The event will be held at Pechanga Arena San Diego and will feature a lineup of must-see artists including Cash Cash, Dabin, Dillon Francis, JVNA, and Zeds Dead, just to name a few. OMFG! NYE spans two days with tickets for both the 30th and the 31st.


Higher state of consciousness


8. Higher State of Consciousness. Now, if I was to go by the DJ lineup alone, I would put all my money on Josh Wink. Back in the day, any DJ worth his turntables would drop his “Don’t Laugh” or “How’s Your Evening So Far” and send the crowd into a ecstatic frenzy. Now, this New Year’s, the bass line will rumble in a downtown venue as he plays a live set to bring the New Year in on the right foot. Kudos to Bang Bang for having the vision to focus on the music and when the clock strikes twelve, I hope everyone will reach a Higher State of Consciousness.
