The Ultimate EDM New Year's Eve Guide
Planning for New Year's can be a frustrating and confusing experience. This year, with the huge number of events being put on, we've taken the time to sort through them and give you our picks for the biggest party night of the year. Read below for the full story.
Picking the right place to party on New Year's is important. After all, you only get one chance per year to do it right. Luckily, since New Year's Day is (mercifully) a national holiday, you have no excuse to do anything less than go all-out on New Year's Eve.
Unfortunately, making specific plans can get really confusing. With tons of different options and ticket prices skyrocketing, it can be tough to figure out the best way to spend your special night.
We've made it really easy. These are our picks for the best EDM events taking place on New Year's Eve in several areas. In some cases, we've included an honorable mention for other events that could easily replace our picks depending on your specific taste in music, your preferred atmosphere, or your budget. Keep in mind that some of the more expensive events also include an open bar (read: free drinks), so consider that when making your decision.
