MATINÉE is coming to the West Coast for the first time ever for The Matinee Las Vegas Festival at the Siegel Group’s Rumor Boutique Hotel over 4th of July weekend. Rumor, Las Vegas’ premier boutique-chic, all-suite property, will play host to the international extravaganza, which will also feature five dance events set to be held at Vegas’ top nightclubs and pools. Be prepared to be blown away since the Matinee Las Vegas Festival will feature the best international DJs and performers, as well as specialty acts and production direct from Spain. “Rumor has a unique and distinctive style, just like Matinee,” explains Jake Resnicow, partner of MATINEE NYC. “Rumor is sleek, and above all, sexy, from the over-the-top themes in the mega-suites to the fun and fancy atmosphere in the pool, we had no doubt that Rumor was the only place where we could hold MATINEE. It has the sophistication and style which matches perfectly with our audience.”
Matinee attracts a gorgeous, upbeat crowd, everyone from muscle boys to glittered up drag queens and from dedicated clubbers to socializing metrosexuals, giving Matinee an unrestrained party vibe that attracts the most glamorous mixed crowd in Vegas.
Anyone who has ever been to (or seen the video footage of) Matinee Group’s gargantuan theatrical parties in Spain (Circuit Festival Barcelona and Matinee @Amnesia Ibiza) knows that they can expect nothing short of an extraordinary experience. Since their U.S. debut during New York City’s Pride at Governors Island, MATINEE has quickly become the hottest, most talked-about party in the country. More than 25,000 have turned out for sold-out events at NYC Pride, LaLeche!, the Main Event at Winter Party Festival in Miami, and MATINEE@Universal Studios Florida Gay Days.
So what are they going to do to make sure the Las Vegas event meets expectations? “Las Vegas is an international destination and MATINEE is an international event,” notes Resnicow. “By bringing the two together along with some of the biggest party promoters and partners from around the globe during the best holiday weekends, we are going to outdo ourselves. We expect to have a crowd that surpasses any we’ve hosted yet, and Rumor is ideal for a weekend festival like ours. The pool and courtyard offer a great space for our daytime pool parties, while the sleek rooms provide the perfect space to gather up friends.”
“We are very excited to welcome an international event of this size and scope to our hotel,” says Michael Crandall, director of business affairs for the Siegel Group. “When we designed the hotel, we knew it would be the perfect location for a multi-day, music-inspired festival and we look forward to welcoming MATINEE’s global audience.”
Presented by Jake Resnicow, Tommy Marinelli, Patrick Crough, Matinee NYC, and Eduardo Cordova from Eduardo Cordova Presents, MATINEE is sure to make the Rumor a Vegas hotspot this 4th of July weekend.
Special rates at the 150-room property are being offered to the event: Rumor Suites start at just $129.
