Festival in Photos: Bite of Las Vegas 2020
Las Vegas is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. As an event photographer in the city that received over 40 million visitors per year, we have experienced some jaw dropping moments.
Things are finally starting to get back to normal in Las Vegas. With Covid-19 vaccines readily available, entertainment venues feel comfortable hosting events again. This means that concerts and festivals are back.
The Bite of Las Vegas festival is one of the most anticipated events each year. We are anxiously awaiting the announcement for the 2022 performer line up. We have had the pleasure of being the sponsor’s event and food photographer for the last seven years. Read on to learn all about the musical talent, food vendors and family friendly activities we see each year during this food and music festival.
To say “Bite of Las Vegas is a food festival” would be a massive understatement. You’ll see in the
In between Billboard hits, you can meandor the outdoor venue to find a smorgasbord of legendary food. There are more than 40 food vendors on-site for the Bite of Las Vegas festival. Some of the vendors are well-known in the area while others are hidden gems.
Start off with a freshly squeezed lemonade slushy from The Twisted Lemon slushie accompanied by locally owned and operated delights by CRAFTKitchen. With so many vendors, you are certain to enjoy a wide variety of culinary options.
You can even cheer on your favorite food vendor during the menu contest. Culinary judges taste test and rank the best bites of the festival. And of course, as the main source for event photography, our favorite part is a great food photo.
The Festival’s host, Mix 94.1, rings in some of the best musical talents for locals and Las Vegas visitors. As the event’s official concert photographers, we have been close and personal with megastars like Andy Grammar, Matt Nathanson, Need To Breathe, Third Eye Blind & Life House (BITE 2015), Better than Ezra, Daughtry, Olivia Holt, Blue October & Fitz and the Tantrums (BITE 2016), Eve 6, LeAnn Rimes, Lights, Neon Trees, Rachel Patten, Shawn Hook & Vertical Horizon (BITE 2017), Echosmith, Hoobastank & Jewel (BITE 2018), and most recently, SHAED, Shinedown, Rob Thomas & Carlos Santana (BITE 2019).
For the first time, 2019 brought the festival to the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center (or DLVEC).
Concerts are performed throughout the day starting with new and upcoming talent starting early in the day. This event is a perfect blend of family friendly activies and adult centered fun for boozy, foodie, music loving visitors.
If good music and delicious food are not enough for you, there is still more to do. Each year and each venue provides extra entertainment. There are even carnival games and rides available for festival guests. Tickets are sold to people of all ages so there is something to do for everyone.
While bands are playing their megahits, VIP guests can party in the pool. There are large projector screens all around the full-size pool so that you can still take in the musicians.
The last festival was held in the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center (DLVEC). Surrounding the festival are casinos and everything else Las Vegas has to offer. You find yourself smack dab in the middle of the most enjoyable city on Earth.
As the event’s official photographer, we were on hand for every great moment. Whether it was the surprise reunion of Rob Thomas and Carlos Santana or the debut of a top food vendor, we were there to capture the moment.
