Explore EDM

EDM Day Parties

In the 24/7 party city of sunny Las Vegas, Nevada, don’t restrict EDM enjoyment to nightclubs. Wear a bathing suit to watch DJs and performers entertain 21-and-older crowds at daytime pool parties from March through October. Check calendars for your favorites, such as Kaskade, David Guetta, Cedric Gervais, Lil Jon and The Chainsmokers, at eight venues that include the Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay, Encore Beach Club at the Wynn and Marquee Dayclub at the Cosmopolitan. Buy tickets online for expedited entry or table service. At night, explore the exciting Las Vegas Strip and downtown’s Fremont Street under the glow of neon lights.

Sunset Music Festival

Join the big dance party known as the Sunset Music Festival during the Memorial Day holiday the last weekend in May in Tampa, Florida. Listen to your favorite performers play house, dubstep, trance and more at the two-day event at Raymond James Stadium. Upgrade your tickets to include VIP viewing decks, express entry, party gear and storage lockers. Before or after the festival, discover Tampa Bay’s beautiful waterfront, eat authentic Cuban food in Ybor City and visit top-notch attractions, including Busch Gardens Theme Park, the ZooTampa at Lowry Park and the Florida Aquarium.

Hollywood’s Nightlife

Go club hopping along Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California, keeping your eyes open for celebrities as you move to the beats of high-profile EDM artists. You’ll be blown away by the sound systems and light shows. Find out why the biggest names, like Tiesto, Eric Prydz and Paul Oakenfold, play at the Avalon Hollywood nightclub. Take in city views on the patio of Ohm Nightclub or head the upscale Lure Nightclub and scope out the VIP area that overlooks the stage. Absorb more pop culture by visiting the Grammy Museum, Sunset Boulevard and the TCL Chinese Theatre.

Cielo Club

Only in New York City can you see the Statue of Liberty on a morning boat cruise, watch a Broadway show in the afternoon and party at night in exciting clubs. In the Meatpacking District of Manhattan, appreciate the sophisticated vibe of Cielo while listening to cutting-edge EDM tunes. Here, exceptional service is emphasized, the décor and dance floor are inviting, and the DJs are first-rate. Join a fun dance battle, and be impressed by smoke screens and the sound system in the intimate space. Spend extra time in the city to explore diverse neighborhoods and visit iconic attractions.

Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre

Put this magical place on your bucket list. Sit outside between the famed red rocks and take in a show near Denver, Colorado. An eclectic lineup of musicians long to play here, from symphonies to rockers, rappers and country crooners. On a stage flanked by towering red rocks, EDM stars like Flosstradamus, Kygo and Marshmello spin tunes under the stars. Arrive early to explore the surrounding Red Rocks Park; see educational displays in the Visitor Center, and venture onto hiking and biking trails nearby. After the show, head into Denver and try one of the many craft breweries on the Denver Beer Trail.

Movement

Over three days the last weekend in May, see EDM’s top stars in Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit, Michigan. Imagine an all-ages gathering where Andres, Tiga, Nina Kraviz, Charlotte de Witte, Diplo and Mija are among nearly 90 stars in the spotlight on multiple stages. Extend the fun by attending an official Movement after-party. Looking for activities to do after the techno fun ends? Explore walking paths and cafes in the surrounding RiverWalk area, visit neighborhoods like Corktown and Greektown, and learn how locals influenced the world by visiting the Motown Museum or The Henry Ford museum complex.

The Mid

Venture to the meatpacking district in the West Loop of Chicago, Illinois, to find an EDM lover’s club, a two-level concert experience with a balcony, three bars, VIP section booths and room for 801 people. The destination regularly draws popular artists in several EDM genres – Dubfire, Shiba San, Tycho, Maya Jane Coles, Seven Lions and Mura Masa have been on this stage. During the day, find top-flight diversions in Chicago. See stunning architecture on a boat cruise, ride the Centennial Wheel at Navy Pier and look over the city from 360 Chicago atop the John Hancock skyscraper.

Imagine Music Festival

Over three days in September, EDM artists and fans take over the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Georgia for an immersive experience featuring more than 100 performances on six stages. Music by luminaries like deadmau5, Tiesto, Seven Lions, STS9 and Cizsak continues into the wee morning hours. Camp overnight, see circus acts and art installations, attend transformational workshops – with topics including yoga, meditation and healing touch – and find food from around the world. Need to cool off? Take a dip in the splash pool. Afterward, head to cosmopolitan Atlanta for culture, clubbing and historic attractions.
