The Return of Kaskade


He could have his choice of venues the world over, but this summer Kaskade has chosen to bring his turntables back to Las Vegas for another spin.

The Grammy-nominated deejay recently kicked off his 24-date “Summer Lovin’” residency at the Marquee Nightclub and Dayclub at the Cosmopolitan. For 12 weekends from May through August, the producer and remix superstar is slated to bring his signature euphoric sound to the trendy venue, which was built specifically for electronic dance music.

“Vegas is like nowhere else. It’s the mecca for dance music right now,” said Ryan Raddon, better known by his stage name, Kaskade. “To be able to be there 12 weeks throughout the summer means I get to be with these fans who are just so insanely enthusiastic and ready to have the time of their lives Saturday nights and continuing into Sunday.”


“The experience is totally one of a kind and tailored to the experience of the clubgoer,” said Morgan Deane, director of marketing at Marquee.

Fans can choose between two sets: a “sunny, pretty” daytime experience by the pool or a “sultry sunset” experience inside the club. Kaskade never plays for less than two hours and has played as long as 12.

For people interested in seeing him more than once, Kaskade promises, “No two sets are the same.”

There are, however, some very notable visual components to the artist’s shows in the evening: a four-story LED wall, pyrotechnics and lasers. Some nights even feature fireworks.

“I want to create performances that people connect with and realize that this is the only moment this exact performance will happen,” Kaskade said. “All the visual elements enhance the music and all of their senses are heightened and stimulated in a way that they can absorb everything going on at once. It is intense and surely something you have to experience to truly understand.”

Tickets for “Summer Lovin’” begin at around $30 and a limited number of VIP packages are available for $900 per person, which include front-of-the-line privileges.
