Your Halloween Weekend 2015 Party Guide

halloween_party_guide_by_cierra_pedro_WEBIsn’t Halloween awesome? For one night, we’re able to dress in ridiculous outfits and party our collective asses off. But why restrict it to a day, when there’s a full weekend of fun to be had? Here’s your itinerary. Time to break out the costumes—it’s about to get spooky.

Friday, Oct. 30

Your monster of a weekend begins with Dash Berlin at Marquee. His last name gives the impression that he might be from Germany, but he’s actually Dutch. The trance veteran gave thousands of fans in Chile and Peru doses of his thumpin’, high-energy sound earlier this month, so he’s bound to do the same. Expect to hear all the hits from his prolific discography including “Waiting” and “Here Tonight.” (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m.,

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Afrojack said that his recipe for success is to “Trust your instinct and follow your balls.” We think that sounds a little too forward, but it’s obviously done him well; he’s been spinning at local clubs since he turned 14, has collaborated with such pop stars as Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj and has appeared on Forbes’ list of highest-paid DJs. Trust your instinct and see him spin at Omnia. (In Caesars Palace, 10:30 p.m.,

Daddy Kat celebrates the weekend at Tao for TAOlloween. His name probably doesn’t ring a bell, but we’re sure the name Wiz Khalifa does. The Philly rapper trades his microphone for turntables, but just for tonight. Given his background, we’re sure he’ll hop on the mic to perform a song or two. (In the Venetian, 10 p.m.,

Saturday, Oct. 31

Happy Halloween! To quote singer PARTYNEXTDOOR, “you got options.” Some people prefer eerie, hard-hitting guitar riffs over bumpin’ tunes created on MacBooks. If you fall under this category, hit House of Blues for a performance by Ghost. The Swedish, costume-donning heavy metal band brings the noise. To put things into perspective: The singer calls himself Papa Emeritus III and sports an outfit that looks like a Satanic pope. Join the cult or feel his wrath. (In Mandalay Bay, 8 p.m.,

Ghostbar hosts Night of the Killer Costumes, a costume contest with a cool cash prize. One lucky winner will leave with $5,000. DJs Exodus and Mark Stylz provide the tunes. (In the Palms, 1 p.m.,

Lil’ Wayne is enduring a legal hell at the moment, with Tidal and Cash Money holding his new material ransom. We’re not sure how it’s going to end, or if we can expect to hear new tunes soon, but we do know he’s bringing the party to Life for Halloweezy.  Let’s amend one of his taglines: “It’s Weezy F. Baby, and the ‘F’ is for ‘frightful!’” (In SLS, 10:30 p.m.,

If you just can’t stay away from the untz, Hardwell and Kill the Buzz man the decks at Hakkasan. The former is a world-famous DJ; the latter is a fresh face in the electro house world. Catch both, or check out DJ Ruckus in the Ling Ling Club. Remember those aforementioned options? (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m.,

Sunday, Nov. 1

Atlanta rapper and singer Future closes out the festive weekend at Drai’s. The autotune crooner is riding off the wave of success with three highly lauded mixtapes, a No. 1 solo album and a No. 1 collaborative album with Drake. And that’s just in the past 11 months. These accolades come after two chart-topping albums and countless features. Give “Future Hendrix” a high five for being prolific, and turn up to trap anthems such as “March Madness” “Karate Chop” and “Blow A Bag.” Freebandz! (In the Cromwell, 10:30 p.m.,

If the wubs are in your wheelhouse, head to XS for a set by DJ, singer and producer Skrillex. Earlier this month, he visited India to play a few shows and gather inspiration for new material. Given the holiday, you might just get a first listen. (In Encore, 10 p.m.,
