A feature in which we move out of the live space and into the club. Can’t decide where you want to dance for New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day? We’ve got you…
E1 & Percolate: New Year’s Eve

Once again, with Percolate the most regular face in this feature, their 2018/2019 NYE extravaganza is the first on our list. After last year’s joyous affair featuring an extended set from Kerri Chandler, they’ve ramped things up a notch (or three) this year by presenting arguably the biggest New Year’s Eve line up in the capital.
