10 New Years Eve Parties Across the Nation
We can all agree that 2016 was… Intense. Let’s try to make the best of it and end the year with a bang, and hope for a better 2017!
10. The Big One NYE (San Francisco, California)
San Francisco is one of the dopest cities in the US. From the food, the culture, the architecture, and the music. Whether you are a San Francisco resident, or just visiting The Big One NYE will be one of the best dance parties in the country that night.
The diverse lineup features performances from indie rock psychedelic darlings The Flaming Lips, electronic rock duo Ratatat, ambient music producer Tycho, hip hop and electronic producer Gramatik, electronic band XXYYXX, platinum selling music producer and DJ Gigamesh, American electronic musical Shigeto, and many more.
The Big One NYE is for someone who wants to see an array of live acts. There’s live bands, djs, and artists that play instruments and DJ at the same time.
9. Lights All Night (Dallas, Texas)
One thing we know to be true is that the South sure know’s how to party. Lights All Out in Dallas will not disappoint.
The two-night event features some of the biggest and most prominent names in electronic music. Progressive trance group Above & Beyond will be performing a long with EDM heavy hitter Deadmau5, Billboard Hot 100 hitmaker Zedd, British electronic trio Nero, trap, hip hop, and bass music producer RL Grime, French house music producer Tchami, and hip hop artist A$AP FERG. And that’s only to name a few of the festival that has over 40 acts!
8. Justice New Years Eve (Brooklyn, New York)
The quirky hipster NYC bur rough of Brooklyn always does things a bit differently. Justice New Years Eve will give attendees an opportunity to see the legendary French Duo perform in an intimate warehouse on New Years Eve. And not only that, but there will also be performances from Odesza and Bob Moses.
7. Bassnectar New Years Eve 360 (Birmingham, Alabama)
It appears that Bassnectar will have a busy New Years Eve weekend. After his Friday night set at Decadence in Denver, he will be headlining his own event in Birmingham, Alabama.
Last year’s event sold out immediately, so they searched for a bigger venue to accommodate all of the attendees and the arena is twice the capacity of the one they had last year. Because, you know, Southern Hospitality.
Other special guests include: The Glitch Mob, Paper Diamond, and Psymbionic.
6. Hakkasan (Las Vegas, Nevada)
It’s no doubt that Las Vegas is the party capital of the world. Instead of a single night event, the worlds largest nightclub, Hakkasan will show sets by some of the biggest acts in the industry.
On December 29 you can see Steve Aoki, on 12/30 Tiesto will be doing a set, and on 12/31 Drake will be performing. A pretty solid lineup if you ask me!
5. Decadence New Years Eve (Denver, Colorado)
Keep warm and out of the snow in Denver at Decadence New Years Eve.
Decadence NYE in Denver will be a night to remember. I’m still in awe of how they managed to book so many big names in this two night event. Tiesto, Flume, Marshmello, Zeds Dead, Disclosure, The Chainsmokers, and Bassnectar just to name a few. On top of that, they are still waiting to release even more.
4. NYE Countdown 2016 (San Bernardino, California)
When you combine So-Cal and Insomniac Events, magic happens. Whether you’re in Los Angeles, Riverside or Orange County, it’s worth the track down to the desert for this 2 night event.
