OM OSS

 

The Villa is an underground club sanctuary that has quickly achieved a reputable status thanks to a consistent run of interesting, current, and cutting edge bookings. Located in the center of Oslo, The Villa provides a place where people are able to come, leave their inhibitions at the door, and dance the night away to the beats of both national and international respected DJs.

 

The Villa was voted the 54th best club in the world by DJ Mag in 2009 in a survey where 500 of the world’s best DJs cast their vote (this was up from the 94th place it was rewarded the year before). In 2008 it was also voted by the readers of Resident Advisor to be one of the top 100 clubs in the world. And at the end of 2014 it was chosen as one of the top 25 clubs in Europe in an article featured in The Guardian written by dj’s, label managers and promoters.

 

The ethos The Villa lives by is to focus on quality sound, quality music and state of the art light design. The sound is pretty unbeatable. The Funktion One speakers are truly allowed to shine within the impeccable acoustics of The Villa. The light design is courtesy of Roomdivision, the same company that has designed lighting for clubs such as Panorama Bar, Watergate and Arena Club in Berlin and Spark Club Taipei 101 in Taiwan.

 

The list of highlights in The Villa’s history is lengthy. A few unforgettable moments include when Kollektiv Turmstrasse caused a colossal traffic jam outside the club due to an epic line of people queuing for hours before opening, clubbers entering a dreamlike state of hypnosis on the dancefloor during Guy Gerber’s illustrious set, a 64-year-old Debbie Harry rocking the dance floor, Skream diving out of the DJ booth and surfing the crowd, and the sweat literally dripping from the walls as Bonobo worked his magic.

 

Still, it’s the pure drive and dedication from the local DJ’s and artists that makes The Villa the club it has grown to be. They know the crowd and the crowd knows them. THANK YOU!
