Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon's enduringly cool Lux Fragil sustained its pivotal vibes through 2017 and into 2018, with some stunningly impressive programming. Rivalling any top flight club you could care to mention, there have been visits from Dâm-Funk, Prosumer, Optimo, Steffi, Danny Krivit, K-Hand, Jeff Mills, Daphni, Michael Mayer, Maya Jane Coles and Levon Vincent, spanning everything from weirdo electronica to driving Detroit techno. Elder statesman of house DJ Harvey chose the venue, along with the likes of Berghain, Ministry in London and Concrete in Paris, for his series of worldwide residencies. And he knows his onions. Long may Lux continue to shine.
