America’s Best DJ: Tour to Wrap in Sin City
Las Vegas—After a week that didn’t see any road action—we were plenty busy with DJ Expo in Atlantic City, N.J.—America’s Best DJ Summer Tour Presented by Pioneer DJ & DJ Times resumes in our country’s great playland—Vegas, baby.
Indeed, we’ll work two Sin City events for a pair of America’s Best DJ nominees this weekend. On Saturday night, DJ Vice—one of America’s most versatile party jocks—will rock Tao Nightclub. Then, it’s a relatively early wakeup call on Sunday afternoon as longtime EDM faves Gabriel & Dresden weave their melodic magic at Marquee Dayclub. Late-night action and a pool party—what’s not to like?
As usual, DJ Times will be at both venues with dedicated America’s Best DJ voting tables, collecting ballots for the nominated DJs and giving voters chances to win plenty of prizes from Pioneer DJ and DJ Times. In addition to Pioneer DJ gear, ABDJ voters can win the grand prize—a trip for two back to Vegas on Oct. 7 for the America’s Best DJ Closing Party/Award Ceremony at Marquee Nightclub. One lucky fan and a friend can see America’s Best DJ 2012 receive The Golden Mixer and, of course, enjoy all the top-notch hospitality from Marquee, one of America’s great EDM venues.
On Aug. 10, the Friday before DJ Expo drew more than 6,200 jocks to the Trump Taj Mahal in AC, the ABDJ tour descended on two cities at extreme ends of the East Coast. Way down in Columbus, Ga., DJ Roonie G delivered plenty of video delights at his Mix Ultra Lounge to the Fountain City locals. Meanwhile, about 1,000 miles up I-95, Sleepy & Boo dropped a late-night set of proper house bangers at Cielo in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Different strokes for different folks, but big fun was had by all.
So, who will be voted America’s Best DJ? We’ll know the week of Sept. 4, so fans have less than two weeks to find out. Again, fans who vote for an America’s Best DJ nominee online or at an event, fans who Like us on Facebook, and fans who Follow us on Twitter all are automatically entered to win plenty of prizes.
