Insomniac never fails to impress their attendees, and this past New Year’s festival, Countdown, was nothing short of a great time. Countdown NYE was held at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, Calif. for two days of madness this past weekend, Dec. 30-31. This was Insomniac’s third annual Countdown NYE event and it brought together a crowd of 75,000 raging partygoers and awesome headliners on three massive, tented stages. The main focus of Insomniac’s attention goes to production value, including tons of eye-catching displays, performers. And PK Sound took charge of the bass this year!
The headliners at Countdown NYE included The Chainsmokers, Diplo, Valentino Khan, Zedd, Steve Aoki, Alesso, NGHTMRE, Ghastly, Troyboi, MakJ, Showtek, Morgan Page, Deorro, RL Grime, Baauer, Zomboy, Joyryde, San Holo, Kill The Noise, A-Trak, Anna Lunoe, Rezz, TC, and two back to back sets with Kayoh B2B Swage, and Blackface B2B Maze, with MC Dino hyping the crowd on the Bassrush stage. There were over 60 acts total, but these were the ones that really shined at the show.
Overall, Countdown NYE was an a great way to ring in 2017, and I can’t wait for Insomniac’s next major event in Southern California: Dreamstate Presents: Avalon and Liquid Soul at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles on Jan. 14, as well as Insomniac’s iconic Valentine’s themed event, Crush, in San Bernardino, San Francisco, Phoenix, and Dallas, on Feb. 11 and 18.
