It's no secret that here at DJ Mag HQ we just love a poll, so we're delighted to announce that the next instalment of our Top 100 Clubs poll powered by Miller Genuine Draft is now open! From now until Febuary the 19th, we'll be racking up hundreds of thousands of votes from clubbers worldwide, before we announce the 2016 winner in our April issue. Just like our Top 100 DJs poll, our Top 100 Clubs edition allows us to take a snapshot of dance music's most popular trends, as well as shifts and changes in dance music tastes globally.
For example, last year proved an insane year for Brazilian clubs in particular, with open-air dance arena Green Valley taking the coveted No.1 spot in the 2015 poll. Located in the lush beachside city of Camboriú, Brazil, Green Valley has long been a hotbed of local and international talent, with resident DJ Rodrigo Vieira describing it as “more of a festival than a traditional nightclub”. It's no surprise that the venue feels like a festival when you consider the club's whopping 8000-person capacity — when Brazilians go clubbing, they go big! Another eight Brazilian clubs also made the cut last year — you can find out more about them by watching our Top 100 Clubs: Brazil's Best Night Clubs documentary via DJ Mag TV below.
The White Isle also continued its reign as the ultimate destination for ravers last year, with four out of seven Ibiza clubs ranking in the Top 10 in 2015. Techno-heavy clubs in Italy also got a look in, and made up 5% of last year's finalists, with famous nightspots like Tenax and Cocoricò making the grade. US clubs also did well, occupying a whopping one-fifth of all entries, with Las Vegas venues counting for 5% of the Top 100.
A diverse selection of other nations were also represented in the poll, alongside clubbing meccas including Ibiza, Berlin and London, plus lesser-known party destinations like the Philippines, China, Vietnam and India.
But if you want to see your favourite hotspot in the poll then you need to vote! Have your say by heading over to our Facebook page, then 'Like' us to register your vote.
We can't wait to see who'll be crowned 2016's best club — keep your eyes peeled for the results in April!
