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.

They are pushing the boundaries of typical music programming within Sin City to bring something fresh and distinctive to their loyal patrons.

Early last Saturday morning, my friends and I made our way back to the west side from downtown LA, only to rest and prepare for our journey inland to Insomniac’s first Halloween massive, Escape From Wonderland. See what it was all about after the jump… Continue Reading
