As 2018 slipped away, my friends and I slipped into Aragon Ballroom
to see one of our favorite DJ duos, Galantis
, and celebrate the beginning of a new year the best way we knew how. We had been overwhelmed with what to do since there are an abundance of NYE events in Chicago, but we definitely picked the right choice. Amid a beautiful light show, Galantis performed an incredible set full of crowd favorites as well as never before heard songs they premiered for us.
As someone who loves high-energy music and dancing, it was one of the best NYE events I have attended and I intend on celebrating in a similar way next year. Being in Chicago for any holiday is exciting, but New Year’s in particular is one full of a range of opportunities and events for whatever you may be interested in doing. Tons of artists perform at venues across the city and surrounding suburbs, and there are plenty of other events such as fireworks at Navy Pier to suit your mood for the evening. Whether you want to sit back and watch a fireworks show, enjoy Zoo Year’s Eve at the Lincoln Park Zoo, or dance the night away, Chicago has something to fit everyone’s interests.
