After three years at Caesars Palace, DJ AM is moving into bigger digs.

It was announced today that AM is packing up his turntables and taking them to the Palms.

The move comes after three years as resident DJ at Pure nightclub. His final performance at the Caesars Palace’s hotspot was on Friday April 3.

The 36-year-old DJ, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, will begin his new residency at Rain nightclub on April 24.

“I’m very excited to call Rain Nightclub my new home,” Goldstein said. “I’ve always aimed to take leaps and bounds in the music industry, and I expect no less than to take my music to a whole new level at Rain Nightclub.”

“I look forward to further making my mark in Las Vegas and transforming Sin City into a global music destination,” he said.

The deal will see him set the soundtrack at the popular nightspot every Friday night for the foreseeable future. No dates or terms of the contract were released.

Today’s announcement makes DJ AM the second resident DJ at Rain. He joins world-renowned DJ Paul Oakenfold, whose signature party, “Perfecto,” takes over the popular club every Saturday night.

Goldstein’s publicist said his departure from Pure was amicable and that the DJ remains on good terms with everyone at Pure Management Group.

“He was at Pure for three years and had a blast working with everyone at PMG,” she said in an e-mailed statement. “(He) is happy to call them his friends.”

Along with PMG and fellow celebrity investor Christina Aguilera, Goldstein co-owns Pure’s sister club, LAX, at the Luxor.

Goldstein made headlines last year when he was involved in a fatal plane crash in South Carolina. His friend and frequent collaborator, Travis Barker of the punk band, Blink 182, were critically injured in the crash.

He and Barker have since recovered from their injuries, however, and have performed together several times since the accident.

The two will play the Coachella music festival a week before Goldstein begins his Rain residency, on April 18.
