A new EDM festival from Insomniac, the organizer of the Electric Daisy Carnival, will debut on the Las Vegas Strip and in L.A., simultaneously, on December 30 and 31.

Forever Midnight will feature Solumun, ANOTR, Eric Prydz, Sofi Tukker, Kyle Walker, and others, with all headliners playing both cities to celebrate New Year’s Eve. The Vegas venue is the new LV FestPark, the space left behind by the abandoned Transfix and Enchant art and light displays behind Resorts World.
