New Year's Easy: where to go for NYE

United Kingdom United Kingdom | by Ben Parkinson | 03 December 2009


Nautical NYE Party with Bellowhead @ Royal Festival Hall

Enjoy a sea-shanty with Bellowhead who have been tantalising festival audiences since 2004 with their eclectic blend of soul, jazz-funk, classic string and traditional English folk music. The band are set to play three contrasting sets throughout the night at the nautical themed bash, intertwined with performances from comedian Tim FitzHingham as well as Jim Moray and The Big Chill creator Pete Lawrence who are set to battle it out as silent disco DJs. At midnight, the party will move out onto the exclusive Thames-side terrace to enjoy London’s incredible New Year’s Eve firework display in relative seclusion away from the inevitably crowded streets.

Ministry Of Sound NYE @ O2 Arena, Greenwich

The guys behind are going to be the top of a lot of Christmas card lists this year. Not only have they done the Transport For London’s job and pimped out a tube to ferry punter to their NYE bash, they even managed to secure at winter warmer starring Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, Plump DJs and Justice in the O2 Arena. And, in true Ministry-style, the party doesn’t stop there. Join Sasha and guest in the Ministry Of Sound Club at Elephant and Castle on New Year’s Day for a hair of the dog…

El Diablo’s Social Club New Years Eve @ The Deaf Institute

Who’s El Diablo? Who knows, but the fella sure knows how to throw a party. Funking their way up to The Deaf Institute will be Danny Webb and Chips With Everything as organisers take over the entire building.  The main floor draw will be Norwegian disco genius Todd Terje, helping the party to continue until 6am.

New Year’s Eve @ The Warehouse Project

Arguably, acid disco supremo Greg Wilson is worth the ticket price alone, but that wouldn’t be big enough for the infamous Warehouse Project venue. For the live music lover, Delphic - fresh from appearing at most festivals this summer - are also set to perform. Alex Metric, Cassette Jam and the local night Prostitutes And Policemen will be working on both sides of the law as well, just to make sure you’re partying until the small hours.

Oh, and for those taking the bet – see you in March!
