Things to do in May in Las Vegas

Electric Daisy Carnival

Dance All Night at EDC

May is s huge month for music in Las Vegas, and Electric Daisy Carnival is back again, reclaiming its usual spot as a major spring event on May 19-21. The country's biggest electronic dance music festival welcomes about 140,000 people each night over a three-day weekend at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The Electric Daisy Carnival operates from dusk to dawn. There are eight stages with DJs performing throughout the evening. The KineticFIELD serves as the main stage, taking up about half of the Speedway and hosting the biggest EDM stars. Roam the festival grounds, and you'll see carnival rides, parades, and a neon-colored spectacle that will make you feel like you're on a different planet.

Enjoy More Music at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds

After being cancelled last year, the Lovers and Friends Festival returns to the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, promising to be bigger and better than ever on May 6. The event has a deep lineup of rap, soul and R&B acts with a retro flavor. Headliners include Missy Elliott, Usher, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, 50 Cent, Nelly, Pitbull and more. The festival is sold out, but you may still have luck on here.

A week later, on May 13, a new all-day rock and metal festival known as Sick New World comes to the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. Headliners include System of a Down, Korn, Deftones, and Incubus. Tickets are sold out, but there's an official waitlist.

See a Concert Residency in Las Vegas

Garth Brooks returns to Vegas with a new "Plus/One" residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Shows begin May 18 and will change in structure and setlist from night to night. Prior to that, the Colosseum welcomes long-running resident headliner Rod Stewart May 3-15. The Chicks (formerly known as the Dixie Chicks) kick off a six-night run at Planet Hollywood's Zappos Theater on May 3. The B-52's launch a residency on May 5 at the Venetian Theatre with five shows this month.

Cycle your Way Through Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas

L'Étape by Tour de France is an amateur cycling event on May 7 that begins at the Las Vegas Ballpark in Downtown Summerlin. Compete in a 75-mile, 50-mile or 25-mile route that passes through the gorgeous scenery of Red Rock Canyon and unwind afterwards at the Athletes Village and Expo.

Go Bowling with Punk Rockers

Punk Rock Bowling returns to Las Vegas May 26-29. The festival includes concerts at the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center (featuring headliners Rancid, Bad Religion and Dropkick Murphys) as well as club shows and pool parties throughout Downtown. Sign up for competitive bowling sessions at Sam's Club and Gold Coast casinos.

Take a Dive into a Pool Party in Las Vegas

Pool parties are back in Las Vegas, operating at full capacity. The best way to enjoy DJs, drinks, and other fun by the water is with a cabana or daybed, which typically requires a minimum spend on food and beverages. Don't be surprised to see some attractive discounts offered. Request a cabana or daybed through Lavish Vegas to learn about comps and special deals.

See a Comedy Show in Las Vegas

The biggest shows of the month take place May 5-6, when Bill Burr performs at Dolby Live inside the Park MGM. Otherwise, Jim Gaffigan brings his Fun Tour to the Wynn's Encore Theater May 19-20. The same venue hosts Sebastian Maniscalco May 27-28. The Mirage welcomes Daniel Tosh May 5 and spooky comedy podcast And That's Why We Drink May 19.

Laugh at other comedy clubs and shows in Las Vegas.

Celebrate the May Holidays in Las Vegas

Memorial Day traditionally marks the start of summer and is one of the year's biggest weekends in Las Vegas. Enjoy fun in the sun and everything else Las Vegas has to offer throughout Memorial Day Weekend, which runs May 26-29. Remain up to date with club schedules & ticket prices.

If the Strip is too crowded, you may prefer the beaches, boating, and jet skis of Lake Mead and Lake Las Vegas, each just minutes outside the metropolitan area. Lake Havasu in Arizona and Lake Powell, which borders Arizona and Utah, is worth a road trip.

Enjoy deals and discounts on Mexican food and Margaritas at top bars and restaurants for Cinco de Mayo (May 5).
