Sign up for Nightlife’s Automated Christmas Programming

Nightlife Music offers automated Christmas Programming to support venues in crossing music and visuals off the holiday season To-Do list.

Once users register for this special programming, Nightlife’s team will set festive holiday tracks to play in the nominated venue at regular intervals from the 1st of December, until the 26th.

The automation will weave one Christmas song from the selected holiday list into the Current Playlist every 20 minutes, and allows for some additional customisation with the option to stop Christmas music after 6PM or add Christmas visuals to screens, if desired.
