“We're excited to be seeing in 2013 in our home town of London. Brixton Academy is an iconic venue and headlining UKF Bass Culture there on New Year's Eve will be amazing.” Chase & Status

On Monday 31st December UKF Bass Culture brings together a handpicked selection of the world’s greatest bass music artists for the UK’s biggest dance party this New Years Eve. Hosted at London’s favourite music venue, the legendary O₂ Academy Brixton, UKF Bass Culture will celebrate the finale of one of the greatest years in the Capital’s history, as we collectively step into the future. Midnight at UKF Bass Culture NYE will witness unforgettable scenes, as a new moment in time is fully embraced. Pulsating performances and jaw dropping production will take centre stage, with thousands of music lovers welcoming in 2013. This year has seen UKF Bass Culture coordinate a capacity event at the Academy back in March, followed by a hugely successful residency hosting Amnesia Ibiza’s main room every Tuesday throughout the summer. UKF Bass Culture NYE will be the first time the event has taken place in London in nine months and consequently social networks and forums have gone into overdrive speculating which world-class artists will feature at this red hot event. For us there was only one act that perfectly fits the bill as headliner. Residents for us this summer, London’s finest bass purveyors and in our eyes the planet’s most exciting electronic act, we are delighted to welcome back to UKF Bass Culture the enigmatic Chase & Status.
