Matinee Las Vegas Festival May 24-27, 2013

The one in the middle…YES PLEASE!

Matinée is asking fans to “feel the revolution” this Memorial Day – the party revolution, that is.  The festival that has become world famous for
re-imagining the elaborate party experience
with blazing pyrotechnics and production by Cirque du Soleil and Matinée Ibiza, returns to Las Vegas with the
biggest dance festival of the summer. Taking place
Friday, May 24th thru Monday, May 27th, MATINÉE LAS VEGAS FESTIVAL will play host to over 8,000 clubbers dancing to twenty of the world’s leading
DJs at eight high-energy party events.

“In todays over technologized world, people want a real
interactive experience,”
explains Paul Nicholls, part of the production
team behind Matinée North America.
  “We combine fantasy elements from concerts,
theatrical stage shows, Hollywood films and even video games into one giant offline spectacle.”

“A Matinée party is all about awe and extravagance,” continues Matinée
North America’s Patrick Crough. “We partner with the hottest and most
cutting-edge acts from around the world
.  For this year’s MATINÉE LAS VEGAS FESTIVAL, we’ve
teamed up with the Las Vegas production, Absinthe. We are integrating
several of their amazing Cirque acts into our main events. It will be
breathtaking.

Matinée launched over fifteen years ago in Ibiza. Since
then, it has evolved internationally with lavish events
including CircuitFestival
Barcelona

When party founders decided to expand the brand into North America, they
asked Crough and Jake Resnicow to oversee and produce all parties in the USA
and Canada. 

They made their Las Vegas debut in 2011 with the first Matinée Las Vegas Festival.  It included jaw-dropping
spectacles
, including one that involved synchronized
swimmers performing in a glass pool of water set on fire.  The evening capped with a surprise performance by pop singer Natasha Bedingfield. 

“Matinée raises the bar on nightlife,” says Jake Resnicow. “Whether
in the heart of Manhattan or on the beaches of Miami, a Matinée event is meant
to take revelers out of body and beyond the confines of their imagination.” 

 

Last year’s MATINÉE LAS VEGAS FESTIVAL
was wildly successful.  The main event
at Rain Nightclub in the Palms
Hotel featured Spanish dancers, fire displays and live acts by Cirque Du
Soleil. 
The weekend’s big surprise was the large crowd of men
that packed the Monday Pool Party.  Says
Nicholls, “It was a party we added at the last minute because pre-sales
were so high.  It ended up being a really
great way to close the long weekend.”

They plan to pull out even more stops this Memorial Day.  They
have
upgraded
the main event to one of Vegas’ hottest and most exclusive clubs, Vanity at
Hard Rock. The dance floor is a massive 14,000 square-feet with an outdoor
terrace and fire pits.

The weekend will feature eight events over four days and nights, including
main events and after-hour parties at the city’s hottest clubs, as well as pool
parties at the weekend’s host hotel, Rumor.
Each party will feature original
themes designed to take revelers on a weekend-long journey.

The DJ line-up includes some of
the world’s most innovative icons in dance music, including
Matinée Spain all-star
DJs Taito Tikaro, Javier Medina and Flavio Zarza.  Billboard #1 remixers/producers Hector
Fonseca, Alyson Calagna, DJ Theresa, Ed Baily, Brazil’s Rodolfo Bravat, and
red-hot rising stars Nina Flowers, Justin Dawson, Ryan Kenney, Luis Perez,
Derek Monteiro and Billy Lace will also headline.


Weekend passes start at $99. The exclusive and luxurious Rumor Hotel (455 East
Harmon Avenue, Las Vegas) is the host hotel for
MATINÉE Las
Vegas Festival. 
Suites start at $129/night.  Rumor will also provide guests with
complimentary shuttle service to all weekend events.
