Day N Vegas is the wildly popular music festival that rocks the desert city. It was canceled in 2020, and fans of the festival have been waiting eagerly to find out if and when it would return for 2021. Although this is only the festival’s second official year, it’s already a Vegas staple with a massive fan base. Now we have a November date, and a star-studded lineup that is bringing the heat to the Vegas Autumn. Day N Vegas headliners include Kendrick Lamar, Tyler, the Creator, and more.

The 2021 lineup for Day N Vegas is huge, bringing in artists from across the music spectrum, with a focus on hip-hop.

Friday night’s lineup includes:

  • Kendrick Lamar
  • Dababy
  • YG
  • Ari Lennox
  • Polo G
  • IDK, and more.

Saturday’s lineup includes:

  • Travis Scott
  • Lil Baby
  • Doja Cat
  • Saweetie
  • Baby Keem
  • Saba, plus more.

And the final night, Sunday, includes:

  • Tyler, The Creator
  • SZA
  • Lil Uzi Vert
  • Snoh Aalegra
  • Don Toliver
  • Kalan.FrFr, plus more.

This headlining performance by Lamar marks his only announced live performance of 2021, at least so far. Lamar will be performing songs from albums Section.80 to DAMN. The entire production is hosted by Goldenvoice, and if it’s even fractionally as successful as 2019’s festival, it’s going to be huge. MSN shared of the festival’s roots; “Day N Vegas launched in 2019 with sets from J. Cole, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Migos, 21 Savage, Tyler, Lil Uzi Vert, Miguel and Summer Walker, among others.”

When and Where

The festival is happening Friday November 12th, Saturday November 13th, and Sunday, November 14th. The vaunted Las Vegas Festival Grounds will play host to the event, allowing for plenty of room for guests and maybe even a little elbow room.

People who hope to attend can register here for a presale code, giving them the very first chance to buy tickets. Those with special access to the presale will be able to start purchasing tickets June 18th at 12 noon PST. For the general public, remaining tickets will be available June 18th at 5PM PST. Guests looking to attend all three days can purchase tickets starting at $399, with a VIP option running $699. If you just want a single day pass, it’ll run you around $199. Organizers of the event consider it important to provide options to attendees, and a payment plan is available with 25% down and 3 equal payments, making the concerts far more accessible to the average American than many festival tickets.

Vegas Fall Music Scene is Going to be Hot

Las Vegas

Day N Vegas returning this year is huge news, and fans of the scene are jubilant online, jostling for a place in the presale line. On Twitter and Facebook, some fans are pointing out that the 2021 lineup looks nearly identical to 2019, but with the addition of SZA and Snoh Aalegra, and the draw of Lamar focusing on his popular Section.80 album. However similar the 2021 lineup is to 2019, people are still chomping at the bit to get their tickets.

And Day N Vegas isn’t the only major event this Fall in Las Vegas. The entire scene has burst to life again after the virtual wasteland of 2020. Resorts World and Virgin Hotels are kicking off the summer with their Grand Openings in July and June respectively, and performers to grace the desert city this Summer and Fall include Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Lionel Richie, Garth Brooks, Celine Dion, Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, J Balvin and so much more.

Although the resorts and entertainment venues in Vegas are deeply competitive, it’s good news to all when another big concert is announced. It’s another reminder that normalcy is just around the corner, and Vegas has weathered the impossible storm of the past year. Day N Vegas is another fantastic sign for Vegas; the all-star lineup of hip-hop stars and excitement of fans is a tangible measurement of how far the city has recovered, and how much farther it will go before the year is out.
