The Manchester institution will host more than 30 artists on NYE and NYD, including Jamie Jones, Annie Mac, Levon Vincent and Bicep.
As in past years, each event will take a very different programming approach. New Year's Eve is all about big names, including Annie Mac, James Zabiela, Simian Mobile Disco and Felix Da Housecat. Tensnake and Paul Woolford will DJ at that one as well, and Benoit & Sergio will play live. New Year's Day, which also functions as the closing party for WHP's current season, has more of an underground slant (relatively speaking): Jamie Jones and Seth Troxler will headline, along with Maceo Plex, Derrick Carter, Levon Vincent, Four Tet, Heidi and Nina Kraviz. Other highlights include Bicep, Midland, Jackmaster, Trevino and a back-to-back set by Joy Orbison and Julio Bashmore. WHP residents Krysko and Greg Lord are booked for both nights.
Tickets to New Year's Eve are available here on RA. We have tickets for New Year's Day as well, but those ones are on hold until Wednesday.
