LAS RAGEOUS: NEW TWO-DAY MUSIC FESTIVAL SET FOR FRIDAY, APRIL 21 & SATURDAY, APRIL 22 IN DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS
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 21 and Saturday, April 22. Created by Live Nation, 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.
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.”
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.”
Derek Stevens, owner of the D Las Vegas Casino Hotel, added, “The D Las Vegas Casino Hotel is proud to be part of the first annual Las Rageous. The fresh, energetic attitude that Downtown Las Vegas is known for is the perfect fit for an outdoor rock music festival.”
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.
