Vegas Memorial Day Weekend 2018 Things to Do
- Written by Kathy Wen
The long Thursday through Monday Memorial Day weekend falls the week after the world famous Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC). As such, many Memorial Day concerts, events, and shows will seem like hangovers of EDC’s electronic dance music theme. This may bring additional EDM artists who may stay in Las Vegas an extra weekend. Nightclubs and dayclubs will host DJs both day and night, giving you opportunities to kickoff summer under the sun or experience true Vegas nightlife.
Here's our Top Picks for one of Las Vegas's busiest weekends:
Drai's at The Cromwell
See double all weekend at Drai’s Beach Club and Drai’s Nightclub. Two clubs, one venue. With a two-in-one combo like this, there’s no going wrong on Memorial Day weekend in Vegas. Every day, these hotspots will have artists like TroyBoi, Future, 2 Chainz, DJ Pauly D and even Migos. This lineup is so hot, you might have to put another layer of sunscreen on because it’s about to be fire. Yeah, the joke might be a little corny, but this lineup is fresh to death.
Encore Beach Club, XS or Intrigue at Wynn and Encore
If you like to get on with your bad self on the dance floor, but still like be pinky-up fancy, head to anything at the Wynn or Encore. They have beach clubs and nightclubs that will keep the party going all weekend. But just because they’re fancy, doesn’t mean they can’t have dope artists. We would like to coin the term now, it’s dope fancy. Encore Beach Club, XS and Intrigue will have artists like Diplo, Marshmello, Major Lazer, David Guetta and The Chain Smokers. So twerk the weekend away and stay classy while you’re doing it.
Temptation Sunday at Luxor
We’re here, we’re queer and we’re ready to party. This Memorial Day weekend, head to the hottest LGBTQIA+ party there is in Vegas, Temptation Sunday at Luxor. It’s only $20 to get in and it’s a pool party that will leave you gagging (that means it’s fierce). The drinks are poured with heavy hands, the cabanas are cute and DJ Casey Alva will pump up the party. Gaga said it best, “no matter gay, straight, or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, you’re on the right track” by going to this sickening pool party.
For those of you looking for something different , here is one of our favorite Las Vegas attractions
VEGAS INDOOR SKYDIVING
Not everybody wants to jump thousands of feet from an airplane. For the curious, yet not entirely daring, there's the thrill of indoor skydiving.
