This is poised to be a big year for Lights All Night. North Texas' biggest EDM festival — the area's biggest music festival, period — has already expanded from one day to two, and taken up residency at Dallas Market Hall for its annual New Year's bash. This year will be particularly special, though, as organizers are planning their first-ever LAN in El Paso, set to take place the same time as the one here in Dallas.
One major thing has remained unknown, until now: the lineup. A little bit of it had already been revealed with the news of the El Paso event, including headliners Deadmau5, RL Grime, Tchami, Above & Beyond, ZEDD, A$AP Ferg and NERO. Those are undoubtedly the biggest draws on the bill, but now LAN has revealed the rest of the artists set to perform on Dec. 30 and 31.
Among the new additions in the supporting acts are 12th Planet, A-Track and Cazzette, bringing the total to nearly 30 performers. Check out the full list of artists below.
Many of the artists performing in Dallas will also be appearing in El Paso, which organizers hope will attract a whole other population of fans from West Texas, the Southwest and Mexico. While that full lineup is yet to be announced, it will be anchored by Deadmau5 and RL Grime. Deadmau5 hasn't played Dallas since he last played LAN in 2013.
"He hasn't really played a club tour in seven or eight years. He only plays major, major music festivals," LAN co-founder Scott Osborn told the Observer in June. "So to be able to have him come to what we consider our boutique music festival, on Saturday on New Years Eve in Dallas, is incredibly exciting for us."
Tickets are available at lightsallnight.com.
