The tide of dance music has been turning. Fans who once flocked to bright neon lights and big room drops now seek deeper, darker sounds, and while Las Vegas will always be home to all that glitters, Wynn Las Vegas wants to be the first to welcome the headiest of dance fans into its megaclub folds.
In 2018, the nightlife brand welcomes leaders of the underground revolution with exclusive residencies from Solomun, Jamie Jones and Black Coffee. It’s a major sonic shift for the Strip, and one Wynn Nightlife managing partner Alex Cordova thinks can only bolster a growing segment of American dance fans.
“These first-ever underground residencies on the Strip will showcase three of the biggest names in the genre,” Cordova says in a press release. “Techno and tech house continues to rise in popularity in the United States and abroad, and we look forward to bringing and expanding this music style into our programming.”
Solomun’s +1 parties have been a huge hit in Ibiza for years, and its U.S. expansion tour in 2017 made him a hipster house favorite. Jamie Jones has been one of the underground’s leading DJs since the mid-2000s, and his label Hot Creations has made him a tastemaker beyond the decks. Black Coffee helped put South Africa on the dance floor map and blew up so hard last year, we had to name him one of our DJs who dominated in 2017.
The three selectors are true purveyors of groundbreaking sound and style, and they join Wynn’s roster of mainstream stars, including The Chainsmokers, Diplo and Afrojack in 2018. Visit Wynn online for tickets and more information.
