Desert paradise: Paradiso attendees descend on Grant County

Print Article

GORGE AMPHITHEATRE — Tens of thousands of festival attendees in brightly colored clothing looking to shake it to some electronic dance music have poured into Grant County’s Gorge Amphitheatre for Paradiso 2019, a two-day extravaganza that draws EDM fans from around the country.

The annual event doesn’t just draw a lot of people, it draws a sizable sum of money for founders USC Events and Live Nation. Attendees spend anywhere between $180 to over $500 just for tickets, not including the myriad other services that, in the case of the VIP Kingdom Table, can cost as much as $9,000.

The campground can accommodate 25,000 people and tends to fill up, said Kyle Foreman, a public information officer for the Grant County Sheriff’s Office. Many more attendees won’t be camping overnight, meaning around 30,000 locals and out-of-towners will be packing into the Gorge Amphitheatre for the weekend.
