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.
