Mandalay Bay’s new Light Nightclub will officially open April 26, the Light Group announced Wednesday.

The new venue also revealed its initial lineup of resident DJs to include Skrillex, Sebastian Ingrosso, Zedd and Baauer, keeping in line with the trend of A-list headlining DJs that has helped popularize other major nightclubs like Marquee at the Cosmopolitan and XS at Encore.

The new club is the second iteration of Light, which originally closed in 2007 after a six year run at the Bellagio. The Light Group announced its return in November, relaunching in an unprecedented partnership with Cirque du Soleil.

The new Light, originally scheduled to open in March, has touted itself as being an interactive, changing performance concept that will bring elaborate costumes, multimedia elements and top-tier technology to the mainstream nightclub experience.
