DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 Clubs poll is now open for voting. This is a celebration of the world’s best dancefloors and the ranking is entirely based on votes from DJ Mag’s global audience. Last year’s poll saw over 600,000 verified votes being counted, and the results were highly anticipated by fans and industry insiders alike. This year’s voting period began on 11th January at 12:00 GMT and will run until 15th March at 23:59 BST.

Top 100 Clubs 2023 comes at a time when most clubs around the world are finally able to operate normally, after a long period of uncertainty and restrictions due to the pandemic. This year’s poll results will be closely watched to see how this affects the rankings.

Last year’s Top 100 Clubs poll saw a diverse representation of clubs from all over the world, with Europe being the most represented continent. Clubs from Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, and the UK joined the poll for the first time, while five European clubs held their position in the top rankings, including Bootshaus in Cologne, fabric and Sub Club in London and Glasgow, DC-10 and Pacha in Ibiza. Corsica Studios in South London also made a re-entry into the poll.

The United States reclaimed the title of the number one clubbing country from the UK, with 16 clubs in the 2022 list, up from 13 in 2021. Four new clubs joined the poll, including two in California, one in Boston, and Zouk Las Vegas. Canada also saw a rise in its club rankings, with Stereo in Montréal rejoining the poll for the first time since 2019.

In South America, there were fluctuations in the club rankings with some losing and others gaining positions. However, the addition of the Surreal Park venue in Brazil balanced things out, bringing the region’s number of ranked clubs into double figures.

The biggest surprise in last year’s poll came from Asia. The region has been a strong presence in clubbing for several years now, but the pandemic impacted its club rankings, leading to a decrease in the number of clubs from China and Asia overall. The region only gained one new club, Lord Of The Drinks in Nepal.

It will be interesting to see the trends for 2023 and how the results of the poll turn out. Will Hï Ibiza be able to maintain its top spot, or will Ushuaïa Ibiza give them a run for their money? Could there be a post-pandemic rebound for the clubs that were unable to fully operate in 2022?

The fate of the rankings is entirely in the hands of the voters, so make sure to have your say by voting here.

Vote for the evolution of clubbing!
