MAJOR MUSIC FESTIVAL TO TAKE PLACE HALLOWEEN WEEKEND IN LAS VEGAS
INITIALLY CONFIRMED ACTS INCLUDE DAVE MATTHEWS & FRIENDS, JACK JOHNSON, WIDESREAD PANIC, FLAMING LIPS, THE SHINS, PRIMUS AND THE METERS

Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment, creators of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, are proud to announce: VEGOOSE. The inaugural multifaceted music festival will take place in Las Vegas over Halloween weekend. Tickets for two-day passes to the events at Sam Boyd Stadium will go on sale Saturday, August 13 at 10:00AM Pacific through www.vegoose.com.

Vegoose is set to be dynamic event with a broad range of entertainment and amusement options. The music programming will concentrate on acts that build upon the already festive Halloween-in-Vegas atmosphere with an eclectic lineup representing genres such as rock, funk, hip-hop, and more. Performers include Dave Matthews & Friends, Jack Johnson and Widespread Panic, the southern rock stalwarts whose annual Halloween weekend shows are always a highlight. Other notable rock acts include The Flaming Lips, Ween, Primus, and The Shins. The hip-hop world will be represented by classic and current acts such as Digable Planets and Lyrics Born. Vegoose will also host a rare performance by the original members of legendary New Orleans funk band the Meters. A complete list of confirmed acts follows, with more to be added in the coming weeks.

Beyond music, Vegoose will draw inspiration from Halloween and Vegas to create a unique visual and interactive experience. Utilizing the expansive resources of Las Vegas' entertainment community, the festival will include a multitude of performance artists, attractions and art installations.

A central festival complex at Sam Boyd Stadium will host two days of music and activities on Saturday and Sunday from noon into the evening. The event will also utilize a 20-acre grassy field behind the stadium. When the stadium performances end at around 10:30 pm, the festival will continue in a series of separately-ticketed late night shows in such venerable Vegas venues as House of Blues, The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel, The Orleans Arena and others. The late night shows will run for four nights, from Friday, October 28 to Monday, October 31. The initial round of late night shows and ticketing info will be announced soon.

With a seemingly endless selection of music and activities, Vegoose will be the ultimate fall destination for live music fans. The fact that it will take place in Las Vegas on Halloween weekend ensures an unparalleled entertainment experience. "This is about having a great big party," says AC Entertainment's Ashley Capps. "It's Halloween, it's Vegas, and it's an amazing collection of music and unique attractions."

This will be the craziest festival of all time. Why so much money when camping won't be allowed?

Well, I am definately conflicted. Obviously the lineup is off the hook. This will certainly be a great gathering of skilled performers. However, I am having a VERY hard time justifying the cost. $150+ dollars, which doesn't include camping or the late shows?!?! Sorry Superfly, but my momma didn't raise no fool. I know when I'm being ripped off. I'm gonna have to pass on this fest fellas. Shakedown Here I Come!

I'm really not sure what to think of this, I know for one thing that it puts many of the bands/artists who I would normally try to see around Halloween, in a festival that I could never afford to attend. I find it difficult to believe that they are all going to scurry off separately, to different corners of the nation to satisfy the demand for spectacular entertainment on all Hallow's Eve the next night. I have been troubled by the implications of Bonnaroo since its inception and subsequent success. If this is a one-off event, its insidious, malignant nature is somewhat reduced. However, as a possible annual occurrence, it represents a slick co-opting of many performers whose music I hold dear. I feel that Superfly owes it to the community to take a step back and consider the repercussions of manufacturing such mammoth, glossy events. It makes me think of when I collected comics from a young age until I was in my late teens. Initially they were mostly stock newsprint and cheaply produced. A little over a decade later though, it seemed that every issue was some sort of double-gatefold, foil embossed nonsense that was way overpriced. This sentiment is only all the more resonant and validated by Superfly's offering of VIP tickets for $442.50, making the $128.50 for the standard entry seem paltry. I quit buying comics. Enjoy your tower of Babel.

Why does there even need to be more, Wilson75? Maybe we can pack in enough artists so that everyone there can perform for a choice, juicy, ONE-minute slot. And nothing is quite as satisfying as about five extra musicians out on stage unfamiliar with the current band's equipment to the point of where it sounds like you're listening to a fifth-generation cassette tape of an 80's dead show.

I'm agreeing with some of you on the Vegoose ticket price, especially if none of the late nights aren't included. $150 covers the cost of all bands, which you won't be able to see. I was hoping for at least some continuity to the stage set up, but with the lineup announced it's obvious that it will be overlapping sets with mile-apart stages, etc.

I think this could have done better. Again. (remember Zooma?)

My issue is the same with most festivals. Be creative with the lineups. Please diversify the lineups. It's basically the same bands at ever festival. 5 or so years ago I would go to GOTV and I would see bands that I wouldn't then see later in the summer at Berkfest. Plus more improvisation, not less. Thanks

Sounds decent... but I agree tooooo much $... this is the base price for the stadium bands. your looking at VERY least $10 per late night- most likely 15 or 20- traveling to those places (cab fees most likely)... and my biggest problem is where are the small bands?

It seems like superfly likes to charge us tons of $ so they can pay many many bigggg name bands and put them all in one room. Id much rather have a couple big names, a good amount of up and coming smaller bands, and half that price.

My 2 cents- wont see you there :-/

As some of you have already stated, the lineup, although redundant, is definitely top notch. Maybe there will be more to come, who knows? I guess that I am "somewhat" disappointed though because I got "sucked in" by the rumors of potential appearances by Pearl Jam and The Black Crowes. I should know better than to listen to the rumor mongers... Anyway, there is no way in the world that UNLV or the Vegas fuzz would allow any kind of camping at this event under any circumstances, the festival would not be happening if camping were involved. The price is somewhat high considering that I go to High Sierra every summer for less, get more days and camping, but not the quality of bands, depending on who you talk to, that are playing this event. It will certainly be a very expensive weekend to say the least if you plan on going to late night shows every night as well as the fest itself during the day. The Vegas venues are notorious for overpricing their shows, especially anything that will be at the Hard Rock (Joint). In closing, all I can say is "buyer beware." Peace...

I believe good musicians deserve to make a living, so the ticket price is not a problem. I think the best concert festivals are always those that exclude the unemployed and indigent.

I am pretty excited to here of this festival. I was there for Phish weekend last year and there is nothing better than leaving the show and being in Vegas. The tickets are pretty pricey considering we can't camp. Overall, I will be there but if Umphreys is not playing late night I will be pretty disappointed. Wheres GORDO????

Being a native of LV, I know that I've gotten used to exorbident prices over the years. However, I think when you stop and really look at the talent line up and how much each big name would cost you individually,it really is not that bad. You can spend $150 on few rounds of drinks on the strip no problem. The cost of the late night shows will tell the tale regarding Superfly/Supercorporafly. I'm estatic about the whole deal and will be all in!!!!!

May I add one thing to the typical negative comments I read on this page: If you don't like the lineup, go start your own festival. If you can't camp, go gamble and win some cash to get a hotel. Same line up? When was the last time you saw the Meters? Odds are, never.

THIS LINEUP IS INSANE... gonna be a blast.

$150 for these 2 days is fine... there are condos off the strip that you can sleep 10 people for 300 a night... if you can't afford $30 a night to sleep... maybe think about skipping this festival and going out and interviewing for a job or 2.

Saw the Original Meters Reunion at the Warfield a few years ago... seeing them together is worth the admission itself

nobody is being ripped off here

Wow, it is insane to hear so much negativity from what is supposed to be a positive scene. So what if you can't camp in Vegas, it's Vegas?!!! This is not a usual lineup either, it is pretty extraordinary, and not that expensive compared to other big festivals. Plus, it is close to the west coast, which has been left out lately for good music festivals as compared to the east coast. So, I am glad I won't have to put up with all of you negative folks while I am having a kick ass time at Vegoose!

Negativity creates suffering...

I can't imagine the possibilities with all of these artists all in one town at the same time! Living in the Pacific Northwest makes it pretty damn difficult to see off-the-hook festivals like this one. I can't wait for it to happen! Plane tickets are booked, hotel is reserved and I'll be going in style for this one! I have to wonder why everyone is thinking it's too expensive... there is plenty to do and see for next to nothing (I just attended a kick-ass birthday party for Jerry for $5 with 5+ hours of great tunes including a guest appearance by Melvin Seals). Really now, a mega-festival deserves mega-ticket prices. No doubt in my mind it will be well worth it! Just like I do when Jazz Fest comes around or when I hear about Bonnaroo, if it's too much money for what I can afford at the time, I'm just somewhere else when it happens. Stop your bitching!!! Most of us deadheads/phishkids/newbies to the scene are kind-hearted folks. As far as I'm concerned, let the bitter ones stay home. When everyone on the west coast feels the ground shaking on Halloween, it won't be an earthquake...

Can't wait to groove with you all!!!

I'm glad this festival is happening! Its going to be a hoot man! It was always fun to have The Grateful Dead here in Vegas from '91 to '95. Two worlds crashing into each other, Las Vegas, & the Deadheads! Wow, and this is on Halloween weekend! Theres lots of space in Lake Mead to camp, a thousands of hotels to check into. I wonder if Las Vegas JamBand Society is happy to see this event as they always complained about the jamband scene being zero here. Well, now we have one, and I want it to stay, and I'd like to see two each year!!! I'd like to see one in late Spring, and this one on Halloween! And lets face it people, ticket prices will always be on the rise...

hi all---I'm not only one of the newbies...but I've only ever seen Moe. of those on the lineup. My husband..quite the experienced retired Phishead is the leader on this but I'm psyched anyway! Halloween, Festival, Vegas...come on..price???? If partying properly, price will be a distant memory two hours after the plane landing!!! I'm saving up my pennies as of now! Too bad it's only the two of us--and we can't really find anyone else from our area (Houston) who's also heading that way. Oh..what hotels are you guys picking?? First time in Vegas...and suggestions?

All the negativity is definately a buzz killer, everyone that can't afford $6.70 per band is not thinking of the price of an unforgettable experience. How often does a $100 by an everlasting memory, Most of you spend that on a bag and can't remember where you put your shoes.This is no mediocre festival AC/Superfly always make it worth it, Im glad i dont have to camp, it was fine when i was younger after four years on bonnaroo im ready for a hotel and shower. Well if your bitchin; stay home see if it hurts my weekend. Im flying from georgia and for cheap flights and cheap hotel rates, Vegas is by far the best destination. To all that are going, hell ya see ya there. Well worth the money look forward to the party of a lifetime.

Glad to see some more positive comments coming over the waves for what be an out of control time!If the late night shows aren't to over priced(i.e. The Hard Rock-he's 100% right about them)it will make it unforgettable! for those wondering about good, close cheap places to stay. I suggest either sunset station,boulder station,the fiesta or Sams Town. There are also a few exetended stay places over off of boulder hwy as well.

Anyone who is heading to sin city for the fest should look into the "Wild, Wild, West" hotel/casino. Not the greatest place in the world but they will have cheaper rates than some of the others. WWW sits on the west side of the strip on Tropicana. Went there the other night for a "Jerryfest" and it was really cool. Check it out, it is part of the station casinos chain but is not up to some of their other properties.

A ticket to see U2 live costs $100, and that's in the nosebleeds, if you can get one - one band, 3 hours of music. For $30/more, you have the choice of catching 27 different artists over the course of 22 hours.

So all of you whiners, enough already. You're arguments are weak, they don't hold up. $128 is more than fair, and we should be thanking A/C Superfly for keeping this event affordable..

ripoff! yah yah all you people with money or time and money you think this is such a value? you must be high. i mean i agree the lineup is sick, but lets be realistic, someone said dreamfest since the dead were gone? er uh, houser and phish are gone, and the jam scene has been left with bands that aren’t even worth traveling to see, but that said i love the lineup and it is the best festival lineup i have seen since original bonnaroo. some things to consider though... superfly, ac, and maybe another planet (it seems) are in cahoots to bring you music without ticketbastard right? then how the hell are they charging over $14 per TICKET just in fees? (and dont blame the silver bowl) they say they will keep the prices down then gank you for 150 bucks for a two day festival. Also everyone talks about 6 bucks a band or whatever. please. you really think you will have the chance to see all of those bands? or is it goint to be like bumbershoot or bonnaroo where half the bands you want to see are playing when the other half you want to see are playing? also what about spending upwards of 11 hours in a stadium two days in a row with no ins and outs? wow thats going to add some expense, just for water even as someone mentioned.

dont get down on people saying their opinion about this being a ripoff just cause you want to be in your little fantasy world of justification. this trip will cost 11-1300 for anyone almost irregardless of how they manage their costs.

i have never had such a hard time deciding on whether or not to go to something, vegas, hotels, showers, gambling, drinking, good eats, no indignant scum bag tour rats (or less at least) but all in all the cost is overwhelming.

lastly, it is very lame that they didnt go ahead and announce the night shows so that people can really know what is going on and then decide. they act as if eveyone has over a grand to just spend on a whim to go to a sick festival. very frustrating

final analysis, yes this is a sick festival and IF it will be a lifetime event for you personally (maybe especially for some newbies) then by all means you should go, but for the rest of us to whom this is just another musical event, where the ideal and fantasy will never live up to the hype, then i would take your money and go to hawaii for a real vacation, or how about just going to san francisco for a week in the fall and catch a 3 night run in the warfield and a couple of fillmore shows, not to mention being in a world class city then as well.

flame away at this post, i dont really care. vegoose is an organized ripoff, welcome to the corporate age

Why are some of u complaining about the ticket cost?I feel that 130.00 is more than resonable considering the ticket prices you would have to pay to see each og these bands individualy.The cost of four shows would cost you more than 130.00. The experinace of Vegas over the wekend is worth the money. if you dont have the money dont go. it only runnin me 525 for a round trip airline ticket from Boston and 4 nights at a hotel. Go to expidia or travelosity if you are lokkin for a deal. Anyways this shows gonna be phat, i know im lookinj forward to it.

get first dibs on late night & halloween show
dibs out of 40,000 for venues that hold 5,000 at best
will still be hard to get & should sell right out
good luck seeing the other shows
without buying festival tickets
for all those compaining about money
if you really knew how awesome this was going to be
the $ wouldn't make a difference

One more thought...leave? during this line-up? are you kidding? You can't see it all as it is, and you want in & out privleges? People, people, people...this is a music festival! Be festive! Come for the music! Have fun! Rack up a little more debt, if you have too. It's all good!

Vegoose will great but I sure hope they announce some different shows on Halloween. I don't think Widespread and Ween are the best choices, Cheese or les would be way better on Halloween.
P.S. or even some Particle!!

Vegas Baby! My fondest memories EVER were all the years following the Dead & Deadheads into VEGAS! Imagine if you will... the lights, the sounds, the smells, the .25 beers, the dancers, the shows, the beautiful brothers, the beautiful sisters, the smiles, the laughs, the weddings, the lot, the SHAKEDOWN, the CAMPING at LAKE MEAD, the drums, the tye dyes, the spinners, the hippie circus, the music, the trips or treats (or both) and you! Can't wait to see all my brothers & sisters at yet another kind VEGAS gathering! YEAAAAA BABY!!!!!! Might not afford the Vegoose tickets after airfare, car rental, and Cheese tickets, but we'll see you on shakedown! Much respect ~ Sister Sunshine www.sunshinestyle.net
