The lineup thus far includes Stevie Nicks, Carlos Santana, Duncan Sheik, Susanna Hoffs, Steve Earle, Alpha Rev, Lit, Courrier, Paul Adelstein’s band Doris, Faulkner, Angels Landing, Feral Vinca, Laura Warshauer, Brooke Palsson, Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, SLATER, Stellar Corpses, The NowhereNauts, Beware of Darkness, Tora, Cheating Daylight, and Elliot Root, with many more to be announced soon.
November’s Sunset Sessions Vegas at The Cosmopolitan will be the 18th event in 15 years and for the first time ever, the Main Stage shows will be open to the public to benefit charities all over the world (of the ARTISTS choices)! CBS’s Las Vegas Radio stations 94.1 The Mix and 107.5 KXTE will host the entire event. Other great radio stations across the country will also send winners to participate in this New Music Adventure and bring awareness to the charities each artist designates.
Although the event is available to the public, tickets cannot be purchased. Event-goers can secure tickets by committing their time or money to one of several nonprofit organizations, including Communities in Schools of Nevada, Three Square, Opportunity Village MusiCares and many more to be announced!
