Grab your glow sticks and running shoes and celebrate music at Night Nation, the world’s first running music festival.


Designed for electronic dance music lovers, the 5K run takes place at night on an illuminated racecourse featuring lights, lasers and beats. While racing, runners get to enjoy live EDM music, with multiple DJ stages located throughout the course, and interactive light displays.


Runners have the opportunity to get loose before the race with some dancing to a live DJ at a pre-party, keeping the beats pumping all the up to the race start.


After crossing the finish line, the musical voyage keeps going at an epic after-party, featuring the event’s headliner DJs on the main stage. Revelers get to dance the night away as lights, fog and water guns rain down on them and powerful sound systems play the latest EDM beats.


Upcoming races are taking place this spring, summer and fall in cities across the United States, including San Diego, Orange County, Austin, New York, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Charlotte, Cleveland, Phoenix and Denver, with plans for events in Baltimore, Nashville, Twin Cities, Philadelphia and Chicago.


Tickets to Night Nation cost about $60 and include race entry, t-shirt, glow necklace, admission to the after-party and free giveaways.
