The best Hogmanay club nights in Edinburgh
Musika, Gasoline Dance Machine, Volume, Wee Dub and more celebrate the New Year
Traditionally the busiest night of the clubbing calendar and if you want big DJs Musika (Liquid Room) tops the list with their triple bill of Joris Voorn, Derrick Carter (pictured) and Darius Syrossian catering to all your house and techno needs. There’s more house, from Ultragroove and Heavy Gossip, at The Most Extraordinary Hogmanay Party (Tron Kirk), while the Gasoline Dance Machine Hogmanay goes leftfield with special guest Isaac Tichauer (Cabaret Voltaire). Keeping the beats flowing is the Volume! Hogmanay Masquerade Ball (511) with a dubstep, drum & bass and hip hop soundtrack. If you like your bass even dubbier why not plump for the Wee Dub Hogmanay! with Radikal Guru, Riddim Tuffa, Big Toes and more.
Indie heads take note the Citrus Club Hogmanay Party boasts live sets from Caravan Club, The Jackals, Durty Wurks and Green Man Running; while if big band swing (and a dash of cabaret) is more your thang hit up Vegas! Grand Hogmanay Ball (Voodoo Rooms) featuring Cow Cow Boogie and Missy Malone, or the Summerhall Hogmanay Party with Loveboat, The Badwills, films and DJs.
If you really can’t decide head for Magic Nostalgic NYE 2013 (Electric Circus) where you’re likely to hear a bit of everything. And don’t forget it’s your last chance to wave goodbye to the Moray House venue at Bongo Club Hogmanay Party.
