Lights All Night reveals initial lineup for pre-NYE Dallas festival

Lights All Night organizers today revealed the initial lineup for their pre-NYE festival, set for Dec. 27 and 28 at the Dallas Convention Center.

Unlike most lineup announcements, the day-by-day and two-stage breakdown was included today. And with the caliber of talent presented, either stage could be considered a “main” stage.

Perfomers on Friday, Dec. 27 include Deadmau5 (unhooked), Fedde Le Grand, Carnage, Icona Pop, The Knocks, Fergie (DJ), Krewella, Grizmatik, Zomboy, Le Castle Vania, Herobust, and David Starfire.

The lineup on Saturday, Dec. 28 brings Kaskade, Nicky Romero, R3hab, DJ Bl3nd, Kill Paris, Matisse & Sadki, WishFM, Above & Beyond, Major Lazer, A-Trak, Paper Diamond, Dirtyphonics, and Nom De Strip.

One clarification — the Fergie set to perform on Friday is Irish DJ Robert William Ferguson, not Black Eyed Peas singer Stacy Ann Ferguson.

More artists will soon be announced.

Early bird tickets are on sale now, beginning at $125 for a two-day GA pass, or $79 for single-day tickets.

This year’s Lights All Night differs from the previous edition with its move back to the Convention Center, a reduction to two days instead of three, and a date change to the weekend prior to New Year’s Eve instead of being hosted on the actual holiday.

Last week, the festival announced it would also expand to Mexico City this year, with a Lights All Night event planned there on Dec. 31.
