Hitch a ride on a firework and soar into the stars at this extraterrestrial New Year’s Eve extravaganza. It might be Interstellar’s maiden voyage, but rest assured they’ve got their high-G training badge and they’ve invited a courageous crew of drum & bass cosmonauts along for the ride. Among these intrepid travellers are DJ Hype and DJ Hazard, who will be joining forces for a blistering 90-minute performance; rowdy jump-up mob SaSaSaS; and Mampi Swift and Crissy Criss, who are upping the ante with a frankly excessive seven-deck set. But it’s international (soon to be intergalactic) juggernaut Friction who is the night’s esteemed guest of honour, D&B Hall of Fame entrant and founder of infamous record label Shogun Audio. The selectors on show have already reached dizzying heights in their respective careers, but this NYE they’ll be blasting off into the stratosphere.
Sun 31 Dec, Crane, Bowyer Street, Birmingham, B10 0SA, 9pm-5am, from £27.50, www.interstellar-rave.space
