Location: London, UK
Ministry of Sound is a world-class London landmark. It's a four-roomed beauty of a nightclub, a leader and forward-thinker, and it's just about to turn 30 years old! There are few places to dance that can compete with the main room, The Box, which has one of the best soundsystems in the world — it's a right heart-thumper, with Martin Audio ground stack speakers that surround the dancefloor. It also has one of the largest outside spaces for a club in London.
Like a finely-tuned and well-oiled machine, Ministry Of Sound has stayed on top of its game by paying constant attention to the wants of its followers. A large clutch of loyal nights have been the true crowd pleasers in recent years, like sparkling house purveyors Glitterbox and Defected, Groove Odyssey, Toolroom Records, Horse Meat Disco and Milkshake. It's the constant tweaking and welcoming of big-name DJs mixed with burgeoning talent that make up the club's success story.
So, Three Decades of Dance. It'll be three big events over September 17th and 18th, with Paul van Dyk doing a 30-years-of-trance set on Friday, a classic house act (to be announced) all-dayer on Saturday, and Groove Armada and Armand Van Helden on night duty.
