After almost 20 years at the centre of the city's music scene The Guvernment is closing its doors. 

Toronto's biggest nightclub will soon be turned into condos but is marking this, its final weekend, with three nights of music, dancing and big-name DJs. 

Longtime resident DJ Mark Oliver says the club, which opened in 1996, brought people together.

"Some of the biggest nights that I've witnessed were Gay Pride weekend," Oliver told CBC News. "But then you'll have Coldplay the next weekend with a completely different crowd … it just catered to everyone."

Oliver is among the DJs playing Saturday night. Deadmau5 plays the final night on Sunday.
