Drai’s Beachclub unleashes a monster lineup

The Deux twins are heading back to Drai’s.

Drai’s Nightclub has become synonymous with live, concert-length performances from the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B. But during the summer season, when the rooftop destination operates as Drai’s Beachclub, the soundtrack has shown greater range for the daytime party crowd spreading out over the plush 30,000-square-foot pool deck with its palm trees and unsurpassed Strip views.

If the stunning setting hasn’t put Drai’s at the top of your dayclub to-do list, this year’s dance artist lineup should. Returning to the party are DJ acts including Zeds Dead, Savi, the Deux twins, Destructo and 4B, and other familiar-to-Vegas artists locked in include A-Trak, Audien, Claude VonStroke, Dada Life, Pauly D, GTA, Showtek, locals Shelco Garcia & Teenwolf and Major Lazer member Walshy Fire.

Some of the newer names are Australian DJ, producer and vocalist Anna Lunoe; “modern dancehall” DJ Ape Drums; Canadian electro-house producer Felix Cartal; LA-based bass-thumper JayKode; Detroit-born house hitmaker Marc Kinchen (aka MK, who takes the stage Saturday with U.K. “booty house” DJ Will Clarke); Spanish record-spinner and music video director Sak Noel; London grime duo Stooki Sound; Mad Decent midtempo masters TWRK; and New Zealand singer/model/actress DJ Zeisha Fremaux. That’s a whole lot of fresh sounds coming to the Cromwell this season.
