Incredible Music Venues for a Hytened Experience
Each genre can be found in Vegas, along with the perfect ambiance & crowd.
Music is far more delicious to listen to after smoking a calming but mentally stimulating sativa. One that lifts the spirits so dancing comes easier while expanding the mind into a deeper, more astute state of consciousness. Lyrics are better understood, the beat can be hypnotizing, and relating the music becomes an adventure in discovering one’s own self.
They say music is the language of the soul – so that must mean Vegas is your ultimate polyglot. Here are the venues you shouldn’t miss out on based on your preference of music. And don’t forget to take a few tokes of your favorite greenery before seeing your favorite music artists.
Classical, Opera, Plays, Musicals: The Smith Center
This world-class performing arts center is perfect for an elegant evening of entertainment. Its architecture was designed with the venues of concert halls from all across America kept in mind, along with the world’s finest opera houses. It can be compared to the Musikverein in Vienna or the Palais Garnier in Paris. Performances such as The Phantom of the Opera, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, multiple Broadway shows and even Disney productions have all had their share of time in the Smith Center.

The colorful lights and booming sound system will make you want to head bang and unleash your inner animal as you rock out with your toke out (we don’t actually recommend smoking in any of these venues only because of legalities). From Journey, Warp Tour, Third Eye Blind, and Apocalyptica… you’ll find various rock groups from all sub-genres here at The Joint.
Pop: Planet Hollywood’s Axis Theater
Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Backstreet Boys... Yes, these badass pop stars perform at Planet Hollywood’s Axis Theater which is colored a lovely shade of indigo that’ll sooth your soul. The stage is well equipped for fantastical light shows that seemingly blend the crowd into the stage, and this venue’s smaller-than-normal seating area (for a Vegas show, that is) is the perfectly intimate place to enjoy a few drinks, a few puffs, and to sing along to your favorite pop artists’ hits.
These venues are just the tip of the ice burg when it comes to Las Vegas music performances. Nearly every casino found on the strip has their own theater/arena/showroom – so check out as many listings as you can during your time of stay in order to fully enjoy the experience of Vegas entertainment.
