Hakkasan Group announced in October that it was going to hold a massive benefit concert for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting a week prior. Tiësto, Zedd, Kaskade, Steve Aoki, and Lil Jon were among the names that would show up, but the event ended up being bigger than anyone could have dreamed.
The Benefit Concert at OMNIA Nightclub was held last night inside Caesars Palace. Throughout the night, attendees were able to witness sets from Tiësto, Zedd, Kaskade, Steve Aoki, Party Favor, Cash Cash, NGHTMRE, and more in the main room, while renowned SKAM Artists Lil Jon, FAED, Turbulence, Crooked, NEVA and OB One took over Heart of OMNIA as Bojo from Vegas’ Q 100.5, kept the energy going throughout the night. Adding to the excitement, UFC’s official Octagon announcer Bruce Buffer participated throughout the night as he helped hype up the packed room and welcomed artists to the stage.
However, not to be outshone in her city, Céline Dion joined Steve Aoki as a huge guest on stage, and performed a special rendition of her classic song “My Heart Will Go On” alongside him. Following the incredible rendition, Aoki joined Dion atop of the DJ booth as they both showed off some of their best dance moves, while the packed nightspot collectively basked in the amazing moment. And you really haven’t been to Vegas unless you’ve seen Steve Aoki dancing with Céline Dion, have you?
The Benefit Concert went on into the early hours of the morning as the artists played back-to-back sets, making for a tremendously remarkable affair. With the goal of bringing the community together, and to further cement Vegas as the entertainment capital of the world, Hakkasan Group raised over $1,000,000 through donations, ticket sales, and all revenue earned throughout the night, all of which is being donated to the Las Vegas Victims Fund, via the Direct Impact Fund.
In addition to the event, Hakkasan Group hosted a private dinner at Searsucker inside Caesars Palace for a number of the city’s first responders. In honor of all their hard work and dedication to the community, the evening acted as a thank you and allowed them to enjoy a night out in true Vegas fashion.

Nice and easy summer vibes going on here.
She is a Ukrainian girl and she is proud of it. The DJ touring most in all history of her country , born to a small family in a tiny village. A talented girl without any musical education – Nastia. Her career started unexpectedly in 2005 in the city called Donetsk.
Since 2006 Nastia gained experience as a promoter, stage manager and radio show host. But her main occupation is DJing.
For five consecutive years Nastia worked on projects of Kazantip (2006-2011). Since 2006 she has her weekly radio show at the infamous and most popular radio stations of Europe – KISS FM Ukraine. Now its her whole project, which includes a radio show, conceptual parties and a vinyl label, which started this year – all combined under influential name ‘Propaganda’.
Nastia is one of very fe..
I was born in a small village in the east of Ukraine to a normal family. Nobody was a musician in my family and there was no opportunity to obtain musical education. But I loved to dance and danced well. Through all my school years I was involved in social activities, I took part in school activities and was very active and enthusiastic.
I have two older sisters, who lived in the near by city – Donetsk. I visited them every two weeks and this is where my first visit to nightclubs happened. This is where I realized what I wanted and everything came into focus…
I finished school in my dear little village and then went on to the university of Donetsk to the Marketing faculty.
I immediately found my first job as a dancer in the best club of the city. After some time, this was not enough anymore, and I wanted to move forward, so I began to spin. That was 2005….
In 2006 was the first time I came to Kazantip. Since then many things have changed. I changed.
I worked in Kazantip since 2006 until 2011, playing in different parties, managing the studio of the infamous KISS FM radio station, where I also have my own radioshow. Now this weekly radioshow of mine is called ‘Propaganda’, which is also the name for my new label, launched recently in 2013.
Since 2009 I have been touring frequently. The last three years I have had no free weekends. I have played in many cities throughout Europe and further abroad to Japan, North Africa, South America, Mauritius. In Russia and Ukraine I am performing less now.
For a short time I also worked as a promoter, organizing my own parties. Later on I just decided to work on one event once a year together with the team Feeleed from Odessa. This event, which we make together is my birthday party, where my friends and close artists gather from all over the world.
I have never been a resident of any club, but recently this changed; I simply could not resist the offer from Arma17 and since 2010 I am their resident and this is a big honor for me.
Arma17 is something unique. I can not even a club, it’s just so much more. It’s much more important, more interesting and complete. It’s one of a kind in the whole world and it’s my second home. Soon after I also joined the Feeleed family, they became my family in Ukraine.
I am not a producer. I am a true DJ. I am one of a few, who builds their music career through the performance of DJ’ing. I spend time in the studio over the last 2 years, but for now there is still not enough to present for your musical pleasure. Although producing doesn’t really interest me – I know that my best skill is at mixing records.
In 2011 the first release was made of mine and Sasha’s (Alexander Pavlenko / Sunchase) collaboration named ‘He & She’ on the label Musik Gewinnt Freunde. Until today it’s our only release, because we are both busy at the moment. There is little time left for studio for me, so I use this time to producer under the name ‘Nastia’.
Recently I was part of the Bullitt Agency. We worked together just one year. But circumstances forced this to end and my decision was to continue on my own, how I always worked before.
I love my hobby, which transformed into my profession and my way of life during recent years. My aim is to see as many people as possible on the dancefloor and to dance with them, leading the mood with what unites us all – music. I am what I do.

Melbourne is currently teeming with some of the most promising electronic dance music producers to hit the scene in years. At only 18 years of age, Tyron Hapi is making his mark as one of the most promising ‘up-and-coming’ producers Australia has to offer. Tyron’s growing discography of originals, remixes and collaborations are being released on some of the world’s best known labels including: SPINNIN’, Universal, Dim Mak, Bourne Recordings and Armada Records (just to name a few), through his Alias – AC3.
A self-taught pianist and natural musical talent like Tyron’s, doesn’t come around often. In 2011 he was earmarked as someone with an exceptional musical ability when he was accepted into the highly respected ‘Victorian College of the Arts’ Secondary School on a Drumming Scholarship. There Tyron learned in detail about music theory, which gave him the platform to focus his skills into a more professional sounding product and prepare him for what lay ahead. He’s paved a pathway that has lead him to collaborate with some of Australia’s best known artists such as: Will Sparks, Timmy Trumpet and Joel Fletcher. Tyron has landed himself gigs around the country and across New Zealand, the UK and Europe. Just one listen to Tyron’s productions and it is evident that all his hard work and study have held him in good stead, together with the technical proficiency in his productions, that belies his young age.
Producing since the young age of 14, Tyron has honed his skills to display a trademark sound which fuses soothing progressive house breakdowns with melodic and catchy drops. There is no doubt Tyron Hapi is part of a new school of producer to emerge of late; a new breed that has been brought up on a musical diet of electronic music and club culture. There is little doubt he will be a future leader in the next phase of the scene’s evolution. The world is about to be hit with the pure talent that is Tyron Hapi – get on board now as he is going places and we are all invited for the ride.
