Following on from the closure of Space Ibiza last summer, the future of the direction of Ibiza’s nightlife was thrown into a realm of uncertainty. The island’s constantly changing landscape presents an escalation in clubbing competition between the island’s biggest brands as the White Isle tug-of-war between an increased VIP culture and the original Ibiza spirit continues.
Despite a recent boom in EDM and the arrival of the island’s and arguably most advanced clubbing institution, Hï Ibiza, one venue still flying the flag for the iconic charm that originally helped established Ibiza as the party capital of the planet is that of San Rafael favourite, Privilege Ibiza.
First starting life out as Ku Ibiza, such beginnings are considered absolutely essential in formulating the Ibiza tale as to what it is today. From the days of the no-holds barred Manumission parties to its sunrise sessions in the Vista Club, Privilege Ibiza has always broken down existing boundaries and exceeded expectations, no questions asked.
Ensuring the deliverance of a summer you probably won’t forget anytime in the next decade, here are six reasons why Privilege Ibiza will own Ibiza in 2017.
With the ability to hold a maximum of 10,000 dance music enthusiasts, Privilege Ibiza stands as the biggest club in the world. Often compared to an oversized golf ball when staring at it from the outside, Privilege Ibiza has undergone a huge refurbishment for 2017 both on the inside and on the outside.
Widely regarded as one of the crown pieces of Ibiza’s clubbing jewellery, Privilege Ibiza has completely transformed its inside appearance by the removal of its swimming pool thus increasing its dance floor space as well as changing the outside with some brand new gardens.
Despite being several changes to the island over the past 15 years, there has always been one successful constant… any event involving Carl Cox. Therefore, when it comes to behemoth bombshells being announced, none come bigger than that of Pure Carl Cox.
Having hung up his residential headphones at Space Ibiza last October, the king of dance music is back for two very special nights at Privilege Ibiza on both Tuesday 11th and 18th July. Taking inspiration from his Pure Festival vibes from down under, Carl will jam-pack the main room of Privilege Ibiza to the maximum offering an unrivalled experience, passion and limitless clubbing spirit.
He will be joined by the likes of Joseph Capriati, Jon Rundell, tINI, Eats Everything, Eric Powell, Archie Hamilton, Darren Emerson, Hybrasil, The Martinez Brothers, Nicole Moudaber, Cassy, DAX J, Kerri Chandler, Nastia and more.
Circling humongous inroads around the globe, one arrival on the White Isle that is accompanied with heavy anticipation is that of Sasha and John Digweed’s RESISTANCE world tour. Taking charge of Privilege Ibiza every Tuesday night from 25th July straight through until 12th September, RESISTANCE will push forward-thinking line-ups, a high-quality sound and unprecedented productions.
In a residency which will act as the exclusive Balearic home of both Sasha and Digweed, they will play the opening six dates of this extravaganza without appearing anywhere else on the island together. They will usher in a wealth of illustrious names including Dubfire, Eats Everything, Guy Gerber, Matador (live), Nicole Moudaber, Paco Osuna, Stephan Bodzin (live) and DJ Tennis amongst others.
Having cemented itself as the world’s pinnacle clubbing institution for just over a quarter-of-a-century, the curtain of Space Ibiza was finally closed forever last summer. Now taking over the baton from Space Ibiza and keeping the older history of the island alive, a rejuvenated Privilege Ibiza will continue its legacy as one of Ibiza’s most historic clubs in 2017.
As previously mentioned, its earlier days of life under the title of Ku Ibiza formed an essential part of what Ibiza is today. The mesmerising days of Manumission brought Privilege Ibiza over a decade of unforgettable memories and the sunrise in the Vista Club offers unrivalled views of Ibiza Town.
By taking the baton from Space Ibiza, Privilege Ibiza will now take over the driving seat as one of the island’s most iconic clubs with such new additions as Pure Carl Cox, Afterlife, RESISTANCE and of course, Creamfields Ibiza.
Speaking of Creamfields Ibiza, one of the biggest dates to hit Privilege Ibiza this year will be none other than Saturday 5th August. Renowned for being the flagship Saturday show of Ibiza’s busiest weekend of the summer, Creamfields Ibiza is one day of the year unlike any other on the White Isle.
This year’s edition will feature performances from the likes of Above & Beyond, Annie Mac, B.Traits, Charlie Sloth, Danny Howard, Don Diablo, Goldie, High Contrast, Kölsch (DJ Set), Mistajam, Monki, My Nu Leng, Shadow Child, Steve Aoki, Yotto plus more to be added.
When it comes to sunrise sessions, nothing quite compares to the atmosphere ignited within the Vista Club at Privilege Ibiza. Finely furnished with floor to ceiling windows, the very best views of Dalt Vila and a sunrise of trance-inducing amplitude are on offer when you stay until dawn.
Defined by intimacy and electricity, positive vibes from the relentless sounds of House and Techno simply illuminate the Vista Club and everything you experience within it.
