Lunar New Year celebration at Avant Gardner was the place to be to ring in the Year of the Dragon


The Year of the Dragon has officially begun, and Pulse Events‘ Lunar New Year event allowed festival-goers to spend two nights ringing it in at the thematically outfitted Avant Gardner. Each of the two stages were adorned with ornate decorations symbolizing prosperity, luck, and good fortune, creating a visually stunning backdrop for the performances to come.

The festival made the perfect use of the two parallel stages. On day one, the Great Hall was invaded by some bigger names on the EDM scene, including Remix and Trivecta. Slander headlined the night, playing to an audience of obvious long-time fans. The floor was packed full of energetic fans lost in the music and lights. Day two welcomed more big names, including Henry Fong and 4YU. Alan Walker headlined the night. The energy was non-stop and the excitement was palpable.

For those who preferred a more blissful energy, a short walk through a whimsically lit tunnel took them to King’s Hall. Night one at King’s Hall saw up-and-coming Asian and Asian-American acts, including Orlost and Dyvergent, both local to the New York area. Their acts brought transcendental vibes while the more intimate atmosphere of King’s Hall allowed the audience to really fall into themselves and sway to the music.  Day two at King’s Hall was equally riveting, welcoming acts like What So Not and Sunryse.

Regardless of the stage that you found yourself in front of, the eclectic mix of electronic dance music infused with traditional elements was invigorating. The crowd consistently matched the vibe and did not slow down all night.


The phenomenal performances were not the only thing on offer. Just steps away from both stages, attendees could get their faces blinged out for free with gemstones, write their wishes on the wall for the new year, and stock up on traditional Asian snacks by spinning the wheel. Traditional Lunar New Year dragon dances were performed throughout the night, bringing entertainment familiar to some and brand new to others. The atmosphere was alive with joy and excitement as attendees cheered, danced, and embraced the spirit of the holiday.

Pulse Events Lunar New Year 2024 left a lasting impression, reminding everyone of the power of music and culture to unite and inspire. They have once again delivered an extraordinary experience, marking the beginning of a new lunar cycle with a signature twist.
