In July 2015, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada launched a nonprofit initiative in its continuing effort to support the local community, and on Friday, July 8, the second annual Music for a Mission kicked off during select performances at the Friday Night Live at the Pool concert series.

During each show, three cabanas at the Hard Rock Hotel are donated to nonprofit organizations that support Southern Nevada. The organizations are encouraged to either auction off the cabanas to raise money or to be given to volunteers, staff and donors as a token of appreciation. Along with the donated cabanas, all of the nonprofits will be provided with a credit that can be used for cocktails, bottle service and more, by the property.

The 2016 Music for a Mission Lineup includes performances by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, on Friday, Aug. 12, in support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada; Eagles of Death Metal, on Friday, July 22, supporting Opportunity Village; Mac DeMarco with Ducktails and Dinner, on Friday, Sept. 2, in support of Communities in Schools of Nevada; on Friday, Sept 9, Pepper with Katastro, for Three Square Food Bank, and performing on Friday, Sept. 16, The GROWLERS, who are supporting Dress for Success Southern Nevada, according to KTNV Las Vegas.

Tickets for the shows can be purchased either at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, or they can be charged by phone at 888-9-AXS-TIX. Cabana reservations can be made by calling 702-693-5555.
