Whether you’re a fan of singalongs or a hardcore raver to the hard, fast and messy beats of donk music, there’ll be a nightclub for you somewhere on our party-loving planet. And DJ Magazine, trusted by EDM fans everywhere, has just unveiled its list of the 100 best in the world. 

Reclaiming its position at the top spot is Ibiza, a 5,000-capacity venue on the nightlife-obsessed Spanish island, which opened back in 2017. About Hï Ibiza, DJ Magazine said: ‘World’s most technologically advanced dance music destination: check. Home to the White Isle’s premier-league residencies: done. A marvel of nightlife design: read it before.’  

The venue showcases big-name headliners as well as aspiring talent, and a labyrinthine layout, crisp audio and bold lighting – it does sound pretty mega, to be fair. 

Unsurprisingly, other famous nightclubs like Berlin’s Berghain and Camboriú’s Green Valley made the ranks, but so did seven UK venues – you can read more about those here
