Much like how Hoover is the adopted nomenclature for a vacuum cleaner, El Row is the synonym most true dance heads use for Row 14.

Starting out as an afterhours event during Sonar in 2009, since it's been forced to revert to the evening/night, due to changes in licensing laws.

None of this, however, has prevented Row 14 from scoring highly in this poll once again, its reputation no doubt bolstered by El Row's presence in the newly souped-up back room of Privilege (Ibiza) last season.

Reasons for its unbridled success are clear. Its generous deployment of balloons, inflatables and foam floats, coupled with a booking policy encompassing only the purest in top-notch techno talent (Loco Dice, Richie Hawtin, Marcel Dettmann), ensure this sultry terrace party is arguably Europe's most fantastic. Think DC10 with party hats.
