Lights All Night, the largest end-of-the-year music festival in Texas and throughout the Southern United States, is excited to officially announce Phase 1 of the music lineup for this year’s two-day music event, which is set to return to Dallas Market Hall on Friday and Saturday, December 29 and 30 of New Year’s Eve weekend. Two-day GA and VIP tickets are on sale now at www.lightsallnight.com.

This year’s festival will welcome back two of today’s biggest EDM heavyweights for a truly memorable two-day year-end celebration. Lights All Night (LAN) will play host to festival alumni Bassnectar, who released part one of his new Reflective EP in June with the second half scheduled for release later this year, and Porter Robinson (dj set), who is rumored to be working on the highly-anticipated follow-up to his debut album, Worlds, which will hopefully drop before the end of the year.

Additional performers feature a mix of both nationally recognized and up-and-coming acts in both EDM and hip-hop, including Illenium, who is currently prepping for the release of his new album, Awake, slated for release later this summer; Seven Lions, who continues to perform in support of his Creation EP, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Electronic Albums chart last year; Ugly God, who was recently named to XXL’s “2017 Freshman Class”; and Miami-based rapper Smokepurpp, one of the leaders in today’s “soundcloud rap” movement. Other key acts set to perform include AC Slater, Destructo, Drezo, and TOKiMONSTA, as well as a live set from Ookay. CARLYLE, DEVAULT, Niko The Kid, Vincent and Whipped Cream also help to round our Phase 1 of the 2017 lineup.

Additionally, Lights All Night and several of the performing artists on this year’s lineup have agreed to a unique partnership to provide a specially-priced ‘Houston Relief Pass,’ of which a portion of proceeds from each ticket sold will be matched and then go on to support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. This special ticket, which will be available for roughly one week beginning today at LightsAllNight.com, costs just $10 more than the original ticket price of $109. For example, if a patron opts to purchase this special ticket, their $10 donation will then be matched with an additional $10 from the festival and another $10 from each of the 7 participating artists – a total donation of $90 per ticket. The proceeds of this campaign will be donated directly to the Houston Food Bank – for which the organization states on its website, “every dollar donated to the Houston Food Bank provides the equivalent of three meals for an individual.” This added $10 will then be matched by the festival team, as well as by each of the following individual artists: Bassnectar, Porter Robinson, Illenium, Seven Lions, Ookay, Drezo and Tokimonsta.

Fans at the 2017 year-end event can expect an unforgettable weekend filled with awe-inspiring performances and top-of-the-line production for a truly memorable start to 2018. This year’s event will mark a return to Dallas Market Hall near downtown Dallas, Texas, which first played host to LAN last year, receiving rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Similar to last year, LAN will include two large outdoor areas, as well as some of the best food vendors in the DFW area and multiple free water stations throughout the expanded facility.

Two-day GA and VIP tickets are on sale now at www.lightsallnight.com. Weekend GA passes are available for purchase for just $109, while VIP passes cost $219. VIP passholders get the utmost festival-going experience at LAN with perks including preferred viewing areas, expedited entry, exclusive VIP bars, private restroom facilities, onsite event hosts, and more. Interested ticket buyers are encouraged to act now, as supply is limited and ticket prices will increase as the festival date approaches.

LAN celebrated its seventh event last NYE weekend with a second consecutive year at Dallas Market Hall and more than 40,000 fans in attendance at the two-day event in Dallas. In 2016, LAN once again offered festival-goers of all ages access to some of the most sought-after electronic acts across the globe, including headliners Zedd, deadmau5, Above & Beyond, NERO (DJ Set), Tchami, and RL Grime, along with special guest A$AP Ferg.

Additional details surrounding the eighth annual event in 2017 will be announced in the coming weeks, including Phase 2 of the music lineup, single-day tickets, and the daily performance schedule, as well as the lineup of vendors, merchants, and visual artists slated to be onsite throughout the two-day weekend.
