Spring Break

As EDM surges in popularity, cities around the world are popping up as clubbing capitals. Las Vegas has overtaken Miami and Ibiza as the world’s top dance music destination, but cities like Buenos Aires, Tokyo and Zrce Beach have nurtured scenes that make more established club towns green with envy.


Electronic music has become particularly popular in Brazil. In 2011, ticket vendors in Rio de Janeiro collected $515 million for EDM events according to the Rio Music Conference, up 56 percent from the previous year. Fueled by a surge of young professionals in the middle class, Brazil’s new clubbing generation has made its country’s clubs some of the top rated in the world, attracting big festival brands, celebrities and internationally touring DJs.


Most recently, DJ Mag has named Balneário Camboriú’s Green Valley the best club in the world, taking down the 25-year old legendary club veteran, Space Ibiza and Vegas darling Hakkasan. Armed with a Vegas-caliber light show, CO2 cannons, confetti explosions and EDM A-listers, Green Valley is a fully immersive clubbing experience that embraces the country of Carnival’s sense of extravagance.



Despite its over-the-top nature, the club has roots in the rave scene, starting out in 2007 as a tent jumbled together to host Carl Cox. Since then, Green Valley has evolved and added to its experience, culminating in a technically advanced mega-club that houses VIP tables, multiple bars, underground rooms, a pizzeria, shopping boutique, hair salon and more.


Also making DJ Mag’s list is Balneário Camboriú’s Warung, specifically made for clubbers with tastes on the deeper side of the EDM spectrum. With an open-air, Balinese design, this beach club attracts some of dance music’s most venerated names like Dubfire, Richie Hawtin and Ricardo Villalobos.
