Carl Cox is playing a New Year's Eve rave in Hawaii, with sets planned for both Wednesday December 31st 2019 and Thursday January 1st 2020.
The events mark 20 years since Cox was last in the US state. As part of BBC Radio 1's Millennium celebrations he played a midnight set on Bondi Beach in Australia before flying to Hawaii to do the same at Kakaako Waterfront Beach — taking full advantage of the International Dateline.
This time round he's set to play to 1,100 people at Republik, Honolulu, on the biggest night of the year. Attendees will be offered photo opportunities with the big man himself, along with one-off party favours. Come morning the action moves to a boat, which will sail around the island to a soundtrack provided by the legendary UK spinner, who won this year's DJ Mag Alternative Top 100 DJs powered by Beatport.
“Hawaii in 1999-2000 was absolutely amazing for me and I cannot wait to be back for New Year’s Eve! I promise not to stay away so long in the future," said Cox.
Those not lucky enough to live in the South Pacific might want to check Cox's plans to bring the MegaStructure stage back to Ultra Festival next year.
