A handful of EDM icons have popped up on the otherwise Top 40-heavy iHeartRadio Music Festival lineup, released earlier this week. Tiësto, Zedd and Benny Benassi are among the DJs/producers hitting the main stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena September 20-21, while Krewella and Pete Tong are confirmed for the daytime iHeartRadio Music Festival Village, across from the Luxor. Tickets go on sale July 20.

Bad Boy Bill and Richard Vission bring their House Connection Phase 1 tour to Vegas July 28, taking over Surrender Your Saturday with eight decks at the Encore nightclub. Bill’s new album drops the same day, so expect a set with plenty of fresh material.

Planning on hitting up the Pride events in September? MGM Resorts’ Fabulous Las Vegas will take over the popular Luxor LGBT pool party Temptation on September 8, dubbing it the official closing party for the annual celebration. If that’s not enough, REVO Sunday at Revolution Lounge will also be part of the Fabulous finale.

The NBA has been in the house, recently, and not just on the court for Summer League. On July 12, LA Clipper Blake Griffin spent his second night in a row at Tao, along with fellow players including Marcus Camby and DeAndre Jordan. Griffin chatted with fans and even bought a bottle for resident DJ Eric D-Lux. Over at Marquee, Chicago Bulls forward Carlos Boozer spent the night at a VIP table in the Boom Box Room. And NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders was spotted celebrating a friend’s bachelor party at Encore Beach Club, soaking in a private infinity pool while Dirty South played for the dayclub.
