Some 15,000 ticket holders (and likely more) will have access to the Tesla Cyber Rodeo on Wednesday, an event celebrating the opening of the company’s Giga Texas factory near Austin.
If the Tesla Cyber Rodeo looks a bit like the company’s previous events, it promises to be filled with punchy music, fantastic displays and a keynote from CEO Elon Musk. Fortunately, fans, critics, media and other looky-loos, who didn’t receive a ticket, can still take a look at some of the splashes, surprises and listen to Musk’s comments. And even if they show up, Musk tweeted that the gates, which open at 4 p.m. CT, “won’t be super strict.”
Tesla will stream the Cyber Rodeo on its You Tube channel beginning at 7:00 p.m. PT with Musk onstage at around 9:00 p.m. PT, according to a tweet of the Chief Executive. We’ve also embedded a link below so you can watch here.
However, those new to Tesla and Musk’s world should understand that the timeline might just change. (Tesla live events never start on time.)
What will TechCrunch be monitoring? Cameos and shoutouts are always fun. But we really want updates on the Tesla Cybertruck, Tesla Semi and Tesla Roadster at an event that Musk tweeted is “preparing to be literally the biggest party on Earth.”
And of course, there could be the “one last thing” moment that has become a constant feature of Tesla events. For example, in 2017, at the Tesla Semi event, the rear door of the truck opened and designer Franz von Holzhausen drove a Roadster prototype. At the Cybertruck event in 2019, an electric mountain bike was presented.
Our guess? We’re expecting a different version of the Cybertruck prototype or maybe even a whole new kind of electric pickup truck. What is your?
