Elation, a subdivision of Las Vegas-based RVLTN Events specializing in hardstyle & techno, gears up for their first-annual Extinction event – featuring hardstyle legends Brennan Heart and DJ Isaac, Darksiderz, GEO and Talon.
Located at The Portal, AREA15’s 360-degree projection-mapped venue, on Saturday, November 5, the event will be 18+ with additional amenities available for those 21 and over.
Having just announced the launch of their Extinction brand in September of this year, tickets for the event went on sale on September 5 with an admission price of $35 plus fees.
Although Vegas is an international party destination, the options are slim when it comes to hardstyle. In addition to throwing events off of the strip, Elation has made its mark on Honolulu and plans to expand even further within the near future, in addition to its weekly Thursday events at Terminal 51.
The hard dance community in Las Vegas is most definitely an evolving one – Elation previously hosted Sundown Hardstyle with Lil Texas and Pulsatorz at the tail-end of 2019. Still, the diversity of events in this genre is slim.
Extinction is seemingly the blueprint for hardstyle events in the region, uniting fans of the genre and setting the standard for other event collectives to follow suit. Additionally, the event is a chance for Elation to level up into the European market with the caliber of artists on the Extinction roster.
As a representative of the Dutch dance industry, Brennan Heart is one of the leading brands in international hardstyle, having been featured in DJ Mag’s Top 100 and releasing “Evolution of Style: A Journey With Brennan Heart,” a 50-minute introspective documentary that is the first of its kind within the hardstyle sphere.
Extinction comes immediately after Heart’s anticipated involvement with Amsterdam Dance Event, celebrating 21 years in the business.
Following Extinction, Elation has quite a few additional events up their sleeve – the North American leg of Cristoph and Spencer Brown’s tour at Discopussy the following weekend, and Craig Connelly and Sean Tyas in Honolulu on December 2.
Dutch hardstyle duo Gunz For Hire is next on the calendar – performing inside AREA15’s Portal on February 10.
