Hakkasan at the MGM Grand welcomed top electronic music stars when they took over the nightclub with a five-day, action-packed lineup that started Wednesday, June 19, and continued through Sunday, June 23. In honor of the eventful weekend of Electronic Daisy Carnival, the nightclub not only had world-renowned deejays spinning for the masses in the main room, but transformed the Ling Ling Club into an extension of the madness with even more artist programming.

The third-level nightclub, known for hosting open format artists, welcomed electronic music sensations for the first time, giving guests multiple opportunities to see their favorite turntable maestros under one roof.

A roster of superstar deejays headlined at Hakkasan during EDC Week.

Kicking off the week, Swedish electro house duo Dada Life performed in the main club room with Tony Arzadon on Wednesday. On Thursday, Hardwell hit the turntables with Dannic and Dyro in the main room, as English progressive house DJ Michael Woods entertained guests in the Ling Ling Club.

Starting the weekend off, Hakkasan resident deejay Tiësto got the crowd dancing into the early morning on Friday, while R3hab hit the decks with TJR downstairs in the Ling Ling Club. Grammy-Award winner and Hakkasan resident deejay Calvin Harris kept the celebration going full throttle in the main room on Saturday with Michael Woods and took the opportunity to film his “Thinking About You” music video in the club, while the Nervo twins followed.

Wrapping up the weekend in style, Deadmau5 pumped up the crowds on Sunday evening, playing fan favorite such as “Some Chords” and “Strobe” with DJ Fergie. The Grammy-nominated deejay put on an amazing show complete with custom robots for guests, which included Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, who arrived around 1:15 a.m. and sat at a table in the main room with a group of friends.
