LAST year, DJmag readers voted Sankeys the No.1 club in the world, and while it may have slipped a few places, it clearly still remains at the height of your affections. And it’s easy to see why. As well as being one of the most tech-savvy clubbing experiences on the surface of the earth, with an innovative barcode entry system that fast-tracks clubbers into the venue, futuristic dr, including blinking Disco Panel LED lights, and a perfectly crisp Phazon soundsystem, Sankeys holds a host of flagship nights. The well-established Bugged Out! boasts the best in electro, rough techno and house, regularly boasting guests of the calibre of Laurent Garnier, Erol Alkan and Boys Noize; Manchester’s own trance king Gareth Emery’s label night Garuda rules the roost once a month on Saturday nights; the super-cool Carnival event snags all the hottest names in techno/house music, while drum & bass ‘n’ dubstep session Religion has everyone from Marky, Bryan Gee, Plastician, Chef and Coki dropping in. All bases covered, clearly.
