Hakkasan announces newest residents; Afrojack, Above & Beyond and more
The MGM Grand’s Hakkasan megaclub is starting 2014 in style with the announcement of its acquisition of four new resident acts. Afrojack, Above & Beyond, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and W&W join the club’s already illustrious stable of talent alongside mainstays Calvin Harris, Hardwell, Steve Aoki, and Tiësto. For Afrojack, the move comes after 4 years spent at the Wynn properties and XS. Above & Beyond find themselves locked into a residency at the third club in Sin City’s ever expanding and ultra-competitive landscape, moving from Marquee to Wynn, and now to Hakkasan in 2014. Similarly, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, as well as W&W, make the move from Marquee for the year-old club.
The one artist not returning to Hakkasan’s lineup in the new year? Deadmau5.
It seems that in the world of nightlife warfare the die has been cast.
