PERENNIAL favourite Guvernment is one of the largest party spaces in North America. The club is part of a massive complex that also encompasses Kool Haus, a concert venue of choice for mainstream pop acts (come on the wrong night and you might end up seeing Ke$ha). However, insiders know that the club’s best events are the bank holiday celebrations and its birthday in October, which opens up the party to the complex’s full 10,000 capacity – thus making this Guv the de facto capital of the Canadian party empire.
Since 1996, Guvernment has built a worldwide reputation, hosting many of the world’s top-tier DJs. Sasha, Paul Oakenfold, Chuckie, Nervo, Mark Oliver, Carl Cox, Steve Lawler, Roger Sanchez, Dubfire, much loved residents Manzone & Strong, Laidback Luke and Royskopp have all played there in the past year. Up next, catch Avicii, Steve Angello and Decadence 8, a night featuring Axwell, Kaskade, Tiga, Calvin Harris and Boys Noize.
