Last week, Noisey is excited to be partnering with Emerge Music + Impact Conference, happening in Las Vegas November 16-18. It's a new kind of festival, one that features talks from established artists like Kaskade and Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance, and highlights emerging acts with performances from the likes of LA Witch, Cuco, and Billie Eilish, among others. Today, we're pleased to announce the addition of more than 70 artists and curators, including Spoon's Britt Daniel, Henry Rollins, and Las Vegas's own, The Killers.

"I'm really pleased to be able to help curate the new Emerge Impact + Music Conference," Daniel said. "The team putting this on wholeheartedly believes in the mission of this new conference: the discovery of new, emerging artists. I'm psyched to be able to help out with that mission."

The three-day event will combine up-and-coming artists with bigger names on the same stages, organized by theme. The Killers and Daniel will be joining Grammy Award-winning record producer Rob Cavallo, Billboard Magazine 40 Under 40 recipient Kirk Sommer, Paradigm talent agent Tom Windish, and iconic MTV video deejay Matt Pinfield as curators for Emerge. The conference is also adding the addition of more than 50 emerging artists including AJ Mitchell, Cade, Kemba, Larry June, Open Mike Eagle, White Reaper, and others.
