This year marks the debut of Las Rageous, a two-day music festival taking over two square blocks in downtown Las Vegas on Friday, April 21st and Saturday, April 22nd.
Amanda Moore of Live Nation explained, “Bringing an annual rock festival to this city has been a dream ever since we opened the Live Nation Las Vegas office. Rock and metal music have a rich history here in Sin City; from the bands it has fostered, to its wild and loyal fans, to KOMP – one of the oldest and most respected rock stations in the country.”
Live Nation Las Vegas produces residency shows from Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Lionel Richie, Backstreet Boys and Pitbull at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino; Bruno Mars and Ricky Martin at the Park Theater at Monte Carlo; and Steely Dan at The Venetian Las Vegas.
All ages are welcome and doors open at 4 p.m., with headliners taking the stage at approximately 10 p.m. The festival will also feature a collection of wandering freak show performers, a KOMP-sponsored showcase of local rock and metal bands, and a Vegas scene foodie-focused Food Truck Village.
The lineup for Las Rageous is as follows:
Friday, April 21: Godsmack, Anthrax, Coheed and Cambria, Killswitch Engage, Of Mice & Men, The Devil Wears Prada, We Gave It Hell, A Friend A Foe
Saturday, April 22: Avenged Sevenfold, Breaking Benjamin, Mastodon, Eagles Of Death Metal, All That Remains,Escape The Fate, Nations, Code Red Riot
With only 10,000 tickets available for purchase, Las Rageous offers the rare opportunity for fans to enjoy a festival experience in an intimate outdoor setting. Located just off Las Vegas Boulevard at Third and Carson Streets, Las Rageous will take over two city blocks of the historic downtown area.
Charlie Benante of Anthrax stated, “We are looking forward to playing the Las Rageous festival, planning on making this first-time festival memorable.”
Benjamin Burnley of Breaking Benjamin said, “We’re really excited to be a part of Las Rageous in April. We love playing Vegas and are looking forward to being a part of this new festival.”
