It’s that time of year again: DJ Mag has opened voting for its annual Top 100 Clubs poll. You can place your vote to support your favorite clubs here. 2023’s Top 100 Clubs results reaffirmed the strength, resilience, and forward momentum of our global electronic music scene. This year’s poll promises to do the same, with voting opening today, January 10th, at 12:00 GMT and running until Friday, March 15th at 23:59 GMT. The results will be revealed on Thursday, April 25th both online and in the UK print magazine.
Almost 700,000 verified votes were counted in last year’s record-breaking poll, which boasted one of the most geographically diverse lists yet. Time will tell if Hï Ibiza will claim the top spot for the third year in a row, and if Europe will remain the most represented continent on the list with 44 clubs. With the independent nightclub industry facing challenges across the board, there could be a change in trends in 2024.
Gaining unprecedented ground in 2023’s poll was USA, which was responsible for a third of the 12 new clubs on the list. New York mega-venue Avant Gardner and The Brooklyn Mirage broke into the top 10 this year, while 2023 Texan hotspot The Concourse Project bagged the Highest New Entry slot. Canada and Mexico also pulled their weight for the North American region, with Montréal’s New City Gas returning to the poll for the first time since 2016, and Hardpop in Juárez rejoining after a 12-year hiatus from the poll’s top 100 standings. South America remained steady with 10 entries overall, six of which again came from the region’s clubbing capital, Brazil.
The majority of new entries in 2023 came instead from Asia, with Indonesia bringing two new clubs to the list, alongside one each from Japan, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates. The total African venues also rose to two for the first time since 2014, reflecting the continent’s ever-increasing presence on the global clubbing stage.
