Avalon is a fixture of Hollywood. The historic building has stood firm through many iterations, the pandemic is just another blip on its radar. The home of progressive house and trance on the West Coast, Avalon hosted many livestreams with international trance superstars during lockdown. The venue’s staff stayed busy during this time, redesigning the stage and DJ layout and adding hanging trusses above the dancefloor.

This facelift was a fun surprise for the venue’s patrons when they were able to return to the ornate venue this summer. Avalon hit the ground running with Wolfgang Gartner, Hook n Sling, and Borgeous, and has Morgan Page, Julian Jordan, and Thomas Gold coming up, among others. Saturday nights host Avalon’s two-decade-strong house, progressive house and trance night, with Kristina Sky and Randy Seidman in the warm-up slot quite often. The latest musical style featured on Fridays is reggaetón, in the form of the Gasolina party. The venue is getting ready to launch a techno night on Thursdays.

No matter what the genre, Avalon’s state-of-the-art sound, lighting and visuals, combined with its ideally sized dancefloor and overlooking balcony form just the right setup.

Avalon remains one of Los Angeles’ longest-running and most-consistent dance music venues. Every nook and cranny of this multi-level historic space has been restored with minute detail. For almost two decades, its central dancefloor and its deep stage have been a reliable place to hear new electronic music in multiple formats, as well as beloved and longstanding favourites in house and trance. While the almost-100-year-old building’s structure remains steadfast, Avalon regularly upgrades its production, keeping on the cutting edge of nightlife technology.

One of the few venues in Los Angeles with a late license, parties play out on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Residents like Paul Oakenfold, Markus Schulz and Morgan Page play alongside Delta Heavy, Hernan Cattaneo, Sander van Doorn and Wolfgang Gartner, as well as a solid representation of emerging local talent.

This past year Avalon has also hosted a number of label parties, among them, Coldharbour Recordings, Mau5trap and Axtone, and it is one of the very few venues in Los Angeles able to offer some under-21 nights, bang in the heart of Hollywood.

The Beatles, Michael Jackson, The Ramones, Kaskade, Markus Schulz, Erick Morillo are some of the responses to the question, ‘Who has played at the Avalon in its 90-plus year history?’ The longtime Hollywood landmark, transformed into Avalon — both in brand and in structure — in 2003, and since that time has been a consistent spot for electronic dance music. This doesn’t mean that the venue doesn’t get continuous upgrades, in all areas: aesthetics, audio and production, but you know you’re going to get your money’s worth, no matter what the night.

Avalon’s key nights are its staple Control on Fridays, where the best of the harder bass sounds can be heard, and the more high-profile Saturdays, where the marquee level of the DJ — Carl Cox to Calvin Harris, Tiësto to Sasha & Digweed — dictates the experience.

No matter what the night or who the DJ, Avalon’s immersive lighting and high-resolution LED installations, the largest subwoofer installation in any club, as of a few years ago, with six bass cabinets in the main room featuring 40-inch subwoofers.

If you’re looking for a more intimate experience, pop over to Bardot, Avalon’s club-within-a-club with its boudoir feel and inviting indoor-outdoor design.

This club lives up to its name in plenty of ways, not the least of which is the historic structure it inhabits — The Hollywood Playhouse, built in 1927, has been home to countless prolific acts and events spanning generations, from the Beatles to the Grammys.

The club received a major upgrade a few years back which included, among other things, the world’s largest subwoofer club installation (40-inch cones — just ask Google what that means). And according to owner John Lyons, “it creates earth-crushing subbass.” Needless to say, DJs taking the stage for Avalon’s wildly popular Friday night trap and dubstep-centric Control series are probably pretty happy campers.

Of course, earth-crushing bass doesn’t mean obnoxiously distorted: it means clean, crisp and all-encompassing. That’s why you’ll see the best names in deep house, techno and electronica show up for work here, too. Case in point, in a single week last month, Avalon’s booth hosted trance man Andy Moor, old school drum & bass icon Dieselboy, and masters of progressive melody Darren Emerson, Danny Howells and Dave Seaman. Old Hollywood would be proud to see legends still playing at its beloved Playhouse.

Not one to fall prey to ageing, the club received a major upgrade in 2014 which included, among other things, the world’s largest subwoofer club installation (40-inch cones; just ask Google what that means). According to

owner John Lyons, “It creates earth crushing subbass.” Needless to say, DJs taking the stage for Avalon’s wildly popular Friday night trap and dubstep-centric Control series are probably pretty happy campers. Of course, earth crushing bass doesn’t mean obnoxiously distorted: it means clean, crisp and all-encompassing. 

That’s why you’ll see the best names in deep house, techno and electronica show up for work here, too. Case in point, Avalon’s booth recently hosted dynamic duo Jody Wisternoff and Nick Warren with the revival of their legendary Way Out West moniker and Hernan Cattaneo b2b Danny Howells. Old Hollywood would be proud to see legends still playing at its beloved Playhouse.
