The partnership and the livestream will celebrate both brand’s landmark anniversaries in 2024

International dance institution Defected and Beatport, the world leader in music for DJs, producers, and their fans, have announced an epic five-continent, 24-hour marathon party to ring in the New Year.

The dance music behemoths will host livestreams from London, Sydney, Thailand, Johannesburg, and Las Vegas beginning at 11:30 a.m. GMT on Sunday, December 31, 2023, as part of Beatport’s new community-led initiative Music is Unstoppable.
