Argue with me all you like, New Year’s Day is far better than New Year’s Eve and here’s why...
Line-ups are better, crowds are better and plus if you’re extra hardcore you can start your year right by getting up early and partying all through the day! New year, new you right?
Defected and Glitterbox New Year’s Day @ Victoria Warehouse
Arguably the best in contemporary clubbing and some of the biggest and best parties at festivals and in Ibiza this year, Defected and Glitterbox have teamed up to bring you an outstanding line up. Defected brings you – Claptone, Sam Divine, Low Steppa, Amine Edge and DANCE. Glitterbox feature – Todd Terry and this year’s heavyweights, Purple Disco Machine.
WHP18 – NYD The End of Store Street @ Store Street
And there you have it, the end of Store Street, which has been a rightful and gracious home for Warehouse Project for several years. They’re not slinking off without one last bang though!
While the masterminds behind WHP find a new home, they leave us with an extraordinary set of DJs that have been burning up dancefloors throughout the year, including Hunee (B2B Daphni), Black Madonna, Palms Trax, Gilles Peterson, Artwork, Mella Dee and DJ Seinfeld.
Nodrummer New Year’s Day – Eat New York @ The Bagel Shop
Manchester’s newest bagel shop-cum-discotheque gathers DJs from each corner of the UK for a 12 hour party. Yes you heard that right, 12 hours of non-stop party with the likes of Annie Errez, Tijn, Frazer Campbell, Dudley Strangeways and Hadyn. Now that’s how you bring in the new year!
Wet Play – Microdosing New Year’s Day Soiree @ Partisan
From 2pm til midnight join the wet play pals for some acid house, disco, electronic and world music, because as they say, “new year’s eve is snide”. If that’s not enough to get you there, there will be tonnes of good food and a special guest!
