The Winter Music Conference is kicking up on South Beach this week, but Miami isn’t the only city making headlines in the electronic dance music scene.

Wynn/Encore Las Vegas have just announced a list of 34 DJ/producers that have that signed exclusive residencies for 2012. It’s no secret that electronic dance music is taking over the Las Vegas club scene, and this announcement makes it clear that the A-list clubs are cutting big checks to stay ahead of the curve. This is one giant move for the nightclub scene that increases the massive big production value often associated with the top Las Vegas shows.

The list includes both the world’s top electronic dance music talent and a number of rising stars. A few of the names were previously announced (Deadmau5, Tiesto) and a few come as no surprises (like Afrojack, a resident since 2010 and rumored beau of Las Vegas “staple” Paris Hilton).

“Residencies with this many artists, offering this caliber of talent, will create a remarkable experience for fans of the electronic dance music genre,” said Jesse Waits, co-owner and managing partner of XS and Tryst nightclubs. “Our venues will feature an incomparable lineup in 2012. With the addition of special surprises throughout the year, there will be no better destination for music enthusiasts than Wynn Las Vegas.”

  1. Thanks for the great post, I have heard the other than Marquee, it is all about the Encore and Wynn Properties to have signed the best resident DJs for 2012. I must say….having Tiesto and Deadmau5 is pretty insane and I can’t wait!
