Kaskade will join the Zouk Group as a resident artist in 2023. The venerable DJ and producer has been spinning at Tao Group venues on the Strip most recently after his previous residency timed out at Kaos at Palms. The move to Resorts World Las Vegas, where he will perform at Zouk Nightclub and Ayu Dayclub beginning with a CES week gig at Zouk on January 6, isn’t surprising considering his collaborative partner Deadmau5 has a residency there as well. Kaskade is currently on the docket for four shows in January and two in February. Find more info at zoukgrouplv.com.
