OMFG! NYE 2017 San Diego Preview

New Years Eve is a time of reflection and resolutions. The end of December always creeps up faster than you anticipated and the pressure is immense to have a good time. OMFG! NYE San Diego made sure that won’t be a problem for you this year.

Ring in 2017 with a three night dance party extravaganza. An array of live music, upscale production, and some of the biggest names in dance music to bring in your near year proper.

There are many reasons to go with OMFG! NYE as your party of choice for New Years Eve 2017. First of all, the event is three nights opposed to a single night event. Therefore, you get a three night long celebration of popping champagne, dancing with your closet friends, and practicing for your perfect New Years Eve kiss. Secondly, because it’s produced by LED Presents you know the production will be top notch.

Lastly, San Diego is the perfect city to ring in the New Year. Spend your nights at an epic dance party and during the day you get to lay out on the beach. What’s better than that? Plus San Diego is an easy destination for not only the locals, but people who live in surrounding areas such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Riverside, or even Phoenix.

OMFG! NYE 2017 – December 29-31

OMFG! NYE San Diego sets itself apart for many reasons. Year after year the event is filled to the brim with 16,000 attendees. Clearly it’s more than just a stacked lineup that keeps people interested. LED Presents deck the venue out with wide and colorful LED panels all over the stage, beaming lasers that flash vibrant visuals, they encourage participation with the blow up zebras, flags, and balloons in the air. LED Presents delivers a well rounded rave experience that stands alone.

The Lineup

Once again, OMFG! NYE has managed to book some of the heaviest hitters in the music industry. Headliners include Canadian electronic dance duo Adventure Club, legendary French hit maker DJ Snake and bass house artist Jauz. Supporting performances will be by DJ Slander, Bro Safari, and Miami based house/hip-hop/trap producers GTA. OMFG features one of the most well rounded lineups of the season. You can’t miss out!

OMFG! NYE 2016 saw headliners such as Chicago based musical duo Flosstradamus, EDM producer and DJ Porter Robinson, and Israeli dubstep producer Borgore. Previous years have seen performances by legendary Dutch DJ Tiesto, house and electro producer Hardwell, American DJ, record producer and co-founder of Major Lazer, Diplo, and Grammy nominated producer DJ Snake.

It will be exciting to say who they have in store for this year!

The Venue

The arena was built in 1966 by local football hero Robert Breitbard for $6.4 million. It opened November 17, 1966 when over 11,000 people watched professional hockey team the San Diego Gulls win their season opener against the Seattle Totems.

The Valley View Casino Center (formerly known as San Diego Sports Arena) is an indoor arena that fits over 15,000 people for concerts. In the year 2000, Billboard Magazine listed the arena as the “#1” facility in the nation for venues of it’s size, it was ranked #2 in 2002, and #5 in 2003.

In 2013 U-T San Diego ranked the arena #3 on their list of the 50 most notable locations in San Diego History. And that’s quite a feat, considering how many iconic structures and landmarks located in San Diego.

The venue has hosted many high profile events such as performances by legendary grunge rock band Nirvana, psychedelic guitar god Jimi Hendrix, and various WWE events. The venues exterior was even filmed for Cameron Crowe’s cult classic Almost Famous.  If the wall’s of this venue could talk, they would have many stories to tell.
