This year, Lights All Night has expanded to three nights, and is taking over Fair Park, a city-owned venue. On Sunday, the organizers sent out a press release (view below) alerting attendees that there is a curfew. Saturday and Sunday night's shows will end at midnight, and Monday's NYE show will end at 12:30 a.m.
Understandably, many who bought tickets for the event were upset that this bit of info was dropped on them a week before the festival. There are LAN-sponsored "afterparties," but those will likely have a price on them. Stay tuned for our report on Monday.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
