The largest and longest running electronic dance music festival in Texas, Lights All Night, is preparing for its 11th edition this weekend. The New Year's Eve celebration will be held on December 30th and 31st at the Dallas Market Hall, a spacious and innovative warehouse-style space just minutes outside of downtown Dallas.
We're here to help you learn everything you need to know to navigate the festival all weekend, including COVID-19 logs, daily schedules, travel, and more.
The organizers have asked that the participants get vaccinated. Legally, they cannot ask for proof of vaccination to enter the venue, but they strongly recommended vaccination to follow health guidelines.
"LAN needs every event visitor to make their contribution and, above all, to be respectful of others and to do the right thing," says a statement on the festival website. “The current health situation offers a challenging backdrop for the 11th edition of LAN. Of course, we would love everyone to come to the festival this year and carry on the great end-of-year traditions that make the event special for so many, but we understand some will hesitate. We ask those who attend to do this because they are willing to follow our health guidelines – not because it is required, but because it is the right thing to do. "
LAN organizers also ask attendees to bring their own mask, but if you forget they will have a supply at the gates.
