Dancing off your Christmas turkey has become something of a nightlife tradition in recent times. Here’s our pick of the finest post-Christmas club nights this year.
Motion w/Jackmaster @ Digital, Newcastle
Jackmaster has been unstoppable over the last few years, whether dropping house, bass or 80s boogie, the Numbers label boss has an unrivalled ability to make people dance like their life depends on it. This Boxing Day he joins Richy Ahmed at Newcastle's Motion. Not to be missed.
Fac 51 Hacienda w/David Morales @ Warehouse Project Manchester
A collection of house legends descend upon Manchester this Boxing Day as the Hacienda comes to Warehouse Project. Are you ready for this line-up? *Deep breath* David Morales, Marshall Jefferson, A Guy Called Gerald, Justin Robertson, Peter Hook (New Order) and original Hacienda DJs Graeme Park and Mike Pickering. If that doesn't get you out nothing will.
Rinse FM @ Fabric, London
The Fabric Rinse FM Boxing Day rave up has become as much a festive tradition as mince pies and carols, and this year's line-up is no disappointment. All three rooms will be bussing at the seams with house, bass and grime, with the likes of Waze & Oddyssey, Novelist, P Money, Newham Generals, Paleman, Youngsta and more bringing pure fire ’til 7am.
Craig Charles @ Shipping Forecast, Liverpool
Funk and soul fans rejoice, the king of the dusty ’45 returns to his home town for what will undoubtedly be a musical workout of the highest order. His weekly 6Music show is a must-listen for those who enjoy digging the crates for those rare gems. Don’t expect to leave the dancefloor.
Shine w/Jeff Mills & Bicep @ Queens University Union, Belfast
Hosted by Belfast boys Feel My Bicep, this three room banger sees Detroit veteran Jeff Mills returns to Shine for the first time in 11 years. Backed up by Medlar, Bicep and and all-star cast of local talent, there's only one place to be in Belfast this Boxing Day.
Mixology w/Friendly Fires @ Red Room Peterborough
Over in the east, electro-pop veterans Friendly Fires join Glagsow disco edit master The Revenge for a Boxing Day all-nighter at Red Room. Expect deep, techy, synthy business from start to finish to dance off that tin of Quality Street.
