You’re another year older, another year wiser. Instead of waiting until the last minute to plan your big New Year’s celebration, get your tickets now and plan your trip in time. After running all year round to festivals and massive productions, for NYE we’ve focused on more intimate hotspots around Europe, living legends of nightlife on a weekly basis. Here are our super strong recommendations from promoters who are striving to get better not year after year, but weekend after weekend:
Club Guesthouse is at the heart of Romania’s underground music for house, techno and minimal. The club is known not only for its up-to-date line-ups of extended sets but their crowd selection, friendly staff and sound quality: a precisely acoustically treated room in a designed four point Funktion 1 sound system. Andrei Ciubuc, Arno, Cap, Charlie, Cezar, Clovis, Dubtil, Herodot, Praslea, Suciu will contribute to a proper sonic marathon, GH NYE parties being a highly renowned and esteemed. Also, you should consider this is their last NYE in the current location – next year the club must relocate due to urban gentrification. Think twice.
Club Supermarket, the 21 years old legend on Swiss grounds presents NYE Manifest, bringing at its decks the Romanian underground scene straight in their recently redesigned and improved club. Enjoy names like Alci / Mihigh / Paul K / Flavio / Livio / Priku / G76 and Charlie on one of the best sound-systems by KV2, in a party promised to last until Thursday, 2nd of January.
Closer is getting closer to our dream-like NYE. RPR Soundsystem is promised to perform at the Ukrainian club Closer, built on the premises of an old factory. Heavily influenced by Berlin’s community of 24-hour party people, Closer throws weekend raves that lasts well into the following afternoon. There are spaces to fit all moods, including three dance halls, a chill-out garden and a mini outdoor amphitheatre. Proper for NYE or any other times.
Moodymann, Osheyack, Dopplereffekt, Aurora Halal, CEM are the first names announced to perform at the new club located in Moscow opened earlier this year by an anonymous community of underground artists, following the Arma17 mindset. Mutabor’s plans “go far beyond nightlife,” with artists such as theatre director Oleg Glushkov, contemporary academic musicians Kymatic and “various performance and installation art activists” involved in the club’s launch and design.
