Few DJs have seen Vegas change the way Fergie DJ has. Originally from Northern Ireland, Fergie (Robert Ferguson) has been spinning records since he was teenager, and lighting up Las Vegas clubs since 2001. He’s called Sin City home for four years now.
“The first time I came here playing dance music, people were looking at me like I had two f*cking heads,” Fergie says. “There was no dance music on the Strip whatsoever or really going on in America.”
How things have changed. That first gig was a Godskitchen event at Ra at the Luxor. Fergie has been a prominent resident since day one at Hakkasan at MGM Grand, the megaclub that has set the pace for the current Vegas nightscape. “It changed the way people looked at this music for sure, here and around the world. It really put Vegas on the map, on the world stage.”
