Poll 2024: Academy LA
Academy LA

Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA  

Capacity: 1,500  

Nestled in the heart of Los Angeles, Academy LA is the latest incarnation of a venue that has previously been known as Create Nightclub, Vanguard, and Qtopia. It has been under the auspices of Insomniac Events since 2018, however, and made huge strides with its state-of-the-art Funktion-One sound system. The club's dynamic line-up of events showcases an eclectic mix of world-renowned artists, from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike to Alan Walker, and includes nights such as Dreamstate for trance, Factory 93 for underground sounds, Bassrush for bass, Lost in Dreams for melodic, Basscon for hardstyle, and Day Trip for house music.  

Boasting five distinct rooms adorned with 145 customisable LED curved ceiling panels, 55 moving lights, and several CO2 cannons, the club offers an experience like no other in the region and looking ahead, Academy LA remains committed to elevating its offerings with plans for thematic soirées and much more throughout 2024 and beyond.
