The NYELA Event will go virtual in 2021 with Steve Aoki set to perform. The ‘Grand Park’s NYELA’ will be held virtually due to COVID 19, of course.
So we have to stay at home to celebrate the end of the year 2020, but with virtual parties. At least Los Angeles plans to make a multicultural celebration for this special moment with Steve Aoki.
Grand Park’s NYELA partnered with Steve Aoki’s Latin label Dim Mak En Fuego to celebrate the virtual countdown party. DJ Eddie One and Jessica Flores will host the event. Steve Aoki will play through the eagerly anticipated countdown to the end of this miserable horrible year.
“The world is ready to turn up this New Year’s Eve! And I’m excited to celebrate with The Dim Mak En Fuego family and partner with Grand Park and Fuse to ring in the new year, around the world, in a whole new way, with music that transcends languages and cultures”Steve Aoki in an statement
Aoki also curated the talent for the NYELA party, which includes the Mexican R&B Group AQUIHAYAQUIHAY, the Venezuelan singer Andrekza, and a guest performance by BIA. Gasolina Party’s 2DEEP will fill time between sets by mixing beats.
“We are so excited to work with the legendary Steve Aoki and his visionary line-up of established artists and emerging talent — viewers will be dancing the whole time. “As well, in true Grand Park fashion, the program will balance these great performances with special segments throughout the show to honor the strength and character of Angelenos and share more about L.A. with the world“Grand Park director Julia Diamond
The free event usually attracts thousands of assistants to the heart of downtown L.A. for a festive night of music, art installations, food trucks, and light show. This year it will be different from a live transmission in this place to many homes.
The Steve Aoki NYELA event takes place starting at 11 p.m. PST on Dec. 31 and can be viewed on Fuse, the Fuse YouTube channel, Grand Park’s digital channels, and on “The Music Center Offstage.”
