And now we have the whole picture. Lights All Night Fest has been slowly rolling out the details of its fifth-annual, year-end dance music bash to be held at Dallas Convention Center on December 26 and 27. Last month it unveiled the headliners, which were no slouches as far as EDM goes these days: Skrillex headlines the first night of music, while the second is topped off by Armin Van Buuren and Disclosure.
As of early this afternoon, LAN has announced the entirety of the 47-band lineup, including a new co-headliner for the first night. (Sorry, Skrillex. You'll have to share the spotlight.) That new co-headliner is none other than Zedd. Check out the rest of the acts after the break.
Other artists announced today include Zed's Dead, the Chainsmokers and Nick van House, plus local DJs like Demarkus Lewis and Trill Wave. All in all, it should be a great lineup for anyone looking to dance the end of the year out in style. It also marks a substantially larger lineup than last year for an event that was already one of the biggest in North Texas, having drawn 40,000 people in 2013 with roughly half the number of artists they'll boast this year.
Tickets for the festival can be purchased at lightsallnight.com. The breakdown of which acts play which night has not been announced yet, but here is the lineup in its entirety:
