Rex Club in the centre of Paris is without a doubt the venue of choice for New Years Eve in France. It’s location means that you can enjoy the spectacular Eiffel Tower fireworks and be a the club 10 minutes later with a quick taxi journey over the river. Remaining tight-lipped about its lineup so far, Rex is sure to be a fantastic night of dance, house and techno. Confirmed so far is Parisan-resident DJ Tarlouf X, who has been making a name for himself since 2003 as one of the leading minimalist techno DJs around and also Woody McBride, aka DJ ESP, a rare opportunity to see one of Daft Punk's Teachers.

Fireworks (see photo below) followed by symphony orchestras, samba, house, techno and then more fireworks, the celebrations in the grounds of Copacabana Palace Hotel in Rio are going to be an electrifying mixture of sights and sounds of every style, pace and atmosphere imaginable. If there’s one thing we know about Brazil it’s that they know how to throw one hell of a party!
