Tucked away in an obscure strip of Hollywood Boulevard, between The Museum of Death and the infamous Florentine Gardens Nightclub, lies a haven for EDM nightlife in Los Angeles, Create Nightclub. Over the course of its lifetime, Create (formerly known as The Vanguard) has hosted some of the biggest names in the industry including Zedd, Nicky Romero, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren among many others. The Hollywood staple has seen a partnership with L.A. based Insomniac Events in bringing these artists to the stage and has seen a resurgence in popularity since then.

Over the last few days on social media channels, Insomniac began to tease what seems to be a complete revamp of the venue, name change and all. Dubbed AcademyLA, the overhaul of the nightclub will see its debut on January 12 with a performance by Krewella.

With the change of name, we will also see a new logo– a minimalistic bold triangle (symbolizing the ‘A' in Academy) inside a square. According to EDMIdentity, AcademyLA will also feature upgraded sound, lighting, and other production elements with its revamp.
