The Beatles, Michael Jackson, The Ramones, Kaskade, Markus Schulz, Erick Morillo are some of the responses to the question, ‘Who has played at the Avalon in its 90-plus year history?’ The longtime Hollywood landmark, transformed into Avalon — both in brand and in structure — in 2003, and since that time has been a consistent spot for electronic dance music. This doesn’t mean that the venue doesn’t get continuous upgrades, in all areas: aesthetics, audio and production, but you know you’re going to get your money’s worth, no matter what the night.

Avalon’s key nights are its staple Control on Fridays, where the best of the harder bass sounds can be heard, and the more high-profile Saturdays, where the marquee level of the DJ — Carl Cox to Calvin Harris, Tiësto to Sasha & Digweed — dictates the experience.

No matter what the night or who the DJ, Avalon’s immersive lighting and high-resolution LED installations, the largest subwoofer installation in any club, as of a few years ago, with six bass cabinets in the main room featuring 40-inch subwoofers.

If you’re looking for a more intimate experience, pop over to Bardot, Avalon’s club-within-a-club with its boudoir feel and inviting indoor-outdoor design.
