Zedd Announces Residency with Ayu Dayclub & Zouk Las Vegas

Zedd is helping lead the return of nightlife in one of dance music’s biggest hubs.

On Wednesday (April 7), the producer announced a new Las Vegas residency at Zouk Nightclub and Ayu Dayclub, venues inside the recently built Resorts World Las Vegas. The residency will run until 2023, with show dates and ticket information will be announced in the coming weeks. Additional artists will also be announced.

Zedd has previously held down residencies at Vegas mega-clubs Hakkasan, Omnia and Wet Republic Dayclub. The clubs inside the 3,500-room Resorts World Las Vegas are the first in the U.S. to be run by Zouk Group, a lifestyle and entertainment company out of Singapore. Resorts World Las Vegas is the first new resort property to be built on the Strip in more than a decade.

“After several iconic performances at Zouk Group venues over the last decade, we are proud to now partner with Zedd and continue our longstanding relationship with him,” Andrew Li, Chief Executive Officer of Zouk Group, says in a press release. “To provide such a visionary in the music industry with a brand-new stage at the Strip’s newest resort is truly an honor, and guests can expect an immersive show experience that extends well beyond a traditional DJ set.”

Zouk Nightclub and AYU Dayclub to Open in Resorts World Las Vegas

The iconic Singapore nightlife institution is going to Las Vegas.

Zouk Group announced on Thursday (Nov 12) a partnership with Resorts World Las Vegas to bring the homegrown brand to Sin City in 2021.

This marks the global lifestyle company’s first venture in the United States. The US$4.3 billion (S$5.78 billion) integrated resort is slated to open in the summer of next year. 

The 3,500-room casino-resort Resorts World Las Vegas will include four distinct Zouk concepts, which will collectively occupy nearly 100,000 sq ft. Developed by Malaysian corporation Genting Berhad, it’s being billed as the city’s largest development in almost two decades.

The multi-concept complex will include: The Zouk Nightclub, similar to the flagship Zouk Singapore; AYU Dayclub, an outdoor venue with a Southeast Asian tropical island theme; RedTail, Zouk’s first foray into social gaming bars, where guests can enjoy drinks and food while playing a variety of games such as beer pong, darts and pool; and FUHU, a high-energy, experiential dining venue offering contemporary Asian cuisine.

“The partnership between Zouk Group and Resorts World Las Vegas will bring entertainment and lifestyle brands together on a property destined to breathe new life into the Las Vegas market,” said Andrew Li, chief executive officer of Zouk Group, in a statement.

“With over 29 years of experience in the nightlife industry, the Zouk brand is proud to make its debut at Resorts World Las Vegas, in a destination considered by many to be the entertainment capital of the world.”

He added that he hopes the venture will be a way to showcase Singapore’s approach to entertainment and a way of staying ahead in the scene’s competitive landscape.
