Saturdays in Ibiza mean one thing for islanders and tourists alike – time for another epic adventure under the sun and stars, time for The Zoo Project! Another crazy week of parties had been ticked off the Ibiza summer calendar and with that came Saturday and a day trip to the Zoo.
Chicago house legends Virgo Four headlined the evening with a live set involving synthesizers, keyboards, vocals and a bass guitar. It was an awesome show featuring many of their much-loved Trax Records classics. The Mountain People and Hunee provided ample headline support and staying true to their ethos of giving up and coming talent the opportunity to flourish alongside established names. The likes of Zoo residents Federico Grazzini, Funk E & Michael James were all on song with some fabulous sets.
The Zoo Project on Saturdays has become something of a religion on the white isle in recent years. It’s a festival-like atmosphere, unrivalled on the island, encompassing swimming in the pool, a spot of sunbathing, kicking back in the hammocks, BBQs, a host of quality DJs and a whole load of booty shakin’.
This week was no exception with thousands of party people eager to throw some shapes to the sound of some eclectic musical treats. It was another magical day at the old zoo in Gala Night Park with zebras, lions, fairies, gorillas and some of the sexiest species of dancer you’re likely to see!
Each and every summer the Zoo experience improves. Zoo is not simply a party; it’s a get away from the hectic Ibiza lifestyle, a day and night out with a difference. A whole host of new weird and wonderful performers and entertainers awaits while those fancying a bite to eat with a twist can try this year’s latest addition to the food on offer – the Asian fusion BBQ with fresh sushi, tuna steaks and spicy salads all on the menu.
A selection of massage therapists and healers provide the perfect respite from all that dancing with the chill-out vibes of the Bull Pit artists in the background. Body painting, souvenir stands, tarot reading, gorillas climbing trees – just a small example of what’s going down at the Zoo on a Saturday.
The Zoo Project runs every Saturday until 28th September.
Let’s Zoo it!
