DJs Like It Big

Text by Nick Lawrence (HigherFrequency)

Obviously not too exhausted from tallying up the votes from last year's top 100 DJ poll, the crew behind DJMag have once again employed all sorts of complex algorithms to decipher just which clubs are the best in the world. The magazine, which turned fifteen years old earlier this year, asked an impressive 600 DJs to list their top three favourite clubs from around the world so thatcWell there doesn't always have to be a reason.

What the list showed was a strong British-Balearic connection with nine of the top ten clubs being located in either Ibiza or the UK. The only club with the power to break that link forged by Fabric, the End, Pacha and others was Tokyo's Womb nightclub. One more trend was clear throughout the list, DJs love big clubs. The top 50 was comprised largely of clubs with a capacity over 1000 with some even breeching the 5000 point. Notable exceptions were Robert Johnson, Herbal and Cielo which did little to sway suspicions that the survey may have included a question regarding remuneration.
