Event Details

What To Expect

October 6th and 7th on Jean Dry Lake Bed - 25 miles south of Las Vegas

A naturally inspiring setting with live entertainment, gourmet food, and immersive art & spaces; culminating in the world's largest sky lantern release.

RiSE offers a space for reflection and introspection.  You can inscribe whatever you choose on your lanterns - each guest will receive two. Many utilize their lanterns to let go and set new intentions for the future while lifted by the beauty of the moment. 

Please be aware that the entrance gates to the venue will close at 7:00 pm to guarantee an optimal experience for all guests.


Our signature main stage, designed like a compass, serves as the central gathering point at RiSE. The compass invites you to look inward, articulate your heart's desires, and chart your personal path.

Here, you'll enjoy gourmet food, premium drinks, and musical artists performing throughout the day. As the sun sets, we transition into the Fire and Lantern Ritual. Amidst thousands of attendees and flickering torches, you will pen heartfelt words. Then, everyone will light their lanterns and watch them RiSE together.

Space Apart

Fusing light, nature, and art within an expansive desert landscape, Space Apart is a new venue located east of Compass. Showcasing the new Mojave stage, Bedouin tents, premium beverages, and immersive art, it presents a unique ambiance for reflection and flow.

Immerse yourself in sound baths, artistic exhibitions, and music prior to sunset. After releasing your lanterns, return to Space Apart to marvel at the fireworks and dance beneath the starry sky.

Food and Drink

Located at the northern and southern ends of the compass, our villages offer an extensive selection of premium food trucks, full bars, and refreshing beverages. With shaded seating available, you can comfortably relax and savor your meals and drinks.
