We can’t find anything on the books that matches your search right now, but let’s try another combo!

The range of Nevada performing arts may run wider than anywhere else, spanning multi-million-dollar Vegas stage shows to Elko’s weeklong celebration of cowboys reciting poems. Get into the action at a more traditional music and arts center, like Reno’s Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts or Carson City’s Brewery Arts Center, or get some sand in your toes watching Shakespeare with stunning Lake Tahoe for a backdrop at Sand Harbor State Park.

And now hear this. Whether we’re talking Rat Pack lounge legends, residencies from Elvis to Garth to Britney, or even The Killers naming their fourth album “Battle Born” after our state’s nickname, the Silver State has always struck a chord with music lovers. Today, the Nevada music scene reverberates far beyond blockbuster stage shows and casino cover bands—or even just Vegas (although you can pretty much never NOT catch a great band there). From rural roadhouse string bands to chart-topping artist-filled music festivals, like iHeartRadio Music Fest or Life is Beautiful, cruise around our site and we’ll make sure that, when you get here, you’ll stay nice and tuned up.

You never know what you’re going to see at #LifeisBeautiful 👀
Wrapping up the week with an intro to this month’s photographer spotlight, featuring @voggesser. Tobin is in it because he’s a fan first and has that sixth sense for when the action will hit. About this photo...
@jonstickleytrio playing on top of the world. This on mountain set from #wwgtahoe 2017 is one of the most memorable concert settings I have ever experienced. A true ski in/ski out set with Lake Tahoe in the distance. This is the kind of thing that can only be experienced at WinterWonderGrass!
2020, Symphony Park, The Smith Center For The Performing Arts, Las Vegas, Nevada

July 17th at Rancho San Rafael! Get your tickets at link in bio!
THE TAMING OF THE SHREW directed by @sarathebrune is fiercely delightful and @joystrotz has done it again gorgeously capturing the show in photo form. Have you captured it in your summer with tickets? Hurry!
We like it when Western lingo takes front and center stage - literally! This is Alex MacLeod and RattleSnail, whose performance also included the words Etiquettish, Prance, High Toned Dance, Togged Out, and Turkey Gobbler's Head. We'll just leave it at that. 📸: @chasmogrub

This giant steampunk turtle mutant vehicle, brought to life by the Hippo Love Crew, is shiny, full of fire, and always fun. Its huge metal shell is radically illuminated by more than 250 lights that change color and react to sound. Passengers can ride on top of its shell, or down below in its belly. Who knows its name?

Ever had a dream of dancing with a giant roaming #robot in the desert? This is the @AutonomousDancingDiscoBot by @Chris_Wollard, a friendly dancing robot mutant vehicle that loves to wind up and get down. Seen here in 2019 (photo by @burningmarknixon).
