Moby’s special Labor Day Weekend set at Hakkasan, his first date in Las Vegas since 2009 and the club’s only non-resident performance that weekend, may be the most buzzworthy of the moment, but a few other LDW talent announcements are shaping up pretty nicely: Hip-hop progenitor Rev Run and DJ Ruckus hit Pure on August 31; Ray J and Ginuwine play Chateau on August 30 and 31, respectively; and 1 Oak scores Major Lazer (August 30), The Cataracs (August 31) and Ke$ha (September 1). Light celebrates its first Labor Day Weekend with Sebastian Ingrosso, Skrillex and Nicky Romero on successive nights, and its dayclub alter-ego, Daylight, features Zedd on Saturday and Alesso on Sunday.
Mac Miller hit Surrender’s late-night pool party Splash Dance on Thursday night, with a crew of 16 and a luxury bungalow overlooking the action as DJ duo Zeds Dead spun on the pool deck. The 21-year-old rapper and producer only paused for one photo op, posing with a jumbo-sized likeness of the lucky birthday girl partying in an adjacent VIP booth.
Ne-Yo was back in his hometown for a set at Palms Pool’s Ditch Friday party. Decked in red, white and black, the R&B star put out a set of fan favorites, including a massively cheered-on performance of “Miss Independent.” Adult film legend Ron Jeremy was also spotted relaxing at the Palms Pool on Friday, taking it ultra-easy with a piña colada in hand and Crocs on foot.
And U.K. boy band The Wanted drove the ladies wild at Marquee and Tao this weekend, taking photos with adoring fans while celebrating band member Max George’s brother’s birthday. Indian film actress and singer Priyanka Chopra also partied at Tao on Saturday, showing off her dance moves during DJ Vice’s set and her single with Pitbull, “Exotic.”
