Deadmau5 Drops Fee To Play Unannounced Show In Vegas

Deadmau5 Drops Fee To Play Unannounced Show In Vegas

In a time where DJs are forever being criticized for their increasing fees, and clubs are on the receiving end of disgruntled clubbers annoyed at having to pay over the top ticket prices, it's nice to hear that there are some surprises in store for all the dedicated clubbers out there.

On Friday night, deadmau5 was in Las Vegas for a private event. During this time he had dinner with good friend and XS owner, Jesse Waits where it's said deadmau5 joked that Waits should book him to play at XS later on that night. The conversation lead to Waits telling Mau5 that he couldn't pay him, so he (deadmau5) offered to do the gig for free. The two then left dinner and went to the club where deadmau5 started DJing at 11:30 for a two-hour opening slot for Wolfgang Gartner, and gave the unsuspecting XS crowd a night to remember.

So here's my question about all of this. What happened to deadmau5 and his "residency" at Hakkasan? Have the head honchos over at The Wynn snapped him up for 2014? They've already signed Marquee resident DJ, Kaskade as their winter residency so why stop there when they can lure all their other past residents back.

It seems like there may be some changes happening in the Vegas clubbing circuit and which DJs are playing where. 2014 could get very interesting in Sin City.

Watch this space...
