Stuck at home Memorial Day Weekend? Rained out on the East Coast? Marquee Las Vegas has the solution to all your problems (well, kind of). The night and day clubs will be streaming the Benny Benassi, Arty, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano and more live from the day club via Be-At.tv. While it may not be as exciting as spending the weekend surrounded by models and bottles in the City of Sin, it’s a much better time than grilling hot dogs by your parents’ above ground pool.
Tune in live here.
In anticipation for his May 4th show at New York’s recently reopened Marquee nightclub, Adrian Lux has prepared a silky smooth mix showcasing his tastes for more melodic side of house music.

It’s an easily digestible, sonically satisfying breakfast guaranteed to shake off the morning blues.
Be sure to grab tickets to see Adrian at Marquee NY this Saturday, May 4th.

The brand, which is well known for its stellar bookings, is attempting to bring their unique nightlife experience out of the club and into your bedroom. Although your sound system might not be as big as theirs, at least your soundtrack will be similar.

The 36-track, 2-disc first installment will feature productions from mainstage mainstays like Tiësto, Nicky Romero, and Hardwell, trance big wigs like Ferry Corsten, Gareth Emery, and Dash Berlin, and a number of unreleased goodies.

Following his Freaks of Nature Tour, Kaskade returns to the summer touring circuit in 2013 — only he isn’t exactly touring by standard definition. Between early May and Labor Day weekend, he will be playing a dozen shows at Marquee’s nightclub and a dozen more at the dayclub. Tickets are available now, along with a free Monday mash up to commemorate — Kaskade’s Summer Lovin Mash vs Inpetto, “All That You Give Faces.”

For months rumors of Marquee’s triumphant return as a top tier player in NYC’s nightlife have circulated through club land. Its top secret renovations were promised to revolutionize what it meant to be a club in the Big Apple and its talent bookings were said to focus heavily on a darker, techno aesthetic. With the revered Strategic Management Group at the helm, there should have been very little doubt that the newly renovated club would shake the foundation of nightlife in Manhattan.
Pretend you’ve never been to Marquee (at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.) Adrenaline seeps into your veins as you step through the velvety partitions. You are surrounded by suits and legs bookended by ultra-mini dresses and stilettos. Just before the elevator doors opens, the operator mirrors the grins around him and says, “Have fun tonight!” Drink in hand, you make your way to the floor. In case you weren’t sure, a mural on a wall proclaims, “You’re not in Kansas anymore.”
Driving through the desert from Orange County to Vegas, we were treated to the rare spectacle of moonrise over the barren peaks. Less than 24 hours ago, I had gotten final confirmation that I had won Dancing Astronaut’s editorial contest to cover the New Year’s Eve weekend at Marquee. Because no road trip to Vegas would be complete without it, we stopped at In-N-Out, hoping some double-doubles would fortify us against the sub-40 Nevada chill. After making a real friend out of the internet friend we were crashing with, we hastily decked ourselves out and hopped back on the I-15 towards the piercing, gleaming lights of the strip. The most powerful spotlight on earth reaches out towards the infinite depths of space from the top of the Luxor pyramid; like moths to flame, we were irresistibly compelled.
