For those who still haven’t planned out what they’ll be doing towards the end of the year, we’ve listed some of the world’s most unmissable parties that are worth the travel and will guarantee a good start to your new year.
1. Goodbye, Dear Friends – Studio 80 (Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
Studio 80 says farewell with a bang with some of Amsterdam’s most talented artists. It will be the send-offs of all send-offs, and highly recommended, as the city says good-bye to what is, without a doubt, it’s best venue.
2. New Year’s EVE - The One (Barcelona, Spain)
The organizer, Thomas Franzman, knows how to throw a good party, as was apparent with his off-Sonar party Get Perlonised, and will no doubt continue with his New Year’s Eve event. Expect Perlon regulars and if you have the energy, the party carries on through to the next day with Oscar Mulero and Speedy J for some techno goodness.
3. Silvester - Frieda’s Büxe (Zürich, Switzerland)
If there’s any Swiss club that knows what’s up it’s Frieda, whose epic resident DJs kill it every time, and will guarantee that you won’t want to leave the dancefloor on New Year’s day – or ever.
4. NYE – Concrete (Paris, France)
Since it’s launch in 2011, Concrete has become one of the biggest entities in the city’s clubbing scene, and their New Year’s party is surely to be as impressive, if not more, than any of their other nights.
5. Tiki Disco New Year’s Eve - Good Room (NYC, USA)
This new club located in Greenpoint has a knack for good, largely underground electronic music artists and is the place to be in for an out of the ordinary all-night danceathon where you’ll be served a morning buffet to keep you going strong.
6. New Year’s Day Sunrise Party – Secret Brooklyn Warehouse (NYC, USA)
Lee Burridge, known for his famous global ‘All Day I Dream’ parties, will welcome the dawn of 2016 among art installations and unexpected surprises in an epic new warehouse space in East Williamsburg.
7. Desert Hearts presents Maya Hearts NYE (Tulum, Mexico)
The Desert Hearts events were founded by a core crew of DJs from Burning Man who will play at this NYE event alongside some of the finest global musicians. To get a better understanding of what to expect, just check their mission; ‘to change the world through House, Techno, & Love.’
8. Silvesterrave - Docks (Hamburg, Germany)
A night of quality tech-house by some of Germany’s most renowned DJs, and if you’ve already been to their parties, you know it’s more than just a night of musical fulfillment, but one with a staunching good vibe to boot.
9. Titty Twister Eve - Salon Zur Wilden Renate (Berlin, Germany)
This year in Berlin New Years, Tittle Madness starts at 1am and ends at some point on the January 2nd. Expect tons of disco and house, and vampires. Well, not like real vampires, but Berlin vampires. In Renate we trust.
10. EGG LDN NYE (London, UK)
The Egg, now pushing into its 11th year, is one of the leaders of London’s techno scene and are known for marathon NYE events and this year’s ‘Pop Art’ night is of no exception. Wham! will be showcasing the Mannheim sound, while there’ll also be some Pow!, Kapow!, Bang! and Shazam! too.
