An EDM festival that lives up to its name, Lights All Night Fest — the longest-running EDM festival in Texas — will return to Dallas in December for two nights of electronic music raves, New Year’s Eve celebrations, and sprawling LED light displays. This place has everything: DJs, neon, leather harnesses, women in spandex one-pieces, men in spandex one-pieces and glow-in-the-dark hula hooping. Housed in Dallas Market Hall, a massive indoor convention space, artists are split up between four stages around the venue: Intergalactic, Planet Prime, Galaxy Disco, and Supernova.
Lights All Night 2023 has pulled considerable acts in the EDM scene including Skrillex, an artist known even outside of the scene, in addition to Peekaboo, Subtronics, Acraze and many more. Like nearly every EDM festivals, Lights All Night centers itself around both music and art, and bright pulsing displays of color fill the venue every year. An art installation by John Stephens and Hyacinth Belcher called “The Kinetic Balls,” has appeared multiple times and lights up the main hall with color-changing orbs floating over the crowd during performances.
