Chicago NYE Ball


Ring in the New Year with Chicago's newest and largest New Year's Eve Celebration at the beautiful Rosemont Ballroom. The stunningly decorated mega ballroom will be decked out with supreme style, glamor and scenery fit for royalty.

On the most epic night of the year, we are bringing in 2012 with the highly demanded celebrity entertainer, Crunk Energy Drink founder, rapper and DJ extraordinaire, and King Of Crunk himself, LIL JON! Lil Jon is famous for songs such as Drinks, Shots, Get low, Snap Yo' Fingers, and a host of house music collaborations including recent hits with Steve Aoki, Laidback Luke, Axwell, Afrojack, and others.

This New Year's Eve party will also boast Chicago's top club DJs in three rooms of entertainment, and VIP ticket holders can enjoy a four hour open bar with other perks.

For New Year's Eve 2012, raise your hands (or your glass) in the air for an all-out mind-blowing, hard rockin, sexy celebration in Chicago. More than 5,000 beautiful A-listers, rockers, models, moguls, and media darlings are expected to count down the final moments of 2011 and welcome 2012 with a pulse pounding technological sound and light orgy like no other you've ever experienced.

The Rosemont Ballroom, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center is located in Rosemont, Illinois, convenient to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. A skybridge connects the Convention Center to parking and three hotels, so drive in or fly in and plan to stay.
