Omnia brings a bit of Sin City to downtown San Diego

“A little party never killed nobody,” and that’s exactly what Omnia San Diego is hoping for when it hosts top DJ and Las Vegas headliner Kaskade on Friday night when he debuts at the downtown nightclub.

Kaskade (Steppin’ Out and I Remember with Deadmau5), who marked his new residency at Omnia Las Vegas in December - arriving via Maverick Helicopter at the Caesars Palace entrance - follows in the Omnia San Diego footsteps of renowned DJ Zedd, whose latest Top 10 hit is the Alessia Cara collaboration “Stay.”

Kaskade, birth name Ryan Raddon, also had residencies at Marquee at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub at Steve Wynn’s Encore. Kaskade won DJ Times magazine’s America’s Best DJ Award in 2011 and 2013 and was runner-up in 2010, 2015 and 2016.

Joining Zedd and Kaskade at Omnia San Diego through next month is a list of global talent that also includes Las Vegas headliners and regulars Julian Jordan, Slander, Markus Schulz, Ruckus, Porter Robinson and Dash Berlin. During Labor Day, big-named DJs Vice, Armin van Buuren and Dada Life will headline Omnia San Diego’s weekend lineup.

Tickets for Grammy nominee Kaskade and the full roster of DJs at Omnia San Diego are available at
