Kenzo shared a message on Instagram expressing her gratitude to her supporters and the event organizers, Sub180.

“It is absolutely amazing to see the final lineup! Being on the lineup among some of the biggest names in the world and some crazy local talent is incredible. I want to give a massive thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way, especially the team at Sub180 and Rolling Meadows. This is one of my greatest achievements to date, and without a significant number of you, I could not have done it. If you still haven’t decided on your New Year’s Eve plans, you’d best do it right now because tickets are now on final release.”
