The Entertainment Capital of the World is about to get louder.
The endless trill of slot machines is already music to many traveler’s ears, but when you patronize Sin City May 8-9 or 15-16, you’re in store for a different kind of vacation soundtrack. Sure, Las Vegas is known for its wild side – on a 15-minute jaunt to the corner store, you’ll run into more risqué billboards and slots than palm trees. But there’s far more to this city than its top-notch topless revues and penchant for grocery gambling, and there’s no better time to experience it than during the first-ever Rock in Rio USA.
When you arrive, the warm Mojave air will send a rush of pre-summer heat to your cheek. Vegas in May is comfortably warm, transforming the world’s gambling mecca into a true desert oasis in the days and weeks preceding official summertime. You may want to play an inaugural penny or two at the airport before heading to your hotel, but it’s worth waiting to get checked in. If you travel with Benoic, a luxury motor coach and multilingual guide will be waiting at the airport to welcome you to fabulous Las Vegas and deliver you to the Stratosphere or SLS – both of which offer complimentary gambling lessons to awaken your inner card sharp.
But the real fun begins after check-in. Las Vegas naturally thrums with excitement, but during Rock in Rio, you can expect to find music in the air just about everywhere you go, making a night tour an absolute must. On your rollicking bus ride, you’ll go all the way from the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign to the Fremont Street Experience where you’ll stop for a spectacular lights and sounds show – a perfect kick-off for the festival days and nights to come.
If you’re staying at the chic new SLS – and we recommend it – then you’ll be directly across the street from the 33-acre festival grounds where you’ll have the music experience of a lifetime. The open-air venue will transcend all other concert experiences with attractions, activities and eats to satisfy your appetite for fun and food as well as music. You can take a spin on a roulette-inspired Ferris wheel overlooking the entire festival; soar directly in front of the main stage on a 400-foot zip line; and explore three themed “Rock Streets” paying homage to the UK, Brazil, and the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll, the good ol’ US of A.
As you explore the gorgeous, grassy festival grounds built especially for this sonic spectacular, you’ll sing and dance with fellow fans and find yourself immersed in the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll, all while basking in the neon glow of the Strip. The city’s energy will only amp up further as the festival goes on, bringing together 300,000 music lovers with red-hot guitar solos, addictive beats, and irresistible choruses.
