As the year is quickly coming to an end, we continue seeing amazing artists playing New Years Eve weekend shows and festivals everywhere. One of the longest-running Texas festival that brings these talented producers to Texas every year is Lights All Night (LAN). This time, LAN celebrates its 10th year of giving us this end-of-the year festival and is expecting more than 60 musicians to play between both Friday Dec. 27 and Saturday Dec. 28. Between the strong lineup, amazing crowd, and beautiful art and audio-visual installations, its no surprise this year is sold out!
LAN, which will take place at Dallas Market Hall, 2200 N. Stemmons Fwy., will have FIVE stages throughout its indoor/outdoor venue. Planet Prime, the stage with the music label takeovers, and Space Station are two of the stages that will be located outside. Inside will be Intergalactic, Galaxy Disco and the main stage Supernova. Other amenities on site will include water stations, bars, restrooms, merch, medical tents, and food vendors. Checkout the layout below!
LAN will feature some of the biggest electronic artists including Skrillex and the duo Louis The Child; two of the headliners for each day. Two labels, Night Bass and Gravedancer, are primed for takeovers with sets like AL Ross b2b Bommer and Jack Beats b2b Bijou. Below are artists scheduled sets and the stages they will be at. Start planning if you haven’t!
Of course the party doesn’t just stop at the festival. For all those wanting to go even later into the night LAN is hosting official afters each night at Lizard Lounge. On the first night you can catch AC Slater, Jack Beats and Taiki Nulight. Night two LAN brings you none other than San Holo to really make sure the Ten Year Anniversary ends on a high note.

Public parking ranging from $20-$25 will be available in the parking garage outside of the venue beginning at 4 PM each day. Ride Share Drop-Off & Pick-Up, as well as DART will also be other options. If you haven’t gotten familiar with the Lights All Night website, make sure to head on over to ensure any other last minute information you may need such as prohibited items or forms of identification that are acceptable, which includes: drivers licenses, id cards, passports, etc.
Those with VIP access can expect to skip the entry line and experience some of production up close with enough space to dance freely. Private bars, bathrooms, outdoor area, and an event host will also be other perks of VIP passes. While the Platinum VIP gets all that and all inclusive alcohol and drinks, private restrooms and access to the Skybox Lounge. Needless to say the platinum holders are sitting pretty.
Will all that being said, we are officially days away from one of the biggest parties in Texas and could not be any more excited! Put on your best rave clothes, grab your friends, and ring in the new year at Lights All Night this weekend!
