You may have already heard about fun.’s New Year’s Eve plans, or Jay-Z and Coldplay’s joint December 31 gig, but there’s a wealth of champagne-saturated concerts nationwide closing out 2012, and SPIN has collected them all for your party-planning pleasure.

On television, Ryan Seacrest will yet again emcee Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, which broadcasts live from Times Square in New York at 10 p.m. EST on ABC. Taylor Swift, PSY, Neon Trees, and Carly Rae Jepsen are all scheduled to perform, with Justin Bieber, Ellie Goulding, the Wanted and providing live music for the West Coast telecast. Before the concert starts, Fergie and Jenny McCarthy will host a two-hour retrospective on the life of the late Dick Clark, starting at 8 p.m. EST.

Carson Daly will steer NBC into 2013 for New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly, beginning at 10 p.m. The Voice host will be joined by his singing competition colleagues — Voice judges Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine — and the TV contest’s newest winner, Cassadee Pope, who will co-headline the live Times Square telecast with Top 40 rockers Train. Expect cameos from NBC stars such as Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman and Daly’s late-night comrades Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon.

Ke$ha will also be in Times Square on December 31, appearing as a musical guest for MTV’s Club NYE 2013, which kicks off live at 11 p.m. Ne-Yo, Rita Ora, Sean Kingston, and Conor Maynard round out MTV’s list of booked live talent, with the Jersey Shore’s Snooki and JWoww scheduled to host the show alongside comedian and Money From Strangers star Jeff Dye.

Lifehouse and X Factor winner Tate Stevens will play FOX’s New Year’s Eve Live! special, set to air live from Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino at 11 p.m. EST. Marlon Wayans will host and “performer” Carmen Electra is also slated to pop up.
