LAVO Las Vegas and Marquee Las Vegas have joined forces with Insomniac Events to host an unprecedented array of the world’s top-tier underground artists for the Las Vegas Loves Techno event series as a part of EDC Week, June 20th – June 24th. This series marks a new era in the Las Vegas music scene as LAVO and Marquee are pioneering the deviation from dance music’s status quo.
By hosting acts such as the Dirtybird label head, Claude VonStroke, the legendary Carl Cox, Sasha, and equally prolific Dubfire, among others, LAVO and Marquee Las Vegas display their all-embracing ideals that establish them as tastemakers with a forward-thinking mentality. They are pushing the boundaries of typical music programming within Sin City to bring something fresh and distinctive to their loyal patrons.
