Las Vegas offers entertainment in countless forms, so it is hardly a surprise that there are music festivals the city is renowned for. Let’s list some of the finer festivals for the adventurous music lovers you can check out when you are taking a break from all the casinos and restaurants.
Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival
That’s a mouthful to say and sounds like a ludicrous combination for things that should be not put together, but here we have a blend of punk rock and bowling. It all started in 1999 when two Stern brothers wanted to organize a bowling party for their punk friends. The organizers have a strong socio-political mission of fighting oppression and discrimination and they have one of the most awesome festivals in the entire city of Las Vegas.
The Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender
We are not kidding – that is what it’s called. While most festivals take place outside, like in a certain street or in a square, this one takes place in a hotel – Orleans Hotel & Casino. The festival brings you four days of rock music and it does not stop or slow dos, which is perfect for a city like Vegas. Furthermore, what the Weekender is known for is its trade of old automobiles. So, even if you are not into rock music, you can still pop over and check out some ancient sweet rides.
Electric Daisy Carnival
Arguably the best rave there is, the Electric Daisy Carnival has become so popular that other countries have tried emulating it. Imagine a non-stop three-day party with neon, shows, and electronic music. This does not even begin to do it justice, as the festival is too big to be put into words. If you can only attend a single music festival in your life, it should be this one, provided you are into electronic music and the accompanying atmosphere.
Psycho Las Vegas
Here is another music festival for rock and metal fans. While headbangers are most at home here, the festival is getting more diverse each year. It is not a tame fest, so if you are looking for a chance to dance and unwind, you should give this one a pass. That being said, it is full of energy and worth a visit.
The Festival of Colors, as it is also called, originated in India as a celebration of spring. What separates this everlasting party from others is the enthusiasm people display when they get covered in various colors. That’s right, people in the audience frequently throw colored powder and everyone eventually leaves looking like they jumped through a rainbow.
