A Happier New Year: Lights All Night Partners With Spin, Adds Third Stage and 13 More Acts.
Speaking of breaking festival news, there's some big news today out of Highland Entertainment's camp today: The people who are bringing the ballinous, two-night, EDM-heavy New Year's Eve affair Lights All Night to the Dallas Convention Center this year have announced that, in addition to the already-announced two stages featuring some of the biggest names in the electronic music world, they'll now also boast a third stage on both nights.
To fill up this most recently announced stage, the festival has also announced another 13 more acts that will be playing this year's festival. Now also performing on the December 30 bill will be Big Gigantic, Bonobo, Paper Diamond, White Panda, Zoogma and Crizzly. Meanwhile, New Year's Eve itself will feature added performances from Caspa, Treasure Fingers, Kill The Noise, Savoy Live, Michal Menert,
Govinda and the locally connected Nadis Warriors.
In more insider media news, the festival also announced today that Spin magazine has paired with the event.
According to Spin PR director Julia Walker, that simply means
that the magazine "will be offering exclusive pre-event and on-site
coverage from the festival." As if there was any doubt that an event
featuring all of these massive names wouldn't draw major national media
attention, let alone from Spin, who just did a whole EDM expose last month.
