It's a battle of the beats!

They're both just 23 years old, but they're two of the biggest names in electronic music – and Avicii and Zedd gave PEOPLE.com a sneak peek at what they'll be spinning during their turntable takeover in Las Vegas over Memorial Day weekend.

Kicking off one of the biggest party weekends of the year, Zedd (born Anton Zaslavski) will keep the music flowing on Friday, from 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. at Mandalay Bay's brand new nightclub, Light.

"It is an honor to be the one to play for the opening of this club which will hopefully change a whole city," the Clarity producer tells PEOPLE. "We've been working on the concept for my show for so long now and tweaking our visuals and lots of performance aspects. I obviously can't say too much about it yet, but it will be a very unique thing in Vegas and in the whole world."



Meanwhile, Avicii, (real name: Tim Bergling) will be spinning nearby starting in the wee hours of Saturday at 1:00 a.m. at XS Nightclub inside the Wynn Las Vegas & Encore Resort.

"I always have such a great time when I do Vegas shows – especially on the bigger weekends," he tells PEOPLE. "It's a great weekend to be playing in Vegas with so many people coming out and a lot of stuff happening."

Zedd will be back at it on Saturday afternoon as he and and fellow deejay, Axwell, will entertain guests from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. as they take over the turntables on the 1,500 sq.-ft. stage at Light's daytimespot, Daylight Beach Club.
