Despite Ibiza’s fabulous natural assets – its spectacular scenery, miriad beaches and cultural legacy – the island achieved its global fame through the handful of superclubs that sprang up here throughout the 1970s.
Names like Pacha, Space, Amnesia and Ku (now Privilege) became famous for providing a huge stage for top ranking artists of the moment year after year, genre after genre.
Over the last couple of decades, with the advent of globally renowned DJs and dance music, Ibiza has become the global headquarters of the new musical movement. The place where the world’s biggest names had to find their annual residency for the summer. Some of the biggest, including Pete Tong and Sasha, have even upped sticks and made Ibiza their home.
However, all would acknowledge that the atmosphere in the huge Ibiza clubs is unrivalled, and not because of their sheer size or splendour.
The unique atmosphere is that created by thousands of people, pink from their day on the beach, letting their hair down to some of the finest sound systems to be found on the planet, with a holiday vengeance.
Little wonder the world’s finest DJs want a piece of the action…
