FEATURE: NEW YEAR’S EVE 2013 IN SOUTHAMPTON

0

New Year’s Eve 2014

If you’re in Southampton for the festive season then you’ll be pleased to know that there is plenty going on. In fact, there’s so much going on that we felt a big old summary was required. Read on to find out what’s happening, where it’s taking place, how long it’s going on for, and how much it’ll set you back. Some things listed are much more relevant to the usual content on this website than other things … but it’d be rude not to include those other things seeing as this is meant to be a complete summary!

First up are Sotonight’s choice picks: WEAREJUNK NYE with Heidi, Ben Pearce, and Darius Syrossian at Junk, and the High Tide / DBP warehouse party featuring Lee Foss, Scuba, and Robert James at The Mo’club.

WEAREJUNK: HEIDI, BEN PEARCE, DARIUS SYROSSIAN

Full lineup: Heidi, Ben Pearce, Darius Syrossian, Rhymos, Jody Hannan, Luca Pilato, Moe West, Simon Aston, Carlington, Jay Ahmed

  • Venue: Junk (55 London Road, SO15 2AD)
  • Tickets: £26.25 via Junk’s website
  • Doors: 21:00 – 06:00
  • Age: 18+
  • Dress code: Clothes

Details: These NYE celebrations will be bringing the WEAREJUNK series to a close for 2013. The year has seen many of the world’s top DJs (c.f. RA polls) grace the Junk DJ island and they’re going out with a bang. Early bird tickets sold out long ago, and that’s not too surprising given the headliners. With a bit of luck, this party will also double as a celebration for Junk winning the DJ Mag Best of British prize … more on that as it comes!

WAREHOUSE: LEE FOSS, SCUBA, ROBERT JAMES

Full lineup: Lee Foss, Scuba, Robert James, Gary Bennetton, Boulé + Knight, ThemAgen

  • Venue: Warehouse (The Mo’club, SO15 1GZ)
  • Tickets: £16/£22 via Fatsoma
  • Doors: 22:00 – 07:00
  • Age: 18+
  • Dress code: Clothes

Details: High Tide and DBP are going all out for this warehouse party, that’s for sure. The music will be similar to that at Junk but it’ll have more of a “big room” feel in both senses (i.e. the room itself is pretty big too). They’re going through till 7am (assuming the Facebook event is to be believed) so maybe this should be branded as an NYD party eh?


nye-2013-orange-rooms

ORANGE ROOMS: A.SKILLZ

Full lineup: A.Skillz, Orange Allstars House Band, Maxin DJs, Alex The Kidd, Stevo

  • Venue: Orange Rooms (1-2 Vernon Walk, SO15 2EJ)
  • Tickets: £16 via Fatsoma
  • Doors: 20:00 – 03:00

  • Dress code: Clothes

Details: Orange Rooms are very much taking a party approach to NYE with two-for-one cocktails, discount bubbly and free canapés. They’ve got plenty of VIP treatment on offer too, if that’s what you’re after. Music is varied and awesome so you’ll be hard pushed to feel bored.

THE CELLAR: CHARLEY MACAULAY @ THE SECRET BALL

Details: In their The Cellar’s own words … “the emphasis will be on classic floor filling foot stomping hip swinging tunes with one single aim dancing and having fun”. Sounds good to me. The live music will come from Acid Jazz affiliate Charley Macaulay and you’ll be in amongst masked heroes, villains, et al. The night is also in aid of charity (Southampton PLANETS). Fancy dress not compulsory.
