Tahoe Heartbeat Festival – A Music, Art, Culture, and Community Benefit Event featuring: Thievery Corporation, Trevor Hall, Ozomatli, and more!

Saturday, August 20, 2022, Lake Tahoe Community College Outdoor Fields.

Born from the desire to promote musical arts, conscious awareness, and community environmental efforts, Tahoe Heartbeat Festival will feature a full day and evening of national music headliners, local artists, arts & craft vendors, food & beverage offerings, games, and more! This year’s inaugural event will take place at the Lake Tahoe Community College Outdoor Soccer Field on Saturday, August 20, 2022, beginning at 2:00 pm. 

This fundraising event will benefit the Tahoe Fund, a local nonprofit that works with private donors to help fund environmental projects around the Lake Tahoe Basin with an emphasis on forest health, lake clarity, sustainable recreation, transportation, and stewardship. Recent projects the Tahoe Fund has supported include removing aquatic invasive species at the Taylor and Tallac creeks, acquiring Johnson Meadow, constructing the Lily Lake Trail, and an ongoing matching campaign to raise funds for the new community park on Ski Run. 

Headlining this year’s inaugural event are Thievery CorporationTrevor HallOzomatli, Arden Park Roots, and more to be announced. 

Twenty-five years into their genre-defying electronic music career, Thievery Corporation’s founding principles of D.I.Y. and inclusion have become key themes in mainstream social conversation. After a dozen highly acclaimed full-length albums, remix LPs, concert recordings, and over two decades of incendiary live performances that have thrilled audiences worldwide, Thievery Corporation’s music and message is more relevant and important now than ever.

Trevor Hall’s music is a blend of roots and folk music with touches of electronic elements and is imbued with a deep love of Eastern Mysticism. This powerful symbiosis fostered a deep connectivity with his growing fan base and Trevor quickly matured into a leader of the burgeoning conscious musical community. Along with numerous pilgrimages to India, he has sold out the historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado as a headliner and he also completed a series of sold-out international tours with artists such as Ziggy Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Michael Franti, John Butler Trio, Matisyahu, and Brett Dennen.

The festival’s mission is to put into place vital and proven sustainability practices, in an effort to reduce the impact on the environment and promote environmental awareness among the fans. This year’s event will feature sustainability and biodegradable initiatives including compostable food and beverage offerings, a no plastics policy,  a waste diversion program, a free bike valet, and more to raise awareness of the need to take care of the Lake Tahoe Region and our planet.   

This is an all-ages event, with families, encouraged to come early, and enjoy the beautiful grass park with games and activities. 

“We are honored to be the beneficiary of this inaugural event that will bring some great music to the community while emphasizing the importance of taking care of Tahoe,” said Tahoe Fund CEO Amy Berry. “The funds raised will help us get more environmental improvement projects completed around Tahoe.”

“We are beyond excited to be able to produce this important and fun event for our community in such an amazing location as the College’s game fields this summer”, says Paul Reder, President of PR Entertainment, Inc. of Lake Tahoe.   “Working with festival veteran Dan Sheehan (California Roots Festival, the first certified Green Festival in California), and Parker Alexander with Tahoe Heartbeat clothing brand is a thrill and will provide a high level of stunning live production and execution that will be enjoyed by all the attendees”.  

100% of net profits from sales of Tahoe Blue Vodka from the event will be donated to the Tahoe Fund, along with portions of Tahoe Heartbeat merchandise and event ticket fees will be donated to Tahoe Fund, as well as 100% of gratuities from beverage service will be donated to the charity.
