Vegas nightlife is clearly going all-in during the weekend of the Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao fight, judging by the slate of new bookings.

Added to the May 2 lineup: Jay Z hosting at Marquee (presale tickets are already sold out); Nicki Minaj performing on Chateau’s rooftop; Snoop Dogg holding his usual Snoopadelic Cabaret at Tao; Lil Wayne taking to the mic at Foxtail Pool Club; and Jamie Foxx performing live at the Bank. Meanwhile, OutKast’s Big Boi will supply tunes for a pre-fight party at Liquid Pool. Minaj will also play the night before at the Tropicana Havana Room/Beach Club. Also, on May 1: A DJ set by mega-producer Mark Ronson at Marquee. May 3 sees rapper/singer Future perform at Life; Busta Rhymes return to Drai’s for a performance; and 2 Chainz join the bill at Foxtail. And Fabolous turns around two appearances within one day’s time, starting with Tao on April 30 and ending with Tao Beach on May 1.

April 21 marks the season debut of Drai’s Yacht Club, the rooftop pool complex’s Tuesday night-swim party. Adventure Club will steward the party’s musical route that night. Drai’s will also hold the 10-week Ultimate Bikini Championships starting July 5. However, the first casting call takes place at the daylife venue on April 26. If you need your fix of competing beauties sooner than that, Wet Republic launches its Bikini Battle Royale on April 24.

Every other subgenre has its own DJ-curated night, so why can’t emo? Pop Punk! F*ck Yeah! aims to help you relive all the 1990s/2000s sadz and feelz starting April 24 at the Bunkhouse with guest DJ Marko Desantis of Sugarcult.
