"We're in the special event business," Superfly president Jonathan Mayers previously told Billboard.com. "Bonnaroo has been very successful, and we want to create another special event. We think Vegas and Halloween are a great combination, and Vegoose will be an exciting destination."
In addition, related shows will be held at various Las Vegas venues from Oct. 28-31, with lineups to be announced. Although these events will require separate tickets, Vegoose attendees will be given priority via a special presale.
