Social Justice Melded with Music

Rehan Choudhry joined our podcast to discuss the upcoming second year of Emerge LV -- and to share his journey on how he re-melds social justice and music in this Facebook-embedded era. He walked us down his path through college, Homeland Security, Atlantic City, the Cosmopolitan, and Life is Beautiful. He then shared the challenges and importance of reconnecting social justice and heartfelt artists in this politically laden and fractured time.

Guest: Rehan Choudhry, Founder & CEO, A Beautiful Perspective; Founder, Emerge LV

After working for years in emergency management IT at the Department of Homeland Security, Rehan ran entertainment initiatives for an Atlantic City casino hungry to bring younger crowds to the city. After working with the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Rehan took the plunge into the festival world and became the founder and driving force behind Life is Beautiful. Rehan realized that the emotional tie, that sense of personal relevance, was missing at many events. This epiphany brought him to create Emerge LV, a thoughtfully curated annual event for emerging thoughts and voices in music and social impact spaces. This year’s festival revolves around four themes--Self, Protest, Fear, Sex--meant to drive conversations and discovery. For two days (May 31-June 1, 2019), festival goers will get a chance for a second year to focus on these themes at the Hard Rock Hotel.
