It feels as if January was only last month, then all of a sudden, we’re already saying goodbye to 2019. For many, this is the time for celebration, vacation, and enjoying the company of their friends and family.

However, we suspect quite a few still don’t know what to do on the last night of the year. If you’re one of those people, or if you’ve decided to stay in Bangkok for the New Year, we’ve got a proposal for you.

Let’s get together at Leo presents NEON Countdown 2019 | META: The Rebellion of Neon Countdown, where ravers can wild out in the neon glow with EDM performances by a world-class lineup.

The music festival is taking place throughout two days on December 30-31, 2019 at SHOW DC Arena, Rama 9.

Just imagine what a thrill it would be to jump and dance among the concert crowd. On the stage are spectacular performances that you can hardly tear your eyes from. It’s a moment to remember, for sure, especially if you’re spending it with your closest friends.

Most importantly, you can’t miss out on this colossal countdown party if you want to welcome 2020 on a good note. So if you’re still on the fence about NEON Countdown 2019, here are six reasons why every reveler should celebrate the last night of 2019 at this music festival.

1. World-class Lineup that EDM Fans Can’t Miss!

NEON Countdown’s lineup is undoubtedly the main reason that EDM lovers flock to this two-day event without a second thought. Judging from the headliners alone, we can already see the party becoming a real blast!

Let’s kick off the list with DIMITRI VEGAS & LIKE MIKE – a Belgian duo made up of 38-year-old and 33-year-old brothers. They’ve just been named the #1 rankers on DJ Mag’s Top 100 in 2019.

The two have featured as headliners at international festivals like Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, EDC Las Vegas, Creamfields, and Mysteryland. And even though DIMITRI VEGAS & LIKE MIKE have performed in Thailand before, this show is guaranteed to be more awesome and exciting than ever.

The next headliner is an all-time favorite among ravers. Trance icon, Armin van Buuren, is a talented DJ, producer, and remixer who has been a pioneer in the electronic dance scene. He has remained among the top of the DJ Mag list since 2004 and even held the #1 spot for five consecutive rankings in 2007-2012.

Also on this phenomenal lineup are prominent DJs from the DJ Mag’s Top 100 2019, who have performed at other world-class festivals. First up is QUINTINO (#25), a Dutch DJ best known for “Go Hard”, “Epic”, and “Freak”.

VINI VICI (#31) is a DJ duo from Israel who produced “Great Spirit” in collaboration with Armin van Buuren. The track has been streamed over 69 million times on Spotify.

Then, get ready for a DJ from down under, WILL SPARKS (#57), voted Australia’s No.1 DJ in 2014. He has released many hits including “Bring It Back”, “Ah Yeah So What!”, and “Take Me”.

You’ll be seeing shows from Psytrance DJ, Ben Nicky, and Israelite rising star, Blastoyz, as well. Joining them is Valentino Khan, a notable DJ from OWSLA known for 2015 most streamed track, “Deep Down Low”. He’ll be turning up the party energy and get you dancing to hard-hitting trap, hardstyle, and dubstep.

And don’t worry about things starting out too slow; serving as the opening acts are Dimatik, Chukiess & Whackboi, Goldfish & Blink, and KRUNK, and Thailand’s very own Faahsai, the sole girl DJ of this event. Count on these high-energy dance tracks to heat up the stage so you can later dive into the main course you’ve been craving for.

Originated in Malaysia, NEON Countdown has seen overwhelming success with its previous installments. Now, it’s one of the country’s biggest music festivals. For the 2019 iteration, the festival is making its way to our nightlife hub of Bangkok.

Organizer NEON is working with META Music Festival to bring this grand event to Thai revelers. This year’s theme, Futuristic & Neon “Live Life Colorfully”, plays with the concept of music that transcends time. The event is ready to take festival-goers into the world of EDM beats and send the year off with the best countdown party in the city.

With a lineup full of EDM superstars, you wouldn’t expect to see all the highlights in one day. That’s why NEON Countdown 2019 is hosting the party throughout the last two days of the year on December 30-31, 2019.

Music lovers can enjoy EMD, trance, hardstyle, trap, and dubstep and send the year off with world-class DJs in this lively atmosphere. You’ll see smiles and laughter at every turn in the crowd.

We think most festival fans would agree that the production is one of the essential elements that keep things fun and exciting. Cutting-edge lights & sound systems, creative stage design, and mind-blowing special effects – these are what keep the party vibes going and get the crowd jumping along with the blood-pumping beats.

On that front, NEON Countdown will not disappoint. From what we’ve seen in previous years, both in Malaysia and Beijing, you can expect an out-of-this-world EDM sensation with stunning stage design and special effects like lasers and pyrotechnics.

What’s more, the firework display is something you should definitely look forward to. It’s promised to be a huge, explosive spectacle!

5. Glow-in-the-dark Selfies
