Chuck Berry & Wanda Jackson at Viva Las Vegas 13 this weekend, plus other events for rockabilly fans

It’s time for Viva Las Vegas! It's like South by Southwest, but just rockabilly. Now in its 13th year, Viva has become THE place to be if you’re a fan of anything and everything rockabilly. This year’s rockabilly weekend features a classic car show, a burlesque competition, a fashion show, jiving classes, plenty of vendors, a tiki pool party, DJs galore, and of course many great rockabilly bands. Don’t miss Chuck Berry (at the Car Show on Saturday, 6 PM) and Wanda Jackson (at the Ballroom on Saturday, 11 pm)!

Most events take place at The Orleans Hotel (4500 W. Tropicana Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89103), but I’ve also listed some non-official shows going on this weekend as well.

Tickets are sold out for the “official” shows, but don’t let that stop you from heading out to Vegas for the weekend. There will still be plenty to see, and you can still buy tickets for Saturday’s Car Show where Chuck berry will play.

I'll be posting daily updates from the event, so check back often!
