Garema Place will have the Bass in the Place Dance Party.
“This is a safe, alcohol-free event featuring some of Canberraâ€™s best DJs,â€ Stanhope said.
There is also planning underway for fireworks over city hill at 9pm and midnight.
Personally, I prefer the bands, fireworks and celebrations around the lake but in terms of safety and anti-social behaviour that’s probably a lot more difficult to police.
