LA HUAKA
Re-entry
Position: 
76

Peru is hardly an accepted haven for cutting-edge dance music; however, a spike in club activity has brought attention to South America's culturally-rich nation in recent years. Inti Fest, which enjoyed its fourth yearly event in February, is one main offender, however the nascent movements of the Peruvian party scene can be traced back even further, to this open-air playground for hedonists made of mud bricks, sprawling with lush, green vegetation.

Concerned only with the most respected house and techno talent (Villalobos, Sasha, Nic Fanciulli), La Huaka was the first of its kind when it opened on the sandy shores of Asia Beach (also home to Inti Fest) on New Year's Eve 1999, triggering a surge of nightlife activity in the area. Now home to six clubs and a dozen bars, Asia's golden beachfront is the most renowned clubbing spot in Peru, with La Huaka serving as the centrepoint until it opens its doors for the last time on 30th March. Why will it be sorely missed? Just ask Apollonia boss Dan Ghenacia. “La Huaka is definitively one of my favourite clubs in South America. The vibe is always crazy and people really get the music. It's amazing to be so far away from Europe and yet feel at home!”
