Intergalactic Art Car Festival
June 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 2:00 amFree
Lyft is partnering with Fired Up Management to create the Intergalactic Art Car Festival on Saturday, June 9, with all proceeds benefiting local art programs through the First Friday Foundation. The out-of-this-world festival will convene the largest collection of art cars outside the playa created by some of the country’s most brilliant installation artists, including 30-foot alien creatures, praying mantises, rhinos, monsters, alligators, swans, and even a stapler. At 7 p.m., the cars will proceed from Llama Lot at Ogden and 9th Street, then run down the Las Vegas Strip to Harmon before turning to return to Llama Lot. An all-ages, art-filled immersive experience festival will follow from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. with fire dancers, live DJ performances, food trucks, and artist demos. Vehicles on display feature multiple fire shows, LED screens, and thumping sound systems, and can stretch to be more than 25 feet long and over 30 feet high.
