As the electronic music scene and DJ phenomenon explode in popularity, Las Vegas seems to be the hub of the action, being called the next Ibiza. Inside the city, IN at XS Las Vegas plays host to the who’s who of the world’s most talented artists, creating a passionate following for this weekly soiree.
IN, short for Industry Night, is the Monday evening festivity held at Encore’s sophisticated nightclub. Catering to the local market, the venue offers complimentary admission to all locals and industry professionals, even on holiday weekends, featuring major acts, such as Afrojack and Alesso, on Halloween.
The roster of DJs that have circulated through the weekly party have included Diplo, Skrillex, Fedde Le Grand, deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Avicii, Wolfgang Gartner, Afrojack, Steve Aoki, Sander Kleinenberg, Sander Kleinenberg, Feed Me, LA Riots, Bad Boy Bill and more.
Known for its established electronic reputation, it comes as no surprise that major music festivals have partnered with XS to hold their official closing party at the weekly event. Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) called IN its official closing party with Laidback Luke running the show as the top headliner. Other major artists from the weekend’s three-day festival flocked to the party, including Avicii, Ferry Corsten and Manufactured Superstars’ Brad Roulier and Shawn Sabo, alongside passionate EDC fans.
In September, Identity Festival did the same with its fans taking over the party on Labor Day evening with a one-of-a-kind set featuring Skrillex, Afrojack and R3HAB.
