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."

Unfortunately not everyone can be in Las Vegas when the ball drops this year, but Eric Prydz is bringing the party to PEOPLE.com readers in advance.
The DJ and producer, 36 – best known for his 2004 hit single, "Call on Me" – is playing a three-hour extended set at Surrender Nightclub on Monday, and he's sharing the tracks he's most excited to spin, including songs from his album, Eric Prydz Presents Pryda.
"I love to play on New Year's Eve because it has that special tension in the air," Prydz says. "People are so excited about the new year coming, leaving the old behind and starting fresh. It's also the perfect excuse to blow off some steam after that long Christmas with family. Let's make New Year's Eve 2013 one to remember!"

It's official: The five-member pop sensation and U.K. chart toppers The Saturdays have hit U.S. shores!
Una Healy, 31, Rochelle Humes, 23, Mollie King, 25, Frankie Sandford, 23, and Vanessa White, 22, have had 11 top-10 singles in the U.K. since they came together in 2007.

Their next album is due out in January and is being produced in the U.S. by Rodney Jerkins of Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and – you guessed it! – Spice Girls fame. "Apparently Britney is in and out of his studio all the time," Sandford says. "Mollie is obviously hoping to bump into her!"

A living legend in the world of country music with a record 59 No. 1 hits to his name, Strait, 60, told reporters Wednesday at Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum that after three decades of performing, he'll take his show on the road for a final time next year with the Cowboy Rides Away Tour.
"This is going to be a very special, emotional tour for me," Strait said in a statement. "Everywhere we're going holds fond memories and I’m looking forward to paying my respects."

When she moved to Los Angeles 12 years ago, Pink was a very different person from who she is today.
"I was a delinquent," the Pennsylvania-born singer-songwriter tells PEOPLE in its new issue. "An angry, rebellious, self-righteous, ambitious, crazy person who liked to have too much fun."
And now? "We have no idea what we did before having Willow," she says of her 15-month-old daughter with her husband (since 2006), motocross champ Carey Hart. "Having a child is the best thing that could happen."

Tony Martin, a crooner best known for his roles in Hollywood musicals, has died at 98.
Martin passed away of natural causes Friday at his home in West Los Angeles, his friend Beverly Scott told the Associated Press.

His popularity spanned from the late 1930s through the 1950s when Martin became synonymous with songs like "Stranger in Paradise," "La Vie en Rose," "Fools Rush In" and more.

If you're suffering from Friggatriskaidekaphobia – to the uninitiated, that's a fear of Friday the 13th – fret not. Here's just the solution for your bad luck: a very lucky Spotify playlist.
While Rebecca Black's "Friday" may come to mind, it isn't on Spotify.
Instead, we dug up some fun songs about superstitions ("Knock on Wood," "Black Cat," "That Old Black Magic"), Fridays ("Freaky Friday"), and even the date itself (Johnny Cash's haunting "Thirteen").
This way, those not feeling so "Lucky" – or find the day too "Spooky" – can just listen to "Tomorrow Will Be Kinder" and pray for Saturday to get here as quickly as possible.

They're old schoolmates of Kate and Prince William's. They get teased by Prince Philip. And they can count stars from Jennifer Hudson to Kevin Spacey among their fans. So who are exactly they?
Meet Blake, the U.K. classical-pop quartet who've sold more than a million albums worldwide – and are prepping their U.S. invasion with the melodic single, "Start Over," already a hit on Sirius Radio's pop chart. (Watch the video below.)
Four good-looking guys who harmonize? Just don't call them a boy band: "It's flattering to be called a "boy" at this point," says Ollie Baines, 29, who founded the group with Jules Knight, 30. "Maybe "man band" is better," adds newest member, Humphrey Berney, 31.
