Stone Temple Pilots to Headline 7th Annual Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience on Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

The 7th Annual Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience (RWB) returns to Empire Polo Club’s fields on Saturday, March 3rd, 2018, presented by Empire Music Ventures.  The 2018 lineup features grunge headliner Stone Temple Pilots as well as The Psychedelic Furs, She Wants Revenge and more.

The Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience presents fans with an uncommon mix of multi-genre and multigenerational music. The festival will showcase a mix of American rock, new wave and alternative rock. RWB producer Alex Haagen, IV, says, “Every year we create a lineup that offers guests a variety of music ranging from party blues and reggae to classic rock and hip hop. This year, we’ve brought together an exceptional blend of genres that brings back sounds of the 80’s, the 90’s and early millennial rock.”

The Rhythm, Wines & Brews Experience offers its audience the complete festival experience with five great live bands, amazing art installations, exceptional craft beer and wine tasting, live cirque performers and on-site camping.  A big part of the action is the beer and wine tasting offered by more than 100 craft breweries and wineries. The Craft Brewhouse Bar will be stocked with 24 craft beers on tap. Multiple bar locations will offer refreshing craft cocktails, distinctive wine selections and chill beverages. Beer and wine tasting will be open from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. for General Admission (4:00 p.m. for Elite/VIP Admission).

The food line up at the Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience includes fare from a variety of choice restaurants. Festival favorites include delectable ramen, savory tacos, juicy burgers, tasty pizza, classic barbecue and much more.

New for 2018 will be the secluded Tiki Rum Bar, where festivalgoers will sip island-style cocktails served up by resident mixologist Nelson Amaya.  The Tiki Rum Bar can be found tucked away in a lush, tropical garden flanked by an enchanting lagoon complete with fountains and whimsical statuary.
