With a milestone New Year’s Eve almost upon us, it’s time to get those plans finalised for the big night. The city will be a hive of activity with loads of free entertainment happening at Yagan Square and the Perth Cultural Centre, and there are so many NYE parties being hosted by some of our favourite venues that it’s near impossible to make a decision.
PERTH CULTURAL CENTRE & YAGAN SQUARE
City of Perth is getting right into the New Year’s Eve celebrations this year, with a huge line up of free events happening at the Perth Cultural Centre. Head down from 6 pm and check out some live music from rockers Cherry Jane, grunge outfit Flossy, pop four-piece Dulcie, and soul-jazz fusion masters Butter before ringing in 2020 with an official countdown and fab view of the fireworks.
Got kiddos in tow? Head over to Yagan Square for some family-friendly fun and a 9 pm countdown.
Return of the 90’s NYE Party
Ring in the end of 2019 with a return to the decade when cheesy tunes reigned supreme and all we had to worry about was having a good time. This NYE at Yes Please you can eat, drink and dance the night away to all your fave 90s hits for just $20, and enjoy one of the best vantage points in the city for the fireworks.
NYE Rooftop Party
This is one party you won’t have to worry about finding a surcharge-free Uber to get you home from, you can just disappear to your hotel suite. But before that, you’ll be partying the night away on the fabulous QT Rooftop to the sounds of Beryl Streep and DJ Nas, and eating your way through the roving food stations. Drinks will be flowing from 7 pm.
Sundowner NYE Party
AURORA ROOFTOP BAR
Aurora Rooftop Bar are doing New Year's a little differently, and instead of counting down ‘til midnight they’ll be counting down to the last sunset of 2019. Refresh yourself at this free event with a complimentary Aperol Spritz on arrival and watch the sunset over the city skyline. The perfect way to kick off your NYE celebrations.
If you really want to party hard, then the Origin Fields two-day extravaganza is where it’s at. With an absolutely huge line up of international and Australian acts including RÜFÜS DU SOL and Tyler, The Creator coming at you over New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, you’ll be heading into 2020 with a bang.
