Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Amazon is brought it’s annual re:Invent Conference back to Las Vegas Dec. 2 through Dec. 7 to share new products and solutions from AWS (Amazon Web Service) leaders.

The week-long event‘s afterparty has been private since 2012, but this year, the Intersect Festival will be open to the public.

Intersect festivities will take place Dec. 6 and 7 on the Las Vegas Festival Grounds on W. Sahara Avenue.

AWS says that Intersect 2019 will have the most state-of-the-art productions around and more than 30 performances will take place on the three indoor stages; the Supernova, Infinity and The Dome.

The Intersect Festival is set to feature a long list of popular artists who will perform, including Kacey Musgraves, Beck, Chvrches, Foo Fighters, Beck, and Anderson.Paak to name a few.

Amazon announced it teamed up and will collaborate with already seasoned festival Life Is Beautiful to make the Intersect Festival even better.

Thus far, the Intersect Festival has helped raise $100k to support arts initiatives in the Las Vegas community through the Mayor’s Fund for LIFE.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is planning to honor women in technology by giving concert-goers an artistic and high-tech digital experience that will include a 500-drone light show by Intel called UPLIFT. This experience is scheduled to take place during Kacey Musgraves’ performance.

Experiences include digital art installations and post-apocalyptic dodgeball tournaments. Classic arcade games, gourmet food and more will also be available to festival-goers.

The festival is open to all ages, however, children under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult. Ages 4 & under are admitted for free.
