After performing one of Friday’s most sought after sets at the festival, headliner G-Eazy met up with Amber Rose where the two were seen laughing and chatting as they sipped #WHHSH cocktails together. Kellan Lutz arrived shortly after and mingled throughout the party, stopping to play ping-pong as revelers cheered him on. Additional celebrities, including Ed Westwick, Icona Pop, Bob Moses, J Sutta and more joined influencers and guests alike to party in true Las Vegas style.
As guests and celebrities made their way through the party, they chose their signature photo opp: a picture in front of the #WHHSH beer step-and-repeat adorned with dozens of the sleek black and white cans, a stacked “What Happens Here, Stays Here” logo and simply #WHHSH.

Once they came back to reality, partygoers were treated to exquisite hairstyle creations by Green Valley Ranch Resort, Spa & Casino and Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa at their pop-up braid bar complemented by glitter and fresh floral.
Partygoers sipped on #WHHSH beer and carefully crafted ARIA Resort & Casino beer-infused cocktails as they watched Zappos’ resident artist Miguel create an oversized floral masterpiece, and mingled with other revelers in the packed party.
Right as the party was really revving up, excitement levels hit an all-time high as Icona Pop went on-stage for an exclusive set, singing hits such as “I Love It.” After a #WHHSH toast with all partygoers, the duo jumped in the pool, splashed in the water and posed with guests.
As Icona Pop warmed up in the sun and sipped on their #WHHSH beers, Palms Casino Resort’s “Ditch Fridays” DJ, Mark Stylz, kept the party going for the rest of the day with a strong set that can only come from Las Vegas.
