We’re celebrating 10 years of Lights All Night December 27th and 28, 2019 and LAN truly brought the fire with this year’s lineup. While we wish we could be at every stage at the same time to see all of the amazing artists this year. We’ve somehow managed to narrow down the top 10 must see sets this year.
1. Skrillex (FRIDAY 12:45am-2am Supernova)
What better way to say goodbye to a decade than an artist that pretty much defined the last decade of EDM. After taking a break from touring and music, Skrillex made a major comeback this year and headlined almost every major festival from EDC Mexico to Ultra Korea. His “Midnight Hour” collab with latest project, Boyz Noise, and Ty Dolla $ign easily became one of the biggest hits of 2019. He has been teasing a lot of unreleased music in his latest sets, so were hoping hes saved some for us at LAN.
2. Virtual Self (FRIDAY 11:15pm -12:30 am Supernova)
Its been over 2 years since Porter Robinson shocked the electronic music community with his Virtual Self project. The project is an extreme departure from his debut album “Worlds,” for a more techno/trance sound inspired by late 90s and early 2000’s dance music. The Virtual Self EP consists of 5 songs, and the live show is highly immersive with purposeful lights and visuals illustrating one’s journey of self. If you haven’t had the chance to catch a Virtual Self set in the last 2 years of , we highly recommend closing out 2019 with one.
3. Louis The Child (SATURDAY 10:45pm-12am Supernova)

The duo has been making waves throughout EDM since their rise back in 2017 with the ‘Love Is Alive’ album and their countless remixes. Having just wrapped up their ‘Here For Now’ Tour, the boys are focusing on releasing music left and right. We’re super excited to dance along to their cheerful tracks and new IDs.
4. San Holo (SATURDAY 9:30pm-10:30pm Supernova)

We’re feeling 100% blessed to see San Holo at LAN this year. San’s unique sound has transformed through the decade. From first surfacing with iconic future bass track ‘Lights’ and now to his more rock ballad, emotional live tracks. What every % you’re at, we can assure you that San Holo’s set with keep you vibrant through out.
5. AC Slater (FRIDAY Supernova 7:30pm-8:30pm)
We’re super excited about Night Bass Takeover this year, and what better way to celebrate than with the Night Bass King himself, AC Slater. With over 100 tracks and remixes within the last 5 years, you’ll be sure to recognize his signature sound as he fuses house music and dirty UK garage basslines.
6. Golf Clap b2b Codes (FRIDAY 9:45pm – 10:45pm Planet PRIME)
Both Golf Clap and Codes have had outstanding success in 2019 within the house music scene. Golf Clap took their Detroit and Chicago based house sound across the country for their “Come Alive Tour,” and Insomniac Radio Show. Their fan base continues to grow through their Country Club Disco label and community on Facebook. With releases on Mau5trap and Insomniac Records this year 2019 was a standout year for them so it only makes sense to spend an hour with them at Planet Prime.
Codes is another house artist taking the scene by storm with 2019 being his busiest year to date. Not only has he been selling out shows across the country, but launched his new spicy record label Holy Mole Music. As a New York based producer, Codes combines hip-hop and house, and manages to remain authentically underground while growing his following. Known for his sample manipulation and high energy sets he”ll be sure to leave you with a funky feeling. Check out his Winter Fresh sampler mix below for a taste.

Future Bass producer Manila Killa, is known for comprising one half of indie-house duo Hotel Garuda. Thriving off tropical vibes and sensual tones, he took our ears on a tropical journey this year with multiple singles and his debut solo album release “1993”. Take a break and relax while you enjoy Manila Killa’s chill vibes before headbanging the night away.
8. Kayzo (FRIDAY 10:00pm – 11:00pm Supernova)
Within the decade, Kayzo has made a huge name for himself with his angsty rock tracks mixed with heavy bass. Hailing from Houston, Texas, Kayzo has risen to the top of the EDM charts and now has his own record label, Welcome Records. Now with his movement growing he’s going on an Unleashed tour. We hope to get a taste of Unleashed on Friday!
9. Jack Beats b2b Bijou (FRIDAY 11:45pm -12:45am Planet PRIME)
This year has been a big year from G House Guru BIJOU and as well for Sydney producer Jack Beats. The two having massive attributes to the Night Bass family and to their mixes, these two were bound to be put in a B2B together.
10. Subtronics (SATURDAY 9:00pm – 10:00pm Intergalactic)
2019 hit different for 27 year old Philadelphia dubstep producer Subtronics. His major collab/hit “Griztronics,” with Griz went viral, turning it into a dubstep anthem and solidifying him as a major breakout artist of 2019. Drawing on robotic sounds and heavily influenced by Rusko, Skism, and Downlink, Subtronics continues to gain support within the dubstep community while growing his Cyclops Army.
The great thing about this year’s LAN lineup is the variety and abundance of fantastic artists. Check out the official set times below to see when all your favorite artists are playing.
