  • Dollop NYE

    Raise the (Art Deco) roof
    Dollop are undisputed heavyweights when it comes to grade-A New Year's parties. To see in 2015 they’re taking over  beautiful Art Deco venue the Troxy for a two-day NYE/NYD spectacular. Dishing out the bass on New Year’s Eve will be the mighty Marc ‘MK’ Kinchen, producer to the stars, remixer extraordinaire and crafter of fiery house tunes. Also on the bill is Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, flexing his DJ muscles by getting on the decks and spinning all kinds of glorious party-starting tunes. If you're still standing on New Year's Day, you can enjoy the hefty sounds of Paul Woolford, Boddika and Floating Points. More top names for both events will be announced in the run-up.
    Troxy. 490 Commercial Rd, E1 0HX. Limehouse DLR. 9.30pm-6am.

  • The Hydra and Bugged Out NYE

    Jaw-dropping line-up
    Two top teams join forces for a party mightier than Mighty Mouse gorging on a truck of Mighty White. A quadrant of killer DJ talent has been harnessed, with enough greatness to provoke a few tears of joy from many-a dance music fan: London nightlife-shaper Erol Alkan, newly risen house hero George Fitzgerald, raffish beat genius Andrew Weatherall and robotic rhythm-rinser Daniel Avery. Add to that a slick, revamped venue and you’ve got one of the finest New Year’s prospects in London.
    Studio Spaces E1, Unit 2, E1W 2BB. 10pm-6am.

  • Disappearing Dining Club: NYE Dinner Dance

    Banquet and boogie by London’s last lighthouse
    This grand bash from pop-up party crew Disappearing Dining Club is set in the Chainstore, a waterside Victorian warehouse in the Docklands connected to London’s only remaining lighthouse. It's not the cheapest of NYE options, but you certainly get plenty of bang for your buck here: a welcome cocktail, a range of canapés, a four-course dinner and DJs spinning tunes until 4am. This lot are undisputed pros at hosting great events and serving exquisite food, so sit back, scoff, natter and dance. A classy, delicious and massively fun way to welcome in 2015, with some amazing views across the Thames.
    The Chainstore, Trinity Bouy Wharf, E14 0JY. 7pm-4am.

  • Club De Fromage Vs Old School Indie New Year’s Eve

    Cheesy pop bliss and indie anthems
    It's always hard to keep everyone happy when selecting a NYE clubbing destination. But if the fault line in your crew is between the bubblegum pop addicts and be-fringed, dirty indie kids, then this is the night for you. Club de Fromage and Old School Indie are taking a room each, serving up Lady Gaga, Madonna and Take That in one and Pulp, The Smiths and Bowie in the other. In true NYE style, there'll be a balloon drop, confetti and, er, meat pies – less festive, perhaps, but you won't be complaining when you can’t find your post-club kebab money. Dress-up and go get silly.
    O2 Academy Islington. N1 Centre, 16 Parkfield St, N1 OPS. 9pm-4am.

French tech-house don Agoria headlines with a set of thumping Gallic goodness, and globetrotting selector Cassy will be spinning deep, delicious house. Also on this bill of sharp-shooters is nu-house hero Route 94, making for a blitzing entrance into 2015.

  • Moondance NYE 2014

    Rave hard and true, like they did in the old days
    The hard-raving Moondance crew return with another mahoosive rave, at which the words ‘proper’ and ‘bangin’’ will be uttered more than once. Classic drum ’n’ bass, jungle and rip-roaring ragga are the main ingredients of this heady NYE cocktail, with a smattering of house, acid and garage. Supplying the tunes are scene legends including Drumsound and Bassline Smith, Ragga Twins, Slipmatt, Kenny Ken and Nicky Blackmarket. Oi oi!
