Deadmau5: The Bubbles About To Burst

The forthcoming Hakkasan-owned Pure at Caesars Palace replacement, Omnia announced their DJ lineup for their spring 2015 season. Omnia's righteously horrible website tells us that DJ's include Afrojack, Armin Van Buuren, Chuckie, Krewella, Martin Garrix, Nervo, Nicky Romero, Oliver Heldens and Showtek.

DJ kingpin Deadmau5 made an interesting comment on the new club announcing their line up.

bubbles about to burst"


If anybody should know that the nightlife wave in Vegas is about to crash, it would most certainly be him. Deadmau5 rode the wave up, switchbacked the crest and dropped into the barrel and now feels the misty spit catching up on him as the massive nightlife wave crests and washes to shore.

I definitely don't feel the omnipresent nightlife promotional energy coming from the casinos anymore.

Big thanks to VT superfriend Vajohna for the tip.

Comments & Discussion:

Deadmau5 also has an exclusivity deal with Steve Wynn, who has been calling the nightclub scene a "bubble about to burst."

Other DJs have been critical of Vegas before (see Avicii saying that the city "is a product" and doesn't have the authentic musical passion of Ibiza, Spain), but it's sort of worth noting when someone who essentially works for Steve Wynn says the same damn thing he does. Not that there's payola involved, maybe he's just heard these things from Steve and honestly believes him, but Steve also has a track record of being outspoken and sometimes, yeah, steering a message to suit his needs.

I was fascinated by the club explosion, not for the environment or culture but for the technology used and the sheer volume of some of the facilities. It is amazing the venues people can dream up and create. That said, I won't be sad if it begins to fade away and at the same time hopefully paving the way for a lounge act resurgence.

It definitely feels like there is a shift coming. Nightclubs are here to stay, but I can see where we might see some downsizing and some scale back from hot DJs to just a high end club.

It's hard to tell whether this is just a rotaton of what clubs are hot. Haze is closing. Light has been a bust. Palms, Rio, Paris, PHo, Mirage, Luxor and Hard Rock clubs were all hot at one time and are now either in trouble or dead. Any bubble is likely in the cost of the DJs.

I Think that the club scene will remain hot but isn't sustainable enough to make DJ's a major deal for much longer. People are always going to want to go to clubs.

it would be interesting to see how Krewella will continue...it's tough to do EDM when you fire your DJ.

@nullzero00 Bahahahah! Truer words have never been spoken.

I also agree with what Avicii said. Saying it's not like Ibiza. He's right. Europe is a totally different beast. Vegas is, and always has been, all about the money.
