Free live music returns to Fremont Street Experience June 1

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — If you’re looking to get down and party, the Fremont Street Experience will be the place to be come June 1. Free live music will return to the Downtown Las Vegas destination at 12:01 a.m.

This comes after the Clark County Commission announced the county will fully reopen on that same date. Restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings and dancing will be lifted.

Visitors and locals will soon have the full downtown Las Vegas experience, again.

The stages have sat empty for the past year due to COVID restrictions, but guests will soon be able to enjoy the entertainment nightly at all three stages, with the full schedule to be announced next week, according to a tweet from the experience.

Locals and tourists told 8 News Now that they are excited about the return of live music because it will bring more foot traffic to businesses in the area and provide opportunities for those in the music industry to perform.

“I’ve been here since this place was nonexistent of music. It was like once a year a big band would come. So, now it’s like 24/7. It’s important. I think it’s extremely important. I’m glad it’s going to be back 100%,” said Mardis Lawson, a Las Vegas resident.

“When it was COVID, we couldn’t make any money. But now that it’s over, we can make our money back,” said Yo’hance Hunter, a Houston music manager.

The Fremont Street Experience states on its website that it will follow the state’s COVID-19 guidelines.
