In the short amount of time that Las Vegas club KAOS spent operating, its run was mired by exuberant costs and rumors of artists pulling out of their residencies. Now, KAOS will face a legal battle with Kaskade for breach of contract on the grounds of cancelling his shows in light of the club’s closure.
In the lawsuit, Ryan Raddon (better known as Kaskade) reportedly entered in a two-year agreement with FP Holdings, the company behind Palms Casino Resort and KAOS, for a 60-show deal. The superstar DJ alleges he was not informed of KAOS’ impending closing at the time of his show cancellations. He fulfilled 20 of the 60 shows before the club canceled the remainder—only compensating Raddon for the three shows slated to take place in October.
“As a result, FP is unable to provide Raddon with a suitable venue for either the remaining performances to be held in 2019 or the performances in 2020, which further breach of the agreement,” the lawsuit states.
KAOS debuted in the beginning of the year as the crown jewel of Palms Casino Resort. The day and nightclub boasted both Vegas’ largest outward-facing LED screen and artist residencies from Skrillex, Cardi B, Above & Beyond, and more before suddenly folding after seven months. A class action suit was also filed two days after KAOS’ closure on behalf of the club’s workers.
