By AXS Staff
At long last, 2020 will soon come to an end. Although many are used to spending New Year’s Eve in big venues amongst giant crowds, with endless beverages and throbbing bass, current conditions have made the usual programming all but impossible. While the in-person experience remains on pause, we can still channel the energy of celebration and hope through the many incredible livestream events taking place on the 31st.
Whether you are interested in a low-key (but hilarious) comedy event or a night of euphoric DJ sets, a K-Pop festival or the rollicking thrums of laser harp, there’s a virtual New Year’s Eve experience with your name on it. Check out AXS’ NYE picks to ensure your transition into the New Year is one to remember.
