For those of you who haven’t decided on where to go for New Year’s Eve, here comes an antedated blog post helping you figuring out this issue. Check out some of the most promising parties and have a look at some fashion statements of the different locations.
New Year’s Eve Bang, Culture Box, Copenhagen
This small but mighty club in the heart of the Danish capitol represents the Scandinavian electronic dance music scene perfectly. Its’ small venue is divided into three areas called the black, red and white box. During the New Year’s Eve party all floors will be open and offer everything you need from techno to house music sounds. Scandinavian DJ talents such as Asmus Odsat of BULK records and Joel Alter (Uncanny Valley/SE) will ensure you’ll be having a blast.
The Danish are known for their simple but fashionable way of clothing. One of their mantras is that everything should go with everything. The style is ageless and the colors mostly muted. If you decide to celebrate New Year’s in Copenhagen make sure you also go see Malene Birger‘s boutique, one of Denmark’s most influential designers.
Hippie New Year, Ritter Butzke, Berlin
The place to be when it comes to amazing techno parties lasting for days is Berlin. One of the most promising parties, which has been taking place every year is ‘Hippie New Year’. It is hosted by Ritter Butzke, a night club located in a former factory and known for its’ detailed and colorful decoration. Three dance floors will provide the finest electronic tunes, also represented by the fine line up. The German DJ duo Digitalism has been announced the headliner, followed by Niko Schwind and HVOB who will be playing a live set.
If you are up for a trip to Ritter Butzke here is what you need to know about the Berlin style: black is the new black. Or like some ‘Berliner’ say “We’re gonna wear black until there’s a darker color.” This might seem simple, but people often underestimate the variety of black. Have a look at the Berlin label sopopular in Kreuzberg and discover black being your favorite color.
Lost Paradise Festival, Glenworth Valley, Australia
For those of you who are planning to escape wintry Europe there might be an alternative: The Lost Paradise Festival. During its’ three days you won’t only enjoy the art and light installations, but also be able to take part in yoga sessions and other collectively activities. When it comes to music the Lost Paradise also has plenty to offer: Next to world-renowned DJs like Ame and Jamie XX, Angus and Julia Stone will promise some variety to electronic dance music.
The festival is located close to Sydney, so remember it’s summertime in Australia! That’s why Australians will be wearing many colors and playful patterns. Especially jump suits are the new must have. (But might not be the best choice for a festival since you have to take the whole thing off when going to the bathroom.) Keep in mind that the Lost Paradise is a festival, which allows you to wear pretty much everything you feel like.
So this hopefully was some inspiration on where to go for New Year’s Eve 2015. Have a blast wherever you might end up and see you next year when we all end up breaking our New Year’s resolutions way too early.
