This week I’ve started my bikini diet and taken up running, which can only mean one thing…the Ibiza 2014 season is nearly here! The club opening parties start happening towards the end of May with the club nights kicking off from June onwards. The season will keep dancing until September/early-October. So what’s in store for us party-lovers this year…will the old favourites be back? Will there be any new nights to get excited about? Will there be any surprises?
Here’s what we know so far:
Cocoon will reign on Mondays at Amnesia again!
One of the best fiestas on the isle is celebrating 15 years in Ibiza! The opening party will be on 2nd June and Sven et al will be pumping out energetic techno every Monday until 29th September. This one’s a must do.
…and Luciano’s going to be there too
Island favourite Luciano is planning an eight week takeover of Cocoon entitled ‘Origins’ taking full control of the terrace each week and getting his mitts on the main room twice. He’s also continuing his ‘Luciano and Friends’ residency but moving it from Ushuaia to the Amnesia-owned Cova Santa on Wednesdays 3pm til 6am – dates TBC.
Sankeys is the home of the underground…
Now in it’s third year Sankey’s Ibiza has established itself as the most underground and grimy club you’ll find on the island. The club opening party will take place over two nights on 21st and 22nd May. Danny Tenaglia, Steve Lawler, Hot Since 82, Darius Syrossian will be some of the big names hitting the decks.
…and Duke Dumont will make it his home on Mondays
Every Monday from June 30th until September 1st the radio friendly Duke Dumont will be showcasing tunes from his newly minted Blasé Boys Club label.
Other Sankeys favourites are back too
Every night is party night (of course). CUFF (created by Amine Edge and DANCE) will be returning to Thursdays. Flying Circus (Audiofly and friends) are filling the Friday night spot and Steve Lawler’s VIVa Warriors will be taking over on Saturday’s once more.
Carl Cox will be attracting the biggest headliners to Space on Tuesdays
It’s gotta be Coxy on Tuesdays at Space. Last year he rebranded his night to ‘Music is Revolution’ and the name is here to stay. The techno legend attracted some very enviable line-ups last year and for 2014 he’s announced that he’ll be bopping his way through his longest season yet; 14 weeks from June 24th through September 23rd. Names like Pan-Pot, Adam Beyer and Mano Le Tough have already been confirmed. Drool.
