It’s the most wonderful time of the year… the K! Kerristmas bash with a bunch of our favourite people!

Last night at Kerrang!'s London HQ, we toasted the end of another blockbuster year in alternative music with a right ol’ festive knees-up. With drinks flowing courtesy of our mates at Strongbow, Signature Brew and Liquid Death, and K! Radio's own Sophie K on the decks, the Kerristmas party was full of K! friends and family, and a veritable who's who of the UK heavy underground – from members of Ithaca and Employed To Serve to Kid Bookie and Bambie Thug.

Check out the pics below for a peek at why our heads are so sore today...

If you were wondering what band and artists to be stoked on in the coming year, look no further than the Kerristmas party guestlist. Lambrini Girls, Green Lung, Mimi Barks, Svalbard, Wallowing, Ray Noir, Pupil Slicer, Zetra... the list goes on.

And if that's not a reason to celebrate, we don't know what is!
