Times Square live

This is such a huge development in the New York Times Square new year's eve story that I've decided it more than warrants a page all of it's own. For many years this has been (with possibly Sydney aside) the biggest and most anticipated new year event in the world, with people wanting to see as much as they can of the evening's events. from the Dick Clark Rockin Eve earlier in the evening to the live music acts, ball drop and fireworks at midnight. For a long time you had to make do with catching a few seconds on the news channels or maybe waiting for the highlights to emerge later in the day - a poor substitute for actually getting to watch the thing live.

Well now this has all changed, with the ball Drop organisers leaping into the 21st century with a live online webcast, not just of the ball drop itself, but the whole evening's entertainment leading up to it, hosted from the legendary Times Square by Allison Hagendorf. Not only is this online streaming free, but also free of commercials, which quite frankly amazes me! In partnership with Livestream they're offering a fantastic service that as far as I can see is easily the best new year's eve coverage of any event globally.

As of this isn't enough the stream is provided in an embeddable format which makes it possible for sites like this one to put it online ourselves, as you can see below. Last year an estimated 17,000 sites took up this offer, so I'm sad to say we're not exactly in an exclusive club, but I think it's a brilliant service nonetheless. The Livestream page alone enjoyed over 1 million viewers, so how many may have seen it on all the sites globally is difficult to imagine, but it will certainly be a pretty big number! The stream is embedded below, and is scheduled to start at 5pm New York (EST) Time. Enjoy!

Lineup for NYE 2014-2015

 

The theme for the Ball Drop this year is "The Gift of Imagination". We now have some of the big name performers for this year's event officially confirmed, with more still to follow:

Miley Cyrus

Jason Derulo

Fall Out Boy

Jennifer Hudson

Enrique Iglesias

Robin Thicke

Blondie

Icona Pop

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Florida Georgia Line

Capital Cities

Daughtry

It's also been arranged that Billy Joel, who is live in concert at Brooklyn's Barclay's Center, will join the event on the big screen to be the first act to welcome in the new year.

It wasn't the best sounding lineup when first announced but the addition of Miley Cyrus has added some much needed glamour to the bill. I just really, really hope they manage to keep her fully dressed and well away from Robin Thicke...

Look out for an appearance from comic and movie hero Spider-Man too, officially named as the 2015 event's Official Super Hero! We've now learned that the superhero will actually lead an ealrier countdown at 10pm, kind of a warmup to the main event which will include some specially prepared pyrotechnic effects from the top of One Times Square. The ball drop will be set underway this year by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

As well as the stream below remember you can check out live views from in and around Times Square throughout the day and catch all the build up and atmosphere via the Times Square webcams
