Through monster pop hits like “Clarity” and “The Middle” and years headlining at the biggest nightclubs in Las Vegas like Hakkasan, Omnia and XS, Zedd became one of the biggest DJs in the world. Now he’ll be the inaugural resident DJ at Resorts World Las Vegas venues Zouk Nightclub and Ayu Dayclub, set to open on the Strip this summer.

"Las Vegas has become a massive part of my life. Having the opportunity to play so many shows there throughout the years has made it like a second home to me,” the 31-year-old, Russian-born musician and producer (real name: Anton Zaslavski) said in a statement. “My Vegas shows have become a central hub to connect with fans, friends and artists from all over the world. I couldn’t be more excited to create a brand new and exciting show at my new home at Resorts World Las Vegas with Zouk Group."

The Singapore-based lifestyle and entertainment company Zouk Group is the nightlife and daylife partner for Resorts World and will operate the nightclub and dayclub as well as several other food and beverage and entertainment venues at the property, the first brand-new major resort to open on the Strip in a decade.

More DJs and artists on the Zouk roster are expected to be announced soon. J Balvin’s Neón Experience, set for September 16-19, is the first event scheduled at Zouk and Ayu.

“After several iconic performances at Zouk Group venues over the last decade, we are proud to now partner with Zedd and continue our longstanding relationship with him,” said Andrew Li, chief executive officer of Zouk Group. “To provide such a visionary in the music industry with a brand-new stage at the Strip’s newest resort is truly an honor, and guests can expect an immersive show experience that extends well beyond a traditional DJ set.”
