Partying in Vegas vs. The 6ix: What to Know

By | Only In Vegas | No Comments

We may be running a festival in Las Vegas, but most of our team behind this crazy festival is, in fact, from Canada! Every year we fly down our top VIP hosts, managers and production staff for Exodus weekend – talk about work-life balance ;)

How long have you been a VIP Host in Toronto?
Over 5 years as a VIP host but I’ve been working longer in the industry as security.

Get to Know Exodus’ Resident DJ Joyia

By | Music, Uncategorized | No Comments

I’m Joyia, a.k.a. Exodus’ resident DJ.

It’s a pretty cool gig if I do say so myself. I always try to make sure that I find cool, new music to get you guys in the Exodus spirit. I mean, it’s an awesome festival, so it needs to be accompanied by awesome music.

I learned how to DJ shortly after going to my first electronic show. I was 16, and had just seen Swedish House Mafia – I know, I miss them too. But can you imagine that? Swedish House Mafia was probably the best DJ group to ever exist (reunion please), and I had just seen them sell out the Rogers Centre in Toronto. In case you’re not from Toronto, let me paint a bit of a picture for you.

The Rogers Centre can hold almost 54,000 people!

Swedish House Mafia sold out both nights. For my first electronic show, it wasn’t too shabby.

Vegas, the city of extremes

By | Events, Featured | No Comments

You’ve bet (and lost) your shirt at the roulette table. You’ve eaten yourself into a coma at one of the legendary buffets. You’ve driven down the Strip blinking in awe at the shimmering neon. So now what? To find Vegas experiences outside the casinos but still guaranteed to get the pulse racing, our Destination Editor Alexander Howard went beyond the call of duty and reports back from the front line.

City of extremes: getting behind the wheel

I am not, it seems, a very good race car driver. At least not in the simulator. Robbie, my instructor, stands with his elbow resting on the roll-cage around me, waiting for me to find the right spot on the digitized track to make a turn. ‘You’re missing the apex’, he says, which is true, because at this point I’m off the track and driving over the pixelated gravel. The racing simulator is like something out of a video game arcade, and I’ve missed the apex nearly every time. ‘You’re braking too soon’, Robbie says with a hint of frustration.

Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Diplo

By | Music, Uncategorized | No Comments

His name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, but you might know him a little better as Diplo.

He’s a festival headliner, successful producer for many of music’s biggest names, the owner of a successful record label and a dad to two adorable boys all at the same time.

Born in Tulepo, Mississippi, Pentz grew up in South Florida and spent his days at his dad’s bait shop. He originally wanted to become a palaeontologist, but ended up going to school to study film. He went to a few Florida colleges, and then ended up going to Japan for a bit for a change of scenery. From there, he sent a demo to Will Ashton of Big Dada Records, a UK-based hip hop label. The demo ended up getting him signed to the label, and then he moved back to Philadelphia where he completed his undergraduate degree.

Vintage Las Vegas: Your Guide To Sin City’s Sordid History

By | Events, Food for thought | No Comments

Look away for too long and Vegas changes. The Vegas of Sinatra and Elvis and mobsters and showgirls has been replaced by Cirque shows and Britney Spears and musical fountains.  The crooners may be gone but the spirit lives on – here are the best places to channel it.

Vintage Las Vegas

Decades before garish LED screens presided over the Strip, handcrafted neon signs reigned as Vegas’ original iconic art form. While much of this neon art has been dismantled (and, unfortunately, trashed) you can view over 150 lovingly restored artifacts at the Neon Museum. A tour of the museum’s ‘Boneyard,’ full of retro signs dating back as far as 1930, is one of Vegas’ most fascinating strolls.
