This Spring, Divas and DJs Descend Upon Vegas

From Calvin Harris (pictured) to Mariah Carey, the biggest names in music can all be found in Vegas.

Las Vegas will turn into a veritable "Divas Live," when three of the most legendary names in music soon set up shop on the Strip. The desert city has long been known for huge headliners, but the names coming through town the next few months are impressive, even by Vegas standards. In addition to our favorite ladies, the EDM scene is exploding in Vegas. From Electric Daisy Carnival to top DJs at the Wynn Las Vegas and Caesars Palace, springtime (when the pools start reopening!) is the best time ever to be in the city.

The original diva herself, Ms. Diana Ross, begins a nine-show run on April 1 at The Venetian Las Vegas, featuring more than five decades of hits. From her chart-topping days with The Supremes to her equally triumphant solo career, “Some Memories Never Fade” promises to be one memorable evening. 

Arguably the most anticipated show of the year opens at Caesars Palace the following month. After years of rumors, Mariah Carey is finally getting a foothold in Vegas with her #1's show, premiering in May. With 18 #1 hits under her belt — from "Vision of Love" to "Touch My Body" — it will be fun to see how the best-selling female artist of all time squeezes in her impressive catalog. We hope she plays "I Stay In Love"; we love the Vegas-set video!

Soon after Mariah's premiere, country’s biggest diva hits Vegas. Reba McEntire arrives in June and has dates scheduled through the end of the year. Reba, who is splitting her residency with super-duo Brooks & Dunn, kicks off her run at Caesars Palace on June 17. 

As big as those names are, it's just the beginning of the musical offerings in Vegas. The Rock in Rio USA music festival lands at the new City of Rock venue for two weekends in May, with Bruno Mars, John Legend, No Doubt, and Taylor Swift headlining. The rock weekend is May 8-9 and the pop weekend happens May 15-16. 

Electronic music is huge everywhere, but especially in Vegas. The Electric Daisy Carnival, held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, is now a rite of passage for all EDM-lovers (who end up returning again and again). This year's event runs June 19-21, with the biggest DJs in the world — from Avicii to Calvin Harris to Tiesto — in attendance. 

If after all that concert excitement you still aren’t ready to return to your room, it's time to explore the city's legendary nightlife. Kick things off at SHARE Nightclub, which continues to be one of the most popular gay clubs in the Western U.S., thanks to incredible DJ sets and a friendly, sexy crowd. Don't miss Vegas' new den of hedonism, Omnia nightclub at Caesars Palace. Check their schedule to see when resident DJ Calvin Harris is spinning, and when other huge names, like Oliver Heldens and Krewella, are on deck.

If you like it poolside, stop by Drai’s at The Cromwell. Part beach club, part nightclub, all fun… and a view to die for. 

And if you can’t make it out for EDC, Wynn Las Vegas has your back. The luxury resort's resident club, XS, just completed a $10 million renovation, and booked some of the biggest DJs in the coming months: Avicii, David Guetta, Dillon Francis, Skrillex, and Zedd.

Vegas is just begging the music lover in you to book a trip, so don’t just sit there. Get your overnight bag out and start packing. Click here for more info.
