TRVSDJAM to perform for NYN simultaneous New Year’s Eve celebration that spans 10 cities, four time zones and the Internet at NewYearsNation.com
LOS ANGELES – December 1, 2008 – New Year’s Nation (NYN), a high-end events and promotions company that leverages technology to create simultaneous social experiences for young professionals in major markets around the country, today announced its nationwide New Year’s Eve party that will span 10 cities and four time zones – and also be broadcast online at www.NewYearsNation.com.
Travis Barker and DJ AM (TRVSDJAM) will reunite on stage to headline the NYN celebration live from NYN’s Los Angeles New Year’s Eve Party at The Lot. The TRVSDJAM set will be streamed live in high-definition (HD) quality on the Internet at newyearsnation.com, and broadcast live to NYN parties across the U.S. through NYN-TV, a live, HD quality broadcast powered by BitGravity, a Content Delivery Network (CDN) for interactive broadcast. Through NYN-TV, guests at NYN parties in Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, New York City, Portland and Seattle will be able to see TRVSDJAM’s performance and dance to their music.
“I’m glad our first show back is here in LA on New Year’s Eve. I’ve never been 10 places at once before,” said DJ AM.
“I’m ready to get back on stage with AM and continue to rock the house. I’m very excited to bring in the New Year in my hometown of LA,” said Travis Barker.
The concept of the nationwide, simultaneous party was born in 2006, when NYN CEO Jann Yogman hosted the first NYN New Year’s Eve party in five U.S. cities. This year, NYN will link ten parties in Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, Portland and Seattle.
“On the biggest party night of the year, people deserve a high-class experience without the hassles that are normally associated with New Year’s Eve,” said Yogman. “New Year’s Nation does New Year’s Eve right. We secure amazing venues and first-class entertainment, provide easy access to food and drinks, and connect thousands of partygoers all across the nation.”
Live footage from NYN celebrations around the nation will be featured on ESPN during the “Red Bull: New Year, No Limits.” New Year’s Eve event in Las Vegas beginning at 11:00 p.m. ET / 8:00 p.m. PT on December 31.
For partygoers attending one of the NYN events, NYN’s attention to detail and commitment to creating an unforgettable, entertaining and hassle-free evening sets it apart from all other New Year’s Eve parties. The party will feature:
• Pre-sold, all-inclusive tickets sold to a number of guests that can fit comfortably in the venue – no packed spaces, velvet ropes or lines that wrap around the block.
• On-site entertainment from nationally known DJ’s, in addition to the TRVSDJAM set that will be streamed live to the nation.
• A guest-to-bartender ratio that ensures all attendees will have easy access to drinks.
• Gourmet passed hors d’oeuvres and food stations, champagne upon arrival and at Midnight.
