EL FORTIN
New Entry
Position: 
47

Situated not far from Green Valley and Warung, El Fortin sits within the stunning beach community of Porto Belo — smack bang in between Camboriu and Florianopolis — a stretch of coastline considered the Brazilian Ibiza. Surrounded by dense hills lush with tropical greenery, these two dancefloors set beneath giant wooden shacks represent the pure essence of underground clubbing in Brazil.

Less about VIP posturing and more about getting lost in the pulsating rhythm, El Fortin shares more with neighbouring shanty warehouse club Warung than the festival-like glitz and glamour of Green Valley, where bookings have involved house and techno's finest — Magda, Popof, Paco Osuna, Amine Edge & DANCE and Stephan Bodzin — during its 10-year lifetime. A first time in the poll this year, we have a feeling it won't be the last.
