Location: Sao Paulo, Brazil

Capacity: 1000


When it opened just after the turn of the Millennium, Sao Paulo’s D-Edge — with its state of the art LED panelling, designed by visual artist Muti Randolph — looked like possibly the most futuristic nightclub in the world.

Where other Brazilian clubs embraced the EDM revolution of the past decade, D-Edge has stuck to its guns and still books the coolest names in house and techno. This month they’re celebrating their 18th birthday with a 16-hour festival encompassing all four floors of the venue — Slam, Mark Broom, Ryan Elliott, DJ Heather and DJ 3000 are among the noted guest spinners, playing alongside founder Renato Ratier and lots of other Brazilian residents.
