Location: Montréal, Canada
Located on a small island within Montréal, and with the largest capacity of any outdoor complex of its kind in North America, Beachclub is a clubbing spot to be reckoned with. Normally absolutely heaving and almost always sold out, as one of Montréal’s only outdoor clubs, it’s built a rep as the city’s ultimate summer experience over 25 years. The likes of Tiësto, Martin Garrix, Sean Paul, DJ Snake, Migos, Marshmello and Daddy Yankee have all played memorable sets in recent years at Beachclub.
Despite being an outdoor venue, the pandemic was no less unfair on Beachclub, which couldn’t open for the summer season in 2020 like most places in Québec. The club’s small and dedicated team patiently kept their hopes up for 2021, and they’ve finally been able to get up and running for a lower-key summer season, hosting pool parties with local talent at reduced capacity on the island, as restrictions in Québec partially lifted. Beachclub’s season comes to a close in September, so the majority of the team’s efforts are currently going into preparing for a return to the island club’s full capacity, hosting big events every weekend, and welcoming back international acts in 2022.
