Last Night Fayetteville announces lineup for 2015 New Years Eve celebration

Ready your party hats, Fayetteville.

It’s a few months away, but New Year’s Eve is fast approaching, and Last Night Fayetteville just announced their 2015 lineup.

Main stage headliners this year include local bands Groovement, Galaxy Tour Guides, and National Park Radio.

The event will also include performances by School of Rock: Dean’s List, Tyrannosaurus Chicken, Candy Lee & The Sweets, Adam Cox, Buffalo Hustle, Cosmic American, The Silvershakers, Ozark Highballers, and Jumpsuit Jamey & The Can’t Wait to Play Boys.

In addition to the music, there will be performances by Comedians NWA, Cabaret Fayetteville, Artist’s Laboratory Theatre, Phunbags Comedy Improv, Roughhouse Improv, Word Wars, Diamond Divas Drag, Opera Fayetteville, Jugglology, and more.

Kid-friendly activities will also return to the event, including storytelling, a giant puppet parade, and performances by Shaky Bugs, and more.

A “Hog drop,” (similar to the ball-drop in Times Square) featuring a 8.5-foot-long hog sculpture is set for at midnight as attendees count down the arrival of the New Year, and there will be a fireworks display finale as well.

An after party will take place immediately following the fireworks featuring music by DJ Purp Loder.

Early general admission tickets start at $20 in advance for adults and $5 for children. VIP tickets are available for $95, and include access to a VIP lounge with hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine and artisan cocktails.

Also this year, popular radio show Tales from the South will be taping live during the festival inside the Chancellor Hotel’s 6494 Bistro.

The event begins at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 31, and the entertainment will take place at various indoor venues around the square. Specific venues and a more detailed schedule will be released at a later date.
