Carl Cox announces New Years Eve in Hawaii with a two days program
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the incredible 1999-20 venture, Carl Cox will return to Hawaii
Techno music legend, Carl Cox announces New Years Eve in Hawaii with a two days program; this will mark the 20th anniversary of Cox’s last Hawaiian appearance.
Normally, is not an everyday thing to see two Millenium in a lifetime, even more, if you’re a day playing during the end of one and at the beginning of the new one. Clearly, Carl Cox is not a common man. 20 years ago, he flew halfway around the world after performing at midnight 1999 and managed to ring in the year 2000 for the second time in one night after beating the dateline.
In the span of 24 hours, twenty years ago, Carl Cox made history; he has been the only artist to ring in the same new year in two different countries. Cox played Australia’s Bondi Beach in December 31st, 1999 and welcomed the year 2000 another time, how? He winged himself across the international dateline, dive backward in time and play Hawaii’s Kakaako Waterfront Beach on December 31st, 1999. BBC Radio 1 broadcasted live the event from both locations to millions.
Eddie Gordon, producer for BBC Radio 1 remembers that day as:
…the best reception was in Honolulu because it was the biggest dance music event to ever hit the island, plus was endorsed by the Hawaii Governor as their official State of Hawaii Millennium party. The crowd were so hyped up that they were running at the stage in sheer mania. It was electrifying and made me smile proud at the madness of it all looking at the stars in the open Hawaii air while Carl Cox set about them with his tunes…
