Las Vegas is known for its great weather and its amazing entertainment, so what could be better than combining the two?

Pool season has kicked off and the summer concert season will soon be in full swing too. Several hotels in Vegas have had the brilliant idea of putting the two together and letting you enjoy the best of both worlds.

Voodoo Beach at the Rio is presenting a free concert series one Thursday per month from May until September. Concert goers must be 18 and admission is based on capacity. Concerts include some old-school alternative acts like Spin Doctors (May 21), Toad the Wet Sprocket (July 30), Nine Days and Marcy Playground (Aug. 27) and The Presidents of the United States of America and The Ataris (Sept. 24).

Mandalay Beach at Mandalay Bay is an 11-acre pool paradise and if you attend a concert there, you can actually swim up to the stage or stand in the water to stay cool while you watch bands like Boyz II Men (Aug. 22) and The Beach Boys (May 23 – 24).

The Hard Rock pool¬†presents the Friday Night Live concert series every summer. Hang out at the hotel’s 4.7-acre pool area and catch live performances under the stars by Rusted Root (May 1), Ozomatli (May 22), Sugar Ray (May 29), Gin Blossoms and Tonic (June 26) and many more.
