The Biggest New Year’s Eve Party in Africa
Lagos Countdown marks the crossover from one year to the next, and in spectacular style. Now in its second year, the event heralds what is fast becoming an enduring tradition in Lagos State. A viable platform for commerce - encouraging brand development, job creation, leisure, entertainment and tourism - the Countdown offers an unforgettable array of thrills and spills for all ages. On the programme are music performances, an enchanting cascade of lights, fireworks and pyrotechnics - turning the entire Bar Beach, in Victoria Island, Lagos, into a melting pot of culture and commerce.
Organised by the Lagos State Signage & Advertisement Agency (LASAA) on behalf of Lagos State Government, the event peaks with a finale that draws over 60,000 revellers.
