Poll 2024: LOD

Location: Kathmandu, Nepal 

Capacity: 2,500

LOD is located in a city — Kathmandu — that is perhaps not immediately known for its dance music clubs, but the venue’s d&b audiotechnik sound system, state-of-the-art hydraulic lights system and its cutting-edge production and staging have made it one of South Asia’s most exciting venues. Opened in 2019 in a 9,600-square-foot former car park, LOD’s concept is to blend a rock bar and electronic music night club, with its multi-purpose design set up for both DJing and live performance. LOD puts on one-off and regular events, from club nights featuring international DJs and acts, to nights promoting emerging Nepalese artists. In the past, LOD has booked DJs including Timmy Trumpet, Tom & Collins, Plastik Funk, Quintino, Mr Pig, and Ayo, and notable appearances so far this year include Wasback, Burak Yeter, Nobilee and Rachana Dahal.
