Poll 2024: Barbarellas Discoteque
Barbarella's Discotheque

Location: Pirovac, Croatia  

Capacity: 3,000  

Croatia offers a pretty non-stop programme of festivals from May until September each summer, and many of them — including Dekmantel Selectors, Defected, Dimensions and Outlook Origins — stop by the legendary Barbarella's Discotheque. It's an open-air venue nestled on the beach in Tisno surrounded by lush vegetation, and whether dancing under the hot sun or a starry night sky, it offers premium sound and sympathetic lighting that all add up to a cosy, organic and bohemian experience soundtracked by some of the best in the game. Few clubs in this list have the throwback, uncommercialised feel of this one, which is what makes it so great.
