It’s never too early to make your plans for a big holiday weekend in Las Vegas, and Labor Day Weekend (September 1-5) is right around the corner. LDW is a special time of year, because even though we all know summer in Vegas lasts a little longer, it’s still the last big party weekend for the Strip’s stupendous dayclubs.

Encore Beach Club’s lineup is laced with star DJs, including Zedd, Alesso, Kaskade and David Guetta, plus night sets from RL Grime, Flosstradamus and Marshmello. Elsewhere at Wynn and Encore that weekend, Surrender brings Major Lazer; Intrigue offers AlunaGeorge and Kiesza; and XS explodes with Guetta, Zedd, Diplo and DJ Snake.

At MGM Grand, Hakkasan goes big with Tiësto, Steve Aoki, Hardwell and Calvin Harris; the property’s sparkling Wet Republic pool club will see Tiësto and Aoki plus Afrojack and Martin Garrix. Down the Strip at Mandalay Bay, Light features the Stafford Brothers, Metro Boomin and DJ Mustard; sister club Daylight doubles down on Mustard and the Staffords while adding Laidback Luke and J. Cole to the mix.

Labor Day Weekend also brings The Chainsmokers and Jamie Foxx to Jewel at Aria, and Harris, Armin van Buuren and Jauz to Omnia at Caesars Palace. If all this seems like too much to handle, don’t worry, there’ll be a lot more. Plan to start September—and wrap up your summer—accordingly.
