DJs don’t just suddenly take over the dance music world. It typically takes more than a handful of hit tracks and a series of memorable shows to make an impact. The explosive success Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall have experienced in a relatively short time with a relatively small amount of music is closer to the dynamic arrival of a pop star.

The Chainsmokers’ meteoric rise—behind ultra-catchy, quadruple-platinum smashes “Don’t Let me Down,” “Roses” and “Closer”—has most recently included winning the Favorite Electronic Dance Music Artist award at the American Music Awards and tallying three 2017 Grammy nominations for Best Dance Recording, Best Pop/Duo Performance and Best New Artist.

Now, The Chainsmokers are taking their act to Wynn Nightlife on the Las Vegas Strip, signing on for an exclusive three-year residency at XS and Encore Beach Club through 2019.

“We are so thrilled to have this residency,” Pall said in a statement. “They represent the best of what Las Vegas has to offer.”

The new era of The Chainsmokers in Vegas starts right away with their debut at XS this Friday night, January 6.

“Partnering with such talented and sought-after artists exemplifies Wynn Nightlife’s commitment to bringing world-class entertainment to our luxury venues,” said Alex Cordova, Wynn Nightlife executive vice president and managing partner. The Chainsmokers at XS at Encore, January 6.
