There isn’t much more enjoyable than dancing beneath the stars or underneath rising sun. So don your shades and check out four incredible outdoor clubbing experiences, plucked from 2015’s Top 100 Clubs poll!
This year’s Top 100 Clubs champion is more like a festival than a nightclub. The large outdoor main stage sits on the side of a lake and is surrounded by lush greenery. Every weekend Green Valley welcomes 8,000 people who dance in the great outdoors to a soundtrack provided by the biggest names in electronic music - Hardwell, Carl Cox, Showtek have recently rocked the venue, which even has support from Brazilian football star - Neymar Jr.
Sirena is located on the shores of the best beach in Sao Paulo and is famous for their incredible outdoor area - La Pistina. The terrace area, which is the location for deeper, underground sounds is surrounded by trees and is one of our favourite places to dance until sunrise.
Wanna party to EDM till dawn on a picturesque cliff-top overlooking the Aegean? Well, at Paradise Club such a scenario is entirely possible! Suspended on a rocky outcrop on the Greek Island of Mykonos, Paradise takes its name from the beach above which it hangs: the idyllic sands of Mykonos’ Paradise Beach. Paradise Club prides itself on more than just its Mediterranean location, they’ve also got some of the best mainstream house and EDM line-ups in the region.
Ushuaia was the sound on everybody's lips when it opened in 2011 and word has spread like wild fire ever since. A plush five-star hotel on the rapidly developing clubbing strip of Playa d'en Bossa, its impressive, festival-sized wooden dome of a stage and its lavishly priced cabanas made it the most wanted spot among Ibiza's more high rolling clubbers. Regular sets from the Swedes, Guetta and, last year, Armin, and Hardwell too, have made Ushuaia the go-to for those with cash to splash in recent years. However, don't be fooled by its spa, deluxe suites and Michelin star restaurant. This is a place for serious clubbers too. Loco Dice delivered his Used + Abused party here in 2013, while ANTS, with Andrea Oliva as its prized resident, regularly arranges names like Seth Troxler, Maya Jane Coles, Kölsch, Jackmaster and Deetron to bring proper house and techno to hardened Ibiza heads.
