The go-to club in Rome for underground electronic music
Immersed in the Ostiense neighbourhood, in the Libetta area, Il Circolo degli Illuminati has become one of the reference points for Roman nightlife. The club is located in the center of Rome, just 100 meters from the Garbatella metro stop.
Circolo degli Illuminati was born from the ashes of the mythical Classico in Via Libetta, and has since then revolutionised the space. The mission is simple: to not only discover and look for forms of art in music, but to also interpret and share them in an atmosphere that stimulates the participation of each one.
With three different clubrooms and an ample garden, the club offers a wide variety of musical genres. Three rooms with three different styles. The main room oriented toward House – Tech House, Room02 rather Hip Hop and Room3, a perfect place to relax while sipping a cocktail with chill music.
But Circolo degli Illuminati’s strongpoint is Minù: a weekly Saturday night party that cannot be missed. Think electronic music played till the afterhours creating an incendiary atmosphere. And it’s not only the audience who appreciates it, Deejays who perform at this venue are always happy to play.
Among the DJs who have already performed are: Skrillex, Oliver Koletzky, Margaret Dygas, Hunee, Hvob, Tobi Neumann, Tiefschwarz, Aril Brikha, Extrawelt, Stacey Pullen, Francesco Tristano, Valentino Kanzyani and many more.
This year’s program focuses mainly on the new English scene, with names like the young masters of IDM Mount Kimbie and Actress; the now legendary resident of the club Fabric Craig Richards; and the UK garage school with Denis Sulta, Midland, Pearson Sound, Felix Dickinson, Shanti Celeste, Joy Orbison, Willow.
Other focal points of the program are the veterans of the Parisian house Cabanne, D’Julz and Shonky and the Berlin music scene is represented by Edward, Tama Sumo and Virginia while the Italian by Ivan Iacobucci and Massimiliano Pagliara. Grabb and Baba Stiltz, two characters who seem to be destined to conquer the electronic world scene in the coming years, are eagerly awaited.
But attention to the resident deejay is one of the fundamental points of these kinds of events. And Minù promotes two young local talents: Sawe and Demi James and has the privilege of being able to rely on two internationally renowned deejays such as Lowris and Jan Krueger: leading names for the French and German houses respectively.
Always full of pleasant surprises ,the 2018 season will host the best DJ sets of the tech-house, electronic scene and beyond.
Circolo degli Illuminati also boasts a restaurant – Azienda – where you can indulge in aperitivo or dinner.
