1001 SE Morrison St Portland, OR 97214

We’re flying in one of our favorite touring acts of 2013 – the truly one-of-a-kind New York-based MC Khalif Diouf, aka Le1f.

His theatrical performance with us back in October blew us away, and we know this queer hip-hop visionary has just the radiant, positive energy we need to bring us into 2014.
We’ve gathered up a line-up of our favorite soulful local bands and posi-vibe-purveying DJs to join him as well.

Pop-R&B darlings Shy Girls will be here to get you grooving.
The duo of Phone Call will be with us, a lean disco-pop machine to behold.
8 piece soul band PWRHAUS will perform, and you’ll have first dibs on their brand new record.
Dance party times with The Miracles Club DJs, Radiation City DJs, DJ SPF666, and DJ Kiffo……
And for the eyes, music-reactive visuals galore handcrafted by local video art masterminds Four Eels.

We want to dance into the New Year with you, and we’re pleased to let you be the first to know about our presale tickets.

Limited supply of $25 advance tickets available now from Stranger Tickets.

    I solemnly swear to be entertaining, tip well and make the night better for everyone there. I’ll also tell everyone within earshot how utterly awesome PDX Pipeline is.

  6. Rebecca December 23, 2013 at 7:21 pm #

    A year ago, I went to the NYE event at Holocene and it was a night I’ll remember for the rest of my life. It has been a monumental year for me: Started graduate school, and just finished my first semester with a 4.0! I have been looking forward to celebrating the triumphs of 2013 and putting the not-so-wonderful moments to bed forever. I would love to Auld Lang Syne at Holocene this year!

      Pick Me! Pick Me! Why? Because if I don’t win tickets to something, my husband and I will be on the couch with the kids… WE NEED OUT! Lol. :-)

  7. Steve December 23, 2013 at 8:21 pm #

  10. Kari December 24, 2013 at 11:41 am #

    Hi! I am a student at OSU back in Portland for the Holidays and I would love to win these tickets so I can take the new guy I am seeing to this awesome party! We love to dance but being college kids we don’t have the money to buy tickets for something like this but we love to get down. Thanks!

  11. Peter December 24, 2013 at 1:58 pm #

    Need to go! Already have work off and just want to have some fun! Worth doing math for too! (may have got it wrong the first time – admission)

  14. Marci December 25, 2013 at 1:40 am #

    I would like to go to this event because I like not being talked to by strangers but i do like feeling like my outfit is overdone or underdone or otherwise not cool enough. Also I like trendy drinks that also count as salad and quasi ironic dancing mixed with triumphant white people music.

  15. Nicole Smith Ryan December 25, 2013 at 9:48 am #

    I would love to win this for my wife and I ‘s 7 year anniversary. Dancing into a life long of happiness!!!

  16. Louis December 25, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

    Way worth the math problem. Yes, amazing! Need to go and bring in the New Year in style!

  17. Hilary December 25, 2013 at 8:14 pm #

    I would love to win these tickets so my best friend and I can ring in the new year having a blast! We’ve both had hard years and it would be the best new start!

  18. Ashley December 25, 2013 at 10:50 pm #

    I have never been to Holocene, and have heard the best things! Why not make the first time NYE?!

  19. Chelsea December 26, 2013 at 9:45 am #

  22. Sonja December 26, 2013 at 3:44 pm #

  31. Jamie Wilkinson December 26, 2013 at 7:41 pm #

    Pick Me! Pick Me! Why? Because if I don’t win tickets to something, my husband and I will be on the couch with the kids… WE NEED OUT! Lol. :-)

  32. Peter Garry December 26, 2013 at 8:50 pm #

    I love dancing and I am trying to figure out the best dance places in Portland. I have never been to Holocene but have always wanted to go. I enjoy getting a little buzzed, getting my dance on and interacting with strangers with the hope of befriending them. This seems like a great opportunity and as of now I have no plans for New Years Eve :(

  33. Shan December 26, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

    I need an excuse to dance on New Year’s!

  34. Julia December 26, 2013 at 11:13 pm #

    Yay! Looks like the perfect event for my friends and me to dance our asses off to celebrate the new year!! Holocene is so fun for dancing and I can’t even imagine what a crazy new years party it will be. I would be so delighted if you picked me.

  35. Beth December 26, 2013 at 11:24 pm #

    I would LOVE to dance the night away to Shy Girls and Phone call and all the rest! What a great line up!!!

  36. Aaron December 27, 2013 at 1:05 am #

    So this one time at band camp…jk. But for reals though…please pick me. I’m a thirsty guy who cannot wait to cut a rug with my BFF.

  37. april December 27, 2013 at 1:15 am #

    I have never been to Holocene and I need a kick in the pants (and some free tickets) to get me off my aging buttocks and attend this super new years eve event. thanks!

  38. Buster December 27, 2013 at 8:19 am #

    I once shot a Cake video at Holocene…I’m back in town and would love to see this place again.

  39. Jesika December 27, 2013 at 8:39 am #

    I really super want to go! pick me! Here’s why: My boyfriend and I currently have opposite schedules (He’s a bartender and I work an 8-5) and we both have the night off and want to have some fun! We attended NYE last year at Holocene and had a blast and would love to go again!


  40. charlotte December 27, 2013 at 12:22 pm #

    This would be such a sick dance party!!!!

  41. Shayla December 27, 2013 at 1:47 pm #

    I wanna go so badly I can’t even muster a more creative response as to why.

  42. b December 27, 2013 at 2:13 pm #

  43. Matt December 27, 2013 at 2:15 pm #

    pick me!

  44. Dan & Sierra December 27, 2013 at 2:28 pm #

    My lovely lad and I just got married and this would be a perfect way to celebrate the new year as newlyweds. Plus, we’d bring the party to the party which as I mentioned is a plus!

  45. hannah December 27, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

    i’m bringing my lil’ sis from AZ in for NYE, and i think she would love this show! if you are still giving away free tickets, we are game!!!

  46. Sarah Cramer December 27, 2013 at 3:58 pm #

  49. Mauree December 28, 2013 at 3:33 am #

    A group of friends and I are coming from out of town and we’d love the chance to dance the night away at this wicked event. There’s a guaranteed 5 other tickets that will be bought if we manage to win tickets! We’re also fun and friendly canadians!

  50. Olivia December 28, 2013 at 12:44 pm #

    Holocene was a part of my first and only time in Portland. Needless to say, I had a blast shaking it to DJ Freaky Outy. I’m coming all the way back from Cali and I’d love to ring in the New Year at this awesome club. Pick me pretty please with a pineapple on top.

  51. Julia December 28, 2013 at 2:05 pm #

    I want to go so badly!! I want to get dressed up and shake my booty!!

  52. Jennifer December 29, 2013 at 3:12 am #

    It’s early am and my boyfriend just got home from his first time at Holocene. I’ve never been. His eyes are bright, a “happy birthday” entry stamp still fresh on his wrist, and his smile is evidence of a night well spent. I should have gone. I should have danced with him, the rhythmic energy eluding the stressors that kept me at home instead.
    He’s sleeping soundly now and I am strangely awake. Damn, I want to go. I want to go and let go. I wanna dance!

  53. Courtney December 29, 2013 at 2:36 pm #

    Been searching for the perfect party to attend with my wife, and considering we love Lief this could be our answer!! We are SUPER queer and a party that is positive and equally a safe space sounds like the perfect solution! Would love to ring in 2014 at Holocene, and be able to be super gay in public!! (;

  54. Mathew Trono December 29, 2013 at 4:47 pm #

    I want to attend this so badly! Shy Girls is my favorite

  55. Alexander Anderson December 29, 2013 at 7:22 pm #

    To be, or not to be. That is not the question that I had in mind when thinking where to go on NYE.I only want to be at Holocene raking in the dance moves and bumping up the beats!

  56. Monday December 30, 2013 at 6:04 am #

    Does this contest have an ending? It’s three days after when you said it would end and you might be confusing people attempting to make plans.

  57. Soldout December 30, 2013 at 7:06 am #

    Sweet! Show is sold out! Too bad I didn’t know Friday!
