New Year's Day parties in London
Don’t want your New Year’s Eve to end? Head on over to the Canning Town warehouse space where the party doesn’t start until 7am. Dance the day away as light peeps through the venue’s shutters while Saoirse and a number of as-yet-to-be-announced DJs bring the noise with an eclectic mix of dub, techno and ambient sound.
Defected continuing its two-day celebration of the start of the twenties at Printworks with an almighty line-up on New Year’s Day. Just eight hours after the label-slash-party thrower brings its Glitterbox event to a close, it’ll be opening the doors to the Press Halls all over again for 11 hours of pure house heat. Armand Van Helden, Sam Divine and Low Steppa head a bill that is sure to get your decade off to the best start possible. This isn’t just hair of the dog – this is Defected hair of the dog
‘Legendary’ is a tawdry, overused word, but it still applies perfectly to this party: aka the reigning champ of all NYD parties. Hosted every year by British clubbing heroes Bugged Out at The Old Queen’s Head in Islington, it’s an unabashed coming together of those low on sleep and high on exuberance. Spurred on by lashings of balearic and yacht rock classics, expect people riding on shoulders throughout! Get in early. Though it runs from noon to 1am, things get rammed earlyish. Tickets are yet to be released.
Start 2020 right by listening to a live band perform the brilliant jazz-soul-pop songs from Amy Winehouse’s ‘Frank’ and ‘Back To Black’ albums.
