L.A.’s official New Year’s Eve party in Grand Park will be streaming all of its festivities live online for the second straight year.

This year's headliner is Kinky with additional performances by Esty, DUCKWRTH, and DJ sets by Peanut Butter Wolf and J. Rocc. The event will be streamed live on Grand Park's YouTube channel and Instagram page. It will also be broadcast on Fuse.

The park’s director, Julia Diamond, said the shindig isn’t expected to have a particularly noteworthy impact on tourism this year. But the exposure will pay dividends down the road.

“There's a lot of employment happening that night. But right now the tourism quantity of it goes down when we've had to adjust to COVID in this way,” said Diamond. “But our hope is that we'll be able to swing the door wide open in the future when we don't have security concerns."
