The best of 2011: clubbing
Time Out's clubbing editor picks out her highlights of London's party scene in 2011
Clubbing in 2011 was bigger and more daring than ever. Alexandra Palace was turned into a rave playground with monster parties featuring some of the world’s biggest dance DJs while Deadmau5 and friends threw a mini-festival in Victoria Park and, in alternative nightlife, Secret Cinema broke all records with nearly 60 events this year. In east London, no venue was left unturned, and we partied in photography studios, air raid bunkers, shop windows, launderettes and rooftop gardens. It’s been a victory year for electronic music too, with dubstep and house producers shining at the Mercurys and in 2011’s Grammy nominations.
The best of 2011...
... and the worst of 2011
TOO point out how wrong this article is both 1 & 2 arnt really even club nights, neither are even open to the public and not even really club nights. They both dope but are live streaming parties if you think thats the cutting edge of clubbing then you don't have a clue about the scene in london. If you have been to boiler room its bascily people standing around watching the dj and How can performance in a tiny pod count as a club night with only a few select people in there count as a club night is beyond me. poor article but happy that Boiler room is getting more exposure.
Angus wasn't invited, ner-ner-nener-ner On that topic, Corsica Studios (TKOL launch party's venue) deserves a mention too - how they lured that many big-name DJs to a tiny venue in Elephant and Castle I don't know. Maybe something to do with the best soundsystem in London....? (controversial!)
yep, that's what sealed Boiler Room's reputation as a stalwart of London's electronic music scene: the launch of a remix album of a massively successful rock band. I mean, for goodness sake.
