Mohegan Sun Arena named Casino Venue of the Year

12 February 2024

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Mohegan Sun Arena was named “Best Casino/Resort Venue of the Year” at the 35th Annual Pollstar Awards on Wednesday, 7 February in Los Angeles, California. The Pollstar Awards recognize and support the live entertainment business’ most innovative companies, venues, artists, tours and executives. “Best Casino/Resort Venue of the Year” is an inaugural category for the award ceremony, making Mohegan Sun Arena the first to receive the prestigious recognition.

“With over 1,200 casinos in the U.S., to be singled out as the best by Pollstar is a tribute to the men and women who run our entertainment venues,” said Tom Cantone, President of Sports & Entertainment for Mohegan. “When you put people first, great things happen. This is the second national recognition Mohegan Sun has received for entertainment this year. Both accolades are a validation of excellence for the Mohegan brand, and our dedication to programming some of the best entertainment in the industry. Thank you to Pollstar, our partners at Live Nation, and the experts who voted for us.”

Pollstar has served as “The Voice of Live Entertainment” for over 40 years, providing the most up-to-date, relevant and useful data available for the global concert industry, and serving as the industry leader in covering live entertainment worldwide. This recognition from Pollstar’s panel of experts and members marks the 20th national entertainment-focused award received by Mohegan Sun. In December 2023, Mohegan Sun was named the 2024 “Best Casino with Live Entertainment” in Newsweek’s annual Readers' Choice Awards.

In addition to the 10,000-seat, award-winning Mohegan Sun Arena, Mohegan Sun’s highly regarded live entertainment venues include the Wolf Den, Comix Roadhouse, novelle, The Lansdowne Irish Pub & Music House, The Cabaret Theatre, and the newly renovated Sun Patio.
