As we gain closer to the New Year, the country and the world will celebrate and the stroke of midnight the beginning of 2019. From New York to California and across the seas to Europe and beyond are the best parties to attend this New Years Eve. The team from Electric Vibes have compiled a list of the best parties to attend to ring in the New Year.
With the devastating news about the beloved night haven, Output nightclub will be closing their doors in January. Before its final closing, Output will be hosting its New Year’s Eve party with world renowned DJ/producer John Digweed on December 31st from 10 PM - 8 AM. As his third consecutive New Year’s Eve celebration at the Williamsburg nightclub, the Bedrock Records label head will takeover the club’s state-of-the-art Funktion One sound system for a very special extended set that will go well into New Year’s Day. Setting the vibe for the gold-themed special occasion, Desert Hearts favorite Tara Brooks will soundtrack the final moments of 2018 before the clock strikes midnight for the New Year.
“New York has always been a very special place for me to play ever since my Twilo residency in the 90’s. It always feels like performing to a home crowd as I always get so much love and energy from the dance-floor. The opportunity to play an extended set in that room on such an incredible sound system is just a dream; track-after-track just flows thanks to the amazing atmosphere that the OUTPUT crowd creates. Rising star Tara Brooks will be setting things up for me again this year with her perfect selection to get everyone ready to head into 2019. All in all, if you’re looking for a place to celebrate the New Year I can’t think of a better room in North America than OUTPUT.”

“Shed your skin. Taste your truth. Change your life.
The time is ripe for transmutation.
Abandon your past in the madness of dance.
Move into your soul and out of what you think you are.
Be what you know, release what you aren't.
Be New. Be You.”
