If you’re looking to have some fun at the party of the year, Exodus Festival in Las Vegas is the place to be.
For a three-day weekend in May (May 17-20), Vegas will be the ultimate party scene with a couple afternoon pool parties and clubs that will see top DJs and musical acts.
Last year’s and 2011′s Exodus Festivals had appearances by Will.I.Am, Tiesto, Avicii, and LMFAO at some of Vegas’s best nightclubs and pools. Those years’ events were held at Pure Nightclub at Caesar’s Palace, Wet Republic, Tao, Haze Nightclub at Aria, and Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan.
Exodus Festival is organized and hosted by Uniq Lifestyle Entertainment Group, a concert and nightlife group out of Toronto, Canada. The company’s Canadian roots give fodder for those that describe Exodus Festival as a Canadian invasion of Vegas. From the looks of this festival and its youtube videos, it looks like the Canucks know how to have a good time in the Nevada heat.
It’s also no surprise that Exodus Festival takes place during one of Canada’s three-day holiday weekends. The Monday of May 20th (last day of the festival) is Canada’s Victoria Day, when Queen Victoria’s birthday is honored. The day also marks the beginning of the summer season in Canada and the weekend before is known as “Long Weekend.”
