The Daft Friday tickets have sold out (I know, a bummer right?) but what if we told you there are other, slightly cheaper alternatives for the people who missed out? Well here is it, an extensive list of places to go on DF for the five thousand of us who missed the boat.

QMU where r u???

QMU hosted their own end of term event in previous years, but unfortunately it's not going ahead this year. They have nothing, we reached out for a comment to no avail. Guess they're all going to DF?


I said maybe, you're gonna be the one that saves my night

The Garage are holding an 'Oasis Friday Christmas Show.' This event has been fully sold out the last 3 times they've played at Garage, so if you're not going to Daft Friday it's a strong plan B – get your tickets asap or you could be left disappointed twice over. If you like screaming the lyrics to Wonderwall and pretending you're from Manchester by wearing Pretty Green, then get yourself down to Garage.

For another year the 'I AM A RAVER CHRISTMAS' is coming to Glasgow, starting at 9pm and finishing at 4am. But the real star of the show is Scotland's infamous DJ BAD BOY(that guy from the chicken song). This is seriously not to be missed. If you're a true Scottish raver then get yourself down to the Classic Grand for a night of absolute bangers.

Something for everyone

Also known as the nation's sweetheart and 'the one hit wonder of Bishopbriggs.' She's coming home to Glasgow to play at her "favourite venue in the world"- Barrowlands. The night will be filled with unnecessary guitar ballads and emotional songs designed to pull the heart strings of a 40 year old divorcee. If that's your thing, this is the gig for you.

Flat Party


Let's face it, this is definitely the best option. Cheap night, chilled vibes and you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own dingy flat if you're hosting. Patch the DF black tie dress code and high heels, you can even party in your slippers. Call your mates round, invest in some kegs and fairy lights and bob's your uncle. Heck.

It's clear that Daft Friday is not the be all and end all of Glasgow nightlife at Christmas and there's plenty more fish in the sea. If none of these tickle your fancy, soz but you really should have just gotten up earlier and wrangled a DF ticket. Silly you.
