Hard Rock Hotel, Jun 15, Jul 20, Aug 17
The pilgrimage to Macau for the finest rock 'n' roll poolside madness begins in June. The Hard Rock has confirmed three pool parties for its highly anticipated summer Splash series. Spanish DJ Danny Avila (protégé of Tiësto and Freddy le Grande) is confirmed for the first party and if the line up from last year is an indicator for this year, then we can guarantee quality beats. The party begins at 4pm, so you can get going early and then watch the sunset from the guitar-shaped pool. Designer Adam Pollina, who has worked for both DC and Marvel comics, is creating the venue's themed décor, so expect a unique and interesting backdrop. Tickets: $500;
