For the past eight years, XS has been the most acclaimed club in the history of Las Vegas, so what better way to celebrate than with eight nights of incredible events?” says Alex Cordova, Wynn Nightlife’s executive vice president and managing partner.

Indeed, XS has been named the No. 1 nightclub in the United States by Nightclub & Bar for an unprecedented five years—on top of being recognized last month by Maxim magazine as Las Vegas’ highest-earning club. So there’s much to celebrate, and the Wynn Nightlife juggernaut is doing so with the biggest names on its resident DJ roster.

The eight momentous parties begin on Friday, May 19, running Friday-Monday for two straight weekends, capped off with the Memorial Day Weekend holiday. Marshmello kicks things off that first Friday; David Guetta spins May 20 and 27; Diplo takes control for Nightswim on May 21 and again on May 29; The Chainsmokers perform May 22 and 26; and Kygo gets behind the decks for Nightswim on May 28.

Expect a revamped Nightswim experience to raise the level of revelry to new heights. “We have set the bar high for these two anniversary weekends and look forward to seeing many of our friends from over the years so they can experience all that we have in store,” Cordova says.
