Defected Records Announces New Year’s Takeover Across Six Continents

The legendary house music label Defected Records has just announced an ambitious series of New Year’s parties taking place across six continents worldwide.

In addition to events in North and South America, Africa, Asia, and Oceania, the label will host a massive double-header party at the OVO Arena, Wembley in their home city of London.

“This event is not just another event; it is a testament to the enduring spirit of electronic music and the passionate community that has grown around it,” Defected’s Director of Events and Talent, George Pritchard said in a press release.

Expanding upon previous NYE parties at iconic venues like Ministry of Sound and Printworks, Defected’s London double-header will be split between New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

On December 31, 2023, Defected’s London NYE spectacle will be soundtracked by label favorites Sam Divine, Low Steppa, Ferreck Dawn, Prunk, and Rio Tashan

Defected’s London New Year’s Day party on January 1, 2024, will be a special takeover from their Glitterbox sub-label with performances from Eats Everything, Groove Armada, and many more, alongside Glitterbox’s “exuberant crew of performers and surprise confetti moments.”

Further performances from Defected’s global takeover include Carl Cox, Danny Howard, and Riva Starr at The Ivy in Sydney, Australia; Melé and OFFAIAH at Chi Samui in Koh Samui, Thailand; and Darius Syrrossian and Kitty Amor at the Wild Water Complex in Johannesburg, South Africa.

For the label’s stateside takeover in Las Vegas, Arielle Free and Harry Romero will play at Discopussy on December 31, and Juliet Mendoza and Mike Dunn will spin at the We All Scream rooftop on January 1, 2024.

The label will close things out with an event in Buenos Aires, Argentina on January 6, 2024. Both the lineup and venue for Buenos Aires are yet to be announced.

Additional information and tickets for each of Defected’s New Year’s 2023/24 events are now available here.
