5 EDC Week Parties You Can’t Miss

Which parties will you be at?

5) Dirtybird Records (Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin + Kill Frenzy) | Drai’s Nightclub Afterhours – Thursday, June 19

We're starting the week off dirty. For those who don't know, Drai’s is one of the newest hot spots in Vegas. They recently opened up a new nightclub and dayclub, but Drai's has always been popular in Vegas for its after hours. The club supposedly has one of the best sound systems in Vegas, so we know the Dirtybird team is ready to give those speakers a try. This deep house party is definitely the ultimate warmup for your crazy weekend at EDC!

4) Kaskade Summer Lovin | Marquee Day Club – Sunday, June 22

If you go to Marquee Dayclub on Sunday, you’ll be starting off your summer with the ideal host: Kaskade. By this point of EDC Week, you’ll probably be pretty exhausted from all that dancing. Listening to Kaskade is the perfect way to get your adrenaline pumping and get ready for the last lap around the race track.

3) Eric Prydz | Drai’s Beach Club – Saturday, June 21

Looking for something to do before the second day of EDC? An Eric Prydz pool party at the brand-new Drai's Beach Club sounds like the perfect way to catch some rays and start your day. 

2) Skrillex/Diplo/RL Grime | XS – Monday, June 23

Although this isn’t officially listed as a “Jack U” event, we’re betting it turns into one for powerhouse producers Skrillex and Diplo. When RL Grime joins in on the fun, you know it’s going to be a memorable way to end EDC Week. We considered this for the number one spot. However, because it takes place the day after EDC ends, we realize that most fans will already be on their way out of Vegas. Haven't bought tickets yet? Well, you're in luck, because we're giving away two tickets to a lucky EDM.com reader: http://edm.com/blog/xs-edc-week-skrillex-diplo-giveaway

1) Above & Beyond | Wet Republic – Thursday June 19

I’ve got to end this list with someone who gives me “the feels.” Above & Beyond will give you those feelings at Wet Republic, a pool party at the MGM Grand. Fresh off their new hit single “Sticky Fingers,” Above & Beyond are definitely a can’t-miss during EDC week. Tickets for this pool party are already sold out, so those of you with tickets should feel lucky that you got your sticky fingers on them.
