As the temperatures in the Nevada desert continue to rise, Vegas pool party lineups are getting more and more exciting. Encore Beach Club in Steve Wynn’s Encore Hotel has just announced nineteen new dates for June and July, including appearances from Diplo, Steve Angello, and Porter Robinson during EDC, and Afrojack, Dirty South, and Above & Beyond during Fourth of July weekend.

2012 was a huge year for dance music, championed by the every growing club scene in Las Vegas, an influx of national tours and festivals and the undeniable mainstream acceptance of the “EDM” sound. Only a week into the new year and 2013 is already proving to be an even bigger one for our beloved genre – made abundantly clear today as the Wynn properties (Encore Beach Club, Surrender, Tryst, XS) have just announced their expansive residency roster for the upcoming year. From Bassnectar to David Guetta, Avicii to Loco Dice, Wynn’s extensive cadre of nightclubs have the sounds to satisfy the full spectrum of electronic music fans.
Managing partner of XS, Jesse Waits, had this to say;
“Our team has worked day and night to present an unrivaled roster of residencies again in 2013 including both major headliners and the DJs we believe to be the next superstars of this genre. We hope to maintain our reputation as the mecca of dance music through these exclusive partnerships.”
Check out the full list of residencies after the break.
By 1pm, doors to Encore Beach Club were already sold out, signifying that the upcoming party featuring the commercial house productions of prolific Frenchmen, David Guetta, would have a bit more “OOMPH” than your usual day party at the premiere club. Whenever David sets foot inside of a building he brings with him a level of energy that is unparalleled by any artist in the game right now. His set was not only fantastic, but his charisma and energy behind the decks launched partiers into a state of frenzy as the suave-Parisian spun a slew of high-energy hits. We’ll dive into a few tunes that were played by David at Encore Beach Club after the break.
Earlier this year we, like others, noted how Las Vegas has started to morph into an American Ibiza — a mecca for DJs to be treated like kings and play in megaclubs on the scale only Las Vegas can provide. Even David Guetta said that “there is a new energy here that I really, really love.” With single clubs boasting 20 or 30 resident DJs, it is hard to disappoint almost any electronic fan.
This footage from the Wynn Resorts is a testament to how much the scene has grown and features video from Encore Beach Club, Tryst, XS, and Surrender over the crowd-flooded Memorial Day Weekend holiday. The video features the biggest names in dance music like Steve Angello, Deadmau5, Skrillex, David Guetta, Tiesto, and Avicii and shows their time behind the scenes as well as on stage. There are few videos that get us excited these days, but the Wynn just has so much talent it constantly reminds us that moving to Vegas wouldn’t be that bad.Posted by
As the countdown to Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas crosses the 2-week mark, fans are rounding up their groups of friends in preparation for what could be the single biggest party of the year. Last year’s event was an enormous success on many levels, and this year’s edition is poised to reach even greater heights.
While the festival itself runs 3 nights from Friday June 8th to Sunday June 10th, a dizzying selection of EDM artists will be playing daytime and nighttime parties all over Las Vegas during the Insomniac-sponsored “EDC Week”. So if you and your friends need some help in staying organized and making sure you don’t miss out, click past the break for a full calendar of EDC Week events and planning resources: (more…)Posted by
We’ve been telling you about the constantly growing list of DJs signing exclusive residencies in Las Vegas, but the 2012 lineup of artists that’ll be at the various Wynn properties throughout the year is too big not to share. Between Encore Beach Club, Surrender, Tryst, and XS, over thirty artists will be calling the Wynn / Encore their home in Sin City throughout 2012 — and it symbolizes the hotel’s huge investment in electronic music. Among the artists on the roster are such names as Afrojack, Calvin Harris, Alesso, Dada Life, and Tiesto. David Guetta will be bringing his F*** Me I’m Famous party to Encore Beach Club, and other familiar names like the Manufactured Superstars, Max Vangeli, Nervo, Skrillex, and Steve Angello are all on the list. Other clubs in Vegas have tried to bring in talent like this, but the breadth and depth of this list will make it hard for anyone to top. Is Vegas the new Ibiza? The likening has never seemed more appropriate
Encore Beach Club is preparing to re-open its doors as soon as the Las Vegas weather allows, and of course they’re doing it big. Things get underway for spring previews in just a few weeks on March 17th, at which point the club will be open each weekend until the grand opening on April 21st. Steve Angello has the honors of kicking things off with AN21 on the first official party of the summer, while Tiesto will take the decks on Sunday April 22nd. Encore Beach Club will be open Friday thru Sunday throughout the summer, with “Daystar Sundays,” “Recess Friday” theme parties, and even more DJs on Saturdays. There’s no shortage of impressive talent that’ll be making its way to the decks before the summer comes to a close — think Afrojack, Deadmau5, Calvin Harris. You know what that means: you should probably try to fit this into your schedule should you find yourself in Vegas this summer.
We’ll admit that a world-class DJ like Tiesto never really seemed like the kind of guy to have a residency in a spot called “The Joint,” but thankfully he’s doing things a bit bigger for 2012. Our top EDM act of 2011 has announced that he’s relocating to the Wynn / Encore for exclusive residencies at Encore Beach Club, Surrender, and XS. These are three of Dancing Astronaut’s favorite places to party when in the City of Sin, and we’re excited for all that Tijs has in store for the year. His official debut will take place at XS on Saturday February 4th as part of the Super Bowl weekend festivities. Tickets are available for purchase now; from past experience, you should probably get there early.
Hopefully this makes all you Memorial Day Weekend Las Vegas excursionists excited. Good looking women, great music, pristine venue, and plenty of beverages that encourage ‘fun’ things to
happen. Is this heaven?
