Las Vegas makes no secret of its love of a good time. Festivals are no exception!

Plan your trip around the festivals that suit you most, and let us know how they go.

1. Electric Daisy Carnival

Behold, the largest electronic music and dance festival in North America. Globally renowned for its scope of events and productions, commitment to cutting-edge stage production and creative incorporation of carnival themes, this sets standards in the entertainment industry.

Since the beginning in 1997 as a warehouse party in Los Angeles, it has since grown into an acclaimed live music experience, attracting nearly one million fans annually. This May in Las Vegas Boulevard, be one of them!

2. iHeart Radio

Gracing Las Vegas every September since 2011, iHeartRadio Music Festival has quickly become a staple of the festival scene. Boasting a vast array of world class music acts, like Miley Cyrus and Drake, and featuring both indoor and outdoor arenas, there’s something for everyone in this weekend-long party for music-lovers.

3. Las Rageous

Perhaps for the bolder amongst us, Sin City’s best rock and metal festival takes place every April in downtown Las Vegas. Only selling 10,000 tickets for an intimate indoor venue, and promising fearsome mosh pits, this one is not for the fainthearted.

4. Life is Beautiful

Every September for a three-day weekend, this festival makes downtown Las Vegas beautiful. Offering delight in Art, Music, Food and Learning, it has something for everyone. Street Art frames the whole experience, with installations, multi-sensory shows and of course, the impressive line-up of music makes this a weekend you won’t soon forget.

5. Reggae Rise Up Festival

Started in Utah and also featuring a weekend in Florida, Reggae Rise Up is coming to Vegas. Known for its vast array of acts, fantastic vibes and all-round quality of music, this promises a good time. Get away from the hustle and bustle, and relax into a world of rhythm and song.

6. Vegas Beer and Music Festival

The team at Rock Star Beers are pretty expert at producing high energy craft beer and music festivals: they’ve been doing it since 2011. Hosting events all over the country, their Vegas edition is the perfect celebration of both craft beer and live music. They focus on the whole experience, rather than each individually, so this March or October (Halloween special) head down to Downtown Las Vegas and try it out. Bring a friend!

It’s Ski Season! Four Resorts to Invest In Now

The swish of skis, the powder on the slopes and the crisp mountain air… With Covid restrictions easing, many holidaymakers’ thoughts are turning to travel - and with the winter sports season in full flow, what better time to look at the resorts that offer the most bang for your investment bucks? Read on for Propeterra’s rundown of our favourite ski destinations - including some you’d never have expected!

Niseko, Japan

Japan might not seem like an obvious skiing destination, but the snow at Niseko is hard to beat.

Niseko is also renowned for its beautiful scenery and luxury accommodations - and with New Chitose International Airport a short two hour drive away, as well as the Hokkaido Shinkansen connection coming in 2030, it’s never been easier to travel there.

Prime investment opportunities available now include the Pavilions Resort Villas and the Ginto Residences - and for more information on the area, Propeterra’s Niseko Report is available for download now.

Affordable Housing - the ADB and Lessons from the UK

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) recently released a briefing paper attempting to
learn lessons from the UK as to successes and failures of affordable housing policy. It is
justifiable to critique the UK’s faltering policy of delivery over a number of decades, but
this is precisely why it is a fruitful area of enquiry from analysts considering other parts
of the world. The UK has benefitted from significant resources, and policymakers have
been under considerable pressure from the electorate to ensure adequate housing across tenures. This is why the Chief of the Urban Sector Group at the ADB, Manoj Sharma, saw fit to commission this work, and report on its conclusions.
