From the stretch of runway on Long Marston Airfield to Birmingham’s The Institute, world-renowned clubbing heavyweights GlobalGathering will be swapping festival frolics for holiday celebrations on New Years Eve as they welcome a plethora of heavyweight artists who will be helping you welcome in 2015 with a serious soundtrack that cannot and will not be played quietly.
After the previous four years, the anticipation for this New Years Eve GlobalGathering is already mounted high, as all previous years have sold out in quick succession, with last year breaking records. After the main festival that took place back in June, the line up for this celebratory extravaganza has been constructed out of some of the best artists who played across the many stages that weekend. Topping the line up is the number one selling drum & bass don Wilkinson.
Wilkinson has been going strength to strength over the past couple of years, with his name being cemented into club culture through his hit singles ‘Afterglow’ and ‘Splash’. His ‘Lazers Not Included’ Tour has been visiting all parts of the country over the past few months, and it is a very exciting prospect to see him at Global’s New Years knees up. Next on the bill is David Rodigan, another bass music gem who’s Ram Jam label has spearheaded some incredible parties up and down the country, both in clubs and as stage hosts at a number of festivals.
Friction is next up, a favourite of many drum & bass fans up and down the country, who has been seen on many of the genres best labels such as Playaz, Andy C’s Ram Records and his own label, Shogun Audio. Also DJing will be TC, and special guest Jaguar Skills, a very talented artist whose quick-fire blending of every genre imaginable is very special to watch. There will also be live MC’s on the night including Ad-Apt, Carasel MC and Linguistics. For now, this is who you have to look forward to, but do not think things will stop there, as over the coming weeks plenty more will be announced.
