On New Year’s Eve, The Waldorf Hotel has undertaken the task of repurposing its entire venue for what could be seen as the type of house party vibe you might only ever get to experience from your seat in a movie theatre. Space + Time, a Vancouver-based creative agency is bringing in the critically accalimed Travi$ Scott and a few Mad Decent headliners in the hopes that they will put on a party over all three floors that will give you a late start to your January 1st resolutions.
If you are someone who equates the new year with growth, the choice for Travi$ to perform seems fitting given his rise from being a producer on Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail and Kanye West’s Yeezus to being a sought artist himself. Signed to G.O.O.D. Music and T.I.’s Grand Hustle records, we saw his growth via collaborations with PartyNextDoor, Yung Lean, and Meek Mill, Big Sean, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, and Migos. Travi$ Scott will be sharing the evening with Swizzymack who has similarly seen a meteoric rise through his innovation of the Philly Club style and experimentations in trap for Diplo’s Mad Decent record label. The selection for performers in this line up is both refreshing and tasteful by the virtue that its focused on performance as opposed to which headliners will simply generate the most ticket sales through name recognition.
Besides what’s going to be going on with your ears, your eyes will constantly be pulled between the Polynesian designs that are what the East-Van staple is come to be known for and the 3D visual images being bounced across the room by the production designers. Apart from the overly expensive light show, the event itself promises to be sans gimmicks and focused around good drinks, great music, and creating a space for you to enjoy the
company of your friends as you reflect on the year that came before. If you’re trying to avoid that party you’re only going to because it was the first one you got invited to, it may be worth just telling everyone to check out this event.
