This NYE don't settle for something predictable and anticlimactic. We get it, with Christmas still in recent memory, there's often little time to make grand plans for the last party of the year — but Sydney's brand new December 31st festival has done the planning for you. NYE in the Park will ring in the new year with fireworks, a stellar line-up of international artists, great food and plenty of Champagne.
Headlining and hosting the inaugural festival is Hot Dub Time Machine, whose packed dance parties are oft described as a 'history lesson through music'. He'll count the crowd down to midnight before starting his epic chronological set — beginning with the rock tunes of the 50s, then travelling through the decades to the best dance hits of today. Also taking the stage will be Canadian electro and techo maestro Tiga, Jurassic 5 legend Chali 2NA, DJ Krafty Kuts and you — if you win our exclusive VIP package.
We're offering one lucky Concrete Playground reader the chance to win a New Year's Eve you'll never forget. You'll fire confetti and launch giant inflatable balls into the crowd, dance with Retrosweat aerobic dancers and pop Champagne with Hot Dub Time Machine at midnight — all on stage. Woah. It doesn't stop when you leave the stage, either — you'll be rubbing shoulders with Vera Blue, 2ManyDJs and other famed artists backstage (with complimentary drinks, of course).
When the festival is over, you'll have a double pass and priority entrance to an exclusive afterparty in an unannounced location — so you can continue dancing the night away. If there's a new year's eve you can't top, it's this.
