If it feels like Wynn Nightlife is unveiling a dynamic new DJ roster every few days, that’s about right. Just last week, Encore Beach Club unveiled the specific lineups for its Art of the Wild weekend parties, starting with Bob Moses, DJ Tennis and Kaz James for Guy Gerber’s Rumors on March 22; elrow’s submarine trip extravaganza El Triangulo de las Rowmudas with Fisher, Paco Osuna, Bastian Bux and De La Swing on March 23; and Carl Cox teaming with Joseph Capriati, Nastia and Nic Fanciulli on March 24 for a marathon noon to 8 p.m. Sunday set.
But Wynn started February by announcing a group of new residents that further stretch the boundaries of the Las Vegas nightclub soundscape. Some of these DJs and artists have performed at XS, EBC or Intrigue once or twice, while others are new to these venues.
“We are constantly searching for up-and-coming artists and superstar DJs from around the world to break into the Vegas market through our programming,” says Alex Cordova, Wynn Nightlife Managing Partner. “We look forward to bringing these fresh acts to our venues this year as we continue to build our lineup with the best international talents.”
Nora En Pure Deep house and indie dance darling Nora En Pure (aka Daniela Di Lillo) made a splash at Marquee Dayclub last year, thanks to festival-ready tracks like “Come With Me” and “Morning Dew.” After appearances at Coachella, Ultra, Tomorrowland and Privilege Ibiza, she’s ready for a big-time Vegas residency. April 6 at Encore Beach Club.
Anna Lunoe One of the biggest dance music names to emerge from Australia in recent years, Anna Lunoe broke through with debut single “Real Talk,” which ranked No. 1 on Beatport’s indie chart for four months straight. Her weekly Hyperhouse radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 allows this diverse artist—she’s also a vocalist, producer and noted curator—to continue to push the boundaries of her genre. March 15 at Encore Beach Club.
Alan Walker The Norwegian phenom opened his first-ever North American tour in 2017 at Wynn’s intimate Intrigue Nightclub. His 2015 single “Faded”—released when he was 17 years old—has earned multiplatinum certifications around the world, and he has amassed more than 15 billion audio and video streams worldwide. Walker’s progressive big-house sounds are an ideal fit for Wynn and Encore’s big rooms. Dates TBD.
Saymyname The “godfather” of hard trap made his EBC debut in August and brought a distinctly different vibe to the nighttime swim party. Expect this bacon-loving LA native to become a Vegas favorite this summer. March 30 at Encore Beach Club.
Elephante A classically trained pianist who began his career as a singer and songwriter, Tim Wu put a dent in Vegas at last year's Electric Daisy Carnival and during a handful of Hakkasan gigs. His progressive house leanings and creative remixes have made him a festival favorite and a rising star. March 1, April 5 & 13 at Encore Beach Club.
Salvatore Ganacci When this Swedish producer teamed with fellow Wynn resident Jillionaire (of Major Lazer) to create “Fresh,” DJs like Dillon Francis and Skrillex championed its hard-hitting sound and started a snowball effect that continued with “Ride It” with Sebastian Ingrosso and “Imagine.” After numerous dates last year in China and Europe, he’s ready to rock Vegas. March 6 & 22 at Intrigue; March 8 & 28 at Encore Beach Club; March 31 at XS.
