KYKOTSMOVI, Ariz. - The Hopi Foundation Board of Trustees and staff are honored to announce KUYI 88.1 FM, Hopi Radio, will celebrate its 10th Anniversary with a live music festival on Oct. 10 at the Hopi Veterans Memorial Center.

Part of the musical line-up includes top Native American Music Award winning artists - Group of the Year, Native Roots; Clandestine, Best Rock Recording; and special guest Randy Wood, Best Traditional Album and Grammy Nominee.
Over 10 years ago, the Hopi community demanded an outlet for news, entertainment and most importantly, cultural perpetuation. Through the hard work of dozens of individuals, KUYI Hopi Radio 88.1 FM went on air to provide a musical, linguistic and informational response to this request.
Everyone is invited to join KUYI as this grand effort and dream is celebrated.
The music festival will begin at 10 a.m. in the open air outside of the Hopi Veterans Memorial Center. Festival attendees will enjoy delicious food and beverages as well as prizes. The headliners will take the stage at 6 p.m. For listeners unable to attend the event, live remote coverage will be broadcast over KUYI's and streamed across the world at www.KUYI.net.
