Niall Horan, Chainsmokers, Rae Sremmurd Bring the AMAs After-Party to Beverly Hills

With the 2017 American Music Awards in the rear view, artists, executives, creators, and friends gathered at the Beverly Hills home of songwriter-producer Andrew Watt for a post-show blowout. Billed “Friends Keep Secrets” and co-hosted by Interscope Records, among those in attendance were the Chainsmokers, Niall Horan, Hailee Steinfeld, Tyler Hubbard from Florida Georgia Line, 5 Seconds of Summer’s Ashton Irwin, G-Eazy, Alesso, Diplo, Julia Michaels, and Ansel Elgort.

Several executives also made a point to stop by, including Interscope Geffen A&M chairman John Janick, Republic Records Group president Charlie Walk, and Disruptor Records founder Adam Alpert. Among the songwriters and producers making the scene were Benny Blanco, Louis Bell and Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd.

More than 200 guests filed into the backyard, which housed a Sahara-like tent complete with firepits and blankets as the temperature dipped into the 40s. Inside the house, revelers were treated to a raucous DJ set by Rae Sremmurd. Nearby, a weed bar offered free products and dabs. The party was co-sponsored by Dobel Tequila and Now & Later Candy.

The event was a chance for creators and artists to toast their accomplishments so far this year. Watt, who co-wrote the Kygo and Selena Gomez hit “It Ain’t Me” and also has credits on Camila Cabello’s “Havana” and Gomez and Marshmello’s “Wolves,” certainly has plenty to celebrate and showed the love as he circled the crowd.

Spotted throughout the night: Hubbard and the Chainsmokers’ Alex Pall in deep conversation; Diplo and Michaels sharing a laugh; A meeting of the Summers as 5SOS’ Irwin and the Summer Set’s Brian Logan Dales greeted each other with a warm hug; Multiple guests marveling that Watt has a ball pit room in his house.
