After a successful inaugural run last September, Neon Reverb is back from March 12 - 15 for another round of alternative, indie, folk, ska, country, rock and punk shows in downtown Las Vegas.

The music festival has mushroomed for its second time around, now featuring around 100 local and national acts at a slew of venues including the Beauty Bar, The Bunkhouse, Thunderbird Lounge, The Freakin’ Frog, The Aruba Ballroom, Las Vegas Country Saloon and The Box Office. Headliners include freestyle gospel rockers Akron/Family, Seattle’s Say Hi, hip-hoppers Themselves and New York punks Japanther, who’ve been known to serenade synchronized swimming clubs.

Passes are available for single shows, single days or the entire festival and range from free to $60, making this home grown festival a lot more affordable that Coachella or Bonaroo.

New to this edition of the festival are early shows at locations like Freakin’ Frog and the Beaux Arts Gallery where you can catch a few acts from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. before heading out for additional shows scattered around downtown. There is also a special Poolside Reverb show on Sunday at Allure Tower where you can relax by the pool, enjoying the sounds of DJ Axis and recalling your fondest Neon Reverb memories.

Here is the complete Neon Reverb schedule. Plan you musically enhanced, downtown-centric weekend accordingly.
