DRAI’S BEACH CLUB • NIGHTCLUB AT THE CROMWELL
LAS VEGAS CELEBRATES GRAND OPENING WITH
INTERNATIONAL POWER-HOUSE DJ RESIDENCIES
65,000 Square-Foot Rooftop Venue to Launch with 17 Resident Artists
Including: Eric Prydz, Adventure Club, Showtek and DVBBS
Las Vegas, long recognized as the dominant force for setting the trends in nightlife and music, took another giant step forward today when Victor Drai announced he will celebrate the opening of his 65,000 square foot Drai’s Beach Club • Nightclub at The Cromwell Las Vegas by tapping an exciting and diverse mix of resident DJ’s to perform at the state-of-the-art club which opens this Memorial Day weekend. Hailing from all corners of the globe including the U.S., Sweden, Australia, the Netherlands, Russia, Canada and Italy, the roster of resident DJ’s featured at the newly minted club represents the most exciting group of performers on the scene today.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the line-up of Resident Artists we will be featuring at Drai’s,” explains Alex Soifer, talent buyer for Drai’s. “Victor’s goal is to showcase the most talented, ground-breaking artists from around the world and provide them with a dramatic and electrifying setting that is unrivaled in Las Vegas – day and night.” “We are assembling a line-up that is reflective of what is on the top of the charts right now,” adds Victor Drai. “These are the artists that get people onto the dance floor – now they will be live here in Las Vegas performing in a venue that will both awe and inspire. It is a going to be a true 360 degree music and social experience.”
In addition to Eric Prydz, Adventure Club, Showtek and DVBBS, the Resident Artist line-up includes:
• DJ Irie
• Project 46
• Sick Individuals
• Sidney Samson
• Ummet Ozcan
• 12th Planet
Soifer has assembled a roster of talent that crosses the musical spectrum and will appeal to music fans and club-goers of all types. Highlighted by Prydz’s most recent Ultra performance and from his unrivaled ability to combine commercial success with underground notoriety to Adventure Club’s slick EDM and floor-rumbling dubstep to Showtek, the Dutch dance music duo who have been cruising the Beatport’s Top 10 for the past year, Drai’s will focus on artists that are both ground-breaking and exciting to see in a live setting. “We are booking artists that will ignite the crowd and create an energy that is missing from many Las Vegas clubs today,” adds Soifer. “You won’t come to Drai’s and stand there holding your camera phone above your head aimed at a DJ a football field away. Instead, you are going to be in the middle of the biggest dance party on the Strip.”
