Diplo’s sets at XS have become major events. The genre-spanning DJ and producer remains one of the biggest names on the Wynn Nightlife roster, and this week he takes control of the club on Monday night to launch a pretty huge Vegas week. He won’t be alone.

MAGIC’s winter week brings all things retail and fashion to the Strip beginning Tuesday, guaranteeing bigger-than-usual midweek parties up and down Las Vegas Boulevard. It only makes sense that Off White founder and designer Virgil Abloh will make his return to XS to set a stylish pace.

Abloh, recently rumored for the head job at luxury fashion house Givenchy, is currently working on design projects that go beyond fashion. “I’m taking the concept of streetwear and translating it to the art world,” he recently told Architectural Digest. His eclectic musical tastes, ranging from cutting-edge hip-hop to classic house to favorite dance tracks, should sync up nicely with Diplo’s sounds.
