Lights All Night, one of the longest-running end-of-year music festivals in the country and the largest in Texas, is excited to officially reveal the full lineup for this year’s two-day event, which is returning to Dallas Market Hall on Friday and Saturday, December 28 and 29. Two-day GA and VIP tickets are on sale now at www.lightsallnight.com.
Phase 2 headliners include Excision and Kaskade, who will also do a Redux set. It will take place just one hour before doors open. Access to Kaskade will be available exclusively to festival attendees who opt for the “Pre-Party + Express Entry” ticket add-on. “Redux” is a highly rare DJ-driven performance from Kaskade meant for smaller, intimate venues and clubs that focus more on his roots in producing and mixing live deep house music. Also included is a special House set by Ekali as well.
Dance-pop duo Sofi Tukker, who continue to perform in support of their debut studio album, Treehouse, released this past April that features the smash hit “”Batshit,” along with New York-based DJ Jai Wolf. Previously announced acts confirmed to perform at LAN 2018 also include headliners like perennial chart-topping producer Diplo, Tiësto; and one of the biggest female-led DJ acts in the world, Rezz; along with Atlanta’s most beloved trap-rapper and New York Times best-selling author Gucci Mane. Other notable Phase 1 acts set to perform include What So Not, Mr. Carmack, Anti Up (the new collaborative project between Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo); LUCA LUSH; Shiba San; and a very special collaborative performance featuring Eprom B2B Bleep Bloop, among others.
In total, more than 40 music acts from across Texas and around the globe are set to perform at this year’s ninth annual event. The full lineup is listed below, as well as online at www.lightsallnight.com.
Two-day GA and VIP tickets are on sale now at www.lightsallnight.com. Weekend GA passes are available for purchase for $119.95, while weekend VIP passes cost just $229.95. VIP ticket-holders will have access to the utmost festival-going experience with perks including the Lights All Night Pre-Party, preferred viewing areas at the festival, expedited entry, exclusive VIP bars, private restroom facilities, on-site event hosts, and more.
For those looking to take their year-end celebrations to the next level, several Bottle Service Packages are available for purchase ranging in price from $1,400 to $2,500 through a new partnership with one of DFW’s top nightclubs, Citizen. Those interested in reserving a private table featuring bottle service, along with a dedicated concierge and server, are encouraged to contact LAN directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested VIP and Bottle Service patrons are encouraged to purchase now, as supply is limited and prices will increase as the festival date approaches.
Additionally, LAN has introduced two brand new ticket options for festival-goers, both of which are available for sale now on the festival website. Express Entry offers ticket-holders the opportunity to skip the GA line with dedicated and expedited entry.
Another new ticket option is the Pre-Party + Express Entry, which, in addition to guaranteeing access to the Express Entry lane throughout the weekend, allows patrons festival entry one hour before doors open to experience a very special DJ set each night, including Kaskade (Redux set) and Elaki (House set). These Pre-Party + Express Entry ticket-holders will also be the very first patrons able to explore the grounds and check out the ever-evolving main stage designs and will have the opportunity to claim coveted viewing locations. These will also be the very first fans to enjoy – with no wait lines – the festival’s expansive food and drink offerings that will be available before doors open to the general public.
This year’s event will once again return to Dallas Market Hall, located just minutes from downtown Dallas, after first playing host to LAN in 2015. After a successful and well-received update to the festival layout last year, the event site in Dallas Market Hall will expand once again to now feature four stages total, thanks to the addition of two brand new stages at this year’s event. As in previous years, LAN will offer some of the best food vendors in the DFW area and multiple free water stations throughout the expanded facility. More details regarding the festival’s new layout and design, including information surrounding art installations and stage production, will be revealed closer to the festival dates.
LAN celebrated its eighth event last NYE weekend in 2017 with a third consecutive year at Dallas Market Hall and more than 30,000 fans in attendance at the two-day sold-out event in Dallas. In 2017, LAN once again offered festival-goers of all ages access to some of today’s top electronic and hip-hop acts across the globe, including Bassnectar, Marshmello, Porter Robinson, Illenium, Seven Lions, NGHTMRE, Ugly God, Smokepurpp, and more.
The festival team would like to personally thank all of the 2018 partners who are helping to make this year’s event possible, including Bud Light; Mike’s Harder Lemonade; Pepsi; Tito’s Handmade Vodka; Bacardi Rum; Monster Energy Drink; GLOFX; LYFT; Vixen Vapors; 99 Brand Party; and Visit Dallas.
Additionally, the official charity partner for the 2018 event is DFW Rescue Me, a foster-based pet rescue nonprofit based in the Dallas area. It is the goal of DFW Rescue Me to have a positive impact on those statistics through adoption programs, teaching responsible pet ownership, and emphasizing the importance of spaying and neutering to control overpopulation. Through this partnership, LAN will be donating a portion of proceeds from the 2018 event to support the local nonprofit.
More details surrounding the ninth annual event will be announced in the coming weeks, including the daily performance schedule, as well as the lineup of vendors, merchants, and visual artists slated to be onsite throughout the weekend.
