Even in a city billed as the “Entertainment Capital of the World,” it can often be difficult for a professional musician to find a job. To keep their chops sharp, and hopefully land a paying gig, many experienced Las Vegas-based performers are turning to the Tap House’s open-mic every Monday night for exposure. The Los Angeles Times captures the essence of these weekly gatherings, which often consist largely of performers performing for other performers, and have a vibe that recaptures the lounges of Old Vegas.

Gorillaz are coming to Las Vegas for the first time ever. 2016’s Grammy winner for best new artist, Chance the Rapper, will return. English rockers Muse will bring their dizzying live show to the streets of Downtown. And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
