In addition to this year’s expanded festival grounds, which will include three innovative stage designs, interactive art installations and playful costumed performers, Countdown will create the magic of New Years with a beautiful custom indoor ice skating rink. Fans can take a break between sets in the NOS Citrus building to enjoy a skate with friends while keeping warm in the surrounding lounge areas, equipped with heat lamps, delicious food options and refreshing beverages. The Citrus building will act as both a relaxing oasis and a hub for whimsical fun.
This year, the Countdown 21+ VIP experience has been completely reimagined, with offerings that have never been done at any Insomniac festival. While an exclusive viewing area and dance floor will be available at the Infinity stage, the Resolution stage will not only host an elevated VIP Viewing deck, but also an array of luxury amenities just for VIP guests. From 9-11 PM, the Resolution VIP area will offer fans complimentary NYE themed cocktails as well as a complimentary champagne toast at the stroke of midnight to ring in the New Year.
As the night cools down, The Grilled Cheese Truck, one of LA’s favorite food trucks, will help keep VIP guests warm with complimentary grilled cheese and tater tots served all night, with a cozy, heated VIP seating area to sit and enjoy these fresh eats. Guests can also visit the hot chocolate and s’mores dessert bar to satisfy their sweet tooth.
Kandi bracelet making, dedicated wifi, special photo opportunities, phone charging stations, complimentary parking, rapid festival entry and more are all included in the Countdown VIP experience.
General admission and 21+ VIP tickets for Countdown are available now for $125 and $249, respectively, before service fees.
