Las Vegas, NV December 6th & 7th — A brand new music, art, + tech festival has emerged! 🤩 Hitting the strip for the first time in 2019, Intersect by AWS was a weekend full of new and exciting experiences that left me wishing for more! 🙌🏾
Intersect 2019 took place at the newly built Las Vegas Festival Grounds (right next to Circus Circus if you’re familiar with Vegas). This wasn’t my first time at the festival grounds, but it was the first time I was impressed with the layout! They did a great job with placing the 3 megastructures, not too close/not too far from each other, with tons of things to see, touch, feel, and do while walking from structure to structure. One of my favorite spots to chill was the vitaminwater Fire and Ice Lounge! 🔥❄️ They had fire pits with seating set up around the bar, so it was the perfect spot to rehydrate and keep warm since temperatures were around 50 degrees all weekend! 🥶
Both days were filled with music from 3 PM to 12:30 AM, with artists Kacey Musgraves, Anderson .Paak, Gesaffelstein, H.E.R., Kaytranada, Leon Bridges & tons more! 🎶 In between the music is the perfect time to check out the art! When it comes to festivals, art installations are one my biggest drawing points! They’re not only fun to look at, they also make great backdrops for photos. 😉 I’m a lover of the arts and creativeness as a whole, so I tend to judge festivals pretty harshly on their choices when it comes to art installations. That being said, Intersect made sure to come through with some dope emerging artists from all around the world to present some of the coolest & most interactive installations I’ve ever seen at a festival! From being immersed into Nonotak’s and the Lost & Photon installation rooms (full of lights, lasers, and music), to gazing up at the Monolith, a gigantic 60-foot tall video tower in the center of the festival playing beautiful vivid computer animated visuals — I never had a chance to get bored.
See you in 2020, Vegas!
