PSA: Halloween is just over two weeks away! We'd argue it's one of the best holidays, as you can do what you like, be it getting a little messy at a Halloween rave, scaring yourself silly with jumpscare-packed movies, or checking out some other spooky event, maybe even a haunted house tour

And if you’re struggling to figure out what to do, watch this space as we’re highlighting all the best Halloween events in all the major cities, including Manchester and Liverpool

With Halloween just around the corner, we’re seeing Boxing Day and Christmastime events creeping in, including some incredible raves. 

In this week’s New On Skiddle, we’ve got a Boxing Day rave with Hannah Laing, Hedkandi’s Winter Party, Azyr, Craig Charles, Stack City, two 2024 festivals and more. We think we might’ve outdone ourselves with this one… 


Haze Boxing Day Special w/ Hannah Laing


When: Tuesday 26th December 2023

Where: The Point in Sunderland 

Is Hannah Laing Scotland’s biggest DJ right now? It’s very possible. Will she somehow just keep growing? We’d bet yes! 

Off the back of a small handful of truly mad free parties, Hannah Laing is The Point’s next giant headliner, helping us all wake up after a chilled Christmas break with bangers like Good Love and Party All The Time

Sure to blow the roof off the place, as she always does, how tickets are still available is a mystery to us, so trust us when we say, if you want to get down to this, do not wait around.

Craig Charles Funk & Soul House Party


When: Saturday 4th May 2024

Where: Albert Hall in Manchester

Following a sold-out show in the same city earlier this month, Craig Charles’ feel-good funk and soul party returns to Manchester’s Albert Hall in May. Craig transports dancers into a world of rhythm and soul, bringing along talented selectors who’ll also show their own takes on funk and soul, past and present. 

Bringing his extensive record collection to groove-seeking music fans for over 30 years, Craig plays a mix of old and new records, earning himself the reputation as one of the most exciting DJs around right now. 

Certain to be overflowing with wholesome, infectious energy, tickets for this one won’t last long. Especially after the last show sold out! Secure yours now below!

909 Presents: Sasha & Patrice Baumel


When: Saturday 16th December 2023

Where: The Dome At Grand Central Hall in Liverpool

Groundbreaking, multi-award-winning DJ and producer Sasha heads to The Dome at Grand Central Hall in Liverpool with techno giant Patrice Baumel and support. 

Once voted the number one DJ in the world, anyone who loves electronic music should consider adding a Sasha set to their bucket list. And with Patrice Baumel joining him, we’d say this one is a no-brainer. Support comes from Cream and 909 DJ, Stuart Hodson, and Liverpool’s Jemmy

Hedkandi Winter Party


When: Friday 22nd December 2023

Where: Radisson Red Glasgow in Glasgow

Yep, it’s time for those Christmastime events to come flooding in! Launched back in 1999, Hedkandi has become a huge force in dance music, taking residencies in the party capital, Ibiza, and throwing hundreds of events each year. 

This pre-Christmas bash features Hedkandi’s Santa, Mark Doyle, with helper elves Marc Rowell, Vicky (saxophone), Stevie Bone (percussion), and Soraya Vivian (live PA), queen of wild live performance.

All going down in one of Glasgow’s best venues with the killer sound system to match, it’s going to be a heavy way to start the holidays!

Elation x ACLP: AZYR


When: Friday 8th December 2023

Where: The Ice Factory in Perth

After rapidly selling out tickets to his massive shows in Edinburgh, Liverpool, and Glasgow, Azyr comes to Perth's Ice Factory for a dark rave full of energy, powerful basslines, and atmospheric sounds. 

More popular than ever following his sweaty-as-hell Boiler Room set, Azyr just keeps getting bigger and bigger, converting ravers all over to his fusion of techno, schranz, psytrance, acid, and hardstyle shows.

Always getting the crowd bouncing off the walls with every wild selection, he’s sure to have The Ice Factory absolutely dripping in sweat as he always does.

House Masters at The Middlesbrough Empire


When: Friday 29th December 2023

Where: The Middlesbrough Empire in Middlesbrough

House Masters, going since 2019, is all about togetherness and celebrating old skool acid house and techno while creating new memories. The party will be the last house session of The Empire’s parties spanning 30 years, with brilliant guests spread across three floors.

House Masters founder, Mark Plumb, will be playing a 2-hour set, spinning unforgettable classics, upfront releases, curveball tracks, and fan favourites that’ll remind seasoned ravers of their nights in The Empire way back when.

Multunes presents Stack City Scotland Winter Tour


When: Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd, Friday 8th, and Saturday 9th December 2023 

Where: Aberdeen, Glasgow, Dundee, and Edinburgh 

Here’s another one that has us baffled that there are still tickets left: Liverpool-based rave brand Stack City is back with a four-date Scottish tour at the start of December with Irish artist Multunes on the decks. 

Only established in 2022, it’s remarkable how giant Stack City has become already. But then if you’ve been to their events, you’ll know exactly why their parties are so in-demand. All about “proper parties,”, focusing purely on creating the best vibes and banging out the best tunes, it won’t be long before they’re onto massive things.

Treat yourself to an early Christmas prezzie and secure your tickets now before they’re gone - you deserve it!

Trance In The Woods Festival 2024


When: Friday 31st May - Saturday 1st June 2024

Where: Elvaston Castle Country Park in Derby

One of the best trance festivals, and also a really cool forest fest, returns in 2024 after becoming the UK’s first woodland-based trance celebration. 

Despite the fact the headliner hasn't been announced, Trance In The Woods 2024 is already looking stunning with Aly & Fila, Bryan Kearney, Amy Wiles, Mauro Picotto, Dave Pearce, Binary Finary, Tall Paul, Maria Healy, and many more announced. Everyone hates when good things come to an end, that’s why you can also secure afterparty tickets to hold off the post-fest blues a little longer. 

Complete with Co2 blasts, lasers, special effects, and huge sound systems, this one’s sure to go down in history.

In It Together Festival 2024


When: Friday 24th - Monday 27th May 2024

Where: Old Park Farm Margam in Port Talbot

Another fest without headliners yet but still looks amazing is Wales' In It Together with Ewan McVicar, Sister Sledge ft Kathy Sledge, Gardna, Roger Sanchez, Razorlight, Scouting For Girls, D.O.D, and more. Packing rock, pop, indie, reggae, house, DnB, jungle, and more into one lineup, In It Together is a celebration of music as a whole, going down on the late May bank holiday weekend. 

After selling out last year, the fest returns for its third edition with some new features. In 2024, the fest brings in over 100 free family activities, a food village with celebrity chefs, The Escape Retreat for wellbeing, and new stages and areas.
