Jan. 24, 2014–Arizona Bike Week presents their biggest concert lineup ever!! The event’s main rally, Cyclefest, will be held at WestWorld in Scottsdale, April 2nd to April 6th. This will be Arizona Bike Week’s eighteenth annual event. In less than two decades, ABW has become one of the top rallies in the country. FX Promotions Inc. (producers of Arizona Bike Week), attribute its rapid growth to the all-inclusive, vendor expo/music fest format that they have constructed. All general admission passes include access to hundreds of world class vendors, stunt shows, factory demos, games, contests, exhibitions, on-going live entertainment and each night closes with a headlining concert. The list of artists on this year’s ticket is truly amazing:
- Wednesday, April 2nd – Aaron Lewis
- Thursday, April 3rd – Big and Rich
- Friday, April 4th – Lynyrd Skynyrd
- Saturday, April 5th – ZZ Top
- Sunday, April 6th – Special appearance by Sons of Anarchy cast members:
Kim Coates “Tig” and Tommy Flanagan “Chibs” Plus a Boston tribute concert by Don’t Look Back A five-day pass to Cyclefest is just $50 and includes all the concerts, activities and attractions. Single day passes are also available starting at $15. In addition to being one awesome party, Arizona Bike Week incorporates daily charity rides into the event. Participants on these rides all receive admission to Cyclefest for the day of the ride, including that night’s concert. This generates hundreds of thousands of dollars in charitable donations, for a variety of great causes. Savvy ABW goers take advantage of the on-site tent and RV campsites and abundant nearby hotel accommodations. This is not an event you can spend a few hours at and feel you’ve taken it all in. In addition to the nightly concerts, each day offers a varying, wide assortment of activities. Planning your schedule at Cyclefest is comparable to a day at Disneyland. “Let’s see, do I want to check out the bike show first and then go to the second stunt show? But wait, I really want to catch at least one set of the first band that’s playing. I definitely want to take a demo ride on one of the new Harley’s. Maybe I can do that after I watch the FMX show.” Then there’s the realization, “I’ve barely seen half the vendors and the concert’s about to start. I need to come back tomorrow.” One thing is for certain. If you can’t find something to do at Arizona Bike Week, you’re just not trying very hard.
