Whether big room EDM-influenced pop music is your thing or not, it’s difficult to argue with the kind of year 2016 has been for The Chainsmokers. Following up on the strength of their 2015 smash single, “Roses.” The DJ duo of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall followed up with the hugely poplar tunes, “Inside Out” and their mega-hit, “Closer.” The team has become such a force, they are helming their own production that will consume the Los Angeles Convention Center. Presented by Insomniac and Exchange LA, they will work together for what is said to be the tandem’s biggest headlining show to date. Already teasing that new music will be performed this weekend via twitter, both Pall and Taggart are expected to pull out all the stops on stage. Sagging with spectacle, the LA Convention Center will be the site of one of the city’s biggest dance parties come Friday night.

In fact, there is $1000 cash prize for the best dressed on the ice and the best part is that spectators get to select the winner. Pershing Square is an LA landmark and until mid-January, you can explore it while on ice skates. Take advantage.
