Things to do in May in Las Vegas

Dance All Night at EDC

Please note: The Electric Daisy Carnival was postponed (yet again) from May 21-23, 2021 to October 22-24, 2021. 

The biggest electronic dance music festival in the country welcomes about 140,000 people each night over a three-day weekend at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.The Electric Daisy Carnival operates from dusk to dawn. There are eight stages with DJs performing throughout the evening. The KineticFIELD serves as the main stage, taking up about half of the Speedway and hosting the biggest EDM stars. Roam the festival grounds, and you’ll see carnival rides, parades, and a neon-colored spectacle that will make you feel like you’re on a totally different planet.

Visit a Strip Club in Las Vegas

On May 1, Nevada hands over control of crowd restrictions to individual counties. Here in Las Vegas, Clark County has promised to reopen nightclubs, pool parties, and strip clubs at 50-percent capacity. Buffets will return with conditions in place as well. The move anticipates a full Nevada reopening on June 1.

Celebrate May Holidays in Las Vegas

Memorial Day traditionally marks the start of summer and is one of the biggest weekends of the year in Las Vegas. With vaccines taking hold, Memorial Day Weekend, which runs May 29-31, will likely be much busier (and safer) than in 2020. Remain up to date with club schedules & ticket prices.

If there’s little action on the Strip, you may prefer the beaches, boating, and jet skis of Lake Mead and Lake Las Vegas, each just minutes outside the metropolitan area. Lake Havasu in Arizona and Lake Powell, which borders Arizona and Utah, are both worth a road trip.

Enjoy deals and discounts on Mexican food and Margaritas at top bars and restaurants for Cinco de Mayo (May 5). 

Take a Dive into a Pool Party in Las Vegas

Much like last year, pool parties are operating as lounges, but expect the party vibe to pick up as restrictions are loosened.  The best way to enjoy DJs, drinks, and other fun by the water is with a cabana or daybed, which typically requires a minimum spend on food and drinks. Don’t be surprised to see some attractive discounts offered. Request a cabana or daybed through Lavish Vegas to learn about comps and special deals.

More fun things to do in May…

Enjoy the best bottle service, and VIP package deals at top nightclubs: Nightclubs will return to dominate the nightlife scene in May. Partiers looking to skip the lines should reserve a VIP table, but booking with a club directly is never the best option. Lavish Vegas works with clubs to fill their premium seats at a lower price and is always the best plan for those who desire elite service without wasting money. 

If your group isn’t set on a specific DJ and wants a great bottle deal, Lavish Vegas can point you in the direction of a stylish lounge or a less hectic nightclub. You won’t wait in line, and we may even comp you a bottle. To get VIP table service and book a great bottle deal, complete this form.
