At the Lights All Night electronic dance music festival, electronic music lovers will dance in the new year of 2013. On LightsAllNight.com Facebook page they said, “We are going to provide more than just a dance party, it’s going to be a celebration of music, food, drinks, art, performers, lights, sounds, love, and most important of all a celebration of LIFE!”
This year marks Lights All Night’s fifth year, and with each year the festival seems to get bigger and bigger. Last year’s New Year Eve festival was held at the Dallas Convention Center, where thousands of people gathered around three stages.

Lights All Night is planning for a huge crowd this year and has booked the 277-acre Fair Park for the 2012 New Year’s celebration.
The DJ lineup has still not been announced yet, “…but early rumors include Girl Talk (making a return appearance), Pitbull, and Armin Van Buuren,” according to Seatgeek.com. Last year Tiësto, RJD2, Diplo, Benny Benassi, Flux Pavilion and many other DJs filled the nights with electronic music.
For those thinking about going to this year’s Lights All Night but are a bit hesistant at the lack of lineup there is a video posted on the festival’s website, LightsAllNight.com, that will reassure you this is an experiene you won’t want to miss. The video highlights the 2011 event and features Tiesto, Diplo, Laidback Luke, Benassi, Girl Talk and Dada Life. The video also shows Jim Morrison from “The Doors,” and he talks about how “the new generation’s music … will rely heavily on electronics,” as noted on Pollstar.com.
