2017 is about to sneak up on you like a hungry leopard, reminding you that life moves fast, and we're all one step closer to death.
But it's not all bad news. Sure, you blew pretty much all your resolutions this past year by February, but now you've got a clean slate on the horizon. And, courtesy of the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, you'll have some very famous people to help you celebrate your second chance.
Miami Beach's most famous hotel announced its New Year's Eve 2017 lineup today, and it's stacked. Justin Bieber will be performing at the hotel's famous NYE bash, and downstairs at LIV, Skrillex will spin his way into 2017.
The Fontainebleau's New Year's Eve party is always one of the hottest shows in town. It's one of the more expensive too. This year, general admission tickets are starting at $500 and shooting all the way up to $40,000 for a stageside private space that can hold up to 30 guests and better come with some goddamn chocolate-covered strawberries or something.
Those opting for Skrillex at LIV can save a little bit of cash with tickets starting at $300. For the lavish and luxurious among you, there is a $50,000 package available for "half dance floor VIP," which will hold 20 people (beware of the accompanying $10,000 service fee — that's how they get ya).
Past performers for the 'Bleau's NYE concert have included Drake, Lady Gaga, and — last year's talent — Kygo and the Weeknd.
Bieber was just in town for two back-to-back arena shows at the AAA, stopping by LIV and Story for afterparties.
Tickets are available to purchase now via fontainebleau.com/nye.
