As far as the strip is concerned, Las Vegas weekends start on Wednesdays. In the City of Sin, five straight days of fun at nightclubs and dayclubs is the norm. Not only does this city party longer, harder, and more often than the rest of America, Vegas gets the best DJs in the world to provide the soundtracks for your clubs of choice. If you’re on your way to Las Vegas for the weekend of May 28 until June 1, 2014, here are some of the hot spots to attend in the party circuit.

Grandtheft with Akon at Surrender on Friday, May 30

Grandtheft will get the party bumpin’ with some help from hip-hop head Akon. Surrender has recently been known to switch up the format of the average EDM nightclubs in Las Vegas by adding special guests who represent a variety of genres. In a recent exclusive interview with Grandtheft, he talks about how his style of music fits the nightclubs perfectly. And when he was asked, “what is your craziest Vegas story?” He responded, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, no?” So you’ll just have to attend the show to find out.
