Comebacks and unexpected Alliances
Ibiza Summer Season 2015 – All you need to know!
A new Ibiza summer has knocked at our doors, ready to burst into blossom. Looking into a crystal ball, we can assure you it’s going to be hot, loud and wonderful. Here is a quick breakdown of the long-awaited comebacks, astonishing moves and unexpected alliances that season 2015 is bringing to the table.
First and foremost, the wandering minstrels are back in town! Vagabundos by Luciano are taking over Sundays in Space on a weekly basis. There have been many popular, massive, packed parties on the island, but hardly any was loved as cordially as Vagabundos. Since they dropped off the radars in 2013, morphing into Luciano & Friends and lately Origins, we always suspected that black and white top hats would make a triumphant return one day. Opening and closing dates, as well as the line-ups for this and other parties can be found in our calendar.
As anyone who visited the island in the past 17 years can easily remember, Sundays at Space always belonged to We Love, a festival-style event that set on fire both big and small rooms of the club. That was the party that put Space on the international clubbing map and turned the venue into a true Ibiza sensation. Yet times change, vibes change: in 2015 We Love for the first time ever will take place in Sankeys on Wednesdays. A more intimate ambiance will certainly help punters discover new facets of one of the most emblematic events of the island.
After Booom, the small stylish upstart of the Golden Mile of Ibiza, was forced to shut its doors forever too prematurely, its parties had to look for a new shelter. Suara did so literally, teaming up with Shelter, the new Friday night by Ibiza Rocks team in Sankeys. Glitterbox put their bets on Space terrace on Fridays. Defected moved in with Together, taking over Amnesia terrace on Tuesdays and launching probably the most surprising partnership of the year. Taking into account the difference between the sound of the two dancefloors, the guests of this night will never have a chance to get bored.
However, this year the mix-and-match prinicple is the purposeful policy of Amnesia: La Troya has moved to share Sunday nights with The House of Madness, and Paris Hilton’s Foam & Diamonds have been sent to Saturdays to reinforce Matinee. This cleared the way for HYTE, another techno party, that has landed on Wednesdays, right between Cocoon and Music On. The arrival of HYTE brought about a certain redistribution of DJs: Loco Dice, Maceo Plex, Chris Liebing and Pan-Pot among others will now be the residents of this aspiring newcomer. Well, Ibiza’s appetite for techno is unquenchable, after all. Read the Pan-Pot interview on page 10!
After the disastrous Gatecrasher season, Eden club is back under its original name. With its superb décor, light and sound this venue definitely deserves a better destiny. So far, five nights have been confirmed: Colors Festival on Mondays (trance party by Alex Cunnari that used to take place in Es Paradis), the telltale-named Harder, Faster on Tuesdays, Cubbo on Thursdays (hard techno event with headquarters in Barcelona), the return of Judgement by Judge Jules on Fridays, and Faux Basement on Saturdays (deep house paradise).
On the free party front, Beach House is stepping up its stakes. Every Tuesday it will host Diynamic Outdoors, which is bound to be a blast – who wouldn’t like to listen to Solomun for free and al fresco? Same applies to Sundays when Guy Gerber is taking over the lovely beach venue from 5 pm until midnight.
Another staple of Playa d’en Bossa dancing in the open, tINI & the Gang, has moved to the minimalistic cutting-edge beach club of No Name. This happened due to the fact that Sands doesn’t exist anymore: now this venue belongs to Nassau and goes by the name of Nassau Tanit Beach.
The most exciting news of the season, however, is connected with DC10. The label of the moment, Life & Death will be hosting weekly parties there from July 31 till August 28. We’ve all been so looking forward to it, and the wish came true.
We wish you a wonderful summer with lots of fun, great music and happy moments!
