Lasers, mate

It may be the end of the year work-wise (if you’re lucky), but the clubbing world only gets busier from here on in. Sure, there’s a brief break to swap gifts with loved ones, but then it’s time to get right back on it as we build to the last big blow out of the year on New Year’s Eve.

So here are my tips for keeping the party going over the festive break…

21 Dec: Jon Hopkins & DJ Nobu Curate at Fabric
Let’s not hang about, my first choice takes place tonight. Jon Hopkins and DJ Nobu take a room each at Fabric and fill them with an assortment of DJs and performers worthy of a list sent to Santa. Hopkins, himself one of our artists of the year, has a live set from Nathan Fake, plus DJ sets from Haai and Kelly Lee Owens. Nobu meanwhile ropes in Marco Shuttle and Jay Clarke.

Fabric, 77a Charterhouse Stret, Clerkenwell, London, EC1M 6HJ, 11pm-7am, £25. More info here.

Boxing Day: Dub Shotta at Brixton Jamm
Jungle legend General Levy headlines this opportunity to shake the turkey out of your system, with Benny Page & Sweetie Irie, Ed Solo and stalwart Nicky Blackmarket, among others. The whole night will be hosted by The Ragga Twins and MC Sye.

Brixton Jamm, 261 Brixton Road, London, SW9 6LH, 10pm-5am, £10. More info here.

New Year’s Eve: Tribes West at Royal Oak
For my first NYE selection we head to North West London, where Tribes West are taking over the Royal Oak. The main room will be exclusively house focussed, with the likes of Phil Asher, Stuart Patterson and Sancho Panza’s Jimmy K-Tel spinning the tunes. Downstairs will be a broader mix of music, covering funk, reggae, hip hop and more.

The Royal Oak, 95 High Street, Harlesden, NW10 4TS, 7pm-3am, £10. More info here.

New Year’s Eve: NYE at Egg Ldn
Always a solid bet for any weekend of the year, Egg Ldn has a great line-up for its NYE show. Headlined by techno producer Charlotte de Witte, she’ll also be joined by Luigi Madonna, Regal, Tobi Neumann, Luther Vine, Warboy and more. Tickets for this are almost gone, so move fast if you want to get in here.

Egg Ldn, 200 York Way, Kings Cross, London, N7 9AP, 9pm-10am, £65. More info here.

New Year’s Eve: Tief NYE at Corsica Studios
And finally, we head down to South London to Corsica Studios. Joy Orbison is headlining this one, with Jon Rust and Covco. Room two has just one booking, with Powder making the long trip from Tokyo worth her while with a six hour set.

Corsica Studios, 5 Farrell Court, Elephant & Castle, London, SE17 1LB, 10pm-6am, £30. More info here.

Whatever you choose to do to keep yourself entertained over the festive period, have a good one. Merry Christmas and happy new year!
