There has been a void to large hip hop concerts in Vegas, and outside of the clubs on the strip, no one has done hip hop concerts the right way in Vegas in a long time.
Launching just before the pandemic, the concert and event producing company has work with the likes of Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, Wyclef Jean, Anderson Paak, Saweetie, Big Boi(from OutKast), Red & Method Man, JaRule, Lil Dicky, Rev Run, Ski Mask The Slump God, & a lot more.
Finding a niche in the biggest entertainment producing city in the world isn’t easy, but iKon Presents has been able to find a home in Urban events space. Recently doing events with Rod Wave, Bryson Tiller, Blxst, & others, they have been able to sell out multiple venues and it appears that they aren’t slowing down any time soon. From clubs to concert venues iKon Presents continue to bring amazing events to Las Vegas.
Upcoming shows with Nas, Summer Walker, Lil Durk, and a host of other major artists, iKon Presents continues to push the envelope and create a fresh new wave of concerts for the hip hop & RNB community.

He is the lead member and founder of the collective and record label Only the Family (OTF). Durk garnered a cult following with the release of his Signed to the Streets mixtape series (2013–2014), leading to a record deal with Def Jam Recordings. The label would release his debut studio albums, Remember My Name (2015) and Lil Durk 2X (2016), before dropping the artist in 2018. In April 2020, Durk made his first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 with the single "Viral Moment" off his fifth studio album, Just Cause Y'all Waited 2 (2020). Lil Durk's commercial resurgence continued with singles such as "3 Headed Goat" (featuring Polo G and Lil Baby), "Backdoor", and "The Voice"; his features on Drake's 2020 single, "Laugh Now Cry Later" and Pooh Shiesty's song, "Back in Blood"; as well as his LPs, The Voice (2020) and his joint album with Lil Baby, The Voice of the Heroes (2021)—which became his first release to debut atop the Billboard 200.
They have some unreleased events to be announced very soon that will really push them to another level this Spring & Summer. We look forward to seeing what’s ahead for iKon Presents.
