Kaskade Returns To Las Vegas For Summer Lovin' Series

Kaskade has become the face of dance music in America for his upstanding demeanor and willingness to speak on issues that challenge dance music. He often shares his thoughts about the current state of the scene and other announcements to his fans through his Tumblr. Without question, EDM would not be where it is now without the influence of Kaskade. In an announcement on his tumblr, the iconic producer is planning to return to the place that kicked it all off for him. Starting in the summer of 2015, the Grammy nominated producer will be kicking off a new multi-year residency with the Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclub at the Wynn Las Vegas.

Kaskade has grown and evolved alongside dance music. His vital role has assisted in the scene reaching the level of success that it is at now. The first time he was booked to perform in Las Vegas wasn’t at a massive nightclub like today’s XS or Hakkasan, rather he was booked to play after-hours events for service industry workers looking for an introduction into electronic music at the time. However, in the summer of 2010, Kaskade made history for electronic music as the first ever solo EDM artist to be booked for a Las Vegas residency - his iconic Summer Lovin’ shows.

He kicked it off at the newly constructed Encore Beach Club, and according to his Tumblr post, “On opening day in the spring of 2010...thousands of people poured in to be at the pool party. Jaws were dropping at the spectacle of what we were creating. With all the promotion being low-key word-of-mouth and club flyering, the people who love the music found their way here. And they brought some friends. My residency at Encore Beach Club was sounding the alarm: everything changed that day. Thousands and thousands of people showed up to the opening. Las Vegas was going to be a destination for music lovers.”

Now, 10 years later, Kaskade is bringing home his Summer Lovin’ residency to XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club, alongside a ten million dollar renovation, courtesy of the Wynn Resorts. You can grab tickets to his Encore Beach Club shows here and XS Nightclub shows here.
