Dancing the Night Away: 2017's Best Las Vegas Music Festivals
Las Vegas is the world’s adult playground that’s famous for gambling and top-notch entertainment. To complement the tantalizing shows along the Strip, Sin City also has periodic music festivals that move into town. Whether you prefer hard rock or relaxed blues, there’s a festival for you in 2017. Discover the musical side to Vegas as these festivals move your hips to the beat.
– Exploring Rockabilly
Rockabilly is one of those time-tested music genres that thrills nearly every generation. With an eclectic mix of rock and country music, rockabilly comes alive with the “Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend.”
More than a dozen acts come on stage at the world-famous hotel, The Orleans. The classic casino surroundings complement Lee Rocker’s style along with the Cleftones keeping the beat. Although this festival is on a Thursday night, it’ll feel like a Saturday adventure. Brenda Lee, Freddy Cannon and many more artists will give you goosebumps as the rockabilly music fills the air.
– The Rave Scene
The Electric Daisy Carnival opens up for one weekend in June, and it’s a scene unlike any other. Techno, house and other dance genres fill the air at different stages. Each performance area has a distinct style so that no one’s musical tastes are overlooked. You’ll need to head out to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to see this spectacle, but it’s worth the drive.
Enjoy countless DJs and singers who accent their sets with amazing light shows. If you’re accustomed to concerts ending at 11 p.m. or midnight, this festival will surprise you. It’s not unusual for it to last well after 2 a.m.
– Rapping it Up
Return to The Orleans again for another musical genre that’s a bit more hard core. The “Las Vegas West Fest” brings in some of the top names from the West Coast of rap. Ice Cube is the headliner along with DJ Quik and The Dogg Pound.
West Coast rap skills are fascinating to watch as a newcomer to the genre so don’t be shy about attending this festival. These professionals offer rhymes that are complex and fun to listen to at the same time. Learn about the mean streets and what it entails to survive. Bob your head along to these songs as the Vegas nights continue to excite you.
– Heavy Metal Nostalgia
A handful of metal festivals invade Vegas in the warmer months. “Psycho Las Vegas,” “Vans Warped Tour,” “Rock Into Spring” and “Las Rageous” are a few of the top festivals that boast eclectic lineups each night. Some of these festivals cover two or three separate nights so that you don’t miss out on any top names.
Be aware that these festivals are held at various venues. The hotel resorts host a few of these performances, but you can also find them in Downtown Las Vegas. Being in Downtown usually means that the performance is an outdoor event so dress appropriately. Springtime in Las Vegas can still be warm.
– It’s a Blues Kind of Night
Head over to the Clark County Government Center Amphitheater to experience rhythm and blues. This festival is called the “Las Vegas City of Lights.” Will Downing, Lalah Hathaway and Eric Robertson are some of the performers for this laid-back experience.
Pick one or two nights to explore the blues with these artists as you relax with a drink in your hand. This festival is by far the most calming experience as the rhythm flows through you like water.
– Punk Rock Exploration
Make your Memorial Day a memorable one with the “Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival.” The king of punk, Iggy Pop, is the headliner for this concert that takes place in Downtown Las Vegas. Punk originated in Europe where it spread like wildfire into the Americas. Get to know this rebellious yet complex music genre with a ticket to at least one night.
Pennywise, Bad Religion and The Spits will also be performing. If you’ve ever turned the radio on to a rock channel, you’ve probably heard these artists before.
– Reggae Grooves
You might feel the tropical breezes brought in by the reggae songs played at the “Reggae in the Desert” festival. Passafire, Sizzla Kalonji and many other performers will grace the Vegas stage. Enjoy the harmonic tunes as you shop at the various vendors surrounding the concert. Reggae is a musical form that takes you away to the tropics. With this concert set for June 10, 2017, the heat might be on in Las Vegas already. Luckily, the main concert is set inside the Clark County Amphitheater for your comfort.
– Enjoy Some Country Interludes
If country music is your favorite genre, get your tickets to “Route 91 Harvest Festival.” Country musicians flock to Vegas as they try out their best songs. Top names and newcomers mix on stage as you discover moving music. Eric Church, Lauren Alaina and many more artists are still being added to the list. This festival hits the Las Vegas Village at the end of September so you still have time to pick up a pass.
– Art, Music and Food
Do something good for the Vegas community by heading out to “Life is Beautiful.” This festival is different because it’s a mixture of song, food and educational displays. Support quality organizations around the city as you taste foods that come from around the world. It’s held in the outdoor, Downtown Las Vegas area so that you can feel the pulse of the city as the beats go on. Performers from nearly every genre attend this event. In previous years, Mumford & Sons, Major Lazer and other big names have performed and rocked the stage for hours on end.
Get your tickets early to most Las Vegas music festivals. Many of these events quickly sell out. The headlining act is normally the biggest draw so pay careful attention to the lineup. If your favorite crooner is coming to town, be sure to buy those tickets at the very moment that they go on sale. You’ll dance through the night with Vegas festivals keeping the beat.
