Fremont Street Experience
Ever stroll down Fremont Street and think, “Man, that big-ass screen would be so cool for a dance party!”? Famed DJ/VJ Roonie G is bringing that to life this weekend as he takes over control of Fremont Street Experience using the largest video screen in the world to display his VJing.
From 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday, a free concert courtesy of Roonie will take place for an audio/visual event unlike anything we’ve seen before downtown -- 12.5 million lights will pulsate to the beats as images coordinated with Roonie’s live set soar 90 feet overhead along 1,500 feet of the Viva Vision screen.
As someone who helped develop the first DVD turntables alongside former Pioneer Pro DJ expert Karl Detken, you can bet Roonie’s knowledge and skills will make for one of the craziest experiences you’ve ever had on Fremont … at least the craziest one that doesn’t involve yard-long daiquiris, a trip to Glitter Gulch and a Gene Simmons impersonator.
Fremont Street Experience Legendary casinos, free entertainment, old-fashioned gambling hospitality – this is the vintage Vegas of the Fremont Street Experience. Some say it's almost intimate. You may even run into one of the casino owners while you sit at the blackjack table. Some say it's the free entertainment that makes us vintage. On any given night you may see famous bands, strolling showgirls, or an amazing saxophone performance. Some say it's the history. Las Vegas started 100 years ago in 1905 near the corner of Fremont and Main Streets. Fremont Street was the first paved street. The Fremont Hotel opened 50 years ago and launched the careers of famous entertainers like Wayne Newton. Others say it's the service. A dining experience at Hugo's Cellar inside the Four Queens is unrivaled and renowned. And we can't forget the gambling. Test your fortune at The Lady Luck or Fitzgeralds casinos on some of the loosest slots in town.
