WHAT: On Thursday, May 16, Hakkasan Nightclub in Las Vegas kicked off Electric Daisy Carnival week with a performance by GRAMMY Award-winning artist, Tiësto. The world-renowned nightlife destination celebrated the unveiling of The Hakkasan Grid – a multi-million dollar, one-of-a-kind ceiling art installation. Guests danced under the 30-foot, 12,000-pound Hakkasan Grid as it created infinite shapes from flowers, cones, waves and more offering a groundbreaking and immersive sensory experience.
The Hakkasan Grid is the largest kinetic light installation in the U.S. and was custom-built specifically for the nightclub’s ceiling. It is the only ceiling of its kind that is pixel-mappable and capable of color mixing, allowing fully-customized images and patterns to flow between triangles seamlessly.
WHERE: Hakkasan Nightclub at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino
WHEN: The Tiësto/Hakkasan Grid unveiling took place May 16. Hakkasan Nightclub’s EDC Week schedule is as follows:
· May 17: Steve Aoki
· May 18: Calvin Harris
WHY: The Hakkasan Grid combines avant-garde design with state-of-the-art technology to reinvent the nightlife experience in Las Vegas and beyond. It can change colors and shapes in perfect synchronization with the nightclub’s music to create a more immersive experience at the internationally recognized nightclub. Because EDC is the largest dance music festival on the West Coast, there’s no better time to launch The Hakkasan Grid.
