As 2020 creeps in and we wave goodbye to another decade, plenty of venues across the country are giving you one final chance to celebrate the 2010s in style.

Guaranteed to take you into 2020 with a smile on your face and a song in your heart, Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club will be at Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms playing everything from Smoove & Turrell to The Bongolian.

Relive the biggest and best floor filling anthems from the past three decades at The Garage with The Indie Time Machine – but if you’d prefer something to purely get you in the mood to party, how about heading to Valhalla NYE at Oslo?

Find our full run through of what’s on and where on New Year’s Eve 2019:


Stealth New Year's Eve: Bicep DJ set (Rock City)

Nottingham’s favourite club are taking over Rock City to celebrate New Year’s Eve and bringing with them a wealth of electronic icons. The first headliner has been revealed as BICEP (DJ set) – a DJing duo from Belfast that have sold out venues across the world including the UK, Japan and the US. Most notably selling out three consecutive nights at Printworks in London where they handpicked the lineup for what CLASH refer to as “an epic rave.”

Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club (Rescue Rooms)

Craig Charles’ DJ sets are legendary in the circles of funk and soul fans. Pulling out everything from The Jackson 5 to Aretha Franklin on his BBC Radio 6 Music show, you can expect more of the same when he heads to Rescue Rooms to perform his ‘funky New Year-Nottingham’ show. Caramello DJs will be opening the event at 8pm before Craig Charles’ set takes us into 2020 – after he leaves the stage, Paradisco DJs and Sir Funk will kick the new decade off in style.

The Twisted Time Machine – Pop Confessional (Thekla)
