Fremont Street Experience is the Place to Be on New Year’s Eve

November 17, 2016

Rock in the New Year at “America’s Party Downtown” at Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas.

We’re starting the New Year’s party early, on Dec. 29, with non-stop action and entertainment, including live music on three stages, a brand new Viva Vision light show featuring Green Day and an electrifying digital display experience never before seen at Fremont Street Experience.

New Year's Eve Las Vegas

Downtown Las Vegas is ready to rock your world for New Year’s weekend.

Join the ultimate New Year’s Eve street party on Dec. 31, 6:00 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. Tickets are just $40. Get tickets now.

Our New Year’s Eve festivities will culminate in a must-see digital display from AG Production Services, the producers of events such as the Super Bowl, the Electric Daisy Carnival and Life is Beautiful festivals.

For the first time ever, guests can fly into the New Year in style with the purchase of a party package featuring the world’s ultimate zipline, SlotZilla.

SlotZilla New Year's Eve

When you ride on the SlotZilla zip line, you are the show!

Party guests will enjoy live performances from the city’s most talented bands, playing all the covers fans know and love.

Acts include Empire Records, ’80s Station, Spandex Nation, EDM Dancing DJs, Blue String Theory, Yellow Brick Road, Alter Ego, Voo Doo Cowboys, Garage Boys, Tony Marques and Zowie Bowie. (See below for the New Year’s Eve band schedule.)

New Year’s Eve guests will also be treated to the premiere of a new Viva Vision light show featuring Green Day, “Revolution Vegas.”

The five-time Grammy Award-winning artists will premiere a six-minute compilation show with their songs “Bang Bang,” “Good Riddance” and “Holiday.”

Green Day Fremont Street

With their Viva Vision light show, Green Day joins an exclusive club (along with Tiesto, Imagine Dragons and others). See the full schedule of Viva Vision light shows in our event calendar.

Revelers will bid farewell to 2016 with a year-in-review light show and midnight countdown led by Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman.

  • Reggie

    Just wondering why such a genre excluded band line up? I do not really so much old school or even Motown or hip hop or caliente or even Reggae?

  • Susie

    I’m staying downtown…do I still need to purchase a ticket? We are right on Freemont street.

    • sroeben

      Yes, a ticket is required. Although, make sure to check with your hotel. In the past, some have provided tickets as part of their room packages.

  • Melia Gulde

    Will the Green Day video still play after New Year’s Eve? And, if so, through what date? Thank you!

    • sroeben

      Yes, the new show will go into our rotation, indefinitely.

  • Jerry

    Just wondering why there were no fireworks under the canopy on NYE?
    The last time we were here we really enjoyed them. This year nobody on the street could see them. Sad deal

    • sroeben

      Sorry about that! We went a different direction this year, with smoke and lasers and a new stage and all that. If you’re voting for fireworks, we’ll certainly make that opinion known, but we love changing things up. The Plaza did have fireworks after our midnight celebration, but as you said, folks would have to know that and make their way to Main Street to see them.

  • Lori

    Did the year in review light show happen and what time did it begin? We were so disappointed this year to either miss it or it not happen. Had trouble getting out the doors of Golden Nugget. Very incompetent security not letting people out the doors and screaming at us all!!!

    • sroeben

      We had some special entertainment this year, so it was shown at 11:00 p.m. Sorry about that! Trying to get it on the YouTubes for posterity.
