Countdown Party 2020

2019 certainly flew past in the blink of an eye! As we hold on to the remaining days of 2019, it would be a shame if we spent the last day of the decade binge watching Netflix in our PJs like any other day. With that in mind, get ready to welcome 2020 with a major bang!

Here are 10 countdown parties and events, perfect for your last hurrah before the decade ends.

Bali, Indonesia

1. Finns Beach Club New Year Eve


Judging from the strong affinity Bali has with raving partygoers, Finns Beach Club’s New Year Countdown Party is definitely livin’ up to the island’s rep – VIP experience, a dope lineup and 13 hours of the sickest beats playing till the wee hours of the morning.


2018 saw an overwhelming 12,000 party enthusiasts so expect nothing less – if anything, a bigger turn-out rate this year. British DJ and production duo CamelPhat, powerhouse record producer Duke Dumont, and indie tropical house sensation Lost Frequencies will kickstart the start of a new decade with their smashing hits.


Spanning across 9 bars, 4 pools, 6 restaurants, and the Indian Ocean out yonder, rake in the oceanic views with a direct upgrade via the VIP Admission.

Don’t get us wrong – we love a wild countdown party. Nothing amps up the atmosphere like renowned artists reigning the stage and dancing it all out with a passion for the big 2020.

But this year at Jungle Fish Bali, it’s less about booze binging or a full-on body workout and more about a solid 6-course dinner. Plus, watching the sky erupt into a splendor of fireworks by the infinity pool really is the perfect laid back vacation plan. If that sounds like your type of fun, read on.
