Our fair burg just saw two of its biggest festivals of the year go by, and you know what? There was just not enough electronic music for my tastes. Yeah yeah, Bassnectar was there; yeah yeah, Dillon Francis probably rocked it. But if you were an electronic music fan trying to get yer fix at ACL Fest or Fun Fun Fun Fest, your attainment of musical satisfaction was probably hard to come by.
There is, however, a reason for this travesty: Lights All Night took all the beats and kept ’em in Dallas. Lights All Night is a blow-out, crazy-damn-huge music festival taking place this New Year’s weekend in Dallas, and its lineup is so massive and comprehensive, it’s frankly hard to believe.
Lights All Night is three days of DJs, beat-makers and EDM celebs from all over the world, and it’s set to be one of the best places on the planet to break in the New Year.
The already mind-destroyingly good lineup just got finalized, with big time acts Krewella, Tritonal, Baauer and Herobust joining a slew of musicians that includes some of the biggest names in any genre. We’re talking dudes like Flux Pavilion, Calvin Harris, Ghostland Observatory, Diplo, A-Trak, Avicii and the god of all DJs, the incomparable Tiesto. Texas boys Andrew Parsons, Jay Fresh, Skrause and Bobby Duque will also hold it down for the Lone Star state right along side the world-class talent, making this an excellent blend of eclectic acts.
When it comes to music festivals, there have been few electronic-focused throwdowns this big anywhere, ever, so pick up your tickets now to guarantee you’re there for this historical event.
Three-day passes are $185, and one-day passes are available for the festival, which is put on by Highland Events and is happening at Fair Park in Dallas on Dec. 29, 30 and 31. Check out the event page here as well as the full line-up and a video trailer below.
There ain’t gonna be a bigger, badder party in Texas this New Year’s, so if dancing and beats are your jam, get ye to Dallas this holiday.
