Light at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, the state-of-the-art nightclub turned on by the creative minds behind Cirque du Soleil and The Light Group, announced their talent roster for the coming year which features some of the most in-demand producers and DJs in electronic, dance and hip-hop globally. Ranging from the iconic to the emerging, clublife connoisseurs can expect a wide variety of music for their Las Vegas experience at Light. The full 2015 line-up is listed below unveiling this year's talent roster.
Returning to Light in the New Year is Alesso. A club resident since its conception, Alesso is a rising star who in 2015 will be a major pinnacle in the dance music space. His track "Heroes (we could be)" with Tove Lo raced up the charts in late 2014 and was just a taste of what to expect as he will release his debut studio album on Def Jam this year. Also returning to Light is DJ and music legend Carl Cox, whose pioneering ways have not only paved the way for dance music to be where it is today, but also endeared him to generations of electronic music fans worldwide. In addition, there is Axwell along with Ingrosso, both who together are releasing an album on Def Jam in 2015; Baauer, who will continue to host his massively popular Studio B monthly residency; GTA who have been blowing up the festival circuit with their Miami bass productions; also returning are dance music favorites, A-Trak, Bassjackers, Clockwork, Norman Doray and Grammy nominees Sultan + Shepard.
New at Light, as the club ventures into its third year as one of the most sought after destinations on the Vegas strip, is U.K. talent Disclosure. Known more as a live act, their appearances will be a rare DJ set. Having previously taken place in New York City, San Francisco and Chicago, Light will serve as the Las Vegas home for Disclosure's Wild Life specially-curated shows. Called a "joyous and masterful" show by ConsequenceofSound.net, it's an event with friends and artists they like. Also onboard is EDM pioneer FatBoy Slim; American producer and Grammy nominee Morgan Page; hip-hop megastar adventurers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis; and will.i.am, known for his incredible tracks with the Black Eyed Peas and accomplished producer in his own right. There is also DJ Mustard who is making major moves in hip-hop production circles having already created major hits for the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz, Kid Ink and 2 Chainz just to name a few.
Light has been experimenting since its opening with new artistic content on a monthly basis. In 2015, Light is bringing a fresh look to the club with its new Artistic Director Maximiliano Torandell. The Argentinean producer and performer will soon unveil new moments and performances for a sexy and avant-garde Light2015 show. What makes a Cirque performance at Light different than any of the other Vegas shows? "Light is a nightclub, not a stage show and therefore the requirements for the performances are different," says Torandell. "We want the performers to be capable of seducing and captivating our audience without separating them from the club experience. We don't want people sitting down and watching a show, we want a flawless integration of the performance and the party." Watch for more on LIGHT's new artistic direction.
