Grammy winners the Chainsmokers — known for their “Closer” collaboration with Halsey and “Something Just Like This” with Coldplay — will perform at Aloha Stadium as headliners of the New Year’s Eve Party of the Year. The festival originally was announced for Kakaako Waterfront Park, and those who already purchased tickets will receive premium on-field pit tickets at the stadium, according to promoters.

The Chainsmokers will perform at 5 p.m. Dec. 30, kicking off the festival, which is sponsored by Bud Light and the Cultur App. The bigger venue means a more elaborate stage production with pyrotechnics, special effects and a larger sound system, promoters said.

General admission balcony tickets are $79, premium field tickets are $110 and VIP tickets are $200; check tickets.nyehawaii.com.

The festival will relocate to Aloha Tower Marketplace for Day Two on Dec. 31, starting at 7 p.m. with entertainment by more than 30 bands and DJs on multiple stages.

Walshy Fire of Major Lazer will be featured at the EDM stage; the Son Caribe Band will perform at the Latin stage; country music will be hosted by Nashville Waikiki; DJ Amen from Los Angeles will headline the hip-hop stage; Peni Dean and DJ Power from Canada will lead the reggae stage; and rock and ‘80s music will prevail at Hooters. Food and drinks will be available from food trucks, VIP areas and table/bottle service.

The celebration includes a New Year’s Eve fireworks show, with the party continuing to 2 a.m. New Year’s Day.

Tickets for the Dec. 31 event are $45, $65 and $150 at tickets.nyehawaii.com.
