Situated an hour away from Sau Paulo, on the same rolling green hillside in Valinhos, Brazil are sister clubs Ame and Laroc who have just announced an incredible few months of music between them. They will be welcoming the likes of Pete Tong, Bushwacka!, Gui Boratto, Kolsch, Nastia, Patrice Baumel, Ferry Corsten, Aly & Fila, Nicky Romero, ALOK and elrow between now and the end of July.
Ame has an open-air feel, with a vast ceiling suspended 16 meters up, and production inspired by the colour and patterns of the jungle that surround it. The next few months in this suave and exotic venue are set to be huge, with March 30th welcoming Pete Tong, Bushwacka!, Gui Boratto and Elekfantz before Kolsch plays on May 18th. Nastia then follows on June 22nd and Patrice Baumel on July 20th.
Laroc is right next door, boasting a huge pool, LED panels, confetti explosions, massive pyrotechnic displays and stunning views. Voted as one of DJ Mag’s Top 100 clubs, the ethos of the club is to have DJs start in the early afternoon and play during sunset, creating that special moment with the crowd.
On April 13th, Sunnery James, Ryan Marciano, Bruno Martini and Chemical Surf all play, then Ferry Corsten, Aly & Fila and Sevenn play on May 4th. In June, Nicky Romero and Cat Dealers visit on the 1st, ALOK on the 29th and then elrow bring their next level and dream like production to the club on July 13th.
