Day N Vegas Highlights: Sold-out show leaves mark on Las Vegas music scene

Welcome to a showcase of the new generation of hip-hop.

Day N Vegas brought the heat to a chilly weekend in Las Vegas with a lineup boasting, chart-toppers, to underground performers, to some newcomers playing their very first show.

With festival season coming to a close, Day N Vegas sought to close it out with a pretty big line-up starting at noon and ending at midnight at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds.

Original headliners included Kendrick Lamar, J-Cole, and Travis Scott, who was replaced with Future x Metro Boomin, after a knee injury.

Although these names took the latest set times, this lineup was stacked with heavy hitters drawing out thousands of people for a sold-out show.

The setup was a bit different than other Las Vegas festivals like EDC at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway or Life is Beautiful which takes place downtown.

These festivals encompass art, interactive experiences, rides, games, and other activities for attendees along with the music.

Day N Vegas was set up more like a block party.

There were three stages, “Jackpot” (main stage), “Roll The Dice”, and “Hunnid”, the smallest stage.

There was a spacious VIP area with access to up-close viewing and a “Super VIP” area with portable suite-style boxes.

There was also a collection of carnival-style, food, and merchandise vendors. It was a simple set up, and it was packed.

We also had the chance to talk with Bizzy Bone, of the legendary group, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. He has a new album out called "Carbon Monoxide" and he spoke to us about the new generation of artists.

"It feels good. I'm independent so I can do what I want", he told us.
