Snapchat's $4M New Year's Eve Party Could Include Drake Performance
There have been few people, if any, who have had a great a year has Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel. The social media mogul's company went public earlier this year, which has led to his personal net worth eclipsing $3.5 billion. On top of that, he found love with one of the world's most beautiful women, supermodel Miranda Kerr. With all this in end, you'd think that a New Year's Eve party for the ages would be the only appropriate way to close out 2017 for Spiegel and, according to a new TMZ report, it looks like he's doing just that.
The co-founder of the tech giant has supposedly dropped $4 million on his company's New Year's Eve bash this year, using the cash to rent out Microsoft Theater and basically every other venue that is in close proximity to the venue, which includes Katsuya, Lucky Strike, Tom's Urban, Conga Room and Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill. He's also flying in a whole bunch of Snapchat employees from around the world to join in on the festivities.
The event, which has been in the works for months, even caused the ice rink in the middle of Microsoft Square to be removed last week. The company has successfully acquired all the permits needed to host around 5,000 guests, all of whom who will be treated to a 105-foot DJ tower and an impressive light show. 2 complete street closures have also been put in place to secure the area. The best part? Drake is rumored to be the night's surprise headline performer, a booking that is being personally sponsored by Spiegel.
