Tiesto and Hakkasan confirmed today that the DJ is onboard for a residency at the new AMG club, along with Wet Republic — and giving up Ibiza in the process.

“I’m going to dedicate my year to Las Vegas. Just Vegas, maybe a couple of festivals. I haven’t decided yet,” Tiësto said in an interview with Rolling Stone. “With the scene blowing up in America, Vegas is so much fun now,” he says. “It’s the right time to do it. I do everything on my gut feeling, and I felt like it’s gonna be awesome there. I’ve been to Ibiza for 10 years, and I love Ibiza, but I always look for something new and a new challenge.”

Like Calvin Harris, Tiesto is signed up for 20 months, and will do 40 dates at Hakkasan with another 20 coming at Wet Republic. He also said he’d be trying to do a new show every week, and would be bringing in new DJs to feature. As if half the population of the Netherlands weren’t already over here wearing expensive headphones.
