GTA 5's New Cayo Perico Heist Update Adds Social Space With Real DJs, Dancing, And More

The Cayo Perico Heist introduces a new social space, The Music Locker, where you can watch sets from real-life DJs.


Grand Theft Auto V's latest update to the Online mode is a big one. The Cayo Perico Heist is GTA Online's biggest ever expansion, and it's launching on December 15. Rockstar Games has now announced a few more details about it, beginning with its new social space, The Music Locker.

The Music Locker is a literal underground music club that is located beneath the Diamond Casino and Resort. Real-life DJs will perform "residencies" at the club, including Moodymann, Keinemusik, and Palms Trax.

Now Playing: GTA Online - The Cayo Perico Heist Trailer

In addition to stopping by to catch a set, players can experience new gameplay features like the ability to dance with a partner. There is also a set of new dance moves. No word yet on if you can take part in a dance-off, but we sure hope that's included.

Everyone can visit The Music Locker for free, but you need to own a Penthouse at the Diamond Casino and Resort to get into the VIP section. It's not immediately clear what awaits players there.

The Cayo Perico Heist also introduces more radio stations, updates to existing radio stations, new DJs, and more music. Outside of the music-themed updates, the update adds a new island where players can take part in the daring new heist of the expansion's name. Notably, this is the first heist that can be played solo, though you also have the opportunity to join up with three other players as in the past.

GTA Online is a pioneer for in-game live music. In 2018, GTA Online released a player-owned club featuring DJs from certain missions in the game. More recently, games like Fortnite, Roblox, and others who have hosted gigs for performers such as Travis Scott, Lil Nas X, and others.

GTA Online continues to be very popular, many years after release. As such, Rockstar is releasing a standalone version of GTA Online in 2021, first on PS5 and then for other platforms. Also coming in 2021 is a new version of GTA 5 made specifically for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Rockstar's latest game, Red Dead Redemption 2, recently launched a standalone version of its own multiplayer mode.
