Being under 21 in Vegas sucks, especially for electronic-music fans who can’t get into the megaclubs. Fortunately for the 18-and-up crowd, RVLTN (Ravealation) has revived the dance-party options for the younger set, while also bringing seasoned partiers more variety than the same old sounds on the Strip. In honor of RVLTN’s two-year anniversary, the crew is planning its biggest production to date at the Joint the night after Christmas.

“We’re building the stage and all of the production from scratch,” says Joe Borusiewicz, RVLTN’s director of business development. “As far as the lineup goes, we tried to keep it diverse, and we wanted to have it flow as well so that it all made sense on a single stage and at the same time, try to have something there for everybody.

“Last year’s anniversary was kick-ass; we sold out Brooklyn Bowl with Bro Safari. So this is year No. 2 [and] it’s going better, so hopefully it’s awesome.”

The talent the RVLTN team has tapped in honor of the occasion blurs genres, starting with headliner Seven Lions. “It seems like every time Seven Lions has been here outside of EDC, it’s been in a club setting where he can’t necessarily get as out-of-the-box with his format as he would like to do,” Borusiewicz says. “We’re hyped to be able to give him free rein here to do whatever he wants and take everybody on a journey for 90 minutes.”

Also on the docket: Ookay. “He started out kind of doing the trap thing,” Borusiewicz says. “He’s done a couple of more house-y crossover tunes. He’s played pretty much every major festival this year: TomorrowWorld, EDC, the big stuff, so he should be a pretty good lead into it.”

Attendees will also get to check out sets from Botnek, Dr. Fresch and Halfway House.

RVLTN 2-Year Anniversary With Seven Lions, Ookay, Botnek, Dr. Fresch, Halfway House. December 26, 8 p.m., $30-$60. The Joint, 702-693-5222.
