Things to do in May in Las Vegas

Dance All Night at EDC

After playing a recent makeup date in October, the Electric Daisy Carnival is back again, reclaiming its usual spot as a major spring event on May 20-22. 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.

Take a Dive into a Pool Party in Las Vegas

Pool parties are back in Las Vegas, operating in full capacity for the first time in years. 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 beverages. 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.

See a Concert in Las Vegas

Doobie Brothers will perform at Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood during their mini-residency in Las Vegas. The Theatre at Resorts World will enjoy a busy month with Michael Buble, Carrie Underwood and Katy Perry on rotating dates. Meanwhile, Silk Sonic (the duo of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak) has a full schedule of 12 dates at Dolby Live inside the Park MGM.

Dance to Soul and R&B in Las Vegas

The Lovers and Friends Festival comes to the Las Vegas Festival Grounds on May 14, featuring a deep lineup of rap, soul and R&B acts with a retro flavor. Headliners include Lauryn Hill, Usher, TLC, Nelly and more.

See a Comedy Show in Las Vegas

Don’t miss Chris Rock at Caesars Palace. The comedian plays a special engagement at the Colosseum on May 6-7. The Aces of Comedy series at The Mirage has a star-studded lineup, hosting Wayne Brady May 7-8, Tim Dillon May 14-15, Bill Maher May 20-21 and Gabriel Iglesias May 27-30. Jim Gaffigan brings his Fun Tour to the Encore Theater at Wynn.

Celebrate May Holidays in Las Vegas

Memorial Day traditionally marks the start of summer and is one of the year’s biggest weekends in Las Vegas. With mask mandates dropped, Memorial Day Weekend, which runs May 24-27, will likely be much busier (and safer) than the past couple of years. Remain up to date with club schedules & ticket prices.

If the Strip is too crowded, 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). 

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. Complete this form to get VIP table service and book an excellent bottle deal.
