Reno rocks n’ rolls with Hot August Nights. Hundreds of thousands of people descend on northern Nevada to pay homage to the region’s annual tribute to America’s love affair with cars and Rock n’ Roll.
Hot August Nights has become the nostalgic event to attend on the West coast where you literally watch the hands of time turn back to all the excitement of the 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s. It’s little wonder hundreds of thousands enjoy revisiting the great era… more than 6,000 cars are part of this star-studded event.
The great entertainers that have graced the Hot August Nights stage over the past years include the likes of Herman’s Hermits, The Beach Boys, The Righteous Brothers, Jan and Dean, Earth Wind and Fire, Danny and the Juniors, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, The Turtles, The Four Tops, Mary Wilson of the Supremes, Bill Haley and The Comets, Rare Earth, The Drifters, The Coasters, Little Richard, The Temptations, Tony Orlando, and The Village People to name but a few… and all of the entertainment is free.
