New Dayparty “Sundown” to Debut at Daylight on 4/26/15

In December of last year Hakkasan Group purchased a controlling stake in Light Group and 22 of its properties including Light Nightclub and Daylight Dayclub. Already responsible for MGM’s Hakkasan and Wet Republic properties, as well as Caesar’s brand new superclub Omnia, Hakkasan Group aims to differentiate Light from its other properties by focusing on a diversely-curated lineup rather than mainstream superstars. With that in mind, Daylight at the Mandalay bay is introducing the Sundown concept, the Strip’s first deep house day party / sunset party.

The new weekly party, to be held every Sunday at Daylight, is the brainchild of brand development VP Zee Zandi, marketing manager Pearce Cleaveland and renowned producer Nic Fanciulli, who plans to bring a lot of his underground DJ friends along for the ride. Inspired by Ibiza’s celebrated sunset parties, Daylight is ready to pair top, underground house music talent with the vibrant natural wonder Las Vegas displays at each day’s end. Beginning with Guy Gerber on April 26, some of the most revered alternative DJs will take the stage every Sunday sunset, crafting a visual and harmonious experience.

This party starts at 2 PM in the afternoon and runs until 11 PM at night. We have a free girl’s guestlist as well as a free or discounted even ratio guest list for Sundown at Daylight. To get on the guestlist or book bottle service, download the Discotech mobile app.

Expect to see a lot of these same names spinning at Light’s dayclub counterpart, Daylight Beach Club.

True to its mission of being a laboratory for inspired experiences, Light has been experimenting since it’s 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 Light 2015 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 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.
