Kid Cudi at Pure That’s Mr. Cudi to you. The rapper and actor, whose musical nickname comes from his last name, Mescudi, is booked for a Caesars Palace double header on Saturday. Cudi plays Venus Pool Club during the day, then spends the night at Pure, where he’ll host and perform. Venus Pool Club, doors at 10 a.m. Pure Nightclub, doors at 10 p.m., prices vary.
Tone Loc & Young MC at Studio 54 You know that special moment when a whole club realizes they know the song and start to sing along together? Expect that on repeat when Studio 54 goes old school. So bust a move over there and do the wild thing. Doors at 10 p.m., $20 and up, $10 for locals.
Kourtney Kardashian hosts S.K.A.M Saturdays at Hard Rock Pool No, she’s not a S.K.A.M. artist. Yes, she’s one hot piece of Kardashian genetics. Hit the pool with the reality TV princess as she hosts the party. Doors at 11 a.m., $30 for men, $20 for ladies.
Diddy, Serge Devant and Funkagenda at Wet Republic Who knew Diddy liked house music? Actually, we don’t know if he does or doesn’t. What we do know is that he’s hosting the event while Devant and Funkagenda provide sounds for another major party at the ultrapool. Doors at 11 a.m., $75 and up.
Christopher Lawrence at Déjà vu Fusion Afterhours The party really does go 24/7 during holiday weekends in Vegas. A trance set from America’s best DJ ’08 feels like the perfect way to bridge that annoying time gap after the mega clubs close Saturday night and the pool parties begin on Sunday afternoon. Doors at 4 a.m., $20 and up.
Sunday, September 5
Roger Sanchez at Tao Beach Say goodbye to the Beatport Beach party for the summer with a bang. You can’t be tired yet from partying! Take a cue from Sanchez the last time he was in town: “Sleep I can do later.” Doors at 10 a.m., $20 and up.
Pete Tong, Kaskade & Dirty South at Encore Beach Club Taking a break from Ibiza is almost unheard of for Tong, but he’s been trying to hit Vegas for a major holiday weekend—and this Sunday it happens. Hear Tong chat about the gig and more in the Nocturnal Admissions podcast for free later this week. Doors at 11 a.m., $40 and up.
Lil Jon at Vanity Yeaaaaahhhh! That never gets old. Neither does seeing Lil Jon. So grab that crunk cup and prepare to get outta your mind. Also get ready to duck when he asks the ladies to throw their unmentionables on stage. No one wants the night to end by slipping on some undies in a club. Doors at 10 p.m., $20 and up.
Will.I.Am at Wet Republic He’s not just another celebrity DJ stepping behind the tables who’s going to play all his own songs. Okay, maybe one Black Eyed Peas song. Or two. We aren’t psychic, but we do know he spun an awesome house music set at LA’s Electric Daisy Carnival. Here’s hoping he does the same on Sunday. Bonus: a set by Sharam. Doors at 11 a.m., $75 and up.
Keri Hilson at Blush Meet a collaboration machine. The Grammy-nominated R&B/hip-hop singer has worked with everyone from Kanye West to Akon, but she’ll shine just as bright when she takes the mic solo. Catch her Sunday at Blush, where she’ll perform hits off her 2009 album, In a Perfect World. Doors at 9 p.m., $30, local ladies free.
Monday, September 6
Fedde le Grand, Robbie Rivera, Laidback Luke, Chuckie & Afrojack at Wet Republic While other venues recuperate from the long weekend, Wet Republic parades out what its touting as “the most monstrous lineup in holiday weekend history!” Not sure about all of history, but the biggest one on this Monday in Vegas for sure! Doors at 11 a.m., $75 and up.
