Welcome back …
Ibiza says NO! In the midst of the calm and quiet winter season on our island the plans of the Spanish government to consider oil drilling just off the coast of Ibiza caused an unified and decisive resistance movement by almost all residents, no matter the income or occupation. Thousands sent letters of endorsement and 130.000 people signed the petition. ‘Ibiza says No’ became a massive social movement also on Facebook. At the moment the drilling plans that would endanger the environment and could cause havoc for the tourist economy of Ibiza are shelved but we will have to keep an eye on any new developments in this row that occupied the island for the last months.
Ibiza says YES! On a more positive note the summer of 2014 looks to be one of the most fascinating and lucrative of the last few years. We say YES to Luciano’s new ‘Origins’ party at Amnesia for Cocoon on eight Mondays! YES to Guy Gerber’s ‘Rumours’ party which is planned for the Plan Be venue near Santa Gertrudis. And a big YES to one of our favourite parties El Row joining Kehakuma at Space – a double bill that proves fantastic value for underground clubbers.
Some other big news from Space this season: Trance will return to the venue with Ferry Corsten’s ‘Full On’ parties taking over ‘Clandestin’ every Friday. ‘We love Sundays’ under new Safehouse management looks great with a varied line up and Loco Dice’ only Ibiza appearance of the summer on August 10th when he will celebrate his birthday at the ‘world’s best club’.
Just over the road from Space, with a new focus on the massive EDM-hype, Ushuaia booked Avicii, David Guetta, Hardwell, Ingrosso/Axwell and Armin van Buuren for weekly events. With Cova Santa on the other hand the underground scene will have a new open air venue with Luciano and Solomun’s Diynamic parties having been confirmed already. The venue on the road to Sant Josep is known as a restaurant but has also been used for ‘Music On’ afterhours as it is owned by the heads behind Amnesia. No surprises there, by the way, the San Rafael venue won’t change its successful party week: We are looking forward to fridays ‘Music On’ (with special guests Carl Cox and Jamie Jones) and Sven Väth’s ‘Cocoon’, which will return for its 15th anniversary season, featuring Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano and Richie Hawtin.
With the most concise party calendar on the island, all the latest news on the popular boat parties and running interviews with the biggest talents of the electronic music scene, the CLUBBINGE BIBLE will be your faithful escort on the island!
Have a great summer and say YES!
