KAOS Las Vegas To Feature Sets From J Balvin, Bad Bunny, Ozuna, Deadmau5, Eric Prydz & More In April
Spring is only a day away and whether or not your locale feels like it yet, the festival lineups, tour announcements and Las Vegas residency reveals have warmer days feeling oh-so-near.
Today, the new KAOS Dayclub & Nightclub inside the redesigned Palms Casino Resort continues to add to the excitement with more artists added for opening weekend (April 4–7) and beyond.
Latin urbano music heavy-hitters J Balvin, Ozuna and Bad Bunny, along with longstanding dance music kings Armin van Buuren, Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz add even more weight to an already stacked event calendar.
KAOS officially kicks things off by opening their nightclub doors on Thurs., April 4 for the first installment of "F#%*IN' KAOS THURSDAYS" featuring EDM DJ/producer Marshmello. Both he and Kaskade have the most dates of any artist currently on the KAOS calendar, which has talent scheduled well into May. The weekly Thursday evening parties will feature rotating guests, which include Cardi B on April 18 and Bad Bunny on April 25, the only date slated for the Puerto Rican Latin trap star. Fellow Puerto Rican Ozuna also has one show listed, on April 28.
For most artists booked, the term "residency" is being used a bit loosely, with most artists only booked for one to three shows, although it is possible more dates could be added in the TBD slots and into the summer months. Cardi was among the first artists to be revealed with a residency at the new club, but only has two shows lined up, the Thursday party, as well as the previously announced opening weekend performance on Sat., April 6 with Balvin and G-Eazy. Latin GRAMMY winner Balvin has also had just one show added to the schedule, at the nightclub on April 26.
Deadmau5 marks his return to Vegas with dates at KAOS on April 14 and 20, which, as Rolling Stone points out, will be about four years since his 2015 residency at XS in the Wynn. Skrillex is currently set for one date during opening weekend, at night on April 5 with Travis Scott. Longstanding house, techno and laser show king Prydz is slated for three shows: April 13, 26 and May 11. Godfather Of Trance van Buuren also has three dates, May 16 and 17 during EDC Week and the following Sunday, May 26, for a day party.
Speaking of EDC, KAOS, as well as pretty much every club on and off the strip, has special events during the festival, taking place May 17–19 this year with a yet-to-be-dropped lineup. EDC Week always brings in big names in dance music, and is a festival megastar DJs like Deadmau5, Skrillex and van Buuren have played on multiple occasions in years past, so fans are hopeful for more dates from them
Regardless of the length of stay for each artist, it is clear that there are plenty of jams to be had at the new KAOS. The daytime space has a pool and thanks to a retractable dome and will "be the first Vegas megaclub to be built as a year-round venue," according to Las Vegas Weekly. The KAOs calendar reveals the pool will be open daily beginning April 9, operating as a dayclub with a featured artist on Fridays–Sundays, with the nightclub operating Thursdays–Saturdays, as well as some Sundays.
"We are incredibly proud to present the next generation of the Las Vegas nightclub and dayclub experience with programming that transcends so many genres of music," the General Manager of Palms Jon Gray said. "Every performance at KAOS will be unique to each artist with next-level production and unique technology that we cannot wait to share with our guests."
