LAS VEGAS, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With the recent announcement of its exclusive DJs, the highly anticipated Hakkasan Las Vegas, opening in April at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, will welcome additional celebrated artists to its all-star roster of musicians. This illustrious collection of talent also will be performing at MGM Grand's iconic WET REPUBLIC Ultra Pool.
The dynamic line-up joining previously announced artists Tiesto, Calvin Harris, deadmau5 and Steve Aoki includes (in alphabetical order) Bambi, Bingo Players, Bob Sinclar, Dada Life, Danny Avila, Fergie, Hardwell, Laidback Luke, Michael Woods, NERVO, Quintino, R3HAB and Tommy Trash.
"We are pleased to welcome all of these talented musicians to Hakkasan Las Vegas," said Neil Moffitt, CEO of Angel Management Group. "The caliber of artists we have lined up is sure to create an unforgettable experience for our guests."
All artists have been encouraged to work in conjunction with the teams at Hakkasan and Angel Management Group to create unique concepts and themes for their individual events. Dutch superstar Hardwell talks excitedly about his 'Go Hardwell or Go Home' project created specifically for Hakkasan Las Vegas by stating, "As an artist you are always looking for something that is refreshing. A game changer and when I read about Hakkasan it was exactly what I was searching for." His full interview can be viewed here.
Beginning today, Hakkasan Las Vegas will have a striking visual presence on the streets of Miami timed in conjunction with Winter Music Conference (WMC) and Ultra Music Festival. A fleet of 150 branded taxicabs will feature one of Hakkasan's seventeen artists along with a Hakkasan hash tag to gear up for the opening of the venue.
From March 18 –24, attendees of WMC and Ultra Music Festival are invited to participate in the WMC "Taxi Hunt." The goal is to take five pictures with five different Hakkasan branded taxi cabs and post the pictures to Hakkasan Las Vegas' Twitter, utilizing the hash tag #HakkasanWMC and tagging @HakkasanLV. Each cab submission will put the participant in the running for a Las Vegas prize package consisting of flights for two to the grand opening weekend, a two-night, three-day stay at MGM Grand, dinner for two at Hakkasan Restaurant and coveted VIP entry to Hakkasan nightclub. The more cabs that a participant tweets, the more chances they have to win.
Hakkasan Las Vegas, an innovative restaurant and nightclub concept, will offer guests a 360-degree curated experience combining fine dining and immersive nightlife, all within a thoughtfully designed five-level structure. A collaboration between the celebrated international dining group Hakkasan Ltd. and leading entertainment and nightlife company Angel Management Group, the venue is a dramatic extension of the brand – the restaurant's first venture into nightlife.
