The pool isn’t just for swimming this spring at Talking Stick Resort as the property unveils its new outdoor concert venue. With its recent renovations, the main pool now includes a new stage plus capacity for more than 4,000 poolside party-goers! Other changes include a new day lounge pool that will allow guests to be half in and half out while soaking up the sun in one of the 16 lounge chairs that are immersed in the pool.


In addition to the day pool, six cabanas have been added to the area bringing the total to 27. Those renting a cabana will be treated like a VIP, as each will be outfitted with flat-screen TVs, furniture, ceiling fans and refrigerators. Seating at the pool also now includes 12 daybeds including eight canopied daybeds.


Rounding out the new venue is the new stage. A Stageline Mobile Stage, this 40 x 60 foot SL320 converts from trailer to a stage. Along with the stage will be state-of-the art sound and lighting sophisticated enough to present some of the nation’s top headline acts. However, before bringing in an impressive roster of headliners, Talking Stick Resort will reveal its pool renovations during a two-day musical event honoring some of music’s hottest performers.


Beginning Saturday, April 12, Talking Stick Resort’s TributeFest will kick off with such tribute artists as Queen Nation: A Tribute to the Music of Queen, Bonfire: A Tribute to AC/DC and DSB: A Tribute to Journey. Each will take over the new outdoor stage and seamlessly recreate the sound of the originals.


The celebration will resume Sunday evening on April 13 with the musical styling of Strange Days: A Tribute to the Doors, Fan Halen: A Tribute to Van Halen and Led ZepAgain: A Tribute to Led Zeppelin.


Guests will lounge poolside as the authentic tribute acts deliver high-energy renditions and play a collection of power anthems.


“This event is truly one for the record books as it is the first of its kind in Scottsdale,” said Ramon Martinez, Director of Public Relations for Talking Stick Resort. “We have an exciting music lineup scheduled this year and thanks to the pool expansions, we’ll be able to accommodate up to 4,000 guests.”


The outdoor concert series will be offered all summer long, allowing fans to enjoy live entertainment as they take in the sun’s rays. Following the property’s tribute festival; several local and national acts are already slated to perform on the pool’s stage including Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers on May 2, Staind on June 8 and 311 on June 29!


Cocktail specials, reclining daybeds and cabana rentals will also be available.


The TributeFest is free. Tickets for Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, Staind and 311 can be purchased at the Talking Stick Resort Box Office.
