Carlos Santana and Stevie Nicks are among the marquee names who'll take part in the next Sunset Session artist-development seminar in Las Vegas.

The annual event, which puts up-and-coming performers in direct contact with industry bigwigs, has helped such acts as James Blunt, Grace Potter and Jason Mraz. It's normally an invitation-only thing, but this year, members of the public can gain access by donating to a variety of charities, including Communities in Schools of Nevada, Three Square and Opportunity Village MusiCares.

Sunset Session will be held in Las Vegas November 8-10.
