I know we’ve barely done Christmas, but it’s never too early to start planning for New Year’s Eve!
We’ll put the bang back into your New Year’s Eve with our round-up of the best nights to say bye-bye to 2019 and welcome 2020 with open, slightly-drunken arms.
1. New Year’s Eve Magical Lantern Rave
Do ordinary New Year’s Eve celebrations not bring enough colour into your life? This Magical Lantern Rave is the party for you! Head over to Bowlers Exhibition Centre and fill the last night of the year with shining neons and a world of ‘hyper-colour.’ Get ready to ring in 2020 with mesmerising visuals and a kaleidoscope of colours in Europe’s most colourful rave! Get your tickets here.
2. Funk Yeah! Fairfield’s NYE Disco
Lace-up your dancing shoes and get ready for the New Year’s Eve party to top them all! Taking place in the uber-cool Fairfield Social Club, based under the arches of Mayfield, Fever will celebrate the new year with a night of some of the hottest funk, soul and disco classics for your dancing pleasure provided by some of Manchester’s best DJs.
Manchester’s favourite food vendors will be on hand with enough tasty snacks to keep you on your feet until 2020. And for those who fancy a break from the dancing or need of some quiet time, there’ll be a room of retro games. There really will be something for everyone! Click here to get tickets.
3. Ultimate Power: New Year’s Eve Power Ballads Night
Ultimate Power is, quite simply, an evening of the greatest songs ever written. This club night dedicated to the best power ballads will bring compositions from titans such as Collins, Loaf, Tyler, Jovi and more. Every single song is a classic, known and loved by all. Grab your air guitar, leave your inhibitions at the bar and head to the promised land of pure balladic power! Get your tickets here.
4. Me Gusta: NYE Latin, Funk & Afrobeat Party
Me Gusta is back again for 2019 to celebrate an amazing year full of music and joy! Manchester’s Night & Day Cafe will be transformed into a glorious medley of lighting installations, tribal wear, and jungle ambience with projections, creating a unique atmospheric euphoria to properly welcome 2020. Expect to hear the usual Me Gusta eclectic cocktail of Afrobeat, Latin, disco, funk, and electronica from all corners of the globe! Click here to get your tickets.
5. Satans Hollow: New Years Eve Party
Satan’s is promising two rooms of the best rock, metal, punk and maybe the odd pop tune to help you bring in the new year with a bang. Advance tickets are available from the Satan’s Hollow Facebook page and are priced at £7, or revellers can pay £10 on the door. But this Manchester favourite sells out fast, so prepare for big queues if you’re going to try your luck on the door. 101 Princess St, M1 6DD.
