Rock of Vegas concert series celebrates eight years

From superstars taking the stage in mega resorts to on-the-street performers, there’s no shortage of music, theatrics and entertainment in Vegas.

This summer, like every summer, the Fremont Street Experience offers some of Sin City’s best free live music.

The venue’s Rock of Vegas concert series, which is celebrating its eighth anniversary, has given locals and Vegas visitors alike the chance party the night away to some of the world’s top names in music.

It’s all live, in-person — and free of change.

From Memorial Day to Labor Day, well-known performers jam each week at three stages. A rotating schedule of talent spans every musical genre imaginable.

All the while, the party atmosphere of the Fremont Street Experience means the celebration’s not limited to the stage. It’s the perfect place for concert-goers to let loose, listen to music and dance like nobody’s watching.

Ready to rock? Summer is here. That means it’s time to grab a cocktail, claim your spot in front of the stage and create new musical memories in downtown Vegas.

This year’s series kicked off on Memorial Day with legendary rocker Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. But the party’s just getting started.

All performances begin at 9 p.m., no ticket required. Need more? For complete information about headliner concerts and nightly entertainment, head online to
