Traditionally this holiday weekend has been the unofficial kickoff party each year for Summer and has grown to be one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. Many of the venues on the strip are gearing up to present the biggest talent from Electronic Dance Music to Hip Hop and Pop.
“I love this city,” says Sancho Van Ryan. “Where else can you go and have hundreds of different clubs, restaurants, and shows all on one street? Its nice to be on the front page of Vegas.com and I am looking forward to spending my sixth Memorial Day Weekend here.” The bigger super clubs like XS Nightclub, Hakkasan, Light Nightclub and the soon to be opened Drais Nightclub will be offering the best DJ talent that you will see anywhere in the world.
Headliners for the weekend in Vegas include: Skrillex, Steve Angelo, Avicii, Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Krewella,
If you want to soak up some sun and stay cool you can try one of the pools where beautiful people surround you in a desert Oasis powered by the likes of Deadmau5, Diplo, Alesso, Nicky Romero, Carl Cox, Puff Daddy and more.
