Fremont Street Experience, the six-block entertainment district located in historic downtown Las Vegas, is excited to announce the return of its blackout block party, Drinksgiving, with a highly anticipated free performance by multi-Grammy Award-winning reggae icon, Shaggy on Wednesday, November 22nd.
Born Orville Richard Burrell and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Shaggy got his start as an MC in New York City’s burgeoning dancehall scene soon after moving to Brooklyn in his teens. Not long after serving four years in the U.S. Marines (including two tours of duty in the Middle East as part of Operation Desert Storm), he inked his first record deal and quickly scored a global crossover smash with “Oh Carolina.” As the only diamond-selling dancehall artist in music history, Shaggy, managed by Martin Kierszenbaum/ Cherrytree Music Company, has sold more than 40 million album units to date, in addition to landing eight singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and seven albums on the Billboard 200 (including four in the top 40). He has received two Grammy Awards and is among the top three streamed reggae artists of all time on Spotify. His latest project is the soca-inspired EP, “In The Mood.”
Fremont Street Experience’s epic drink-fest and block party encompasses the entire destination during one of the most beloved party nights of the year. In addition to Shaggy’s free performance, the Great Onesie Bar Crawl will also return for its annual Fremont Street Experience takeover. Fans can head to Fremont Street in their most outlandish pajamas and onesies for the ridiculously comfortable bar crawl.
New to this year’s Drinksgiving festivities is the inclusion of Fremont Street Experience’s Electric Vinyl DJ series. Featuring a stacked lineup of nonstop pop and rock hits remixed with modern energetic beats, Electric Vinyl will take place on the 1st Street Stage, bringing the ultimate dance party atmosphere to Fremont Street Experience for music fans of all ages.
Electric Vinyl DJ Lineup:
- 6pm-8pm: DJ Sara P
- 8pm-10pm: DJ Eric Forbes
- 10pm-12am: DJ Stretch and DJ Shift
- 12pm-2am:DJ Alex Peace
People watching on Fremont Street will be on another level for the one-of-a-kind, drinking extravaganza. Anyone interested in joining the Great Onesie Bar Crawl can purchase tickets online.
