House Party: NYE

House Party: NYE


On the August bank holiday, Channel 4 hosted a live, six-hour DJ takeover that went so well the idea is being revived on the biggest party night of the year. The line-up includes Annie Mac, Frankie Knuckles, Norman Jay, Hercules and Love Affair and Toddla T. Which suggests all the makings of a giant house party with world-class acts, but no queue at the bar.


Following last summer's through-the-night dance music event, BBC 1Xtra's Charlie Sloth returns to host the ultimate party to send off 2012 and welcome in 2013, featuring six hours of live sets by renowned international DJs. The line-up taking to the decks features Radio 1's Annie Mac, house pioneers Frankie Knuckles and Norman Jay, nu-disco act Hercules & Love Affair, Sloth himself and Sheffield producer Toddla T. Plus, social networkers in the booth provide a link between viewers and the DJs for shout-outs and requests as well as showing pictures and videos from house parties around the UK.
