Don’t you just wish you could attend every festival? I swear every year more new events get announced that give me the worst FOMO if I’m not able to go. However, all of this has definitely taught me how to prioritize which events mean the most to me, and do what I can to get myself to those festivals above everything else. There are a lot of factors that I take into account when choosing which festivals to attend each year, as I’m sure there are for most people. However, if we’re being totally honest, I usually know right when I hear a festival/lineup announcement is made whether or not I’ll be in attendance.
So was the case for Lights All Night this year. I’d been hearing about Lights All Night since I started raving three years ago, but had always ended up somewhere else come New Year’s weekend. However, this year I decided that I’m going to make the trip out to Dallas Market Hall on December 28th-29th to finally experience this festival. Here are the three main reasons why I made the decision, and why you should too!
1. The Lineup Is Incredible
2. The Festival Is Over the Weekend

3. It's a Texas Festival that Has Stood the Test of Time
It’s no secret that Texas has been in a drought, in terms of festivals, these last couple of years. Multiple major Texas festivals have shut down recently, and there weren't very many options in Texas this year. This is such a shame because I know Texas has a strong and diverse electronic music community, and they definitely deserve some larger and better events. Lights All Night is one of the festivals that has remained a solid part of the Texas rave scene for several years now, so that has to mean it’s successful and worth checking out!
Trying out new festivals and experiencing incredible music in new places are a few of my favorite things to do, and I can’t wait to spend my last weekend of the year doing exactly that!
