and the Heart of the King Awards & Concert

July 11-14, 2019




Once again the festival will bring you more world class entertainment than any other weekend festival!  We are thrilled to announce our seven events for 2019 which include the return of the Heart of the King Awards & Concert formerly held at the Las Vegas Hilton.

As always, the weekend will kick off with a welcome reception in Roxy’s lounge and will have after hours parties each night.  Our events for this year include “Shake Rattle and Roll,” “30 #1 Hits,” “At the Hop,” “Vegas: 50 Years On,” our “Grand Finale Concert,” a very special “VIP Event” with Linda Thompson, and the “Heart of the King Awards and Concert.”  Check the schedule for full details.

We are very excited to announce the last minute addition of Cody Ray Slaughter.  Cody’s schedule freed up and he’s agreed to come out and perform for all of his Las Vegas fans!

We are also very excited to announce that this year’s Sunday VIP event will feature Linda Thompson sharing details of her 41/2 years living at Graceland with the King!

As part of this year’s Heart of the King Awards we will be presenting an Honorary Heart of the King Award to “Partie Artie” Dadyan.  For many members of our Elvis family, and especially those who come to the Las Vegas event, Partie Artie was a fixture and in many ways the heart of our festival.  His passing this year following Elvis Week was a shock.  Join us to honor Artie and celebrate with his wife Janet on Friday night.

The entire weekend of entertainment will take place at Sam’s Town Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.  The hotel has a variety of nice, clean hotel rooms, plenty of restaurants to choose from, a great casino and a unique indoor atrium you’ve got to see.  The Sam’s Town Live venue will play host to the festival and we’ll congregate in Roxy’s Lounge before and after the events for more great entertainment.

We look forward to seeing both old and new friends in Las Vegas!
