The New World Center was a central hive of activity. Between musical acts and performances, their huge video screen ran art well into the morning.

And their projector is a work of art in itself

Masses of people were splayed across the whole parkland grass and later concrete.

Music and dance acts brought the people together

And Dana Leong rocked out with his cello out

Meanwhile, the Catalina Hotel served as official Sleepless Night headquarters with an artified lounge open till the wee hours.

Bands played out front all night, including the better than ever ArtOfficial.

Out back, the pool had an awesome projection loop running over the water on a recycled plastic bag screen.

Out on Lincoln Road, Diogo Brown's Batuke Samba Funk band had the people dancing to that live tropical bass music.

A dude named Dr Strange sat in a cage surrounded by electronics and sampled voices live to create audio collages

Probably the greatest agglomeration of people occurred for the wall scaling dance work of Project Bandaloop's "Bound(less)," which saw the vertical exterior of Frank Ghery's architectural design transformed into a stage.
