Calvin Harris

Omnia Nightclub (Caesars Palace, 8 p.m., $150–$225)

What to Expect: Chart-topping poppy EDM hit after chart-topping poppy EDM hit—and you’ll love every minute of it.
What to Hope For: After his breakup with the planet’s biggest pop star, a T-Swift DJ booth bombing. That awk-fest would produce some Facebook photo gold—not to mention TMZ’s lead story on New Year’s Day.
Spin This: “My Way”—here’s hoping Harris drops the 2016 track at Omnia with live vocals.

DJ Khaled

Tao Nightclub (The Venetian, 9 p.m., $50–$129)

What to Expect: A marathon of hip-hop hits featuring the producer’s laundry list of top-notch collaborators, possibly including a couple with live vocals from French Montana, who also headlines Tao’s NYE bash.
What to Hope For: Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown crashing the party to perform “Do You Mind.”
Spin This: “All I Do Is Win”—that banger is badass, and you know everybody’s hands are going up at The Venetian Saturday night. Why? Because all Khaled does is win, win, win …

Major Lazer

XS Nightclub (Encore, 9 p.m., $52–$236)

What to Expect: The broad spectrum of electronic dance music (trap, electro-house, moombahton) the trio is now known for.
What to Hope For: Something that will top the 2016 Life Is Beautiful headliner’s electrifying festival-closing set. Maybe some pyro?
Spin This: “Cold Water”—er, no. Get pumped with “Light It Up.”

DJ Chuckie

Intrigue Nightclub (Wynn, 9 p.m., $39–$64)

What to Expect: Traphall. That’s right, the Dirty Dutch producer coined a genre, blending trap with dancehall—and it’s pretty fucking cool.
What to Hope For: Um, lots of traphall. We told you it was fucking cool.
Spin This: “Wicked”—get a taste of Chuckie’s sonic innovation.

DJ Snake

Surrender Nightclub (Encore, 9 p.m., $65–$95)

What to Expect: Trap-, bounce- and crunk-infused EDM.
What to Hope For: A new, soon-to-be-heard-everywhere hit. DJ Snake’s about due for another one …
Spin This: “Turn Down for What”—like we’d recommend anything else to get you ready for some marathon partying.

Steve Aoki

Jewel Nightclub (Aria, 9 p.m., $75–$125)

What to Expect: High-energy EDM, Champagne showers, cakes to the face and probably some crowd-surfing from the headlining artist—likely with pool floats involved.
What to Hope For: See above.
Spin This: “Delirious”—the bumpin’ banger will amp you up better than five vodka Red Bulls.

Lil Jon

1 OAK (The Mirage, 9 p.m., $50–$75)

What to Expect: Crunk. Lots and LOTS of crunk. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
What to Hope For: As many “WHAT?!”s and “OKAY!”s as possible during a NYE club set.
Spin This: “Turn Down for What”—because it’s fucking New Year’s Eve.
