Las Vegas Festival Grounds

The Festival Grounds  have brought some serious talent to Vegas since opening. The outdoor venue was home to Rock in Rio in 2015 and the ACM Party for a Cause this past spring.

Headed to a festival here? Trust us and plan ahead. There’s no public parking available for the grounds and traffic tends to be an issue. All those cars have to go somewhere, right?

The most effective way to get there is the Las Vegas Monorail. Hop on at any of the other six stops along the east side of the strip and travel to the SLS Las Vegas. From there, walk across the Monorail’s pedestrian bridge across Paradise Ave. and make your way through SLS before crossing Las Vegas Blvd and entering the festival ground gates.

Traffic jam? No way, you’ll be jamming to your favorite artist before everyone else gets out of their taxi.

Got some time to spare before a show? Grab a drink at the SLS’s Monkey Bar or endulge with a burger at the L.A. transplant, Umami Burger.

Las Vegas Village

The Village is the South Strip’s complement to the Festival Grounds and has several exciting events scheduled in the next few months. The Daytime Village at the iHeart Radio Music Festival takes over the 15 acres on Saturday, September 24th.

From September 30th—October 2nd the Las Vegas Village will host the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival.  Stars Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Luke Bryan and more will bring country to Sin City.

To access the Las Vegas Village using the Monorail, simply hop on at any of our seven stations and ride to the MGM Grand. From there, it’s a short walk south on Las Vegas Blvd. The Las Vegas Village is just past the Tropicana.

The T-Mobile Arena

We know you’re excited too! Here’s the full run down on the best way to get to the T-Mobile Arena and The Park.

Brooklyn Bowl

Looking for something a little bit more local? Do you love a smaller content venue, bowling, or great food? This is definitely the place for you. Rock ’N’ Roll has found it’s rightful home in Las Vegas on The LINQ promenade. Check out their upcoming shows—you’ll definitely want to add it to your Vegas itinerary.

Getting here is a snap. Take the Monorail to the Harrah’s/The Linq stop and make your way to the promenade. Walk towards the High Roller observatory wheels and you’ll see the Brooklyn Bowl next to Sprinkles Cupcakes.
