Created by Live Nation and Downtown Las Vegas Events Center (DLVEC), Las Rageous will feature performances from Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, Anthrax, Coheed and Cambria, Killswitch Engage, Breaking Benjamin and more with two stages in the heart of iconic downtown Las Vegas.
Derek Stevens, owner of DLVEC, the D Las Vegas Casino Hotel and Golden Gate Hotel and Casino, is taking an active role in the planning of Las Rageous as the event will continue to usher in a new era of entertainment in Downtown Las Vegas.
“We are thrilled to work with Live Nation on DLVEC’s first original music festival,” said Stevens. “When we opened the venue in 2014, it was always in our plans to create a series of unique events for locals and visitors alike to enjoy. Creating exciting entertainment experiences is a priority for us and Las Rageous will definitely be the ultimate rock weekend.”
With only 10,000 tickets available for purchase, Las Rageous will offer 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.
Amanda Moore of Live Nation furthered, “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.”
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, with more announcements to come.
- Saturday, April 22: Avenged Sevenfold, Breaking Benjamin, Mastodon, Eagles Of Death Metal, All That Remains, Escape The Fate, with more announcements to come.
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 foodie-focused Food Truck Village.
Pre-sale tickets will be available Thursday, Feb. 2 from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. PT. Pre-sale passwords can be obtained by signing up for the Las Rageous email list at www.LasRageous.com or from radio partner KOMP-FM.
