If you haven’t made plans for New Year’s Eve yet, there are a ton of great options regardless of what part of the country you’re in.

A ton of big headliners performing both solo shows and as part of bigger festivals. We’ll keep adding to this list as more shows get announced. If you hear about a show or artist we don’t have included, let us know in the comments!

As a tip – if you’re set on seeing a show don’t wait to buy your tickets. They typically sell out fast and buying them second hand can be really expensive.

Have your tickets, but not sure what to pack? We put together a festival packing list to help out.

Music Festivals

Lights All Night (Dallas, TX & El Paso, TX)

Lights All Night has two locations – Dallas, TX on December 30th and 31st and El Paso, TX for a smaller lineup on NYE.

The lineup this year is killer. Well worth the cost of admission ($139.99 before tax and fees for Dallas, and only $60 before tax and fees for El Paso).

The Dallas headliners are Above & Beyond, deadmau5, Zedd, Nero, RL Grime, and Tchami.

The El Paso headliners are deadmau5, RL Grime, and Excision.

Decadence (Denver, CO and Chandler, AZ)

Decadence was originally supposed to have a third NYE festival in Salt Lake City this year, but it was cancelled.

Don’t worry – the lineups for Arizona and Denver look to make up for it. Tickets for Arizona are $179 before tax and fees, while the Denver festival appears to be sold out except for single day passes. If you want a 2-day general admission ticket for Denver you’ll need to check out StubHub.

Arizona headliners include The Chainsmokers, deadmau5, Jauz, Marshmello, Porter Robinson, DJ Snake, Tritonal, Zedd, and Zomboy.

You can find out more information about Decadence in Arizona here.

Denver headliners include Bassnectar, The Chainsmokers, Eric Prydz, Flume, Marshmello, Tiesto, Zeds Dead, and more.

Reaction New Year’s Eve (Rosemont, IL)

Reaction New Year’s is a 2 day festival held in Rosemont. While the lineup may not pack the power that some of the other festivals have, there are still some solid DJs including Dillon Francis, Tchami, and Zeds Dead.

2-Day General Admission passes are only $99 before taxes and fees, so if you’re in the area it’s well worth the cost to get in.
