Another Ibiza season just started, and this summer is going to be very special! A lot of interesting changes happened this year…
2013 - the year of changes
New club “Bomba” (now Booom!)
First of all, there is a new mega club on the island called “Bomba”. The venue is situated near the harbour of Ibiza Town and hosted the “Penelope” in the past. A real nightlife pro took over the place: Danny Whittle. After being responsible for the bookings of Pacha for years it was time for an own club. Danny takes some of the biggest nights of Pacha with him to Bomba, such as Luciano’s Vagabundos, Erick Morillo and Defected. Wondering why Pacha would let all these people go? Then read further…
Pacha back to the roots
Pacha got enough of the development of DJ fees. In their eyes, big DJs earn too much. That’s why they want to go back to their roots and host nights, where the DJ is not the most important thing. The only one who is allowed to stay is one of the best-paid DJs in the world: David Guetta. Very confusing…
Ushuaia takes over
The 5 star clubbing hotel is getting bigger and bigger. Now Ushuaia took over an old hotel next to the venue, creating the luxury “Ushuaia Tower” out of it. The rooftop will host exclusive parties with a very selective door.
Ushuaia continues to have big daytime parties with their big stage at the pool area. Loco Dice takes over the Thursday slot from Luciano, presenting his new party row “Used + Abused”, while Luciano moves to the Tuesday.
But also Ushuaia learned for this season. They took the complaints of some clubbers serious, that there is too much VIP-habit on their parties. That’s why they now launched a daytime party with underground vibe called “Ants”, taking place every Saturday on a smaller pool area.
Solomun - the new hero of Ibiza
After establishing last year the very successful “Diynamic Neon Night” in club Sankeys on Tuesdays, Mr. Solomun returns to Ibiza to open up a second night! He takes over the Sunday slot of the “Vagabundos” in Pacha to present his new concept “Solomun +1”. This clearly shows that Deep House is getting bigger in the scene again.
The best parties 2013 in Ibiza
You know us, we only recommend the top-notch parties with quality music. If you are this summer in Ibiza, then do not miss these:
Mondays is of course time for “Circo Loco” in DC10. The party is like an electronic music carnival at a high level. The sound is always good and the people are awesome. Expect a more underground atmosphere than in the other clubs.
Also “Cocoon” returns to Amnesia this season. After having a hard time in 2012 with the leaving of the master mind DJs Richie Hawtin and Marco Carola (both establishing great own nights) we are curious to see, how Cocoon and their Techno will develop this year...
Godfather of Techno Carl Cox continues his musical revolution in club Space and will present very interesting artists like Nic Fanciulli or Nicole Moudaber.
After a successful premiere last summer, the shooting star Solomun returns to club Sankeys with his “Diynamic Neon Night”. If you love Deep House and neon, especially on your face, then this is the place to be.
For the second year “tINI and the Gang” will be at beach club Sirocco, presenting from around 5pm until midnight a fine selection of Desolat artists – for free!
As mentioned above Loco Dice from Desolat will present for the first time his own party row "Used + Abused” in Ushuaia, starting already really early around 2 pm. For sure this will be a new highlight on the white island.
Our last year party favourite “ENTER” returns also this year to Space. Richie Hawtin is the man behind this great night, which was only established last year. A must see!
As Ushuaia and Space are just lying opposite of each other, the Thurday will be THE PARTY DAY on the island. Seamless partying from 2 pm to 7am on Friday, this is a touch of Berlin!
Another great night, which was first created in 2012, comes back to Ibiza: “Music On” with Marco Carola in club Amnesia. Marco will create also this year an unforgettable experience for clubbers on the legendary terrace.
Underground vibe at Ushuaia. The brand new party row “Ants” will show, that the place is not only about VIP. Clubbers robed in only black clothing get discount. People, who work on the island, can register for free entry to the party row. If you become a community member on the Ants-Website, you will get free entry for one party.
On Sunday it’s time for Luciano and his “Vagabundos”, showcasing a lot of artists of his uber-label “Cadenza”. As mentioned before the party moved from Pacha to the new venue “Booom!”. For sure this is a great opportunity to see the new club.
A big surprise for everyone: Solomun establishes a second Ibiza residency, this time at Pacha. Taking over the Vagabundos-slot the shooting star DJ will host his “Solomun +1”-parties, which means, he and a special guest will play during the night.

See you in Ibiza this summer!
