DJ Mag’s Top 100 Clubs is back! The united voice of rave has spoken again, giving us another chance to present a definitive cross-section of clubland today. These are the world’s best churches of dance, chosen by those who really matter – you, the general raving public.

Once again, you’ve voted in excess of 150,000, this tie on Facebook, so we’ve assessed the dynamics of the international circuit based on our findings. Which are the the world’s top clubs? Which are the clubs rising, sinking or catapulting onto our horizons over the past twelve months? Cross-referenced with last year’s poll, we’ve tracked the movements of this constantly evolving industry, connected the dots between the votes and the geographical, social and economic dynamics affecting clubland along the way…

Is Ibiza still king? Or have the mighty BRIC economies finally taken over? What about the “EDM” madness storming the States right now…?

Relax, guys. All will be revealed. Just grab your specs, [scroll down] and get stick into the biggest, most definitive clubs poll in the entire world!
