December 31st, 2022 marked the return of our Bollywood NYE party in Los Angeles at The Vermont Hollywood, one of our favorite times of the year. Yes, the New Year’s Eve party marks the official, end of year, but it’s also our last chance to Bollywood together on the dancefloor ringing in the New Year. Plus, it’s our way of kicking off the forthcoming 2023 season and sending cheers to new beginnings—the Radio5 way!
On Saturday, Dec. 31st 2022 presented a different NYE experience with an emphasis on new production value, fresh talent (DJ’s), stage design, and enhanced midnight ball drop. The result: amazing Bollywood music and a crazy countdown to Midnight in grand fashion.
Here’s the best of Fantasy Ball 2023. We’ll see you later this year for NYE!
Rainy With a Chance of Good Vibes
It was impossible not to constantly check the forecast in the week leading up to the New Year’s Eve. Everyone in LA swore it was going to come down like cats and dogs, and it did for about an hour or so, and the rain clouds danced in the distance long enough to keep the majority of the party drench free. The initial downpour didn’t seem to rain on anyone’s parade and guests came in full force bringing amazing vibes.
Mind-Blowing Visuals at Midnight
The visuals we had on stage was out of this world, and it felt like we were suspended in a world of fantasy. We couldn’t help but think that maybe, just maybe, our production team might be the missing link between man and machine. The video countdown lasted a minute which felt like an eternity and boy did the confetti showers did not disappointment. We can’t wait to do it again, bigger and crazier this year!
Radio5 Events Levels Up
Just 3 years ago, the pandemic crushed the nightlife industry and we were indoors with our pods wishing we were at a club ringing in New Year’s. We upped our game for the grand return on Dec. 31st and we couldn’t have asked for a better night with all of you – together finally. Thank you for trekking it in the rain for NYE, let’s do it again!
