The thrill of seeing one's favorite musicians in concert often alleviates the stress of modern life and the sweaty delirium from contracting Beatlemania. Enjoy an aural antidote with today's Groupon to the Nevada Wild Fest in Henderson at the Henderson Pavilion. Choose between the following options:
- For $9, you get two general-admission tickets (an $18 value).

The Nevada Wild Fest delights guests of all ages with an assortment of activities and attractions, including myriad live performances by established headlining acts and emerging artists alike. On the Pavilion Stage, the concert series kicks off on Wednesday with Holly Madison, followed by the guitar stylings of Esteban, who coaxes exuberant sways out of even the most introverted of hips. On Thursday, Kevin Cadogan of Third Eye Blind treats cochleae to a rock-gilded sonic feast, and Grammy-grabbing Juice Newton’s soulful vocals unleash the communal lighter-igniting reflex of Friday-night audiences. As seating for all headliner concerts is on a first-come, first-served basis, applause generators should arrive early to snag a perch and demarcate their turf with precisely laid duct tape perimeters and stone-faced border collies.
Ears craving freshly-plucked aural sustenance can drink in the mellifluous tunes spouting from the festival stage, basking in the music of up-and-coming artists such as MP&Co. and Leaving Springfield. Meanwhile, miniature festivalgoers sashay to the Discount Tire Barn stage for kid-friendly acts, including story webs spun by expert raconteur Jim Cogan. Cheer on fledgling performers during the talent contest that pits entertainers against each other as they jockey for the chance to play with the festival’s headliners and have their names tattooed on the biceps of every audience member. Once inner rhythm hankerings have been sated, guests can venture to the dock dogs competition to watch four-legged friends leap and retrieve to compete for distance. For an additional fee, customers can experience the festival's other attractions, including a haunted house and zipline.
