DJ Mag delivers the round up of the Miller SoundClash 2015 Grand Finale, 15 DJs from around the world going head to head to see who will reign supreme, all hosted in the magnificent setting of the Marquee Day Club Las Vegas.
Stoke-On-Trent's Ashley Wallbridge has gone from a trance newbie to one of the hottest names in big room dance in a matter of years. Now, with a residency at Marquee in Las Vegas, his popularity has entered a whole new sphere.
For over three months, hopeful DJs from across the planet have been duelling online for the chance to represent their country at the Miller SoundClash live final at Marquee Las Vegas. And after the long months of promotion, practise and preparation, the day has finally arrived. Ten DJs have travelled to Vegas and despite a rather heavy warm up night with Tiesto at Hakkasan the night before the show, the crew are fresh faced and ready to do battle.
As we gear up for the Top 100 DJs Party at Marquee Las Vegas on August 23rd, which will feature some very special Top 100 DJs guests alongside the Miller SoundClash winner - we wanted to shine a light on the big tracks that have had Sin City swinging over the last couple of months.
The EDM tidal wave that continues to flow over North America has not only triggered a surge in the popularity of dance music worldwide, but has also changed the entire EDM landscape - from music, artists through to the festivals and of course, clubs!
Accordingly we have seen a huge rise in North American venues, propelled into the higher echelons of the Top 100 Clubs poll - this year powered by Miller Genuine Draft.

There is nothing quite like dancing in the open air. Whether you are soaked in glorious sunshine or partying beneath the stars, everything is more fun in the great outdoors! Historically, Ibiza has been the ultimate location in which to enjoy such activities but recent legislation has restricted the al fresco opportunities in the Balearics. Fortunately there are other places where the only roof is the sky above your head.
Three am is a time when most cities around the world are quiet, dark and fast asleep, but, here, on the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, there are no real discernible changes from prime-time, only hours before dawn. Inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the casino floor is still abuzz with gamblers, restaurants are still serving hungry patrons and tourists are drunkenly reminiscing about the adventures of their night.
