By  | 

We understand paying to ridiculous cover charge just to enter an overcrowded bar on New Year’s Eve isn’t the ideal scenario for an avid electronic dance music fan located in the tri-state area, but it’s safe to say you won’t have to settle for that this year thanks to RPM Presents.

With New Year’s Eve falling on a Sunday this year, we’ve officially got a New Year’s weekend on our hands with all the madness starting Friday night. Since there is so much going on this year, we’ve compiled a list of everything that is going down this weekend so things can be less stressful and more eventful as we enter 2018. Check it out!
