Trends, fashion, celebrities, events, music, and all things only Vegas
New Year's weekend in Vegas is about much more than just watching a ball drop and waving goodbye to one year to usher in another -- it's about celebration, revelry, and a lineup of entertainment that you won't find anywhere else in the world.
You've also got plenty of nightlife options to fit every musical taste. Get "crunk" with Lil Jon and Steve Aoki & Lil Jon at Surrender inside Encore at Wynn Las Vegas; enjoy a taste of SHM with Sebastian Ingrosso at XS inside Wynn Las Vegas; catch Laidback Luke at Haze at ARIA; witness Tinie Tempah performing at The Bank inside Bellagio, rock out with Good Charlotte & The Situation at Chateau Nightclub and Gardens inside Paris Las Vegas; DJ Pauly D spins at the Hard Rock's Vanity; Dirty South spins at TAO; or party at the Palms with T-Pain at Rain or Clinton Sparks at Moon.
On New Year's Eve, the stars come out all to ring in 2012! Keep up with the Kardashians -- Kim will be at TAO, Rob at Tryst and Kourtney and Scott Disick will host at Chateau Nightclub and Gardens -- or celebrate with "Peepshow" star Holly Madison at Gallery inside Planet Hollywood.
The biggest names in music are hosting and performing, too, including: Black Eyed Peas members Will.I.Am at Surrender and Fergie at the opening of 1OAK; Chris Brown at Pure inside Caesars Palace; B.O.B. at Luxor's LAX; Bruno Mars at The Bank, John Legend follows his show at Pearl Theater with an after party at Moon and Iyaz at Revolution Lounge inside The Mirage.
LMFAO brings some party rock to Haze; Kaskade spins at Marquee at the Cosmopolitan; Steve Angello is on the turntables at XS; Robbie Rivera is at Vanity; Samantha Ronson is at LAVO at The Palazzo and Paul Oakenfold rings in the new year at Rain.
