COACHELLA, Calif. — Calling all performers! The HUE Music and Arts Festival wants your talents for its the third annual family-friendly event Saturday, April 6, 2013.

The youth-led Event Planning Committee is seeking local performers to share their talent to entertain the community. Examples of entertainment include: rock bands, R&B groups, reggae bands, grupos norteños, DJ’s, grupos danzantes, dance troupes, rappers, traditional performers, and drama groups.

All Riverside County bands are encouraged to apply, although priority may be given to Eastern Coachella Valley individuals and/or groups.

This festival is designed to showcase the talent and creativity of youth in the Eastern Coachella Valley and will consist of various genres of music, culture, and art.

“Art is something you can feel…Opening a park at 9 o’clock at night in a neighborhood that isn’t always seen as the safest, and inviting people of all ages to come together to celebrate their community,” said Esperanza Navarro, youth coordinator for Eastern Coachella Valley Building Healthy Communities. “That is The HUE.”

Coachella Unincorporated

Coachella Unincorporated is a Youth Media Startup in the East Coachella Valley, funded by the Building Healthy Communities Initiative of The California Endowment and operated by New America Media in San Francisco. The purpose of the project is to report on issues in the community that can bring about change. Coachella Unincorporated refers to the region youth journalists cover but also to the unincorporated communities of the Eastern Valley with the idea to “incorporate” the East Valley into the mainstream Coachella Valley mindset.
