Insomniac’s annual Countdown NYE event…


…was hosted at the usual NOS Event Center for the 18+ with plenty of bar to go around for the drinkers as this event had a space-like themed of ‘Rize Of The Ravebotz’. Over a two-day affair, the New Years in SoCal did not bring pleasant weather as New Year’s Eve brought plenty of rain to fill a deserted lake, nonetheless, this was not going to stop the masses as we still managed to have fun. Countdown NYE attracted a diverse group of people, both within and outside of the rave community. The first day of the event seemed to be packed with people who were eager to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Despite the heavy rain on the second day, the attendees of Countdown NYE continued to celebrate and ring in the new year. This showed their resilience and determination to enjoy the event despite the weather conditions.

It is important to note that such events often have unpredictable weather conditions, and it is crucial to be prepared and flexible to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. It is commendable that people were polite and considerate towards each other while navigating through the crowds, especially during a challenging time like heavy rain. It is important to prioritize safety and respect others’ personal space in such situations.

The music in all was great for those who were able to make it to their set like legend Deadmau5 who made it sure to prove why he is still on top of his game with a progressive set covering the old such as Ghosts N Stuff with some current ones. The lineup for Countdown NYE looked impressive, with a variety of notable artists in the lineup. It is unfortunate that some artists were unable to make it to their sets, but it is great to hear that the event organizers made up for it by including a rare back-to-back set with SLANDER and Sullivan King.

This shows that the organizers were able to adapt to the situation and still provide an enjoyable experience for the attendees. It is also great to hear that each artist brought their A-game to the event, despite the limited variety of genres. This highlights the importance of having high-quality performances and ensuring that each artist is able to showcase their talent to the best of their abilities

Overall, the ability of the attendees to adapt to the circumstances and continue to enjoy the event is a testament to their positive attitude and spirit. Insomniac Countdown NYE offers a unique and exciting way for EDM fans to celebrate the New Year with like-minded individuals. It’s a chance to experience top-notch production value and music from some of the biggest names in the industry.
