Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA
Avalon remains one of Los Angeles’ longest-running and most-consistent dance music venues. Every nook and cranny of this multi-level historic space has been restored with minute detail. For almost two decades, its central dancefloor and its deep stage have been a reliable place to hear new electronic music in multiple formats, as well as beloved and longstanding favourites in house and trance. While the almost-100-year-old building’s structure remains steadfast, Avalon regularly upgrades its production, keeping on the cutting edge of nightlife technology.
One of the few venues in Los Angeles with a late license, parties play out on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Residents like Paul Oakenfold, Markus Schulz and Morgan Page play alongside Delta Heavy, Hernan Cattaneo, Sander van Doorn and Wolfgang Gartner, as well as a solid representation of emerging local talent.
This past year Avalon has also hosted a number of label parties, among them, Coldharbour Recordings, Mau5trap and Axtone, and it is one of the very few venues in Los Angeles able to offer some under-21 nights, bang in the heart of Hollywood.
