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.
NEW YEAR / NEW NOISE
–––– Howling Owl Records’s annual celebration of ‘Art/Noise/Reaction’ climaxes over 3 nights at The Brunswick Club. Proceedings are topped by Philadelphia’s Moor Mother, her seething ‘hardcore poetry/blk girl blues’ rising to the forefront of experimental circles in ‘17. Bristol-boys-done-good Giant Swan are sure to brew up a cathartic blow-out, after a relentless ascent this year, becoming one of the most talked about live techno duos in Europe. S4U add a spectral quality to their 90s RnB romanticism, whilst Nervous Conditions are a promising young art-rock/post-punk gang. Plus expect more exploratory electronics from Vessel, E B U and many more.
Lakker's last concept album, on R&S Records, is an industrial journey through the history & sound of Holland's troubled relationship with flooding.
In under a month, Loose Lips invite them to The Island.
Support from a Macedonian duo and the Idle Hands boss.

What's on NYE
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:
“Mother and Auntie have invited you to their NYE House Party to share a toast for the New Year! Dress up to the nines (or tens if you're feeling extra fancy!) and say good riddance to 2017, and a huge, booming HIYA to 2018!!“
