Lights All Night (LAN) celebrated its ninth annual event with a return to Dallas Market Hall in Dallas, Texas on Friday and Saturday, December 28 and 29 of New Year’s Eve weekend. LAN played host to over 30,000 total attendees across two days with a weekend full of music and live art.
Additionally, LAN took this year’s onsite art experience to new heights as it expanded upon previous experiential offerings to now feature more light installations, art, and entertainers onsite than ever before! This year’s experiential and visual art offerings included:
Sweet Tooth Hotel Lounge:
Dallas’ own Sweet Tooth Hotel team curated a special “Sweet Tooth Hotel Lounge” which included a dedicated onsite lounge for GA and VIP attendees that featured a curated selection of eye-popping immersive and visual art exhibits, which offered guests access to one of the most innovative art experiences in the country prior to the 2019 opening of their new permanent art space in nearby Victory Park.
Originally created in 2013 by artists Kyle McDonald and Jonas Jongejan, “Light Leaks” is a scattered array of 50+ disco-style mirror balls reflecting light from three different projectors, casting patterns that filled the attendees’ peripheral visions and created a curious space that alternated between a meditative state, and an uneasy imbalance.
Created last year in New Orleans by Rave PMG, “Fallen Stars” is an installation that consisted of independent metal stars overlayed on top of one another which collectively create a larger, unified star illuminated with various LED lighting.
Created by John Stephens and Hyacinth Belcher, fans sat (or danced) under an array of moving lights synched together through with a multitude of variations in color and movement.
