Introducing Intersect Music Festival
Amazon Web Services (AWS) introduces Intersect, a music festival celebrating creativity, innovation, and community taking place December 6-7, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV. Headlining artists like Foo Fighters, Kacey Musgraves, Beck, and Anderson .Paak & the Free Nationals will be joined by Brandi Carlile, Leon Bridges, H.E.R., and more.
Beyond the music, Intersect attendees can explore a million square feet of games and activities, including a video arcade, post-apocalyptic dodgeball stadium, and mega-sized ball pit with over 200,000 balls. Food and cocktails will be provided by some of the premier caterers in the festival industry, including Wolfgang Puck, Best Beverage Catering, and Backyard BBQ. The entire event is taking place in a futuristic, custom-designed indoor/outdoor environment full of lasers, video screens, and immersive art and design.
Next-generation visual artists from around the world, including Nonotak, Kytten Janae, Beeple, Ouchhh, and Mike808, will share work throughout the festival environment, including a six-story-tall video tower called the ‘Monolith.’ And in a first of its kind performance, “Intel Presents UPLIFT: A drone light show celebrating women in tech in collaboration with Kacey Musgraves,” the show will accompany a donation to the nonprofit educational initiative Girls in Tech.
While Intersect may be new to the festival circuit, the origin stems from AWS’s annual developer conference, re:Invent. The conference’s official afterparty, called re:PLAY, is unlike any other conference afterparty. Massive megastructures, world-famous performing artists, and a monster-sized ball pit are just a few things that have made re:PLAY tech’s biggest party. Intersect will seek to emulate the same spirit of re:PLAY, to be utterly unique, peculiar, quirky, and cutting-edge.
Join us this December and see what all the excitement is about.
