The Chipotle Cultivate Music Festival will return for its fifth consecutive year in three select cities: Phoenix, Kansas City and Minneapolis.

The food and music festival is a free event for everyone who comes. There are no tickets required for the live chef demos, bands and other special activities. The only thing that patrons pay for are the food and drinks offered at the event. All of the Chipotle food is $5-7 per serving, beer and wine in the Tasting Hall start at $6 per glass or $2 for a beer taster and all non-alcoholic drinks are $2.

Chef demos at WestWorld will be provided by Charleen Badman (chef and co-owner of the award-winning FnB in Scottsdale), Richard Blais (winner of “Top Chef: All Stars” and owner of Juniper & Ivy in San Diego), Amanda Freitag (chef and owner of Empire Dinner in New York City), Joshua Herbert (owner of POSH restaurant in Scottsdale) and Christopher Schlattman (executive chef at OldTown restaurant The Upton).

Musical guests in attendance at the event will be Twenty One Pilots, MS MR, Magic Man, Jared & The Mill, DJ Christopher Golub and one other band that is still to be announced.

The Chipotle Cultivate Music Festival will take place on Saturday, April 18 from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. at WestWorld in Scottsdale, located off Pima Road and Thompson Peak Parkway.
