August offers a great opportunity for late-summer deals in Las Vegas

Average temperature low and high: 73° - 104°

As summer winds down in Las Vegas, August is still a great time to be on the Strip. If you can stand the heat, there are lots of fun things to do, from shows and concerts to restaurants and bars. You may even score a great deal. As always, turn to Lavish Vegas for the best hotel rates and visit Experism.com to plan a vacation in other cities around the United States.

Things to do in August in Las Vegas

See a big show at Allegiant Stadium

Allegiant Stadium is known as the home of the Las Vegas Raiders, but the 65,000-seat venue is welcoming a few big shows before the NFL season gets underway. The Red Hot Chili Peppers take the stage on August 6 with The Strokes as special guests. Mexican Grupera legends Los Bukis bring their reunion tour to Allegiant Stadium on August 26. If you prefer to dance all night long, The Weeknd performs on August 20 with Doja Cat opening. 

Rock out to The Killers’ Las Vegas homecoming 

If you’re not at Allegiant Stadium, the biggest concert of the month is The Killers at T-Mobile Arena. The multi-platinum band is from Las Vegas, so expect a homecoming atmosphere on August 26. The T-Mobile Arena also welcomes Daddy Yankee (Aug. 6 & 20) and the double-bill of Chris Brown & Lil Baby (August 27) this month.

Other big August concerts include residencies by John Legend (Aug. 5-20) and Shania Twain (Aug. 26-31) at Planet Hollywood, Silk Sonic (Aug. 3-19) and Usher (Aug. 26-31) at Park MGM, Katy Perry (Aug. 3-13) and Luke Bryan (August 31) at Resorts World and Lionel Richie (Aug. 5-20) at Wynn. Heavy metal fans will be excited to see Rob Zombie and Mudvayne at the Michelob Ultra Arena (August 13) and the Psycho Las Vegas festival, which takes over Resorts World (Aug. 19-21).

See a Comedian in Las Vegas

It’s an excellent month for laughs. Jim Gaffigan brings “The Fun Tour” to the Wynn Aug. 26-27, while Katheleen Madigan (August 5), Chico Bean (August 6), Jim Jefferies (Aug. 12-13) and Ron White (Aug. 19-20) join the Aces of Comedy Series at the Mirage.

Vegas is full of great comedy clubs and Lavish Vegas is your best source for tickets.

Go for a swim in Las Vegas

As summer continues to heat up, you’ll want to check out the best day clubs and pool parties in Las Vegas. Some of our favorites like Wet Republic, Liquid, Encore Beach Club, Ayu, Elia, and Marquee return for another year of DJs, cabanas and bottle service. The biggest news: Tao Beach is back open after a two-year hiatus with an all-new renovation. Wear plenty of sunscreen. The Vegas heat is brutal in August.

Stay up to date with the latest information on resort pools in Las Vegas.

Attend Def Con 30

Def Con has long been a tradition in Las Vegas and this year, the trade show for computer hackers (and those trying to counteract them) runs August 11-14 in Las Vegas. The conference is at the Caesars Forum for the first time, with additional events at The LINQ, Flamingo and Harrah’s

Fremont Street Experience: Step away from the pool or AC for a few hours with an evening adventure in the not-so-old Downtown. The Fremont Street Experience has a Viva Vision light show, free concerts and the Slotzilla zip line.

Fire off Some Firearms: Las Vegas is known for its gun ranges and if the August heat has you frustrated, blow off some steam during target practice. Battlefield Vegas has indoor and outdoor experiences, ranging from entry-level gun classes for beginners to crushing a car with a tank. The choice is yours.

Free Drinks in Las Vegas: Las Vegas is not the cheapest place to grab a drink. Fortunately, we list semi-secret promotions and weekly open bars. These events are often added with little notice. Review the special offers on our nightclub page when you log in with Facebook.
