP Passes total and only 1500 Passes are being sold for the entire event.

Lastly, there will be a number of Pre-Parties before the event and a few post festival parties as well and only people with VIP status will get discounts and freebies where they are concerned. VIPs also get real special treatment at the fest like discounted beer and free food as well as special sessions with the talent that is off limits to non-VIP ticket holders.

So to sum it all up:

1) By getting your pass early you get the most you can for the lowest price.

2) By getting your pass early you help with the revenue needed to make the event happen.

3) By getting your pass early you get a bunch of special treatment and extras that happen leading up to the festival.

8 Minutes To Burn Announces The Wild Wild West Fest Live Music & Arts Festival

Have you ever wondered what the United States would be like if the era of Tombstone, Bisbee, Jesse James, and John Dillinger was still the mode of existence today?

Being from the Southwest, where there are reminders everywhere, we wonder about that prospect everyday and here is your chance to bring that wonder to life!

Om August 23, 2013, 8 MINUTES TO BURN announced that we would be hosting The Wild Wild West Fest Live Music & Arts Festival. After breaking into the festival scene at the beginning of 2013 with an appearance at 7th Annual Gem & Jam, we hit the ground running with a tour across the southwestern U.S. which has brought us in contact with a number of musicians we want to share with our hometown community.

Since then we have been invited to play with some legendary bands like the Skatalites in September and we are looking forward to playing and sharing our music on stage with some even more incredibly talented people at the beginning of the new year.

The desire to share the music we have experienced with our friends and family led us to create The Wild Wild West Fest, which will feature live musicians from all over Arizona and from many other parts of the country. We have invited a few special guests from our recent tour and members of the ReverbNation community will be able to submit for two available slots as well.

As its gets closer to the festival, which is taking place during the weekend of April 25-27, 2014, we encourage you to connect with us via our social media or contact LTB Booking & Promotions on Facebook if you are interested in a offering your gift at The Wild Wild West Fest.

We Love You Party People!

Fun at the Hippie Fest!

What a blast we had at the Local Love Hippie Fest! It was great to share the stage with Funky Bonz, Carlos Arzate and The Kind Souls, The Tryst, and Top Dead Center.

We are proud to be from Tucson, which we believe has one of the most awesome collaborative music scenes in the country right now and that was evident with the Fire On The Mountain encore super jam.

Thanks for the Local Love promoters for bringing us all together and providing the local bands a chance to hit the stage of the best venue in town.

Looking forward to doing it all again sometime soon.

8M2B 3 Tucson!

It's not too often bands get to share the stage with some of the local bands that helped motivate them.

We are excited to share the stage with Top Dead Center, The Tryst, and Funky Bonz, all of which are some of the Tucson bands that have inspired us to move forward in our recent developments.

This show is for the family and friends in Tucson who have supported local musicians forever.

As the city changes and it feels like our chances to express ourselves are dwindling, shows like these have to surface and thrive to keep the music going.

Come out and support the local music scene.

Thanks to The Rialto for hosting!
