THE INTERSECTION OF SOCIAL JUSTICE, ART AND MUSIC

We know the world feels scary right now but, here at Emerge, we don’t give in to the comforts of apathy when discovery, progress, and innovation make our hearts pound and our eyes mist up.

For two days, we will dive into themes that matter through live musical performances, passionate storytelling, progressive art, crafted parties and immersive experiences.

EMERGE is a safer space to celebrate diverse, interesting and emerging voices and perspectives. A blank canvas to discover or refine your own place in the world alongside a community of passionate creatives.

THE EXPERIENCE

Emerge features a totally new, blended format. What does that mean? You can watch a musician perform while in an art installation, followed immediately by fire slam poetry, and a talk from an activist, all in one showcase. Our minds are curious and open to lots of stimulus, so let’s stimulate.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
-Margaret Mead

MAIN SHOWCASES

These are the main events — four individually themed and immersive experiences, each diving into a specific theme. No need to choose from hundreds of events, even attendee gets to experience every showcase together.

CRAFTED
COLLISIONS

Where we dive down the rabbit hole to celebrate more detailed topics and storylines, each extra experiences builds upon the Emerge core program.

ESCAPE THE ECHO CHAMBER

WHERE DO WE GO? 

Where can we take risks on music we’ve never heard? Where can we willfully challenge our worldview? Where do we go to imagine a better world and plan our next move?

WE LOOKED. 

We went to the festivals. We listened to the podcasts. We refreshed our Twitter feeds. Something was missing… a gathering space for people who want to shatter the status quo.

WE BUILT EMERGE. 

Three days of new music, new ideas, and a non-stop celebration of everything that makes you unique. Discover your newest passion, meet your next collaborator, and populate your next year’s playlist.

RETHINKING LAS VEGAS

Las Vegas has always been knows as one of the world’s creative hubs for the entertainment community. In recent years, it’s become equally known as a battleground community, a political locale of focus during each election cycle. We make Las Vegas our home base because of it’s diverse, passionate local community and the representation of minority interests we highlight on our program throughout the city. Come experience a different side of Las Vegas with Emerge.
