Art of the Wild returns for a huge Wynn weekend in Las Vegas

The Wynn Nightlife weekend event that ignited the current trend of European vibes and house music across the Las Vegas pool club landscape returns for another three-day romp at Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclub. Art of the Wild was one of the toughest early losses of 2020, when the festival-style parties planned for last March were called off at the last moment.

But several artists scheduled for that installation are back on the bill for this year’s Art of the Wild, including Bob Moses, Guy Gerber and Rüfüs du Sol. Plenty of other DJs and producers seldom seen spinning in Las Vegas will also be part of the festivities, including German underground favorite Patrice Bäumel, NYC Afro-house producer Layla Benitez, Detroit funkster DJ Holographic, Irish house and techno star Mano Le Tough and Italian-grown trance duo Tale of Us.

Three-day passes are still available to maximize the five megaparties taking over Wynn and Encore this weekend. Here’s the game plan: Friday begins with Wild Is Love at Encore Beach Club with Benitez, Damian Lazarus, Gorgon City, Michael Bibi and Seth Troxler, while XS hosts the Framework-produced show that night with Tale of Us, Le Tough and Bäumel. Saturday is all about elrow’s Enchanted Fowrest party with Claptone, Hot Since 82, Sohmi and Tony Varga at EBC. And Sunday wraps it up with Gerber’s Rumors event with Bob Moses and Perel at EBC and a monster set by Rüfüs du Sol at XS.

ART OF THE WILD July 23-25, 3-day pass $500. Encore Beach Club & XS, wynnnightlife.com/artofthewild.
