VAI Resort in Arizona Unveils Details of the VAI Amphitheater

VAI Resort has unveiled the latest addition to its upcoming $1 billion destination resort in Arizona—the VAI Amphitheater. Scheduled to open in 2024, this venue is designed with music and live entertainment at its core, with a $40 million stage and state-of-the-art technology.

Set against the backdrop of the 60-acre VAI Resort, with white sand beaches and over 1,100 guestrooms, this venue offers multiple viewing options, ensuring every guest has a view of the stage. From hotel room balconies and sky boxes to VIP booths, cabanas and high-end stadium seats, the VAI Amphitheater has a capacity of over 8,000 where most of the fans are less than 100 feet away from the stage.

With a planned year-round programming lineup of diverse artists and mini residencies, this venue offers flexibility, adaptability and expandability. From A-list touring acts to up-and-coming talent to comedy superstars, VAI Amphitheater will welcome all genres of entertainment and music from rock to pop to country and R&B.

Good to know: Every aspect of the artist’s journey has been designed to create a “Plug & Play” concept, eliminating the need for artists to bring their own equipment. It also offers exclusive backstage amenities, including a back-of-house elevator and underground tunnels connecting the Rockstar Suite directly to the performance green room, ensuring privacy and convenience for artists. 

VAI Amphitheater has partnered with companies such as TAIT and Solotech to create this entertainment hub. These collaborations ensure that both artists and fans will enjoy an unrivaled experience. The venue will use innovative technology, including a custom and permanently installed SFX system, cutting-edge lighting, and a comprehensive camera package, guaranteeing a visually stunning experience for all guests.

The VAI Amphitheater will feature integrated and custom technology package, including:

  • TAIT Navigator automation platform and control
  • 12x12 custom stage lift
  • Video server by Disguise
