New Year’s Eve is one of the widest celebrated events in the world and companies like Insomniac know how to do it right. Their third installment of Countdown in Southern California recently announced it’s tremendous lineup of eclectic artists as well as the VIP amenities available this year.
Having attended last year’s Countdown and experiencing the wonders of the VIP section on top of what was there for the general public was mindblowing. This year’s event has been expanded to encompass two days of madness where VIP attendees will have access to two different viewing areas, complimentary cocktails and champagne as well as a beauty bar. There will be a DIY hot chocolate bar, plenty of comfortable seating and an area to body paint so you can take a picture in the photo booth. I will say my favorite part of last year’s VIP area was the hot chocolate and smores bar so I’m excited to see the new additions.
The lineup is probably the only thing better than the the VIP area that is sure to be popping. This year, given the extra day expansion, features a wide variety of artists new and old to ring in the new year. Among current favorites like Nghtmre and Joyryde are some hidden throwback gems like Rabbit in the Moon. Scope the full lineup below.
