On December 26th and 27th, Dallas, TX held its fifth annual EDM festival – Lights All Night. The festival, for the past few years, has been held at the Dallas Convention Center and features giants of the EDM industry. This was another great year for Lights all night- this year they brought in some amazing artists paired with some newer talent as well. This wider variety of artists brings fans not just from Dallas, but from all over.
The convention center is a great venue for this festival – it’s indoors and the set up of the stages was well coordinated. There are two main stages and two smaller stages – both are “silent” stages where fans get to experience the artist’s music through Bluetooth headphones. And the venue can hold all the fans in a comfortable manner and gave them room to dance freely and not feel too cramped.
Both nights of the festival were quite successful, the artists were great and brought a lot of energy to the venue, and the stages design were set up very well. The lights were coordinated and synced with the music as well. Overall the show had another successful year. Concert goers have a lot to look forward to next year – perhaps another great set of artists!
