Last updated: 8th Jan 2024

Have you noticed it’s getting dark a little later now? We have and we’re absolutely buzzing for the summer to return in full swing. We’ve a little while to go but we can taste it. 

But before we get to beer gardens, barbecues, and festivals, we have some more long nights ahead of us, which is perfectly fine since we have loads of brilliant events to squeeze in until then.

This week’s New On Skiddle is looking as gorgeous as ever with a residency from Skream’s labelmate Ghoulish, Daire’s Scotland tour, a new GOLFOS date, an Elkka show, Shape Culture, Elation, MUSICA, and more. 

Take a look at what’s new and secure your tickets to fill this last sprint of winter (and a bit of spring) with laughs with your mates on the dancefloor.


Daire - Nothing But Trouble Scottish tour


When: Friday 26th Jan, Saturday 27th Jan, Friday 22nd Mar, and Saturday 23rd Mar 2024

Where: Dundee, Aberdeen, Glasgow, and Edinburgh

Northern Irish DJ and producer, Daire, embarks on his first Scottish tour, Nothing But Trouble, with dates in January and March. Having surged in popularity after supporting Hannah Laing, Ben Hemsely, blk., and becoming known for his energy behind the decks, Daire is right up Scottish ravers’ alleys. 

With a record deal with a major label and upcoming releases on another major label, the Belfast native is only going from strength to strength. We’re sure the massive, bouncy, nostalgia-tinged tunes he’s cooking up will be everywhere during festival season as well as the raves.

Alcohol FREE Rave


When: Friday 19th January 2024

Where: Heaven Swansea in Swansea

Whether you’re partaking in dry January, are sick of the hangxiety, or want to try something new, alcohol-free raving can be a great idea. Both DJs and ravers are giving it a go, and many say they prefer it as they can enjoy it more and have a clear head in the morning.

Heaven in Swansea brings its first SOBA RAVE with 0% alternatives for lager, cider, wines, prosecco, and spirits, with all alcohol removed from the venue. The rave goes down from 9pm until 2am, and will be soundtracked by Greg P, playing funky, soulful, and disco house. It’ll be brilliant.
