As we all know, good New Year’s Eve events sell out faster than Jack Monroe at the sight of some Sainsbury’s money. If big-room raving on NYE is your bag, Time Out’s Clubs team have made their pick of the five finest parties this year. Get booking – before you slip into a brandy butter-induced coma…
Located close to the site of the former Murdoch empire in Wapping, the anonymously named Studio Spaces has hosted some banging warehouse-style parties this year. Book quickly for what should be a storming NYE featuring Erol Alkan (pictured), Daniel Avery and Ivan Smagghe.
The cream of British DJs come together to see in the new year at this former Art Deco cinema. Bass-house giants like Joy Orbison, Jackmaster (pictured), Loefah and Paul Woolford mean this one will sell out sharpish.
It may have undergone some maddening name changes this year (first Brixton Clubhouse, then relaunched as The Lambeth, then back to The Prince of Wales), but we love this terraced club venue all the same. It should be a busy one as Chicago house lord Derrick Carter will be playing one of his legendary all-disco sets to see in the new year.
Very possibly the classiest proposition this NYE, long-running Elephant & Castle party Trouble Vision offers a five-hour set from spacey house hero Theo Parrish as well as wildly-respected disco progressive Maurice Fulton playing over the stroke of midnight.
Switching from their habitual Sunday frolics to the Tuesday of New Year’s Eve, these veteran party peeps show no signs of slacking as they present some of the coolest names in techno like Shed, Levon Vincent and DJ TLR. Disco authority Tim Sweeney will also be flying in from NYC to provide a nice counterpoint in room two. Ever-awesome residents James Priestley and Giles Smith (above) will also be on hand.
