BTS Live Concert:

In April this year, the South Korean boy band BTS had to call off their world tour and have not played live since. This New Year’s Eve, they are back for the ARMY. The band’s management company, Big Hit, are arranging a huge show just outside Seoul, featuring not only BTS, but other K-Pop artists like NU’EST, GFriend and ENHYPEN. Fans around the world will be able to tune in to the live concert via Weverse.

Tomorrowland’s Virtual Show:

EDM lovers can rejoice, as Tomorrowland will be hosting an online New Year’s Eve concert complete with all your favourite artists—Diplo, Martin, Snoop Dogg and more. You can watch the live stream here.

Rave to the Moon:

DJ Scruff and DJ Yoda will be playing from venues around the world. The Rave to the Moon from home, is a free charity at-home rave. The event organisers have decided the name, hoping for ravers to collectively step the dance to the moon (577 million steps). The person with the highest step count will win a prize.

Times Square Ball Drop:

Luckily, you can still watch the iconic Times Square ball drop that traditionally rings in the New Year. Times Square, in New York, will be shut down to the public, but the virtual event is on. You can live-stream a series of live performances from the square for free from early evening. American actor, Jonathan Bennett, will host the celebration, starting with the lighting and raising the hallowed ball. Click here for the live stream event.
