Wynn Nightlife loves to surprise its devoted fans. Working through social media, they dropped a sparkling gem. Marshmello is making his triumphant return to Las Vegas, coming home to Wynn and its clubs XS and Encore Beach Club. A video shared on social media welcomed to the DJ back after a two-year hiatus from playing the Vegas scene.
Marshmello Returns to Wynn
The messages are clear: “I’m home,” from the artist; and “welcome home” from the resorts team. But whatever angle you saw it from first, it’s clear that Marshmello and Wynn are thrilled to be together again.
The video starts with flashes of an elevator, then Marshmello himself in his signature headgear and white suit walking down a long performer’s promenade, his stroll interspersed with flashes of past performances and screaming fans. Marshmello then opens the roof access door and steps out to a Las Vegas sunset, glowing in shades of brilliant pink and amber. As Marshmello strides across the roof, the Vegas skyline behind him, the sky darkens to night. Marshmello gazes out across the city, and his signature cross-eyed grinning face appears in lights on the side of Encore Wynn, and the scene zooms in to show the DJ seated on the very edge of the building’s roof, a panoply of fireworks casting a dramatic backdrop.
The camera then takes you on a stomach-churning loop back and away from Marshmello’s precarious perch and zooms out to show the Wynn, “I’m Home” lit across its surface. “Welcome home, Marshmello,” the video concludes.

The Palms and a Two-Year Vegas Freeze
Marshmello’s return to the Wynn is the end of a two-year saga. In 2018, Marshmello was at the center of a controversy that swirled in Vegas, centered on a contract he signed with the Palms. That residency deal for DJ Marshmello was worth $60 million, the biggest in Vegas history. KAOS nightclub only lasted a few months and ultimately Marshmello’s contract was canceled reportedly for around $26 million. Marshmello’s return to Vegas picks up almost right where he left off after a 2016-2018 residency at Wynn.
But Marshmello has not been idle. Although like most performers, 2020 was all but a pause in his career, the EDM superstar recently announced a single collab with Carnage. He also played the opening ceremony for UEFA on May 29 alongside Selena Gomez and Khalid.
Wynn’s Lineup for 2021 is Stellar
Marshmello is the Wynn’s latest big announcement. The resort and entertainment venues have always captured the heart of Vegas’ nightlife and 2021’s lineup shows that they’re just as tuned in and at the top of their game as ever, 2020 be damned.
In May, Wynn announced a Lionel Richie residency of 10 performances in November. A lineup of top-class comedians will also be taking the stage at Wynn, including Top Papa, Jo Koy, Jim Gaffigan, Nate Bargatze, Demetri Martin and Sebastian Maniscalco.
And of course you can’t talk about Wynn without talking about star resident DJ, Diplo. Diplo is a Wynn regular, drawing huge crowds and wild acclaim for his unique style and skill running the deck.
With Marshmello returning to Wynn and the amazing lineup of comedy and music set to take the stage, they’ve got their gloves on and are ready to compete with the other big names such as Resorts World and Virgin Hotels who have come to town this year. No matter the resort, it’s going to be an incredible year for the Entertainment Capital of the World.
