AREA15, Las Vegas’ newest immersive art and entertainment district located just seven minutes from the Strip, recently started construction on “The Grounds.” AREA15 designed this multi-use, outdoor event space as a site for festivals, carnivals, conventions, concerts and other large-scale events. The Grounds spans more than four acres (190,000 square feet) and can accommodate up to 20,000 guests and is expected to be ready to host events this summer. Event inquiries are currently being accepted ahead of the projected summer opening.

Located on the wholly reimagined world comprising the AREA15 campus, The Grounds is the former site of Las Vegas’ Scandia Family Fun Center off Rancho Drive and Sirius Avenue. It sits alongside AREA15’s A-Lot, the 32,000-square-foot flexible outdoor event space, enabling the two spaces to be used together or separately. Providing added appeal, events at The Grounds feature impressive views of the Las Vegas skyline.

“Expanding the AREA15 campus has always been part of the overall plan for the project,” said Winston Fisher, chief executive officer, AREA15. “We look forward to hosting large-scale music concerts and festivals on The Grounds. The proximity of the land to AREA15, the Strip and Downtown Las Vegas will provide the concert-goer with an unapparelled experience.”
