It’s hard to imagine but 2023 is just over a month away and that means it’s time to start looking at New Year’s plans. Obviously, large gatherings have been out of the question over the past few years but this year, Seattle is going to ring in 2023 in a big way. Here’s an early look at what you can expect at T-Mobile New Year’s at the Needle this year.

The Space Needle is bringing back T-Mobile New Year’s at the Needle to ring in 2023. Crowds will be back at Seattle Center to watch the countdown live and in person from around the grounds. It will also be broadcast live on KING5 and the soundtrack will be simulcast on HITS 106.1. As it’s the first full-scale, in-person production since the pandemic, the needle is going big this year.

Expect to see the Seattle sky lit up with the largest structurally-launched fireworks show in North America. There will also be a synchronized light display with the fireworks to make this celebration even grander. In a statement shared with Curiocity, the Needle said that this will be its biggest and brightest show ever.

The Celebrations soundtrack will feature both global tracks, and local influences, while celebrating some of the cultural touchstones of 2022 as Seattle dances into 2023. We’ll have more details for you in early December, in the meantime get excited to welcome back one of Seattle’s best celebrations!
