No matter how many festivals you’ve attended, you’ve never been to one like Emerge before … well, unless you went to last year’s inaugural edition. But really, aside from its mission—to unite music, speakers and socially conscious themes—Emerge 2.0 won’t be all that similar to its predecessor, either.
This time, you’ll remain at a single property, the Hard Rock Hotel, to take in all that Emerge has to offer. The fest has been refocused and condensed into two, fat-free days stacked with big names like Brandon Flowers, Gerard Way, Andrew Bird and Laura Jane Grace and rising stars you’ll be hearing a whole lot more from soon.
We suggest digging deep into the 2019 lineup before planning your weekend, starting with our interviews and our picks to produce some of the festival’s most memorable performances.
EMERGE May 31 & June 1, times vary, $199/weekend, $130/day, $25-$55/show. Hard Rock Hotel, emergelv.com.
