Lights All Night is an end of the year, three night electronic music festival that takes place at Fair Park in Dallas, Texas. The event itself pulls in thousands of raging fans to its doorstep every year, with it a line up of artists that is truly amazing and highly talented. LAN 2012 was no different, the festival brought in thousands of fans, and some amazing artist for each day. The event itself had four venues where the artists performed. There was the Main stage, which was an open stage covered by a tent. Then there was The Hanger, which was a closed building with a stage and many stalls of vendors selling glow sticks, glasses etc. The other venues were much smaller and both outdoors with a small stage for the artists – those were Club @ LAN and the Fountain stage.
Lights All Night 2012- Night One!
This is the end of night 1 of Lights All Night, it began at 4pm and went on till about midnight (excluding after parties). The festival itself was made alive with the blasting beats of the artists and the wonderfully colorful fans. Although the night in general was quite cold, the fans were not brought down by it all. Men and women alike were dressed in their colorful outfits as if it was a warm Texas night. All of the artists performed great, hyping up the fans and kicking the first day off with a positive note.
Lights All Night 2012 – Night Two!
This ended another amazing night of Lights All Night, this day too was from 4pm to midnight. Like night one, the day was a cold one but fans took the event by storm and danced the night away. The performances were just as amazing as the night before, the bass beating to the rhythm of their hearts, elating the thousands of fans. The artists were feeding off of the fans, making them enjoy the show as well. Each artist had their own flavor and beat which made each of the performances feel like their own individual concert. All in all the night was success!
Lights All Night 2012 – Night Three!
3, 2, 1, Happy New Year! End to the final night of Lights All Night. The third and final day of Lights All Night did have a rocky start with threats of rain on the horizon but lucky for the fans that did not happen. The third day was again from 4pm but went till 12:30am, with Axwell on the Main stage counting down till midnight and fans hugging and kissing while balloons dropped on them. Again it was another successful night of music, fans and artist enjoyed the night to their hearts content, ending the year with the bangs of fireworks, the beating bass and fans cheering!
