London's premier live music venue, The Academy has a long tradition for showcasing the biggest bands on the planet. Running parallel to that success over the past 5 years has been HEATNYE – the only club promoters in the capital capable of pulling off a sell-out show for 4,500 people at one of the world's most prestigious venues. Split over 4 arenas and featuring up to 30 DJs, HEATNYE offers you everything you could ever wish for from a New Year's Eve party, but without that let down feeling come kick out time.
Win 3 pairs of tickets to the HEATUK NYE!
At the top of the stack is Above & Beyond - undoubtedly the world's most exciting new trance DJ/Producers of the past 5 years and the UK's answer to the Dutch big guns like Armin, Ferry and Tiesto. Their genre-defining productions (mostly released on their own Anjunabeats label) have become an essential tool for the globe's leading DJs and in the process have set the benchmark for the new generation of dance music producers. Joining them will be The Gallery's superstar resident, the one and only Tall Paul. After another hectic year of touring and production, the big fella remains at the very top of his game and having missed out on playing at last year's event (having blown the roof off the Academy in 2004), he can't wait to be back. Neither can we. Fellow Gallery resident and host of The Gallery Radio Show (MOS Radio) Gavyn Mitchel also figures, as do dance music heavyweights Rob Tissera (Kissdafunk) and the much-loved Dutchman, M.I.K.E – who'll be dropping an exclusive Push classics set featuring every single one of his global smash hit tunes.
Elsewhere in the Academy, more mischief can be found with the 3 other rooms blasting out the good time NYE beats. First up is the Foyer; hosted by one of the London's hottest new promoters of 2006 – PARTY PROACTIVE. Housed every quarter at Turnmills, Party Proactive have broken through the ranks, combining an unparalleled atmosphere with hugely credible line-ups across the hard dance, electro, breaks and house scenes. For this NYE collaboration Party Proactive have gone for the jugular with techno pioneer Christian Smith (Smith & Sellway) jetting in to join the hard-edged loving Nick Sentience, Pete Wardman and old skool fave Trevor Rockcliffe.
