Insomniac and Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Present “WET WONDERLAND”

As the 2012 pool season quickly approaches, Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and Insomniac – the producers of the Electric Daisy Carnival, Las Vegas– are thrilled to announce an exciting new weekly event, “WET WONDERLAND.” This incredible daytime party launches April 29 with Kaskade and will take place every Sunday poolside at Marquee Dayclub, featuring world-class artists and performers, and cutting-edge production.

Insomniac’s history as a pioneering producer of the world’s most prominent and innovative electronic dance music events combined with Marquee’s history leading the electronic dance music charge in Las Vegas nightclubs and commitment to providing fans with the ultimate clubbing destination guarantees that Wet Wonderland will be a can’t-miss experience when it launches this April 29.

“Insomniac is an unrivaled event producer in the dance music world, and we could not think of a better collaborator to team up with to introduce what is sure to be an electrifying daytime party to close out each weekend,” said Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub partner Jason Strauss.

“The Dayclub experience is an incredible place to showcase what Marquee and Insomniac do best – together,” said Insomniac’s CEO, Pasquale Rotella. “Wet Wonderland will be a unique Dayclub event and we’re so excited to work with the Marquee family to make it happen.”

TAO Las Vegas Logo

TAO Nightclub presents
TAO Las Vegas 5 Year Anniversary
Memorial Day Weekend
Sunday, May 29, 2011

With Las Vegas now firmly established as an international hotspot for house music, TAO Las Vegas is going back to where it all started. On Sunday, May 29, TAO Nightclub presents the return of international superstar Erick Morillo for an epic 8 hour set to celebrate the fifth year anniversary of a legendary Memorial Day Weekend event that first put Vegas on the dance music map.

Erick Morillo has the unique ability to capture the energy of a room and hold it until the sun rises. TAO has been able to build on his energy over the past five years and we’ve created a holiday within a holiday every Memorial Day Weekend and this year will be no different,” said Jason Strauss, Partner, TAO Las Vegas.

In the last five years, Memorial Day Weekend at TAO Las Vegas with Erick Morillo has become a veritable institution, exploding from 1,000 to 7,000 people last year and drawing clubbers from all over the world. The famed Asian-inspired nightclub, complete with 20-foot Buddha statue and state-of-the-art audio system, is the perfect backdrop for this larger-than-life house music pioneer. Indeed, the revolutionary night of house music has served as a catalyst in making Vegas one of the biggest markets for house music in the world, and TAO is ready to continue the tradition.

Erick Morillo says, “My Vegas love affair all started with TAO and the Memorial day weekend party has become a summer kick-off institution. We really jump started the entire house music revolution here that is now exploding in Vegas today and it’s really special to come back to play again for their 5 year anniversary.”

Morillo is the owner of Subliminal Records and a platinum-selling artist whose hits include Reel 2 Real’s “I Like To Move It,” “Break Down The Doors” and “Live Your Life” (with Eddie Thoneick, featuring Shawnee Taylor). At the onset of 2011, he launched a celebrated monthly DJ residency at the newly minted dance music mecca Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. This summer he returns to Ibiza for his annual residency this year dubbed “Subliminal Invasion,” with a companion CD to be released in June, along with his latest single “Stronger” on Subliminal Records.
