Starring Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Roger Sanchez, Solomun, Claptone and many more
This year is the 25th birthday of Greece's most famous nightclub, Cavo Paradiso. The Mykonos club is now officially the longest-running in the country, and they've just rolled out a suitably star-studded summer schedule to mark the occasion.
Situated atop a 40-metre-high cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea, the stunning nightspot has been a mainstay of the Greek club scene since opening its doors in 1993, with early visitors including the likes of Frankie Knuckles, David Morales and Louie Vega. Since then, the club has consistently brought the cream of the world's DJ talent from right across the electronic music spectrum to Mykonos, and with them the clubbing tourists - so much so that the club won an International Tourism Award in 2009 for its contribution to the local economy.
The club's open seven nights a week throughout July and August, meaning there are far too many DJs booked for this season to list here. But highlights for the house and techno lovers include Claptone (13 Jul and 31 Aug), Richie Hawtin & Paco Osuna (18 Aug - the club's official 25th Birthday Party), Sven Väth (20 Jul), Marco Carola (22 Jul and 13 Aug), Luciano and Agoria (24 Jul), Ricardo Villalobos (27 Jul), Roger Sanchez & Kristen Knight (28 Jul), Solomun (1 Aug), Martin Solveig (2 Aug), Loco Dice (3 Aug), Nina Kraviz (5 Aug), Amelie Lens (7 Aug), Hector Couto (13 Aug), Nicole Moudaber and Chris Liebing (17 Aug), Bob Sinclar (19 Aug), David Morales (21 Aug - the club's second official 25th Birthday Party) and Hector Romero and Quentin Harris (23 Aug).
Alternatively, if EDM is more your bag then this season will also see visits from DJ Snake (16 Jul), Steve Aoki (17 Jul and 6 Aug), Armin Van Buuren (19 Jul), Steve Angello (21 Jul and 16 Aug), Diplo (25 Jul), Nicky Romero (29 Jul), Hardwell (31 Jul), The Chainsmokers (4 Aug), Afrojack (9 Aug) and Sebastian Ingrosso (14 Aug).
That's a pretty impressive talent roster whichever side your dance music bread's buttered, we're sure you'll agree. So congratulations to the Cavo Paradiso crew on their anniversary, and here's to 25 more years!
