If you're coming to Vegas, best prepare for the heat, and there's no way to cool down like a NightSwim pool party at Wynn, especially now that "Innerbloom" dance band RÜFÜS DU SOL has announced a DJ residency.

“We’re excited to welcome RÜFÜS DU SOL to the Wynn Nightlife family of diverse artists,” Wynn Nightlife managing partner Alex Cordova says in a press release. “We've been a fan of the band for quite some time, and feel as though the nighttime concert setting of Encore Beach Club is the perfect fit for their sound and audience.”

The Australian trio does have a delightfully dark sound for adult-swim atmospheres. The band makes its DJ residency debut Saturday, June 9, with at least two more performances Saturday, July 7, and Friday, Oct. 5. It joins Galantis, Alesso, The Chainsmokers, Diplo and more on the Wynn 2018 roster.

"As producers who tour and perform as a live band, we don’t often get the chance to DJ in big rooms and push that element of what we do, because we’re so focused on touring the full band show,” RÜFÜS DU SOL's James Hunt says. “We started out playing in clubs and so much of what we do is influenced by DJ culture, so it’s exciting to be able to take it back to the clubs and be given a residency to push our style of music. We’re going to have a lot of fun."

Tickets for RÜFÜS DU SOL's NightSwim sets and the rest of Wynn's 2018 residency roster are now available. Visit Wynn online for details and more information.
