Miami will see Benny Benassi at LIV.
A second night of BassLights will be going down in Hampton, Virginia.
Back in San Francisco the always roaming Steve Aoki will be at the Warfield with an after party at Ruby Skye, and he also plans to be in Fresno that night. Also in SF, Wintersalt will be wrapping up with Diplo and DJ Shadow at the top of the bill.
Back at Surrender in Vegas, Calvin Harris will be man of the hour, Kaskade will be at Marquee, and Steve Angello at XS. In Lake Tahoe, the three-day SnowGlobe festival begins with Minnesota, Dam Funk, Baauer, and more.
Tahoe gets a second sweep of SnowGlobe with Deadmau5, Flosstradamus, Madeon and others.
The 15th annual Together As One celebration (lineup not yet dropped) will be bumping in LA.
Meanwhile in Brooklyn, the Dada Land Compound with Dada Life is destined to be absolutely ridiculous. And the Bang On! party people will be headlining Felix Cartal at a nearby Bushwick locale. UPDATE: DJZ peeps will be repping at the Bang On! party, so if you see us there with our LED lighters and blingy 2013 glasses, say “Hey!”
Bassnectar will be in Nashville by then for his special 360-show, where he’ll play from a rotating stage in the middle of the room.
Benny Benassi will be at Marquee in Vegas while Avicii heads over to XS.
In Miami, Calvin Harris also has a bash planned at LIV while Alesso will be at the W Hotel.
Sea of Dreams will be taking place with The Glitch Mob and others in the Exhibition Center in San Fran.
SnowGlobe will be ringing in the new year in Tahoe with Laidback Luke and more.
Our heads are spinning just writing this. Can’t wait for the actual ride!

The DJZ/10 is a collection of ten DJs that we think you should know about now. Some of them are already familiar to you, others you may have never heard of. The list is not based on (1) a secret computer algorithm, (2) social media popularity, or (3) payola. Every month or so we get together to decide if somebody from the broader A…Z directory is about to break out and should be included in the DJZ/10, or if somebody already on the list, for that matter, is “phoning it in” and deserved to be replaced by another DJ who is more worthy.×
