Hot Spots: Diplo at Encore Beach Club, Calvin Harris at Wet Republic and more

Major impact: From early gigs at the Palms to his current Wynn residency, Diplo has been a steady presence on the Vegas club scene.

Zero Point Flower of Light You won’t know exactly where this fest is happening until you become a member and join the “family in the desert,” but you do know the weekend will consist of yoga and quantum science and sustainability presentations by day, and sets from Audiovana, Brett Rubin, Edgar Reyes, Jupiter Jay, Hon Solo, Demarco Cruz, Kevo and more by night. June 5-7, $28+, Arizona/Nevada border,

Ditch Fridays with Taryn Manning at Palms Pool Get in the mood for the Season 3 premiere of Orange Is the New Black (next week!) by catching Pennsatucky’s daytime DJ set at the Palms Pool. Manning pulls double-duty for the weekend, spinning at Mandalay Bay’s Foundation Room Saturday night. June 5, 10 a.m., $10+ women, $20+ men.

Diplo at Encore Beach Club Riding high on this week’s release of his third Major Lazer album, Peace Is the Mission, and the chart-scaling Skrillex-Bieber collabo “Where Are Ü Now,” chameleonic Wynn resident Diplo is back. The difference this time: He’ll be blowing it up under the summer sun at EBC instead of his usual night gigs at Surrender and XS. June 5, 11 a.m., $30+ women, $40+ men.

Kevin Dillon at Rehab One of the best episodes of the HBO show Entourage had Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon) forsaking a wild boys’ weekend at the Hard Rock Hotel to spend quality time with his manly masseuse. Now that the Entourage movie is here, it’s only fitting that Drama returns to the Hard Rock, though he’ll be skipping the rubdowns and partying at Rehab instead. June 6, 11 a.m., $20+ women, $40+ men.

Las Vegas Bikini Classic at Sapphire Pool Club It’s time for round three. The judges’ choices plus one crowd favorite from Saturday will move on to the finals, set for July Fourth weekend. Sapphire’s rules say no talent is required to enter, but we disagree with that statement. June 6, noon, $50+.

Simon Doty at Artisan Afterhours Artisan’s intimate pool went “toptional” for MDW and continues to get #Improper with an overnight party in the lounge featuring the driving techno sounds of Canadian DJ Simon Doty. M!KEATTACK, Brad Robertshaw and JustInKey support. June 6, 11 p.m., free for women and locals, $10+ men.

Tyga at Drai's The year-old Cromwell rooftop pool club is fast becoming the home for hip-hop on the Strip, especially when top-grade talent rolls through for extended performances for Drai’s Live. Compton rapper and Kardashian affiliate Tyga is the latest to debut here, with DJ Franzen supporting. June 7, 10:30 p.m., $20+ women, $30+ men.

Imagine with Nicky Romero at Omnia If you missed the debut of Omnia’s new Sunday night escapist experience (see Page 26), swing through and catch rising Dutch star Nicky Romero, whose sustained, anthemic style is particularly well-suited for the new megaclub’s eye-popping visuals. June 7, 10:30 p.m., $20+ women, $30+ men.

Wet at Night with Calvin Harris at Wet Republic The MGM Grand dayclub’s midweek night frolic is back, possibly with a vengeance, definitely when the most huge, Taylor Swift-dating Scottish DJ/producer takes a break from selling out Hakkasan and Omnia to crush it at Wet at Night. June 10, 10:30 p.m., $20+ women, $30+ men.
