What can we say? Nevada’s an inspiring place. No wonder music and arts enthusiasts—and creators—flock here from all over the world. Live music fan? Pick a genre, any genre. Then head to multi-day music festivals that take over entire districts and even towns, or keep it chill with a symphony on the beach with Lake Tahoe in the background or an old cowboy band plucking away at a nationally recognized poetry festival. Obviously, Las Vegas reigns supreme with stage shows and productions that set the global standard; however, with award-winning performing arts centers in our metros and our smaller communities, lovers of the arts are treated to a diverse array of entertainment all around the Silver State, from off-Broadway residencies to Shakespeare classics at the beach. Get with the program and explore what Nevada’s arts and music scenes have in store for you.

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.
