Read on to check out the hottest New Year’s Day parties.
We begin our round up the best NYD parties with part one of the yearly marathon with the Fuse London crew. Operating under their sister banner Infuse, the party starts at Village Underground at 1pm and will feature a trio of back to back sets from Enzo Siragusa and Seb Zito, Rich NxT and East End Dubs as well as Subb-An and Adam Shelton.
If you ended up going too big on NYE and are slow off the mark on the 1st, Hangar, London Fields is the location for the night time session and part 2 of Infuses’ mammoth NYD celebrations. Archie Hamilton and Rossko will be joined by special guest Guti who will be playing a live set.
It pays to take it easy on NYE in favour of January 1st as you will be able to enjoy parties such as Libertine’s massive after hours. Featuring sets from Andrew James Gustav, Binh, DJ Masda, Evan Baggs, Onur Ozer, Slow Life and Spacetravel, Libertine Records party at VOID Berlin packs one hell of a punch.
After the resounding success of ADE and previous events at Bret in Amsterdam, the Slapfunk crew return to one of the standout venues of the music week in October. Taking care of business will be Pascal Benjamin, Miller – Real Gang, SE62, Martinez, Reiss, Samuel Deep and Julian Alexander.
One of London’s consistently great venues during 2018 starts 2019 in the same vein and that is at full throttle. Continuing the previous night’s festivities will see the Pickle Factory open at 6am to welcome Omar, Christian AB b2b KRN, Joe Delon b2b Loren and Tho b2b Tom Cottrell who will be supplying the soundtrack to this twisted get-together. In the best possible sense, of course.
At Berghain the first rave of the year is probably the most important one and a quick glance at the line-up for Silvester Klubnacht will tell you that. With all areas of this sprawling industrial club open for business during this special occasion you will be able to catch artists such as Martyn, Steffi, Efdemin and Soundstream perform in a venue that has more hype surrounding it than probably any other.

Drums will be dividing and conquering this festive as they will also be presenting an all night long session with Romanian duo extraordinaire SIT Aka Cristi Cons and Vlad Caia. The location is one of Barcelona’s havens for minimal music – R33. Make sure you are strapped in for the ride.
London seems to be a hotspot for great events this festive and as always, the Half Baked team pull it out of the bag with the aid of Art of Dark. Kicking off at 10am on January 1st at Studio 9294 is a solid cast of selectors in Jane Fitz, Francesco Del Garda, Evan Baggs, Lamache b2b Robin Ordell, Voigtmann, Northsouth and Colin Chiddle. What more could you ask for?
NYD at DC-10 is always a special time and with the club winning its recent court case this party will be even more special. As always they present a huge line-up but this year will see sets from Carl Craig, Magda, Archie Hamilton and Apollonia.
Arupa Music has a special after-hours event in store for New Year’s Day 2019. Featuring one of Sunrise Festivals standout residents from the past year Mihigh will be joined at an as yet undisclosed East London warehouse by Paul K, Carlos Ryan, Chrissy Hope and Rob James.
With Closer regularly offering amazing line-ups, the details of their NYD party is hardly surprising but impressive none the less. The Savage Floor will see sets from the likes of Marcel Vogel, Roman K and Plastikk, while Closer will see sets from San Proper and Maayan Nidam. If you are in Ukraine this year end you know where to go for one of the best vines in the region.
Analog Room X Bunker, Dubai
Lastly, but by no means leastly is the daytime shindig from the combined forces of Analog Room and pop up party promoter Bunker. This al fresco affair will see sets from TODD, Ju Lovett, Shemroon and a raft of the city’s top selectors. Just remember to pack the sunblock.
