Look, we’d love to do the pleasantries with you guys but we’d rather launch into the jaw-droppingly gorgeous new events we’ve got for you! 

Another glorious New On Skiddle, we’ve got a Hannah Laing tour, Ewan McVicar’s Scottish tour, Christmas drive-in films, the maddest New Year’s Eve parties, a 2024 festival, and more. We swear New On Skiddle just gets better and better each week. 

Take a look at what’s new below, secure your tickets, and plan to either end the year with a massive bang or find events to get you giddy about 2024. 


WYLD Christmas Showcase


When: Saturday 23rd December 2023

Where: LAB11 in Birmingham

One of Birmingham’s best-loved clubs and best-loved party brands collab for a massive pre-Christmas session, which happens to be the final party of 2023.

Brummie-based party starters, WYLD, take over Lab on the night before Christmas Eve, going wild (see what we did there?) for one last time this year in the massive warehouse and on the terrace.

The lineup for this one features Wheats, LP Rhythm B2B Paige Tomlinson B2B Mad.Again, Ryan Resso, and more spinning house, deep house, tech house, and minimal tunes. 

One last bash before we’re passing the carrots to relatives wearing paper crowns from Christmas crackers? Of course we’ll take you up on that, thank you.

90s Baby - New Years Eve


When: Sunday 31st December 2023 (New Year's Eve)

Where: Albert Hall in Manchester

If you yearn for the time of Tamagotchis, boy bands ruling the charts (and the world), Sabrina The Teenage Witch, and Furbies (well, maybe not Furbies, they’re creepy), we’ve got the perfect NYE party for you! 

90s Baby does what it says on the tin - gives you the best artists from yesteryear that anyone who was a 90s baby will recognise. While we don’t have a lineup for this yet, 90s Baby Festival featured Blue, Sonique, Peter Andre, Five, Sweet Female Attitude, and more throwback legends. 

You can picture it now: way too tipsy, grabbing your friend by the shoulders, and belting the lyrics that defined your childhood with no idea how you still remember them. It’s probably deeply ingrained in your brain at that point. 

Expect live acts and DJs across house, pop, and club classics.

New Years Eve at The Warehouse Project


When: Sunday 31st December 2023 (New Year's Eve)

Where: Depot (Mayfield) in Manchester 

The north's most respected clubbing spot/series blesses us with a belting New Year’s Eve party with loads of huge artists spanning multiple genres including house, techno, tech house, and more, perfect for friend groups with different tastes.

Some of the massive names soundtracking this one are Rudimental, Girls Don’t Sync, Hannah Wants, Sammy Virji, DJ EZ, Paul Woodford, Gina Breeze, and more. 

Spending NYE buzzed as you glide from room to room to catch some of the biggest names on the circuit is one way to ensure 2023 gets the send-off it deserves.

Evolve + Tetra presents Billy Gillies @ DOD


When: Saturday 30th December 2023

Where: The Liquid Room in Edinburgh

Any keen raver should be familiar with the name Billy Gillies by now. The Belfast trance DJ and producer has been on countless festival and rave lineup posters for the past year or so and is only getting bigger and bigger.

Joining Gillies in Edinburgh this December are some big names across hard trance, tech house, and house including DOD, KIMMIC, DJ Hyperdrive, Calvin Logue, Subtrax, and more.

They take over the full Liquid Room complex from 10:30pm all the way up until 5am. It's going to be a long night, but a belter.

Ewan McVicar Wee Toon Tour


When: Sunday 10th - Sunday 17th December 2023

Where: Paisley, Oban, Portree, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Dundee, Perth, and Glasgow

Ewan McVicar, one of Scotland’s biggest DJs right now, has announced a massive Scottish tour in some incredible, pretty intimate little venues. 

Ewan McVicar needs no real introduction. The Tell Me Something Good DJ and producer is massive, having played just about every massive fest, The Warehouse Project, and loads of other major music events, he’s almost become synonymous with dance music. 

Stopping by at venues including Paisley’s Club 69, Edinburgh’s Liquid Room, Dundee’s LIVE Fat Sams, Aberdeen’s Unit 51, and a secret Glasgow location, these raves are sure to be up there with the ones you’ll never forget.

Hannah Laing Welcome To The Doof Tour 


When: Saturday 17th February - Saturday 17th August 2023 

Where: Cardiff, Southampton, Brighton, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham, London, and Glasgow

Another of Scotland's biggest DJs, Hannah Laing, has announced her England, Scotland, and Wales dates, stopping by many major cities for her Welcome To The Doof Tour. 

Known for bangers like Party All The Time and Good Love, Laing has been everywhere over the past few years. If you haven’t heard of her, you genuinely must live under a rock. 

A word of warning: if you’ve got your eyes on these Hannah Laing tickets, act sooner rather than later as her Dundee dates sold out insanely rapidly and there’s no better feeling than catching a rising artist before they get so big it’s impossible to see them again.

Barry Can't Swim, Skin on Skin, Kettama, Denis Sulta Liverpool


When: Saturday 2nd December 2023

Where: Blackstone Street Warehouse in Liverpool

Absolutely massive, this one sees Denis Sulta, Skin On Skin, KETTAMA, Barry Can't Swim, Nikki Chong, and LaLa take over one of the biggest and best clubs in Liverpool. 

The festival-like venue, known for banging sound and otherworldly lighting and pyro, welcomes some of the best-loved names in house and techno for a lush day rave, going from 2-11pm, ensuring you have time to get home and sleep off that hangover. Or head out to another party if you’re hard enough. If you’re in Liverpool, you probably are. 

The perfect way to warm up on a December afternoon, this one’s going to be one for the books.

Christmas Drive In Movies


When: Friday 15th - Sunday 17th December 2023 

Where: Falkirk Stadium in Falkirk 

Christmas is obviously brilliant. We’re all buzzing about it, the food’s great, and we get presents. But one of the sometimes we can forget about another thing that makes it top: Christmas films. 

Showing all our favourite classics - Elf, Home Alone, Bad Santa, Frozen, Jingle All The Way, Deck The Hall, Love Actually, and The Grinch - Falkirk Stadium is here to get us giddy about the best time of the year with the world’s largest drive-in screen and street food from Glasgow’s Big Feed. 

Stick the heating on (including seat warmers if you have them), drive in, and tune your radio to the film to make some cosy memories to last a lifetime.

51st Festival


When: Saturday 3rd August 2024

Where: Copthall Playing Fields in London

London’s biggest celebration of house music returns, exploring the genre’s many sounds including its classic vibe, afro house, tech house, garage, soul, dancehall, disco, and more.

We don't know who's playing just yet but the lineup always slaps. Last year saw Louie Vega, David Morales, Todd Terry, Roger Sanchez (widely considered one of the best DJs), and so many other legends of the scene on the decks.  

After listening to feedback from the 2023 edition, 51st returns on the original earlier August date, going down on Saturday 3rd of August 2024. Easily accessible by tube, train, bus, and car, this fest, showcasing house from all over, is super easy to get to. 


Tickets for 51st Festival

This event has been cancelled
It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the postponement of 51st State Festival until 2025.
