The words 'legendary' and 'iconic' are a couple of perfect ones to start a colourful description and summation of the Ministry Of Sound. Because this beautiful London club, that's currently heading for a 30th anniversary next year, is most deserving indeed. Back in 1991, with a vision inspired by trailblazing New York house venues, MoS set out to enthrall the clubbing community with something purpose designed and built, as well as a soundsystem quite likely to rattle your ribcage and blow your mind.
Over the years, Ministry has blossomed and evolved, bending and weaving with the needs and musts of its followers and newcomers. A stalwart collection of residencies continued to thrive over the past 12 months, with The Gallery, Groove Odyssey and Glitterbox amongst a few of the promoters loyal to the venue, and DJs like Markus Schulz, Nicky Romero, Aly & Fila and Danny Rampling being just a dash of the demi-gods that return every year.
