This isn't a party for the weak. The party kicks off at 11PM on December 31 and goes all the way until midnight on January 1 of the new year, but with a line-up that is plenty enough to keep you on the dance floor for that long. Jimmy Edgar, Jacques Greene, Bwana and a handful of other worthy talents are taking us into 2017 at an undisclosed location in downtown LA.
