Celebrate New Year's Eve With Skrillex, Deadmau5 And Chance The Rapper

It’s not even Halloween yet. Is it too early to start sorting out New Year’s Eve plans? Yesterday we announced that goth industrial stalwarts Ministry are playing at the Concord Music Hall for New Year’s. A few moments ago, React announced what they're doing: a two-day decadent, Las Vegas-style blowout featuring some of the biggest names in music.

Subtly called Reaction, it will take place December 30 and 31 at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center, just a few blocks away from the Rosemont Blue Line stop. The lineup is remarkably solid with headliners including Chicago's Chance the Rapper, Skrillex, Run the Jewels, CHVRCHES, Purity Ring and Deadmau5 all scheduled to perform.

Two day passes are on sale now and will you cost you $99, and the cost will gradually increase. In an effort to make it affordable, they’re also offering a payment plan similar to what Riot Fest has done in the past. If you’re interested, you’d pay three payments of roughly 33%. The only bummer is that you've gotta be at least 18 if you want to go.

Take a look at the complete lineup so far:
