As Ibiza begins to awaken from her winter slumber, the soundwaves are already buzzing with news of big changes, new arrivals, and some extremely exciting news on the Ibiza party scene. Of course, here at Ibiza unlocked ,we always have our ear to the ground when it comes to the latest and greatest gossip on the club scene. Here´s what we have heard so far, and it´s making our dancing feet tingle with excitement as we anticipate yet another fabulous season on the White Isle for 2018.
The one piece of news that has had EVERYONE talking is of course the unexpected change of venue for the legendary Sven Vath, who, having enjoyed an undisputed reign at Amnesia for a staggering 18 years, has announced that he will be bringing his iconic Cocoon weekly party to rival club Pacha each and every Monday for the 2018 season. We are waiting with baited breath to see how the die hard Vath fans will adapt to this change of venue, yet are confident that the master of house will live up to his already flawless reputation for bringing the very best in cutting edge house and techno music to Ibiza´s original party venue.
On a more sparkly vibe we are all delighted to hear that the islands funkiest night, the much lauded Glitterbox Friday parties will be making a welcome return to Hï Ibiza this summer, bringing with them their own inimitable blend of funky house, disco and rare grooves, so dig out your sequins and shimmy and shine with the Glitterbox crew again this year. Promoted and managed by Defected record label owner Simon Dunmore, the Glitterbox crew have seen their popularity go from strength to strength in recent years, building up a loyal following of both island residents and holidaymakers alike with their unpretentious, friendly vibe, and their stellar cast of special guest DJ´s including of course our very own island grown Melon Bomb boys. Watch this space for more news of their lineup for summer 2018.
Other big news for the club which enjoyed resounding success after taking over the hallowed grounds of Space, which was no mean feat but they managed to exceed all our expectations, is that Eric Prydz will be bringing back his epic progressive house sets for his weekly residency at the superclub, bringing a completely different, down and dirty vibe to Glitterbox, attracting a different yet just as cool crowd of clubbers.
Over at Amnesia, we are super excited that the most colourful party on the island, Elrow has been confirmed as returning to its spiritual home for yet another season of fun and frolics. This party has achieved something of a cult status in recent years due to its outlandish entertainers, theatrical style and crazy costumes, with many of the partygoers themselves joining in the circus style theme, getting into the spirit with a kaleidoscope of colourful characters. The music perfectly complements the vibe, with a creative curation of the very best electronic music for your earbuds.
If you´re heading to San Antonio this summer, then there´s only one place to see and be seen, and that´s Ocean Beach Club, who recently announced their summer schedule for 2018, which is jam packed with a non stop agenda of poolside parties, which always attract a glamorous , young and funky crowd. We will be partying with resident DJ´s Tom Crane and Grant Collins at the opening party on 18th May, and returning regularly to join in the action at their Hed Kandi, Kisstory and Soul Heaven events throughout the summer.
Sticking to the shores of San An, Ibiza unlocked’s old party partner and long term friend Brandon Block will be making a long overdue return to the White Island with a residency at the beautiful Es Paradis club, we are sure he is going to take us all back to the good old days with his own cheeky selection of old school vibes at his aptly named What the Funk parties which will run every week from 28 May until 27 August. See you on the dancefloor!
