NYE Eskimo Dance
— 29 Dec 2017, 14:19 by Lauren Furey
We are officially on the countdown to what is guaranteed to be one of the biggest New Year's Eve parties in London. On Sunday, we celebrate the welcome return of the one and only Eskimo Dance, as they throw down a show like no other with some of the biggest artists in music, today.
It feels like just yesterday that we were partying with Eskimo Dance for the massive Boxpark Croydon launch weekend. If you were there then you know. But, fret not, there's still time to bag your place at this weekend's star-studded event, though tickets are flying fast!
This time around, we're seeing you into 2018 with an exclusive line up of epic proportions and a secret special guest. We'll be joined by Flirta D, Sian Anderson, President T, Rude Kid, P Money and Target, as well as some unlikely legends in the form of Kurupt FM. These pirate radio players and sitcom stars have forged a name for themselves in all the right ways, with a foundation in broadcasting quality British underground music before making the leap to television with the hysterical mockumentary, People Just Do Nothing. These fellas will also be supported by an impressive selection of DJs and MCs who will be kicking things off from 5pm. For the full line up, just head to our events page!
Now, no Eskimo Dance party would be complete without the man and legend himself, Wiley. So, it's just as well we've got him on the bill. 2017 saw the release of Wiley's critically acclaimed album 'Godfather' and his autoboigraphy 'Eskiboy'. It was also the year that Wiley declared he no longer had anything to prove in his career; he had laid the foundations for grime, almost two decades ago, and he watched it flourish and evolve under a wave of artists who helped to take it into the mainstream. This east London icon has continuously delivered with studio albums, single releases and live performances and, so, we're incredibly excited and humbled to have Wiley join us this Sunday.
We also can't wait to have you lucky ticket-holders come down to Boxpark Croydon to celebrate with us and see in 2018 in a big, big way!
