As winter recedes and the warmth of spring promises a return soon to long summer days, all eyes are on Resorts World and the mammoth opening unfurling in the desert city of Las Vegas. The eagerly-anticipated mega-resort is making announcements weekly about food and entertainment partners that promise to make the Vegas resort singular in the world. This week, Zouk Group has announced plans to bring one of the world’s best DJs to a summer residency at Resorts World’s Zouk Nightclub and AYU Dayclub. The headliner is none other than Tijs Michiel Verwest – known by fans as Tiësto. 

Zouk Group Announces a Big Name

Zouk Group’s announcement today is sure to spark even more excitement. GRAMMY-nominated, certified platinum, producer, international icon and Atlantic recording star Verwest brings his unique style and exceptional talent to the summer’s lineup. For the announcement, Zouk Group collaborated with the EDM superstar to create a video of the DJ exploring his new summer home as the music from his chart-topping hit “The Business” sets the stage.

Verwest said of the opportunity; “Las Vegas is like home to me and I can’t wait to feel the energy as we all make our triumphant return to this electric city!”

“Our relationship with Tiësto dates back to the early stages of his career, and the team at Zouk Group is thrilled to continue our support of him with this incredible partnership,” said Andrew Li, Chief Executive Officer of Zouk Group. “Tiësto is synonymous with Vegas and nightlife culture and we couldn’t be more excited to provide him with a brand-new stage to get back to business.”

Tiësto’s signature style will pair perfectly with Zouk Nightclub’s futuristic feel. The high-tech club boasts a 3D mapping program to allow guests to choose their booking options, digital guest lists, and a fully-articulated ceiling with a feature known as The Mothership. Per the press release; “The Mothership incorporates a complete lighting system that offers different types of dynamic solutions, both motorized and static creating otherworldly lighting effects throughout the club that can provide a different back drop every night.”

Tiësto is a Recipe for Success

Although Resorts World’s lineup doesn’t lack for talent, including superstars like Zedd and J Balvin, there’s something extra special about the Tiësto residency. The enigmatic talent was born in Breda, North Brabant, Netherlands on January 17, 1969. Interested in music from a young age, Verwest started focusing on DJing around the age of 14. By 1994, Verwest was releasing content for Noculan Records, under the aliases Da Joker and DJ Limited.

After some time, Verwest donned the title DJ Tiësto, a twist on a childhood nickname, eventually dropping “DJ” from the title. Considered by many to be the Godfather of EDM, Tiësto is inarguably one of the best DJs of all time. Verwest owns his own label, Musical Freedom.

The Zouk Group press release shares proudly on their star headliner; “From his underground dance floor bangers to his high-profile Las Vegas residency and crossover success, Tiësto created the blueprint that defines what it means to be a success in today’s dance music world. In Tiësto’s true fashion, he continues expand across genres, always evolving his craft. With over 36 million albums sold, eight billion cumulative streams, and a social platform with an audience exceeding 30 million fans spanning the globe, he continues to revolutionize the dance music landscape.

Tiësto’s latest single—and first release since signing with Atlantic Records—”The Business” has dominated airplay and charts worldwide since its September release, garnering over 529 Million Worldwide Streams to date. It has also held a steady position on Apple & Spotify’s ‘Today’s Top Hits’ & ‘Today’s Hits’ playlists. ‘The Business’ is certified Platinum in 12 counties and gold in 10 countries (including the US) and has held a place on the Top 25 official singles chart in 12 countries as well as Top 50 on Spotify in 33 countries.”
