During the concert extravaganza of the Country Superstars Tribute, four talented singers team up with a five-piece band to celebrate twangy legends such as Garth Brooks and Willie Nelson in a posh, 600-seat concert hall. After a collection of songs from Reba McEntire's Grammy-winning oeuvre, a Tim McGraw tribute artist culls from the star's 32 No. 1 hits, from the rascally "I Like It, I Love It" to a musical rendition of Munch's The Scream. In addition to mastering singers' tale-spinning vocals, tribute artists also capture their signature styles, from Kenny Chesney's signature cowboy hat to Reba's ubiquitous propeller beanie.
As the glitzy and glamorous show travels through time to re-tell of the story of the city's most colorful characters, including Elvis, the Rat Pack, Tina Turner, and Elton John (to name a few), a heralded cast reanimates vintage Vegas scenes to the robust rhythms of a live, big-band orchestra—singing, twirling, and dancing their way through a fast-paced Sin City spectacle of lights, glitter, butter, and bravado. Relive the decadence of the '70s TV era with a Sonny and Cher number, or delight a stalwart Elvis believer by dangling an undead version of the King before his or her very eyes. As your eyes fill with flashbacks to the Technicolor glory days of desert-based hedonism, bask in a nostalgic wonderland of leggy kick lines, dapper tuxedos, clinking cocktails, and a rat pack that's far more elegant than the one currently infesting the crawlspace back home.
Although most people traditionally try to steer clear of the world of organized crime, Mob Attraction Las Vegas pulls them back in with an interactive journey into the underworld’s gritty underbelly. Inside the museum’s recently upgraded space, guests face off with actors and 3-D holograms of famous film crime bosses, such as James Caan and Frank Vincent. A collection of authentic, never-before-seen memorabilia, photos, and videos, as well as a fully interactive courthouse and jail, marry museum-like intrigue with performance art, granting an unprecedented access into the private lives of real gangsters Ben “Bugsy” Siegel, Tony Spilotro, and Meyer Lansky.
With classes designed to meet the needs of both beginner and advanced dancers, Tunay Ink instructors educate hip-hop hopefuls in the techniques and aerobic benefits of this popular street dancing style. Amid solid beats and graffitied brick walls, dance disciples can learn the primary elements of breaking before defying gravity and hair-spray hold with head spins. The popping savvy can lord over subservient muscle serfs with a series of classes that teach both popping techniques and effective employment of hip-hop lingo, or weekly locking classes that appeal to the acrobatically inclined with physically demanding moves, such as carrying a sleeper couch up three flights of stairs.
Founded in the spirit of the late Dennis Hopper’s CineVegas festival, the Vegas Indie Film Fest! celebrates self-produced works from established directors and first-time creators alike.

Past events have been attended by the likes of Wayne Newton and Ted V. Mikels.
