For the seventh year, Grand Park + The Music Center’s N.Y.E.L.A. will be the go-to central gathering place in Los Angeles as the West Coast’s flagship New Year’s celebration! 

Free for all ages and expanded to include The Music Center Plaza, this unique civic event brings together Angelenos and visitors from around the globe to usher in 2020 at L.A.’s biggest music and dance party on December 31, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. 

Starring L.A.’s best DJs and bands, this singular event will also feature its signature 3-D video projection and light show on the west side of the iconic City Hall designed by L.A.-based digital innovation studio yU+co. This year’s theme is “Who is LA 2020?” and will feature joyful and timeless images of our beautiful Angeleno community. 

There will be two stages of simultaneous performances, including the largest reggaeton party crew, Gasolina, and Compton-based Banda Las Angelinas with more acts to be announced. Party-goers will also enjoy an array of on-site food trucks serving up various culinary delights available for purchase, plus pyrotechnics to ring in the New Year!

This will be an alcohol-free, family-friendly event; no beer garden or point of purchase. No alcohol is permitted in the event space.
