If you’re planning a safari this NYE, you’re in luck as jungle-themed parties are all the rage. Ron Gastrobar’s Downtown location on the Rokin is going into the wild, offering fabulous food and entertainment in a tropical-infused environment. The glamour stakes are being raised at Hotel The Grand, where jungle mayhem is set to unfold in the salubrious surrounds of these former royal lodgings. It’s more urban jungle at The Grand Ball where juicy acts are sure to entice. Go all out with your jungle-themed outfit!
Enjoy a cultured programme of events as the Muziekgebouw and Bimhuis join forces for a NYE bash that includes top acts and fireworks concluding with a roaring party. Don’t miss Circus Kagel, a musical theatre production based on Mauricio Kagel’s Variété where daring performances and circus music are just some of the jaw-dropping acts sure to amaze you. For a more subdued but no less exciting experience, take in The Hart family and guests for this traditional New Year's concert in the Oosterkerk featuring music by Bach, Mozart, Dvorak and Hindemith.
Debauched, depraved and hard is how you could describe these events, and if that’s your thing, we've got a killer NYE itinerary for you! At EPIQ NYE the beats are hardstyle, the sounds are twisted, RAW and Frenchcore. Insanity is guaranteed. Devil-worshipers rejoice as Hell-fire presents a sexy night of devilish fun. The Gates to Hell open at 20:00 so that all you sinners can indulge in dance while DJs spin the Devil’s music. Over at Trance Orient Express, a banging line-up of acts will set the scene with trancey tunes while Verknipt’s first New Year’s Eve extravaganza promises to deliver blistering tech-house and techno.
Share the love
New Year’s Eve is the perfect night to share the love. Kick it off with Lovelee x Disko where you’ll find champagne, glitter, fireworks and fabulous music courtesy of Horse Meat Disco and others. It’ll be no less sparkling at F*cking Pop Queers, but perhaps a bit more baroque with non-stop pop, retro and old-school house music! Shelter’s NYE Special is all about celebrating in a safe (and lavish!) place with great music, or you could douse yourself in extra glitter at Girls love DJs. Launch into a new galaxy for NYX’s space adventure featuring stellar tunes and out-of-this-orbit outfits. It’s going to be an LGBTI spectacular. Go retro at Midnite Burlesque’s naughty and bawdy party mixing film-noir glamour with rock-and-roll raunch. It’s sure to be swinging!
Happy nuevo year!
These Latino-inspired parties will have you on the floor. Latin house, Afrobeats and techhouse with a carnival theme will fire up the crowd at Recycle Lounge Gallery Club. Count down from ten to one in Spanish and dance yourself silly all night long to reggaeton, salsa, merengue, bachata, dancehall and Latin hip-hop at this fabulous party. Or transport yourself to a warm climate at Club Mystique’s cosy Latin-spiced NYE party where champagne will flow and DJs Alex Gee and Rojo will keep you swaying your hips until the dawn of a new decade.
