The Top Five EDM Parties on New Year's Eve

1. OMFG! NYE at the San Diego Sports Arena

San Diego and it's promoters LED Presents are growing with the surge of dance music aficionados in SoCal. This year they have outdone themselves with a two day NYE festival packed with some of the biggest EDM artists of the moment. Sunday's event features acts like Calvin Harris, Nero, Nervo, Kill the Noise and Audrey Napoleon while the Monday NYE line-up is just as good with Laidback Luke, Hardwell, Zedd, Dillon Francis, Clockwork, Baauer and TJR. That's a lot of house, electro, moombahton, dubstep and trap to ring in the new year with a bang! Two day tickets are still available for $160 (that's only a couple Jacksons more than White Wonderland) or you can purchase single day tickets for each day respectively. Yes we know this is an 18 and over event, but aren't most EDM massives? If the music is right and the promoters know how to throw a good party (which LED has proven) this is just the type of event most EDM lovers would expect in the hay days of Together As One and such.

White Wonderland is going to be a way better party than LED OMFG. Better talent, better venue WITH 21+,and its actually in OC not san diego. If youre still butthurt about kaskade last year, then get over yourself. His reasoning for not making an appearance is actually legitimate. Wherever you go, just shut up and HAVE FUN.



America's number 1 DJ doing an 8+ hour solo set at Avalon where the party will be going long after the top 5 have shut down.   

I wouldn't have put White Wonderland in the top 5 either.   Seriously, Dash opening at 6:30 and Ferry following is a slap in the face to all who thought they'd have them for the NYE drop.  

AnB is all that is saving this show from being an epic disaster.   Hope there's no flight issues like there was last year with Kaskade!  


Glad we are able to make the top two parties on this list.. but my heart belongs with I <3 Techno for sure. Wish Insomniac just combined this with WW and add a tech stage!


love the picture with benassi pvd and nigel. real legends worthy of my time and ears on nye
