Poll 2023: Guendalina

Location: Santa Cesarea Terme, Italy.

Capacity: 4,000

Although Naples is the most prominent hub in southern Italy’s club scene, postcard perfect Santa Cesarea Terme is its most alluring destination. An unspoilt gem outside Lecce, here Guendalina is a magnet for ravers from the region and beyond. Comprising three rooms — Arena, Terrace and 2017-addition Salento Arena (reserved for the biggest events, including Panorama Festival) — the venue hangs off the country’s most easterly point, and so guarantees jaw-dropping sunrises, not to mention top-drawer bookings. Visitors in the coming months get Peggy Gou, Solomun and The Martinez Brother, alongside long-standing resident Gianni Sabato and new arrival Franceso Dinoia.
