You're in a global super club hub
Casinos have the sort of income it takes to build out high-end experiences that are a stretch of the imagination anywhere else in the world. It’s difficult to do what Vegas manages without the huge, institutional culture that generates the city’s income. The city is nightlife. By definition, nowhere competes, so competition for DJ residencies is fierce.
You're more than a DJ
Like his Hakkasan peers Calvin Harris, Tiesto, and Hardwell, Aoki is a fully functioning brand -- in his case, a nascent fashion line, a charitable fund, and a record label (with Vegas and LA studios) that’s celebrating its 20th anniversary. All of this is to say that Steve’s is a name that puts bodies on the dancefloor and bottles in the VIP room, and has a resume that's hard to find outside of Las Vegas. That doesn’t happen by osmosis; it takes work outside the DJ booth.
