In Vegas, there is no bigger weekend for fun than Memorial Day Weekend, which brings legendary DJs and musical acts to nightclubs and kicks off the pool party season for the summer. From Mandalay Bay at one end of the Strip to the Wynn at the other end of the Strip, Vegas will be jam-packed with musical performances as clubs bring their A-game to compete against each other, each outdoing the next.
The nightclub scene during Memorial Day Weekend is the stuff of legends. Clubs bring in the best DJs and musical performers from around the world for four days of fun. Starting on Thursday night, clubs up the ante every night, and the party doesn’t stop until Sunday night.
Hakkasan at MGM Grand
Hakkasan promises an epic weekend for clubgoers, with Steve Aoki performing on Saturday, May 26 and
Calvin Harris performing on Sunday, May 27.
XS Nightclub at Encore
XS’s entertainment makes it clear where the club got its name: unparalleled excess. Perhaps the most exciting holiday weekend on the Strip, David Guetta will be performing at XS on Saturday, May 26, Kygo will be performing on Sunday, May 27, and Marshmello will be performing on Monday, May 28.
Jewel Nightclub at ARIA Resort & Casino
If you missed Steve Aoki at Hakkasan on Saturday, he will be performing at Jewel Nightclub at ARIA on Monday, May 28. The club will also be bringing Lil Uzi Vert to perform on Saturday, May 26.
Other notable performances include: Zedd at Omnia Nightclub at Caesars Palace on May 26, Afrojack at Intrigue at Wynn on May 26, and Gucci Mane at Tao Nightclub at The Venetian Las Vegas on May 26.
Of course, the most fun part of Memorial Day Weekend in Vegas is going to the pool parties and lounging with a drink, working on your tan, listening to your favorite DJs spin, and checking out the hot bodies by the pool.
Wet Republic at MGM Grand
Tiesto will be spinning poolside at what is, perhaps, Vegas’s most legendary pool party, Wet Republic at MGM Grand, on the afternoon of Saturday, May 26.
Marquee Beach Club at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
Marquee has distinguished itself as a venue for phenomenal music acts, and Memorial Day Weekend will be no different. Dash Berlin will be performing poolside at Marquee on Saturday, May 26.
Venus European Pool Lounge at Caesar’s Palace
For a more low-key experience, Venus Pool at Caesars Palace isn’t as crowded and wild as the big pool parties, but it is still a sexy scene with good music and reasonable pricing.
Memorial Day Weekend promises to be a non-stop party, with late-night fun flowing into after-parties, which flow into recovering by the pool with a Bloody Mary, just in time to head back to your hotel room for a nap before heading to a new nightclub for yet another epic performance. The standard is set high for Memorial Day Weekend, and the nightclubs and pool parties have risen to meet that challenge. No matter which clubs and pools you ultimately choose to spend your long weekend partying at, you are guaranteed good music and good times.
