According to the website of Resident Advisor, the main room of Tbilisi’s most popular night club was the place where the idea of 24/7 electronic music events was born:

“Bassiani's main room was where the idea for 24/7 emerged: it was 11 AM Sunday, DJ Qu had been playing for far longer than he was obligated, and the crowd showed no sign of letting up. Not only is it the first-ever 24-hour event in the space, in keeping with the spirit of the series we're opening up a previously unused terrace especially for the daytime session.”

After holding the event in Georgia, Resident Advisor will head to New York in July, then to Milan in September, Bogota in October, Melbourne in November and, finally, end in London in January of 2019. The venues for those cities, as well as the lineups, will be revealed during the coming months.

Each event will have a limited capacity, so the website of RA suggests its readers to register for pre-sale ticket link and information to access tickets before they go on general sale. You can do so here.
The entrance of Bassiani

“The biggest techno club in Tbilisi, Bassiani is a maze of poured concrete in the basement of Dinamo Arena, Georgia's national football stadium. On Saturday mornings, once the sun is up, you can watch smoke drift across the pitch, belched upwards from the party downstairs, where as many as 1200 people shuffle around an empty swimming pool. From there you can take in the whole scene: countless silhouettes on elevated catwalks and a sloping dance floor, encased in a room whose vastness becomes clear only in brief flashes of colored light,” this is how the website of Residence Advisor describe Bassiani.
In 2017 Georgia’s Bassiani was named among the world’s clubs

It is also worth mentioning that in 2017 Georgia’s Bassiani was named among the world’s clubs by Hostelworld.com. In total the list included 20 clubs of different countries and Tbilisi’s Bassiani occupied the leading position among them. Tbilisi’s major club has even been coined as the clubbing hotspot after Berghain, Berlin, by the Guardian.
