It’s nearing the end of 2019, and that only means one thing for Dallas ravers. The Lights All Night (LAN) Festival is fast approaching.
The annual event is a much loved Dallas tradition that helps celebrate the end of the year. But this time around is extra special because it’s LAN’s ten year anniversary. Hailed as a ‘futuristic music experience like no other’, nearly 30,000 guests will travel from miles away to get the weekend of a lifetime.
The two-day event will take place in Dallas Market Hall, near downtown Dallas, on the 27 and 28 of December.
The music lineup offers a diverse mix of talent across all genres of EDM. The 50+ acts will perform across two stages, giving Dallas ravers a party to remember. Headliners include Lights All NightAlumni Skillrex and Bassnectar along with Louis The Child and Virtual Self.
The mood is often described as totally ‘out of this world’. Coined as both a ‘visual’ and ‘visceral’ experience, the lights and sounds will transport ravers to another dimension. World-class DJ’s, lightshow artists, and many other creatives come together to make this event truly innovative and special.
Reviews of Lights All Night have been consistently positive over the years. Once guests enter, they will find fire pits, acrobats, dancers, food trucks, bars, and plenty of space to explore. The silent disco is always a hit as well. Wearing their brightest rave clothing, guests are free to dance, mingle, and be themselves amidst this magical environment.
With this year’s anniversary celebration, the production quality is bound to be bigger and better than ever before.
