Whether you are a music lover or a sports fan there is an event listed below for just about everyone to set their own personal countdown clock to.

Here's a look at the top events hitting Las Vegas in the coming months you won't want to miss.

1. Lovers & Friends 2-day Music Festival

Lovers & Friends gets underway on Friday, May 14, and Saturday, May 15 at the Las Vegas Festival grounds.

The announcement in 2021 caused quite the stir on social media when the music festival initially announced its line-up of 90's performers set to take to the stage.

The listing drew so much attention that festival organizers decided to add a second night of music.

The highly anticipated line-up will include Lauryn Hill, Usher, Nelly, Timbland, and Nelly just to name a few performers.

Many of the tickets appear to be sold out on the festival's website, however, a waitlist has been posted.
