The newly renovated Ding Dong Lounge is hosting New Years this year and at the top of their guest list is the Yacht Club DJs. Join them.

There’s no need to tell you that this NYE event will have a tough-to-top (if not untoppable) soundtrack… Ballarat’s Yacht Club DJs manage to combine pop, metal and hip-hop in mash-ups that render you incapable of sitting down.

Polish off your dancing shoes, as All The Colours and Tone Dead and Ding Dong DJs keep the tunes flowing through into the New Year.

WHERE: The Toff in Town, Curtin House Level 2, 252 Swanston St, Melbourne

Strictly Vinyl is all set to be strictly incredible, bringing the best of boogie to your New Years Eve.

The very best of modern sounds will spin alongside classic disco, house, soul, funk and boogie for a unique Melbourne event that utilises some exceptional dj talent.

Hot women and cool men are expected to unite, dressed to kill, for good vibes and copious amounts of rug cutting.

Be part of it for $25 +bf – tix are at Moshtix.

WHERE: Lucky Coq, corner Chape St and High St, Windsor
WHEN: December 31 from 11.30am

No Frills offers nothing but thrills for your New Years. Forget about over-the-top fancy pants parties, No Frills is for those wanting to sink a few pints of tasty beer, listen to some decent tunes and have an all round bloody good time.
