DALLAS, TX (October 30, 2017) – Lights All Night (LAN), the largest end-of-the-year music festival in Texas and throughout the Southern United States, is excited to officially reveal the full music lineup for the eighth annual event, which is set to return to Dallas Market Hall on Friday and Saturday, December 29 and 30 of New Year’s Eve weekend. LAN is also proud to announce that the festival is partnering with several of its top music performers in donating more than $22,000 in support of Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

As the longest running multi-day, multi-stage EDM event in Texas, Lights All Night looks to continues its tradition of offering DFW residents and travelers alike a highly-curated mix of top-tier electronic music acts spanning a variety of genres. With this newly revealed expanded music lineup Texas’s biggest end-of-year celebration will now play host to one of the most sought-after acts on the globe, Marshmello, whose identity is still unknown even as he continues to produce countless chart-topping hits including two of his most recent singles, both of which feature Texas-based artists — “Silence” featuring El Paso’s own Khalid and “Wolves,” which just dropped last week featuring pop-megastar Selena Gomez who herself was born in the DFW area. Also performing will be NGHTMRE, one of the foremost leaders in today’s trap scene who continues to tease audiences with fresh new singles in advance of his forthcoming yet-to-be-named EP, along with previously announced headliners Bassnectar, Porter Robinson (DJ set), Illenium and Seven Lions.

As genres continue to collide in today’s music landscape, Lights All Night will again feature some of the top acts in hip-hop, including Houston’s own Maxo Kream, in addition to previously announced Phase 1 rappers Ugly God and Smokepurpp. Additionally, the Grammy-award-winning DJ and producer Morgan Page will now be taking the stage, alongside experimental electronic DJ Liquid Stranger to close out 2017. Several back-to-back (B2B) collaborative performances are also scheduled for this year, including Holly B2B Slayer and Sage Armstrong B2B Bot, in addition to all of the other previously announced stellar talent like AC Slater, Destructo, Drezo, TOKiMONSTA, and more, as well as a live set from Ookay, which was just introduced for the first time at Nocturnal Wonderland this September. The full and final music lineup for Lights All Night 2017 can be found below:

In partnership with several of the performing artists at this year’s event, Lights All Night is proud to also announce just over $22,000 will be donated to support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The proceeds of this campaign are being donated directly to the Houston Food Bank — for which the organization states on its website, “every dollar donated to the Houston Food Bank provides the equivalent of three meals for an individual.”

In conjunction with the initial Phase 1 lineup announcement last month, Lights All Night and several of the performing artists on this year’s lineup agreed to a unique partnership to provide a specially-priced ‘Houston Relief Pass,’ of which a portion of proceeds from each ticket sold would be matched and then go on to support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. This special ticket cost just $10 more than the traditional ticket price of $109. The added $10 was then matched by the festival team, as well as by each of the following individual artists: Bassnectar, Porter Robinson, Illenium, Seven Lions, Ookay, Drezo and TOKiMONSTA.

“Having seen firsthand the destruction that Harvey caused across our state, my team and I immediately knew that we had to get Lights All Night involved to help support,” said Scott Osburn, cofounder of Lights All Night as well as a native Texan. “With the greater Houston area having been hit hardest, I thought it was only right to do something specifically to help out our neighboring sister city. I honestly cannot imagine a better opportunity to give back than in partnership with some of our amazing artists, who decided to match donations simply out of the kindness of their hearts.”

LAN celebrated its seventh anniversary last NYE weekend with a second consecutive year at Dallas Market Hall and more than 40,000 fans in attendance at the two-day event in 2016. Fans and attendees of the 2017 year-end event can expect another unforgettable weekend filled with awe-inspiring performances and top-of-the-line production for a truly memorable start to 2018. Similar to last year, LAN will include large outdoor areas, as well as some of the best food vendors in the DFW area and multiple free water stations throughout the expanded facility.

Two-day GA and VIP tickets are on sale now at www.lightsallnight.com. Weekend GA passes are available for purchase for just $119, while VIP passes cost $219. VIP passholders get the utmost festival-going experience at LAN with perks including preferred viewing areas, expedited entry, exclusive VIP bars, private restroom facilities, onsite event hosts, and so much more. Interested ticket-buyers are encouraged to act now, as supply is limited and ticket prices will increase as the festival date approaches.

More details surrounding the eighth annual event in 2017 will be announced in the coming weeks, including the daily lineup and single-day tickets, as well as additional experiential details like the lineup of vendors, merchants, and visual artists slated to be onsite throughout the two-day weekend.

This spring something new and exciting is taking place in Barbados. From April 4th-8th the stunning Caribbean island will be graced with a new week long music festival. Vujaday, which is defined as “an entirely new experience” and “like nothing you have ever seen or felt before,” will take place in a variety of unique locations around the island, leaving the first and last day of the week-long journey for travel.

Vujaday initially dropped their Phase One lineup back in November, which included Toronto electronic legend Art Department, All Day I Dream founder Lee Burridge, Chicago house hero Green Velvet, San Francisco resident and Dirtybird favorite Justin Martin, Life and Death founder DJ Tennis, Crew Love members Wolf + Lamb, Lonely C (Soul Clap), Nick Monaco and The Fitness & Pony, Hot Creations founder Lee Foss, Brooklyn duo Bedouin, Mikey Lion and Lee Reynolds from Desert Hearts, Italian electronic DJ Francesca Lombardo, Los Angeles house DJ Lauren Lane, UK electronic duo Solardo, and Nottingham tech house producer Latmun.

With the festival only a few months away, Vujaday has now returned with a stacked phase two lineup that includes Toolroom Records founder and a legendary name in the world of electronic music Mark Knight, San Francisco based house DJ atish, Toronto resident and Hot Creations signee Nathan Barato, Berlin house aficionada YokoO, Burning Man favorite Behrouz, Vienna based techno DJ Cassy, Brazilian born DJ Gaby Endo, New York resident and Ibiza favorite Salomé, renowned Canadian DJ Nitin, dreamy Toronto based project Lost Boy, and rising Miami house and techno producer m.O.N.R.O.E. To top things off, there will also be a rare B2B2B set with veteran DJs Danny Howells, Darren Emerson, and Dave Seaman.

The five primary events will run from Wednesday through Sunday during Vujaday with the largest event on Saturday. Events will take place on the Southern, Eastern and Western coasts of the island. More information related to specific events and venues is scheduled to be announced in the next few weeks.

An electronic event of this scale has yet to take place in Barbados, and is meant to create an unforgettable experience for locals and travelers. Locals will get the chance to experience techno and house DJs from around the world, many who have never performed in Barbados, while those new to the island will receive a much wider experience than they would normally get on a typical visit.

The team behind Vujaday will be bringing decades of experience in the festival and event space to the beautiful island of Barbados. This includes industry veterans that have been involved in the creation and operation of Toronto based events like Digital Dreams Music Festival, Electric Island, World Electronic Music Festival and All Day I Dream. Grab your tickets here for this special gathering and we’ll see you beach side.

You certainly heard that song last summer on the radio or at a festival. The singer of the smash summer dance track ‘Cola’ just started his North American headlining tour. He was nominated at Sunday night’s GRAMMY Awards for Best Dance Recording as a featured vocalist on the summer dance hit song ‘Cola’ produced by the British producer/DJ duo Camelphat. Undoubtedly the biggest and most addictive dance music record of 2017, ‘Cola’ has captivated tastemakers, DJs and clubbers alike – currently sitting at #1 at US Dance Radio after reaching #1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart. The song celebrates 55 million streams to date, and was the highest selling track on Beatport in 2017.

On Tuesday night, I had the chance to watch Elderbrook play his first show of his North American headlining tour in Miami. His live performance was incredible and full of energy. Here is a little preview of what he is able to do on stage.

Elderbrook is definitely one to watch in 2018! Make sure to follow him on social media.
