We've finally reached the time of the year when we can say—with a sigh of relief—these four words: "2020 is almost over."

New Year's 2020 will look and feel much different thanks to COVID-19 lockdowns that seem to become more strict by the minute. Staying at home on New Year's Eve isn't the worst thing, though. You can spend quality time with family, party in your sweatpants, save hundreds of dollars on a one-time outfit, and avoid the inevitable vomit-inducing jäger bombs.

Here is a list of virtual dance music events to stream on New Year's Eve and Day—because being stuck at home doesn't mean you can't rave.

Beatport x Absolut NYE 2020

Beatport X Absolut NYE Lineup

Beatport x Absolut NYE 2020 will begin before midnight local time in Melbourne, Australia with legendary DJ Carl Cox, who will kick things off before sets from Honey Dijon, Jamie Jones, TOKiMONSTA and more. The show, which Beatport and Absolut have dubbed "the world’s most ambitious New Year’s Eve party," will concurrently bounce to over 15 timezones, including Shanghai, New Delhi, Dubai, Odessa, Berlin, London, Saõ Paolo, Miami, Calgary and San Francisco before tying a bow on the party back in Melbourne with a closing set from Cox.
