Arguably the most anticipated nights of the year, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day have the biggest parties, the best line-ups and the most brilliant events. Here are your what, who, where and whens to help navigate you through the final phase of the festive period. New Year mode: enabled.

Returning to their spiritual home of Store Street for this season's merriments, The Warehouse Project has pulled out all the stops to bring in 2015 with a bang! I went to WHP for New Year's Eve last year and the atmosphere was next level. This year Bristolian and house music's funny-man Eats Everything is heading the bill alongside Heidi, Huxley and Skream who is no stranger to the Store Street DJ booth, having appeared on the WHP line-up twice this winter already. Brace yourselves for this one, the party goes waaaaay beyond the midnight countdown.

Moving down the M62 to Yorkshire now, Leeds-based event company mono_cult is throwing a New Year Day bash of epic proportions with a back-to-back appearance from Four Tet and Canadian Daphni aka Caribou, the man behind one of this year's monster house tracks Can't Do Without You (one of our season favourites here at Ibiza Spotlight). Floating Points, recognised for sourcing the freshest new music and his sundry song selections, will be making his Room 1 debut alongside Gerd Janson and Move D. Nice one, Canal Mills.


Circus

WHEN | Thursday 1st January 2015 (NYD)
WHO | Kerri Chandler, Yousef, Richy Ahmed, Detroit Swindle, Coyu, Lewis Boardman, Scott Lewis
TIME | 22:00 - 04:00

Tickets: £20

Liverpudlian Yousef has invited the likes of Detroit Swindle and Hot Creation's diamond Richy Ahmed to help celebrate 2015 in style at his prestigious Circus party. Cat-loving Coyu (who brought his weekly Suara events to Booom! Ibiza last season) will also be taking to the turntables - cats not included. Rounding off the stellar line-up is American Kerri Chandler who is frequently acknowledged as one of the original deep house music creators. The Halloween edition of Circus saw Yousef don a S&M Sesame Street costume so this really is a night where anything goes!


The Warehouse Project

WHERE | Store Street, Manchester
WHEN | Thursday 1st January 2015 (NYD)
WHO | Maceo Plex, Four Tet b2b Daphni, Julio Bashmore, Joy Orbison, Scuba, Bicep, DJ Tennis, Krystal Klear, Jasper James, Krysko, Zutekh DJs.
TIME | 18:00 - 05:00

Tickets: £39.50

Scoring a solid fifth place on Resident Advisor's Top DJs of 2014 list, there is no qualms that Maceo Plex has had a mammoth year with his controversial Conjure Series shaking the fundamentals of house this summer. If his ENTER. sets and Amnesia Closing performance are anything to go by then Manchester, you are in for a treat. The techno tsar has just been confirmed for DGTL Festival 2015 alongside Scuba who is also joining him at this New Year's Day extravaganza. Julio Bashmore and Joy Orbison are on the bill too, as well as the dynamic duo Bicep who are bound to deliver their distinctive, raw edged, analogue house beats to see you smoothly into 2015.


Shindig

WHERE | Digital, Newcastle
WHEN | Thursday 1st January 2015 (NYD)
WHO | MK, Kevin Saunderson, Jaymo & Andy George, Cristoph, Mark Lowry, Steven Dunn.
TIME | 22:00 - 04:00

Tickets: Sold out

Across the North in Newcastle, Shindig are throwing a special New Year's Day edition of MK's Area 10 event and it's no surprise he's invited an array of talented music maestros to join him including Kevin Saunderson, Jaymo & Andy George, Cristoph, Mark Lowry and Steven Dunn. It's been a hard year to ignore MK thanks to his recent remix of Wankelmut and Emma Louise's My Head is a Jungle. His successful edit entered the charts at number five and sent dance floors in to a two-stepping frenzy from Ibiza to festivals all around the world and back again. No doubt he's planning to stir up the same shuffling-fever-pitch in the North East on January 1st.
