Slow Roast Picnic DJ Showcase at Downtown Grand, June 22



Event Takes Place During Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival Week at PICNIC, Downtown Grand’s Urban Rooftop Pool Experience

The Downtown Grand Las Vegas and Slow Roast Records announce “Slow Roast Picnic,” a poolside DJ showcase to take place on Sunday, June 22, during Electric Daisy Carnival week in Las Vegas. PICNIC, the new urban rooftop pool experience at Downtown Grand, will host a uniquely relaxed, hassle-free day of music, drinks, good friends and great food in an atmosphere reminiscent of a laid-back house party rather than an overhyped, overpriced club scene.

In true Downtown Las Vegas fashion, no velvet ropes, dress codes or high-priced cover charges will be involved. The DJ lineup includes label boss and three-time DMC champion DJ Craze, trap music all-stars Loudpack, Mr. Carmack of legendary Team Supreme, Ape Drums, Sluggers, Codes and Louie Arson, with more to be announced. In addition, the event will feature multiple cameo appearances and surprise secret guest performances sure to delight EDM fans.

Tickets for this limited capacity event start at just $12 (plus taxes and fees), but will increase as the event draws near. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets early at www.slowroastpicnic.com.

Designed to put a modern twist on a classic leisure activity, PICNIC at Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is the city’s newest and only urban rooftop pool experience. Whimsical and nostalgic, PICNIC is reminiscent of a ‘50s pool oasis, which sets the scene for live entertainment and film screenings throughout the year.  Guests are invited to share a picnic basket and a blanket on the grass, have a meal at a communal picnic table, and take a dip in the Infinity pool, all while soaking up the incomparable vistas of Downtown3rd and Fremont Street Experience.

Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is the anchor and crown jewel of Downtown3rd, the new metropolitan center of Las Vegas. The 18-story Casino Tower and 25-story Grand Tower feature 634 guest rooms ranging in size from 350 to more than 1,200 square feet with high-definition flat-screen televisions, presidential pillow-top mattresses and high-thread-count linens, setting a new standard for luxury, sophistication and style in downtown Las Vegas. The exterior design of Downtown Grand blends multiple storefronts with a brick and granite façade creating a series of inviting indoor/outdoor experiences. The “industrial chic” interior features the raw energy of a factory juxtaposed with ornate fixtures and canopies. Downtown Grand offers 25,000 square feet of gaming space with nearly 600 new slot machines, 30 table games and a fully featured sports book powered by William Hill. Downtown Grand boasts a variety of unique bars and restaurants providing a wide variety of cuisines and price points. PICNIC, an urban rooftop pool experience, is Downtown Grand’s signature entertainment/dining venue encompassing more than 35,000 square feet and featuring an infinity pool, full restaurant and bar, private cabanas, a fire pit and a grass seating area. Downtown3rd is just steps away from the world-famous Fremont Street Experience and The Mob Museum, within walking distance of Fremont East Entertainment District, and less than one mile from the Las Vegas Premium Outlets and The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
