LAS VEGAS (March 2, 2017) – Wynn Nightlife announces an exclusive two-year residency with famed Norwegian musician and producer, Kygo, who begins his first-ever residency at the kick-off of NightSwim, the resort’s nighttime pool party season, on April 30th at XS Nightclub.

“I am honored to be the newest Wynn Nightlife resident and add to the incredible events they produce,” said Kygo. “I’ve been excited to make this announcement and look forward to some very special shows!”
In an announcement video inspired by his water-themed residency, Kygo was joined by the world-class performers of Wynn Las Vegas’ aquatic spectacular, Le Rêve – The Dream, for an unprecedented artistic collaboration between a nightlife venue and a production show. Soaring above the aqua theatre’s 1.1 million gallon pool, the classically-trained piano prodigy plays a medley of original songs as he descends through storms of rain, fire and snow, punctuated by nine synchronized swimmers performing a custom choreographed underwater routine around him.

Kygo’s ascent on the EDM scene has been explosive. In 2016, he was the first artist to reach 1 billion streams on Spotify, and his first album,
Cloud Nine, debuted at #1 on the iTunes Dance Albums chart and Nielsen Soundscan’s Electronic Albums chart selling over two million units worldwide. In November, the release of a remix of The Weeknd and Daft Punk’s “Starboy” became one of the year’s biggest hits. Kygo is off to an enviable start in 2017 with the February release of “It Ain’t Me” with Selena Gomez, and “Cruise” (feat. Andrew Jackson) which appears on the Fifty Shades Darker official soundtrack.
“Kygo’s sound is completely unique to dance music and perfectly complements our pool party vibe,” said Alex Cordova, Wynn Nightlife Executive Vice President and Managing Partner. “With a strong presence here during May and June, Kygo will be the dominant force on the Strip during prime pool party months.”
