At no other time in the year, arguably, are the masses so united in celebration as when New Year’s Eve rolls around – a time of new beginnings, reflection and for some, resolution. It’s also a time to party like there’s no tomorrow, and one of the places to be this 31 December is Neon Countdown.
Back for a third year running, the scintillating event has relocated to the sprawling grounds of Sepang International Circuit where thousands are expected to gather for a night of pulsating music, luminous art and a dazzling array of special activities.
Having always prided itself on an A-list line up of artistes, festival goers this year will be treated to sets from some of the finest DJs on the circuit. Headlining the event is Dutch duo W&W, ranked No 14 on DJ Mag’s Top 100. They’ll be serving up an anthem-heavy menu of deep, progressive house and skull-cracking electro to keep you on your toes.
Joining them are the booming sounds of Maurice West, DJ Dimatik, Terrific TNT and many more, with sounds from the techno, dubstep, trap, and hard style stables. The old-school rave vibe will be strong here, so prepare to sweat!
As the name implies, Neon Countdown also comes packed with all manner of phosphorescent trimmings and glow-in-the-dark extras. Head for the Neon Garden to bask in fluorescent vines and UV flowers, and if you feel like donning some body paint to pop for the night, help yourself! Meanwhile, if you happen to be in the VIP Neon Skydeck, you’ll also be able to dig into a mouth-watering buffet.
So, have you decided where you’ll be when the ball drops this December? If you’re looking to bust out on the dancefloor and ring in the New Year with a party to remember, Neon Countdown is your place!
