MUSIC FESTIVALS ARE TAKING OVER THE LAS VEGAS STRIP THIS SUMMER

The Entertainment Capital of the World is expanding its legendary music events in 2020 with two incredible festivals, including Big Blues Bender and PSYCHO Las Vegas.
The 7th annual Big Blues Bender is shaping up to be the most electrifying yet, with additional performers confirmed for the highly-anticipated Las Vegas-based music festival. GRAMMY® Award-winning band The Allman Betts Band and GRAMMY® nominee Christone “Kingfish” Ingram will join the lineup of headlining acts at the four-day destination festival. The group of newly-added, top-notch performers also includes Jimmy Hall, Jimmy Carpenter Band, Leon Blue, Steve Marriner and Kat Riggins. This only-in-Vegas hotel takeover event will take place Sept. 10 through 13, 2020 at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
As the Blues’ most artist-friendly festival, Big Blues Bender will kick off once again with its popular fundraising event, “HART Party!” inside the International Theater at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino Wednesday, Sept. 9 at 8 p.m. Featuring a star-studded musical review and live auction, the event will benefit the HART (Handy Artist Relief Trust) Fund.

PSYCHO LAS VEGAS, North America’s ultimate vacation-destination music festival, will continue to redefine America’s conception of what a festival can be, taking over Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino for the second year in a row Aug. 14 through 16, 2020. Now approaching its fifth consecutive year in the sweltering neon decadence of Las Vegas, the resort-wide casino takeover will utilize four stages including the world-class Mandalay Bay Events Center, the iconic House of Blues, Mandalay Bay Beach and Rhythm & Riffs Lounge, located at the center of the casino floor. This year’s PSYCHO LAS VEGAS lineup features more than 70 iconic acts, offering fans one of the most unique and immersive festival formats in the world.
