While XS’ Sunday Nightswim started the trend and Surrender’s Splash Dance still draws rave reviews, newcomer Eclipse at Daylight took it to new depths this year to win this category. While booking talent such as Nicky Romero, Skrillex and Zedd helps, the differentiating factor is the Ibiza-inspired layout. There’s a giant, dome-shaped, concert-style stage crested by massive LED towers, with the pool perfectly centralized to offer the best views in the venue. That is, of course, unless you’re fortunate enough to party in one of the stage-side bungalows, where you can watch the show from your own private tub.
