Grand Park’s NYELA, powered by The Music Center, will ring in the new year by honoring the resilience of Los Angeles County and, in particular, those who gave us hope during 2020 with a live one-hour special broadcast and streaming event. While Grand Park’s NYELA will be closed to the public this year, Grand Park will still hold a live event for a special by-invitation-only audience of City and County frontline and essential workers; the program, which will feature joyful musical performances and Grand Park’s signature video projection countdown, will be broadcast on Fuse and livestreamed on Grand Park’s YouTube channel, providing the opportunity for people around the country and around the globe to experience the park’s grand-scale New Year’s Eve celebration.

In line with Grand Park’s commitment to featuring L.A.-based talent reflective of the “park for
everyone,” Grand Park’s NYELA will feature a dynamic line-up of performances beginning with the Afro-Dominican rhythms of songstress Esty, followed by the R&B-influenced alt-hop beats of South L.A.’s DUCKWRTH. A Latin icon for alternative electronic music worldwide and known for popular hits such as “Mas,” “Hasta Quemarnos” and “Soun Tha Mi Primer Amor,” Kinky will close out the hour-long program with a high-energy set. Dropping dance beats in back-to-back DJ sets, Peanut Butter Wolf, founder of independent Stone Throw Records, and J.Rocc, one of the original turntablists, will keep the party atmosphere going between main stage performances. The celebration will culminate with Grand Park’s signature midnight countdown created in a new partnership with Xitelabs out of Calabasas, featuring an exciting showcase of stunning 3D graphics and light shown on the iconic Los Angeles City Hall building. The midnight countdown show will meet the special moment of ringing in the new year in person for the invited guests as well as for the larger home audience watching online with the themes of hope, perseverance, action, bravery, boldness, positivity and unity.

Viewers can tune in or log on to the flagship West Coast countdown celebration on Friday,
December 31, 2021, from 11:00 p.m.–12:01 a.m. PT / 2:00 a.m.–3:01 a.m. ET January 1, 2022, to watch on Fuse (check local listings) or stream on Grand Park’s YouTube channel (@GrandParkLosAngeles).
