    I am going to Vegas next May and it is the week-end before EDC. The hotels were a lot cheaper the week before and I am wondering if I just booked in a wrong time. Does the city will be dead the week before and after EDC? Will it impact the night clubs as there won't be any known djs the week before?

    Thanks for the help

    IMHO, Las Vegas is never "dead". Pick the price you want to pay for a hotel room, and stick with it. Personally, I never saw much merit in picking specific dates unless the event was really something special.

    There's always something to do in Las Vegas. Of course, that being said that I have not paid for a room in Las Vegas since 2013.

    Vegas is never dead.

    Maybe a few less "name" acts is possible. But, never dead.

    I know that I'm going to the wrong destination, but I hate crowds. I also like to save money. So when I go for strictly vacation time I book the cheapest weeks. The cheapest weeks is usually when there will be less people. It's the entire supply and demand thing. The thing with less people in Vegas is that there is still a lot of people around and plenty of things to see and do. It's just easier to walk down the sidewalks in many places... Sometimes.

    Think the DJs are all contracted to the resorts, so the clubs still have their nights.

    I've been a few times during EDC, just because it landed on the dates I was going, and all I noticed was more people walking around indoors in swimwear, whilst heavily drugged lol.

    I was there this year the week before EDC. I stayed downtown and it was the same ol' same ol. Slightly crowded by afternoon and wall to wall people under the canopy at night. I agree with everyone else above when they stated that Vegas is never really "dead." I would be grateful to have some elbow room if the crowds are a bit thinner. Prices down - that's your first win!
