Poll 2024: Surreal Park
Surreal Park

Location: Camboriú, Brazil 

Capacity: 20,000 

Dreamt up by Renato Ratier, Surreal Park is set over 102,000 square metres in the south of Brazil, and it lives up to its name with five distinctive dancefloors. At Bells — also known as the techno barn — a huge bell hangs over the DJ booth, and there are goats up in the roof. Later in the year the venue opens JETSET, a new stage built around the body of a Boeing 727-200. And this summer it hosted an outdoor stage, Ritual, inspired by Ratier`s 2023 album of the same name, which had a capacity of over 10,000 people. Small wonder then that Surreal Park welcomed 160 artists in 2023, including Loco Dice, Nina Kraviz, Seth Troxler, Boys Noize, Mind Against, Dixon, Stephan Bodzin, Carl Cox and Black Coffee. While floods and currency depreciation made it a tough year for the club and the country in general, Surreal Park was also able to draw on its loyal clubbers to organise food and clothing collection campaigns for those in need.
