American alternative Southern rap quartet Nappy Roots is set to perform as well, along with local hip-hop artist FatRat Da Czar. Now in its seventh year, Famously Hot New Year is South Carolina’s free party of the year — bringing tens of thousands of guests to the Midlands region — complete with an international headliner, the biggest NYE fireworks in the Carolinas, regional food vendors, beer, wine and bubbly in a festive, friendly environment in the midst of Columbia, S.C.’s vibrant, walkable downtown districts. The event is set in the heart of Columbia, S.C.’s historic district, with plenty of parking, hotels, restaurants and shops for those crafting a long weekend to celebrate New Year’s Eve
The concert stage is set at Gervais St. and Sumter St., which makes for a prime viewing location of the midnight fireworks show above the historic S.C. State House.
