Now that the confetti blast has settled and most of us have retreated from the Hyatt LAX and made our best attempt to get our liver back, it’s likely those post-Fantasy Ball blues are starting to sink in. It’s natural. The annual Indian NYE event becomes your night to remember surrounded by a community of Bollywood music lovers and an endless list of surprises scattered throughout the night at the Hyatt. It was a Fantasy Ball for the history books, and there are many reasons why we will never forget it. And since we still can’t stop talking about it, we figured it would be fun to go down memory lane that we like to call the Best of Fantasy Ball 2019.
Record Breaking Year
Nothing is more rewarding than that feeling when you bring in new faces to the events. Our New Year Party is for the community and now an annual tradition for desi’s, as Fantasy Ball drew in its biggest attendance in our humble history. Wow. And with that record-breaking headcount, we will try to bring you something fresh and grander this year.
Feeling the Red Carpet
Our guests were invited to walk the red carpet where a dazzling pattern of gold sequins and classy chiffon drapes hung from 10′ feet in the air creating an atmosphere like the Oscars that everyone was raving about all night long. On top of this red-carpet experience, we had a custom built Radio5 Events sign decked out with art decco lights. Custom built by our very own, Brenda and Richard.
While the balloon drops at Fantasy Ball remains a staple every year – this year, we went for the shock-and-awe approach to try our hand with a confetti blast to go along with the drop, which involved some crazy time-coding and programming from 3D Sounds that is far more complicated than we have time to detail here. What we can say, though, DJ Nitro from 3D Sounds dropped dance-floor hits like Saadi Gali, Ghungaroo and many more blood-rushing desi hits that got everyone feeling festive.
Keeping it Classy
Everyone in attendance was dressed like it was their last night on Earth. From 3 piece suits to festive dresses, this was a night to see and be seen. Oh and the crowd was absolutely epic. Whenever the DJ or Mandeep (Radio5 Events) instructed them to put their hands in the air and to jump, not a single person on the dance floor was shy. Everyone seemed to be on the same page—and when the music is booming and everyone is jumping in unison, we bet the neighborhood felt it too.
