From huge clubnights and Alfresco Disco NYE to pub back rooms this is the essential new year's events list.
What's on NYE
Around mid November every year the same question is on everyone's lips - what's on in Bristol on New Years Eve?
This page aims to answer that question and provide complete listings for New Years Eve events in Bristol.
In Bristol there's a whole wealth of exciting nights out on New Years that frankly aren't available the rest of the year, with this in mind plan your night carefully and remember that tickets for popular events sell out fast.
Unique options for what's on Bristol new years eve are all listed below. Bristol's biggest venues like to really up the anti with venues like Lakota and Motion turning out some of Bristol's most spectacular club nights to date.
Bristol's best bands also work their balls off, missioning around the city playing multiple new years eve gigs. Unlikely buildings and pubs become one-off venues - booking bands, selling tickets (typically around £10) and welcoming ridiculously late licenses.
Refreshingly it's these pubs that can provide some of the best live music and intimate atmospheres to be found in Bristol on NYE 2015. This is the most complete run down of whats on in Bristol on the 31st December 2015 this side of the Bristol suspension bridge.
I'm always blown away by the scale of the lineups curated by Bristol's promoters over new years. Laurels are not rested upon and all the stops are pulled out. Motion's consistently immense new year's day line-ups are, without douby, some of the best this city has ever seen. But for many people, the ideal NYE in Bristol is a small party with a handful of their closest friends. Bristol promoters are well aware that small can also be beautiful, so we've listed 5 of the smallest NYE parties in Bristol below:
“After coming back from a South Africa headline tour and a North America NYE mini tour in conjunction with Insomniac and fellow Viper artists InsideInfo and Mob Tactics, he released his first track of 2016 ‘Outatime’ which immediately went to the number one spot on Beatport.“
“Creating the party and spinning the freshest funk, soul and disco beats will be DJ Julesy, the lead singer of Bristol’s legendary Zen Hussies. You’ll be treated to a prosecco on arrival and there will be a special NYE offer of 2 bottles of prosecco for £30 ALL. NIGHT. LONG! Not only that, but to celebrate the arrival of 2017, you’ll get a pasty at midnight from The Pastyman himself. And this isn’t just some bloke in a pinny – oh no! The Pastyman has served and sold Cornish creations all over the world to Presidents, Prime Ministers, top Rugby players and even Glastonbury’s Michael Eavis – so it’ll be a midnight feast like no other!“

“So – as you can see – staying in on NYE is no longer the new going out because we’ve given you a big fat reason to get up, book a sitter, call up the crew, dust off your hot pants, buy a new shirt and roll, rally or rumble down to the Spiegeltent for one helluva night to welcome in 2017!“
“Word is being passed from parrot to python, bat to bear, leopard to lemur and cricket to crocodile; that message is universal - together we shall celebrate the New Year.
