Lights All Night Releases Full Lineup, Results of Houston Fundraiser

Come year's end, 40,000 people are expected to descend on Dallas Market Hall. That's how many turned out for last year's Lights All Night festival, a two-day extravaganza of electronic dance music and hip-hop planned this year for Dec. 29-30.

Lights All Night announced the initial lineup for its eighth annual festival earlier this fall, but now we have the full lineup. The nine additions to the lineup are: Marshmello, NGHTMRE, Maxo Kream, Liquid Stranger, Morgan Page, Blackgummy, Holly B2B Slayer, Sage Armstrong B2B Bot and Wongo. Several of the artists have ties to Texas.

DJ and producer Marshmello — who remains anonymous by wearing a headpiece that's somewhere between a marshmallow and a lego head — collaborated on his summer single "Silence" with El Paso R&B singer Khalid and on "Wolves" with Dallas native Selena Gomez. "Wolves" is No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic chart. In September, Forbes named Marhsmello the eighth-highest-paid DJ in the world; he earned $21 million in one year.

Houston rapper Maxo Kream has also been added to the Lights All Night lineup.

Speaking of Houston, we now know that Lights All Night raised $22,000 for the Houston Food Bank through its sale of special Houston Relief passes in the weeks after Hurricane Harvey hit. Buyers had the option to spend an extra $10 on their tickets, which was matched by both the festival and 10 of its artists: Bassnectar, Porter Robinson, Illenium, Seven Lions, Ookay, Drezo and TOKiMONSTA.
