According to the press release, both ReSOULution and the Crystal Ball were getting too large for the venues that regularly host them. The logical solution? Combine forces to create one enormous party of win. Hosted comfortably by the expansive International Market Square, this year's party will feature nine DJs in three separate dance rooms spinning an eclectic mix of top 40, hip hop, house, disco, dance, and remixes. Pouting models in high-end fashion will walk runways at four different points in the evening. Perhaps most promising of all: Drinks will be poured until 2 a.m. with the promise of no lines thanks to 20 bars located throughout the space. Those who pay the VIP ticket price can watch the party from balconies, and those planning to crash at the Millennium Hotel (for $119 a room), can enjoy heated shuttle buses traveling between locations throughout the night. 21+.
