Lightning in a Bottle to Electric Forest, Future World to Okachobee the festival gods have provided well for the music worshipers. With Christmas only a day behind us it’s only natural to start looking towards the new year. And with that comes the great debate “Where will you be when the ball drops?” New Years 2016 is posing to be a pretty stout party night with so many options available this year. But, only a few stick out to CMF.
The big party in town is undeniably REACT PRESENTS the REACTION NEW YEARS up in Rosemont. The line up is huge and one hell of a way to blow away 2015. Whether you catch Deadmau5, Chvrches, and Bonobo on the 30th or go into the new year with Skrillex, Chance the Rapper, and Autograf (or both) prepare to spend a few hundred if you are making a date of it. The two night event is more like a mini festival than a one night blowout. With hundreds of people exiting at the same time taking an Uber home might not be worth the hassle. If not that’s ok, the venue is close enough to the Blue line.
If large and out of control isn’t your speed or you just want to keep away from the tourist driven shindigs, there are a few other classy options available OUTFIT, GOMASSIVE, and BAM CREATES are throwing a all premium open cocktail bar at SMOKEY HOLLOW NYE featuring KAJENDR and Jordan V. The space and decor will provide an elegant back drop with an edge as BAM is known to spare no expense when it comes to detail oriented entertainment and visuals. The party will be a pretty penny for some but if you are with a decent sized party crew then for what and who you will see, consume, and take home this NYE party just might prove a topper to the already successful year for this promo group.
Now for those of you want to go underground and get your dance on then REVERSE Events is hosting an underground three floor dance party ZERO-DAY NYE in one of Chicago’s more infamous but well known sound studios Baseline ( the Old Riff) in the south loop. This party will hold three floors flooded with heavy hitting house music from a number major local acts featuring Inphinity, Dustin Sheridan, Twitchin Skratch and headlining with Cocodrills. This HO– USE will be going looooooooong after the ball drops making it perfect for you major night owls that like to see the sunrise before you decide to go home.
