Safe to say we’re all looking forward to bidding adieu to a rather soul-destroying 2016… Consequently, we’ve been partying harder than ever to forget about the endless deaths and socio-political downfalls we’ve had to endure. And we have no intention of stopping as we welcome 2017. Here’s a guide of what we’ll be up to for New Year’s Eve
1- OSM X PERCOLATE at OVAL SPACE
Can you get a bigger lineup than Floating Points, Midland, Bicep and Levon Vincent? Unlikely. The 11-hour event, which will be spread between Oval Space and Pickle Factory, is set to be one of the biggest parties in London and a sure-fire way to greet the new year in style.
2- HALF BAKED w/ MCDE at SCALA LONDON
Few DJs are as highly ranked in the current scene as Danilo Plessow, aka Motor City Drum Ensemble. Currently placed in 12th position on Resident Advisor’s Top 100 DJs list, the genre-spanning German is set to send Scala alight with his impeccable selections. Sounds tempting?

3- HALF BAKED w/ SONJA MOONEAR at NUMBER 90
Half Baked are certainly making their presence felt across London this NYE by hosting another party out in Hackney Wick, this time with legendary Swiss selector Sonja Moonear and Half Baked resident Greg Brockmann.

4- BEAUTY & THE BEAT at DALSTON BOYS’ CLUB

5- TESSELLATE NYE PARTY at THE NINES
If you’re not up for chancing it to get into Canavan’s or Bussey Building, Tessellate have an intimate but equally unmissable event just down the road… Offering an eclectic mix of afro-global sounds (courtesy of Banana Hill co-founder Cervo) and Tram22 showcasing the best of underground house and techno. Tickets are on 2nd release already so make sure you grab yours here!
6- SUNRISE SESSIONS at SHOREDITCH PLATFORM
If you’re still buzzing long after the clock strikes twelve, why not venture over East for the Sunrise Sessions? Join the Crescendo folk from 4am to experience the first sunrise of 2017 on top of Shoreditch Platform, grab a cocktail, have DMCs with strangers, you know the drill… Advance tickets are only £10, so don’t miss out!
7- FUSE NYD RAVE at VILLAGE UNDERGROUND at MANGLE E8
Those who are intent on extending their celebrations as much as humanly possible can head to Village Underground where FUSE will be hosting their traditional NYD rave from 1pm, featuring sets from co-founder Enzo Siragusa and Berlin-based Mayaan Nidam. Still going? Join the FUSE gang at Mangle E8 for part 2, going well into the night… If you’re tempted, make sure you sign up to the guestlist for your chance to get in!
