It’s no secret that our favorite time to party in Las Vegas during Labor Day Weekend is the holiday itself, on Monday, when the clubs are still packed but the vibe is more celebratory than explosive. And night is better than day, because the weekend warriors will be catching flights home while the rest of us dance the night away. At Wynn and Encore, the weekend mega-lineup (The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Kygo, Major Lazer, David Guetta, Alesso and others) concludes at XS on Monday night with none other than Diplo, and that seems like the perfect DJ for this party.

Why? Because no matter what he’s up to, from sacrificial spoofs via Viceland show What Would Diplo Do? to wooing Rihanna in interviews to working on a disco-focused album with Mark Ronson, Diplo’s always coming back to Wynn, always playing big weekend sets like this one, forever soundtracking the Strip’s parties. And he seems particularly fond of Vegas at the moment. “It’s changed a lot,” he recently told GQ. “The whole tide of that music is turning towards what me and my crew are doing. So I’m not mad at Vegas.” Diplo at XS at Encore, September 4.
