2020: An intergalactic New Year's Eve

Self-proclaimed the best New Year's Eve in Lyon, Ninkasi Gerland's party is a guaranteed blast. Straight from the cosmos itself, especially this year, the team organising the event promise a transition to 2020 that pays tribute to man's first steps on the Moon, the release of Stanley Kubrick’s film masterpiece and the official opening of NASA's tourism branch.

There’s no shortage of good reasons to reach for the stars! For the occasion, the whole venue is involved: the Kao welcomes, on the turntables, Jack is Back, Minorah and Crowd Control for an all-night intergalactic techno/house set. At Kafé, DJs Waxmine and Andria will be spinning their grooves. Klub will host Vinzzo's hypnotic visual and sound installation. And outside, a tent will be set up for a cosmic bass performance with DJ Ross.

From 10:30 pm to dawn at Ninkasi Gerland.
Dinner + evening package from 8 pm (75€ + booking fee).

Fcknye Festival 2019

If you prefer a cosy, intimate New Year's Eve party, surrounded by tranquil music, Fcknye Festival 2019 is definitely not for you. The organizers of the event are dreaming big. To accommodate all this excess, the Eurexpo site was acquired: both techno and hip-hop will be in abundance!

As for urban music, we await the newbies 47TER, Koba Lad and Zola. Royalty on the scene, Vald and Orelsan, will be headlining. Techno is not forgotten with the furiously energetic DJ AZF, the duo Mind Against, and the sensational Vladimir Cauchemar.
There will also be a bunch of fantastic newcomers, making for a very promising event.

To maintain your energy (you will need plenty), several food stands are planned to last until sunrise.

From 7 pm to 5 am at Eurexpo, Chassieu.
Tickets: €56,87 or €87,92.

This is New House Year

For its last party of the year, Le Petit Salon has decided to go with a line-up fuelled with love, communion around dance and heat. To this end, the venue has decided to go with house music, an electronic genre that has its roots in soul, funk, hip-hop and disco.

The great club of Lyon’s 7th arrondissement invites local DJs to the turntables in Room 1, the spearheads of this movement: Naux (former jazz drummer), the brothers Frr Fonk and the neo-parisian Strato. In Room 2, Terror Mike will get the crowd bumping with an old school r'n'b and rap set. All good reasons for jumping into 2020 in an atmosphere of harmony and joy. How can you not love this?

From midnight to 7 am at Le Petit Salon
Tickets: €16/19.
