Insomniac is bringing the party to Southern California and Orlando, Florida this year. Countdown New Year’s Invasion 3.0 returns to the NOS Event Center in San Bernardino, California on December 31st and January 1st. Countdown Orlando Invasion will occur on the same dates at the Orlando Amphitheater. Both lineups are stacked with major and upcoming artists. Which one will you attend?
Countdown Southern California
The lineup for So Cal includes Kai Wachi, Mitis, RL Grime, Saymyname, Subtronics, Kayzo, Jason Ross, and a host of other DJs. This is one of my favorite events. I went in 2019 and it was awesome. There are multiple stages, alien entertainers running wild, and so many activities to see and do. Insomniac knows how to throw an alien-themed party. It will blow your mind. If you haven’t purchased tickets yet, you can head over to the ticketing website here. Tier three tickets are 80% sold out, so I recommend getting your tickets fast. General admission two-day tickets start at $159.99 and VIP starts at $269.99.
The NOS Event Center is a beautiful venue that is perfect to ring in the new year. I’d suggest dressing warm because it will be a high of 67 degrees and a low of 41 degrees. We have a lot of cute outwear that will keep you warm and cozy during the two days. I will be wearing my Kai Wachi jersey with a long sleeve underneath and some black flare pants for day one. Day two I am wearing our Holo Star Mesh Bell Bottoms with a long sleeve crop top. The iHeartRaves website has so many different pants to choose from that will be perfect to ring in the new year.
Countdown Orlando Invasion
Artists like Adventure Club, Gryffin, Flosstradamus B2B Nitti Gritti B2B Valentino Khan, Madeon, and Sullivan King will be performing. This is Florida’s first invasion and I don’t think it will be the last. There will be multiple stages at this event that will no doubt have tons of lasers and lights to transport you to another planet. The weather for the event is looking at a high of 71 degrees and a low of 50 degrees. It would be best to prepare for both. Bring light outerwear along with some cute pants and you should be set.
The Orlando Invasion website has tons of information regarding travel, hotels, airports, parking, and of course tickets. You can head over to the ticketing website here for more information. Two day general admission starts at $129.99 and VIP starts at $149.99.

It’s almost time to leave 2021 behind and start fresh. What better way to do that than with your rave fam listening to great music and hanging with some extraterrestrials. Both events are just three weeks away, so the time to prepare is now. Don’t forget to explore. Countdown has so many activities and places to see throughout the venue. There’s so much more to do than just listen to music. Stay warm, safe, and Happy New Year!
