Homoelectric New Year's Eve at New Century, Manchester 31 December 2023 Tickets from £25.34 — Book now

Cap off the year with a flamboyant bang as the Homoelectric crew throw another huge party at Manchester’s top tier venue, New Century.

Billed as a “non-stop off-piste dark discotek for homos, heteros, lesbos and don’t knows”, Homoelectric is an underground club night centred around a collective of five resident DJs: Luke Una, Gina Breeze, Jamie Bull, Will Tramp and Lukas. Since 2019, the close-knit group have pushed to create parties packed with flair, and where everyone feels welcome.

Last year’s event, headlined by Erol Alkan, was one of the hottest NYE tickets in Manchester, and this year is sure to follow suit, with a line-up featuring Artwork and DJ Paulette alongside the full Homoelectric crew Gina Breeze, Jamie Bull, Lukas and Will Tramp.

As for the venue, New Century has been around since the 1960s when, as a dancehall, it hosted the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and The Stones, before becoming the home of legendary Acid House parties of the MADchester era. Resurrected in 2023 as a live music, performance and events space, featuring a food hall and a creative college, New Century is back in a big way, complete with original sprung dancefloor and illuminated ceiling with 1000 disco lights. What better place for one of Homoelectric’s effervescent knees-ups.
