Currently ranked as the 4th biggest DJ in the world, landing the mouse head donning DJ is an incredible victory for Wynn/Encore, reaffirming its strong commitment to nightlife. With his innovative compositions and eclectic stage presence (re: his signature light-up mouse heads), Deadmau5 is the perfect fit for Vegas.
The partnership is a sign of the times, too, with electronic music rapidly gaining popularity in the United States. The move matches one made by Marquee, another hotspot at Cosmopolitan, who picked up Swedish electronic phenom Avicii last summer.
