Over the past few years this poll has been something of a two-horse race. In 2012, Space Ibiza was victorious for the second time in a row, only to be usurped by Brazil’s Green Valley the following year. Then, last year, the Balearic king regained its throne… until, you guessed it, Green Valley pipped Space Ibiza to the No.1 spot once again in 2015!
This ongoing struggle might be an exciting spectacle, but this tussle is also reflective of a wider dynamic. A 25-year-old venue, probably the most professional in the world, established within the world’s leading clubbing destination (Space Ibiza, in case you hadn’t got it), competing with an enormous festival-sized jungle club inside what’s proving to be the world’s most tenaciously emerging nation for dance music (yep, Green Valley). And this time, the latter has snagged it.
