N.Y.E.L.A 2018


– West Coast’s Flagship New Year’s Eve Event Features One-of-Kind Countdown to Midnight 
Inspired by the Imagination of L.A.’s Children –

– Aloe Blacc and Maya Jupiter to Headline the “Countdown Stage;” an All-Female DJ Lineup
to Perform on the “Get Down Stage” –

WHAT:  The sixth annual Grand Park + The Music Center’s N.Y.E.L.A., is expected to draw more than 50,000 people to the grand-scale, highly popular, free event that put Downtown Los Angeles on the map as home to the West Coast’s flagship New Year’s Eve celebration.  The alcohol-free, family-friendly event will cover 90 acres, from Grand Avenue to City Hall (Spring Street) and from Temple Street to 2nd Street.

The New Year’s Eve event will feature the theme LA DREAMS, a celebration that imagines the future of Los Angeles County through the collective thoughtfulness and creativity of its children.  Attendees will enjoy the work of Los Angeles County 5th graders, whose dreams inspired the event’s signature 3-D animated countdown to midnight filled with colorful artwork and inspirational language.  The evening’s entertainment includes a wide variety of musical performances on two stages including Aloe Blacc, Maya Jupiter and an all-female lineup of DJs featuring Spiñorita, Ericalandia and Kronika.
