SUBSTANCE is a Versatile, 18,000 Square Foot Entertainment Venue situated in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas; Initial Calendar of Performers will Include Artists such as Walker & Royce, CRANKDAT, Boombox Cartel, KSHMR, and more!

LAS VEGAS, NV (June 5, 2024) – Today, Marcel Correa and Joe Borusiewicz, best known as partners in the Las Vegas-based event production company RVLTN Events (Ravealation) expand their local legacy with the official announcement of the city’s newest live music venue,  Substance. Opening on Friday, July 12 on the second floor of the Neonopolis Complex in the heart of downtown’s vibrant Fremont District, SUBSTANCE will be a one-story, 18,000 square-foot sanctum for all flavors of live entertainment. 

Correa and Borusiewicz’s tenacious passion for music has helped to cement RVLTN as one of the most abundant independent electronic promoters in the country, producing a myriad of club nights, concerts and outdoor festivals each year. SUBSTANCE is their latest venture, joining an impressive portfolio which includes ALTURA Presents, Elation, and Jackpot to name a few. At Substance, the RVLTN team will be collaborating with pioneering electronic music promoter, Insomniac, to bring some of the world’s most sought-after dance music artists to the stage every Friday night. Alongside electronic programming, Altura Presents will transform the space with its massively popular Latin events every Saturday night. The venue will also host an array of other genres and promoters, including Mexican regional, Rock, R&B, reggae + more. 

Just steps away from The Strip, adjacent to Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street, the new year-round venue will quickly become a homebase for fans looking to enjoy their favorite artists.

Partners Marcel Correa and Joe Borusiewicz shared their thoughts: 

“Growing up in Las Vegas, we've always loved our great city and its incredible potential to become a thriving local music scene. We've attended countless shows, festivals, & events here and our passion has always been about serving our fellow locals. As promoters, working with various venues throughout the city has given us deep insight into what works and what doesn’t — from guest experience and operations to overall strategy. No one enjoys paying $30 for parking or navigating a casino just to attend an event. People dislike strict dress codes, long lines for drinks and bathrooms, poor sound quality, and gouging fees. At SUBSTANCE, our goal is to create an entertainment destination that addresses these issues, incorporating everything we'd want as event producers and local music fans. We can’t wait to unveil our most exciting venture to date.”

The space’s brutalist architecture and low ceilings will make guests feel like they’re in a dystopian post-apocalyptic warehouse, with top of the line production amplifying live entertainment across a multitude of genres. The facility is equipped with a cutting-edge audio/visual system that can accommodate a wide range of live entertainment, from intimate DJ sets to live bands and major productions. On the operations side, SUBSTANCE will be helmed by industry veteran and Director Thom Svast. The venue will boast one of the largest indoor LED installations in the area, designed and installed by KRAY AV and Tradewind Productions.

On Friday, July 12, SUBSTANCE will officially open its doors, beginning with one of house music’s most dynamic duos, Walker & Royce, for an evening of emotive, groove-heavy sound. On night two, Altura Presents will debut SUBSTANCE’s first Latin Evening with a special guest lineup soon to be announced. The momentous grand opening will be followed by a summer of worldwide talent including Boombox Cartel on July 19th, bass music sensation CRANKDAT on July 26th, and many more to come. 

Tickets for Substance’s Grand Opening Weekend with Walker & Royce are available on June 7th at 10am PT via
