Superstar music producer Steve Angello will begin an exclusive residency at Caesars Palace’s Omnia nightclub in Las Vegas this August, Hakkasan Group announced on Thursday.
Hot off his current single “Children of the Wild” and a summer full of major European festival dates, the 32-year-old veteran Swede will make his first appearance on Aug. 4.
In addition to producing anthems as part of Swedish House Mafia, Angello has been releasing singles in anticipation of his first solo album. He now joins a stable of exclusive residents in the Hakkasan Group that includes Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Nervo and Alesso.
Omnia, a massive, 4,400-patron nightlife destination, cost Hakkasan Group $100 million to convert from the preexisting Pure nightclub.
“I was really blown away when I first saw the venue,” Angello said in a statement. “As much as it’s a spectacle, I felt the intimacy in the room.”
Scooter Braun (whose other clients include Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande) is now managing the producer. Of note, fellow Braun client Martin Garrix, the 19-year-old wunderkind behind “Animals” who is not even old enough to drink at the clubs he plays, is also on an exclusive residency playing the 75,000-square-foot Omnia and sister spot Wet Republic.
The Escape Artist
Angello had been slated to complete a two-year residency through 2016 at “Life,” the club inside the new SLS Las Vegas on the north end of the strip.
At the time of the deal last November, Angello told AXS “SLS and Life have the perfect venue with the most important aspects of a real club experience — the sound and visuals. It’s important to cater to the music we are playing and therefore they won!”
That “win” will be coming off the books. SBE, owner/operators of the SLS did not immediately respond to TheWrap‘s request for comment.
Restlessness and “getting out” has been a theme for Angello.
Swedish House Mafia, the super group he founded with Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso, broke up at the peak of its success in 2013. (The other two now perform and tour together as a duo.) Then, last October, Angello bought himself out of his Columbia Records deal and will be releasing his first post-SHM solo album “Wild Youth” on his own Size Records.
The first tranche of performances at Omnia calls for five dates through September:
- Tuesday, Aug. 4
- Sunday, Aug. 16
- Friday, Aug. 21
- Tuesday, Aug. 25
- Saturday, Sept. 12
