Hot Spots: EDC week edition!

Phil Sharp

Bassrush Pool Party at Rehab Thursdays You know it’s EDC week in Vegas when Rehab, the original pool party at the Hard Rock Hotel, goes all bass on us. The wild and woolly Bassrush party is back, highlighted by DJs Cookie Monsta, FuntCase, Slander, Lookas, Sigma, Snails, TC, Trouble, Twiitch and Zomboy. June 18, 11 a.m., $20+ women, $40+ men.

Hardwell Album Release Party at Hakkasan Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, W&W, Dyro and Blasterjaxx are among the producers who show up on Hardwell’s Revealed Vol. 6 mix, which officially arrives June 19. Considering so many of those guys are in town for EDC, who knows what will happen at Hakkasan Thursday night? June 18, 10:30 p.m., $30+ women, $50+ men.

Erick Morillo at Life The day- and nightclubs of SLS pack a powerful punch during this year’s festival weekend, but there are few DJs anywhere in Las Vegas this week that bring a heavyweight reputation to rival that of Erick Morillo. June 18, 10:30 p.m., $20+ women, $30+ men.

Floatopia at Ditch Fridays Grab your inflatables, get in and stay in and let DJs Bliss and 1Mor take over at the Palms Pool Friday, where slackers have a shot at winning EDC tickets. June 19, noon, $10+ women, $20+ men.

Armin van Buuren at Omnia Because there’s almost nothing left for him to do in the world of trance, van Buuren just remixed the theme music for Game of Thrones. No word on whether he’ll be traveling between Caesars Palace and Las Vegas Motor Speedway by dragon. June 19, 10 p.m., $20+ women, $30+ men.

Disclosure at Daylight English brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence have been killing it with their Wild Life residency at Light since March, and the duo just announced new album Caracal at their own Wild Life Festival in England. Disclosure plays Light and EDC this weekend, so catch their most convenient Daylight gig. June 20, 11 a.m., $20+ women, $40+ men.

Steve Angello at Foxtail Pool Club Going from one-third of supergroup Swedish House Mafia to Billboard’s current cover boy, Angello is ready to blow up bigger than before, planning to unleash his first solo album Wild Youth—which might just sound like something completely new. June 21, 10:30 a.m., $20+ women, $30+ men.

New World Punx at Tao Beach Powerhouse pairing Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten—who played Coachella and are also set for New York City’s Electric Zoo for Labor Day Weekend—aren’t really Vegas pool-party regulars, but hey, this isn’t just any sun-scorched weekend in June, right? June 21, 11 a.m., $20+ women, $40+ men.

Afroki at Wet Republic Monster team-ups, part one: Afroki is Afrojack and Steve Aoki. Will Afro hold it down while Aoki boat-dives and cakes your face at Wet Republic, or will they trade off? Either way, it might be the best Monday afternoon ever. June 22, 11 a.m., $20+ women, $30+ men.

Carnage and Dash Berlin at Marquee Monster team-ups, part two: Both these DJs have their own loyal followings, both will be at the Speedway, and technically, so will this club, sponsoring and assembling EDC’s VIP Skydeck experience. But only at Cosmopolitan can you catch Carnage and Dash Berlin together, no VIP pass required. June 22, 10 p.m., $20+ women, $30+men.

Diplo and Skrillex at XS Monster team-ups, part three: Their Justin Bieber-topped tune “Where Are Ü Now” has gone gold, but this bumping ballad is only one dimension of what things sound like when Diplo and Skrillex get together. They’re doing it for an XS night-swim to cap EDC? This should be nuts. June 22, 10:30 p.m., $20+ women, $75+ men.
