At any time during the entry process if you have questions, ask for assistance from Festival Staff located at the front gates.

    Keep the neighborhood beautiful

    Downtown Las Vegas is our home and we share this space with our neighbors, many of whom live in festival’s footprint or the surrounding area. Show them how beautiful of an experience this is by leaving no trace behind other than memories: Throw away your trash, respect the space, your festival friends and the residents surrounding the community.

    A: We believe that TIME = POWER. Don’t spend your time and energy worrying about a low battery or a possibly dead phone. We know how important it is to stay connected, and safe!
