Viva PHX

Viva PHX Announces Schedule

Phoenix's own SXSW just got a little easier to plan.

Viva PHX has released its official schedule, breaking down where and when the 70-plus acts will play next Saturday, March 12.

Organizers have also added a new venue — Melinda's Alley, the speakeasy bar beneath the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown. Fittingly, the brand-new bar will host jazz throughout the night. 

Tickets are just $22 for now — $45 for a fast pass that will get you priority entrance into the venues — but that price won't last long.
