Leipzig Events: NYE edition


Every time I see the word “Silvester” I think of this. TBH As I write this, I’m still finalising my plans for New Year’s Eve (NYE), but I’m sure I’m gonna funk some how some way.

I have fond memories of playing Yatzee and watching movies, of being alone in the studio, of singing along to “Born to be Wild” in the back of a taxi on the way to a club with my mother, of getting caught near Connewitzer Kreuz on Karli when the AntiFa and police NYE confrontation got underway, doing 4 parties and 2 clubs before pleasantly walking home and falling asleep and last year when I ended up at noon the next day in a beatbox and singing circle after having dubbed the early morning away. Hmmmm. I wonder what this year’s festivities will bring. You can just about go anywhere on Karli and find lots going on, but for those of you who want to start planning, here are some parties you may want to give a go. Either way, we at The Leipzig Glocal wish you a very very Happy New Year!
