When it comes to celebrating new year, regardless of where you live, you’ll never be short of party choices. But what if you want to do something a little more unique than your standard club night? We have selected four new year events which flip the script, and can help you see in 2018 in truly exceptional fashion.
A BONAFIDE BLOCK PARTY TO KICK OFF 2018
A block party is an oft-forgotten US tradition. If you live in San Francisco you can get back involved this New Year’s Day. A collective of Californian promoters are throwing a 12 hour party featuring artists including Steve Bug, Honey Dijon and DJ Tennis in addition to food vendors and streetside entertainment. Just remember to wrap up warm.
CHANNEL YOUR INNER GATSBY AT LONDON’S SKY GARDEN
If you were wowed by the party scenes from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel (or Bazz Lurhmann’s big-screen adaptation), you can sample some of the magic of The Great Gatsby at London’s Sky Garden this NYE. Sky Garden venue is one of London’s most unique spots, offering incredible views over the city, and this year’s theme adds an extra sense of intrigue.
NEW YEAR’S EVE CIRCLE LINE CRUISE AROUND MANHATTAN
A circle line cruise in New York is worth doing on any day of the year. Yet sailing around lower Manhattan on NYE, with a DJ and open bar, witnessing the stunning skyline views as fireworks fly above, is something completely unique and inventive.
A SUNRISE CRUISE IN BARCELONA
Watching the sunrise seems like a pretty great way to start any new year. And to do so while sailing of the coast of Barcelona, as melodic techno fills the air is even better. The Floatingpoint NYD cruise sets off at 7am and features techno selectors TC80 and Cedric Dekowski, among others.
