The last time Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike played Vegas, it was 2015’s Electric Daisy Carnival, and the Belgian brothers known as the dance-music-festival kings debuted their brand-new track “Higher Place.” This month, the song—aided by a silky smooth vocal assist from R&B superstar Ne-Yo, a sunny Ibiza vibe and massive remixes from artists including Afrojack and Andrew Rayel—became the duo’s first No. 1 on Billboard’s dance charts.

Consider that this has happened just six months after DJ Mag put them atop its annual Top 100 DJs list and it’s easy to see why Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are among the fastest-rising acts in the electronic-music world. While an upcoming full-length album will no doubt contain more epic tracks, their focus has always been about creating wildly energetic live sets and interacting with rowdy audiences. When they make their Omnia debut this weekend, expect a frenzy of a party. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, January 23 & February 6, Omnia at Caesars Palace.
