The first Emerge Music and Impact Conference, taking place November 16-18 at various venues in Las Vegas’ tourist corridor, has only announced part of its 100-artist, 30-speaker lineup—which is the perfect excuse for an early-bird sale.

VIP passes (which include bottomless booze) will go for $425 and Industry VIP passes (which come with workspace/lounge privileges) will go for $485. All passes will be available at emergelv.com.
