Emerge is structured differently from most music or ideas festivals. The heart of the event are three four-hour showcases that weave words, music, movement, and visuals into a unified, experience all festival goers can share without missing other elements of Emerge.

The main showcases center on loose but evocative themes. A short and sweet overview of the festival’s schedule gives a glimpse of Emerge’s unique approach.
Emerge, the festival where social impact and music intersect, is announcing several headliners for its unique showcases May 31 and June 1st at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.

“Emerge highlights how music and social action inform and support each other,” says festival founder Rehan Choudhry. “Our headline artists and speakers show how powerful it can be when well-established and popular figures commit to making a statement, and the inspiration that can provide for audiences and for movements. They all share a passion for social movements and have cultivated a very personal point of view on what’s happening today. Their music is a vehicle to express this perspective.”

Emerge’s outspoken headliners include:

Brandon Flowers set will include a compelling performance of the anthemic, passionately critical “The Land of the Free,” complete with full choir. He’ll be joining the Protest showcase as we explore modern-day protest movements. Flowers will be joined by Talib Kweli, Ana Tijoux, Nahko, and Tank and the Bangas, as well as speakers from March for our Lives like David Hogg, and Emma Gonzalez.

Whitney Bell, a fearless voice from the feminist activist movement who dedicates much of her work to lifting up women’s stories. Bell will act as curator for the Saturday afternoon showcase featuring an all-female lineup of speakers and performers.

Along with these names, the festival is also announcing Luna Aura, whose frank exploration of women’s sexuality is coupled with a keen instinct for hooky songwriting, and The Dose, the grunge-inflected power duo.

In the history of modern progressive and protest movements, the message has been in the music, inspiring the music, while the music shapes the message. “Protests and movements are filled with the same intensity and energy that music festivals once had, that power to galvanize people and encourage them to change their lives and communities,” Choudhry notes. “Our speakers and performers share stages, in a deliberate push to give this combined energy room to grow.”
