Toronto Announces New Superclub As The Guvernment’s Spiritual Successor

It’s been almost a year since The Guvernment shut its doors once and for all. North America’s longest-running entertainment complex, which featured a maximum capacity of over 5,000 people, closed its doors in style after 19 years.

 

With a three night b2b2b showcase featuring Armin van Buuren, Knife Party, and Toronto’s very own Deadmau5 back on January 23/24/25 of this year the undisputed king of Canada.

 

Toronto’s spent the last year trying to find a spiritual successor to the nightclub. INK Entertainment, the owners of The Guvernment, founder and CEO Charles Khabouth believes he has finally found what he was looking for with the upcoming closure of another Torontonian nightlife staple, Sound Academy.

 

As it stands now, Sound Academy is one of the oldest venues in Toronto. That hasn’t stopped EDM staples such as Hardwell, Carl Cox, Steve Angello, ODESZA, The Chainsmokers, Armin van Buuren, Deadmau5, and many, many more from taking to its stage in just the past six months!

That said, you have about 30 days left to check out Sound Academy if you haven’t already, as January 2016 will see the club close its doors in its current state for the final time.

 

The new venue, which is still to be named, will also feature two floors with private VIP access, sprawling views of the city skyline and a seamless connection to the luxury outdoor lounge, Cabana PoolBar – which has seen its own fair share of EDM shows as a Torontonian summertime hotspot. The venue’s main feature will be a 65-foot stage with an expansive installation of LED video walls.
