Article Contributed by Shakedown Vegas | Published on Friday, May 24, 2024

Following an unparalleled weekend of music, family, and the spirit of the Grateful Dead, Shakedown Las Vegas is thrilled to announce the resounding success of our opening weekend. We extend our deepest gratitude to the thousands of Deadheads who helped us welcome Dead & Company to the Sphere for an unforgettable residency in Sin City. Everyone who attended and shared the magic with their communities near and far contributed to an experience none of us will forget any time soon.

As a thank you to fans for supporting their favorite Shakedown artists, musicians, and vendors, the first 100 attendees through the gate at 11 AM on Friday, May 24th, will receive a limited edition Shakedown Vegas Poker Chip, with artwork by renowned blotter artist Dan Dubois.

This Weekend’s Highlights:


If you’re a fan of the endless groove and improvisational spirit that defines the jam band scene, DJ Logic is a treat. This turntable wizard has been shaking up the music world since the early nineties, seamlessly blending jazz, hip-hop, and jam to create an unforgettable sonic experience. Whether he’s spinning alongside legends like Bob Weir and John Mayer or throwing down with Blues Traveler in The John Popper Project, DJ Logic knows how to keep the vibe alive.

We are excited to welcome DJ Logic as our headliner this weekend, playing on both our main stage and Shakedown After Dark this Friday, June 24th. On the heels of two SOLD OUT shows last weekend, this event is going to be a heater! Get there as soon as you leave the Sphere to ensure entry to this FREE event! Joining him on our weekend roster are the extremely talented Jimmy Carpenter and Mums The Word, promising an unforgettable experience for all attendees. For the complete schedule, check out our Music Calendar.


In response to popular demand, SHAKEDOWN AFTER DARK is expanding to three nights a week. Starting this week, enjoy live music every show night in the Copa Room at the Tuscany Suites & Casino. These FREE events are exclusively for guests 21+ and will run from 11 PM to 2 AM/3 AM. Don’t miss out on these late-night festivities that keep the party going!

Have a great holiday weekend in Vegas!

Las Vegas Local - Artist Spotlight

This weekend, we are delighted to feature Dave from Griddle Art, a local Las Vegas artist known for his unique and innovative medium. Dave’s art involves using black brick oil to clean his griddle, which leaves a film that he colors with spices or mixed culinary ingredients. This creates a stunning, vibrant design unlike anything you’ve seen before. Visit Dave’s booth on Saturday and Sunday to witness his extraordinary work and learn more about his artistic process.
