In with the old and in with the new? This seems to be iHeartRadio's plan this year as the newly announced lineup reflects a few acts who have previously graced the stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena along with some first time performers.
This fourth edition of the two-day, multi-genre music festival includes performances by Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Usher, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Motley Crue, Zac Brown Band, One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Paramore, Iggy Azalea, Train, Eric Church, Lorde, Calvin Harris, Bastille and Steve Aoki. The acts will be spread out over September 19 and 20, with a detailed schedule still to come.

<>Update at bottom of post!
It’s been ten years since the iconic, exaltation-inducing Vermont quartet known as Phish last delivered a brain-melting performance in the city of Las Vegas. But as gamblers in this town are keenly aware, all streaks — hot or cold — are inevitably destined to be broken.
In the midst of a 3.0 summer tour confined mainly to the east coast and on the heels of their first studio album release since 2009’s Joy, VegasChatter has learned from a high-ranking source at MGM Grand that Phish are finally ready to return to Sin City for the first time since rocking the Thomas & Mack Center in 2004 with a run of shows at MGM Grand Garden Arena for this fall’s yet-to-be-announced tour.

Purchased and closed by Tony Hsieh and company in 2013, the music venue will open again August 25 with a performance from Indie Rock stalwarts, Built To Spill. Heavy remodeling is lengthening the building to allow for a new kitchen serving sloppy joes, deviled eggs and other bar food. Guests will also find a new entrance from Fremont Street and a brand new sound system.

If Seinfeld’s Festivus didn’t refer to a specific day that’s more or less become an accepted parody holiday, it would surely refer to this third week of July where more Las Vegas festivals were announced than new Weird Al songs.
Almost true. We’ve known about the lineup for late October’s Life is Beautiful Festival for a bit now, but in the past week, details have emerged on two popular returning festival events and one brand new one coming to Sin City this fall.

A Vegas residency isn't over yet, a bit of Vegas past meets Vegas present and a Vegas parody aims to garner more laughs. Here's how Vegas is entertaining us now:
○Olivia Newton-John wouldn't mind a little more love at Flamingo. Her Summer Nights residency, originally due to run through August, has been extended into January 2015. Tickets for new dates go on sale this Friday, July 11. (Although, Total Rewards members can purchase beginning tomorrow.) Pricing ranges from $70 to $350 if you add in a meet-and-greet.

Life is about to get even more beautiful again in Las Vegas. The Life is Beautiful Festival, held in downtown Las Vegas, is back for its second edition October 24-26, featuring headliners including Foo Fighters, Kanye West and Outkast. The fest calls itself “an inspirational social platform dedicated to helping people conquer their fears and chase their dreams,” a.k.a. a music, arts and food fest that, along with the Electric Daisy Carnival, has helped to put Las Vegas on the music festival map.
Last year’s event featured The Killers, Kings of Leon and Imagine Dragons, plus delicious food from the likes of Cat Cora, Hubert Keller and Jet Tila. This year’s culinary lineup again features those three plus Giada De Laurentiis, José Andrés, Bruce and Eric Bromberg, Shawn McClain and Duff Goldman, among others. Early bird tickets are already sold out, but general tickets go on sale Thursday, June 26 at 10 a.m. Three-day passes (there will be no single-day admissions) will range from $199.50 to $595, depending on how special you want to be regarded.

Motley Brews, local creators of beer-centric festivals and events has created a downtown three event series titled Open Container. It's a coincidental play on the Fremont drinking crackdown going down. Instead, it's meant as an intentional play on its host location, the Container Park. However, since the open-air mall is restricted to those 21 and over after 9 p.m. when this series is set to begin, it probably doesn't work in that regard, either.

Set to fall over two consecutive weekends in May 2015, the exact dates will be May 8-9 and May 15-16. After examining rate calendars for MGM Resorts, erm, resorts (the company will be the official host of the landmark event and is building a City of Rock for it across from SLS Las Vegas), it looks like pricing is already being impacted with Bellagio at a starting rate of $599 for one of those nights while Circus Circus checks in at the $250 a night range.

Earlier this year, we wondered if the Purple Reign was coming to an end at Planet Hollywood. A few weeks later, we also reported on the likelihood Jeff Dunham would become PHamous this November as part of a Las Vegas residency. We can now confirm both.
