HÏ IBIZA 50 things you cannot miss in Ibiza this summer

All eyes are on Hï Ibiza, the club formerly known as Space, this summer. The most eagerly anticipated club launch on the planet since London’s fabric opened its doors back in 1999, questions of the style and DJ lineups that await us at the new Playa d’en Bossa venue have been big topics of conversation during the chilly months on the White Isle.

Walking into Hï Ibiza for the first time, the thought that immediately hits you is why isn’t every nightclub designed like this? The island has not had a new build venue in years and so the opportunity to create something very special has not been missed by Yann Pissenem and his design team. The car park is no more, a new sweeping drop off system and beautiful trees now sit in front of the club where the queues will form. Th e main room now known as the ‘Theatre’ is a piece of modern beauty…a futuristic haven of technology and comfort dominated by a lighting system nicknamed ‘Th e Twist’ snakes overhead. Each night at Hï Ibiza will have a different set up with a new DJ booth and production for every show; Prydz on Tuesdays will feature a new take on his mind-blowing stage show, Garrix and his Multiply logo takes on a new lease of life and as for Glitterbox, well let’s just say it will be disco heaven. Over in the other area of music the ‘Club’, it’s a much more intimate affair. Low ceilings, a wicked DJ booth with the DJ at eye-level where you can imagine things will really go off . The key words that Yann keeps mentioning as he takes us on his Hï Ibiza grand tour are ‘organic’, ‘energy’ and ‘flow’. He cannot stress enough how important is was to change the floor layout of the venue first and foremost, “the traffic problems were always immense at Space” he admits. At his new pleasuredome your route through audio pleasure couldn’t be easier. Lavish toilets are everywhere including the wonderful blacked out unisex room complete with video screens - just fabulous! But where the venue really comes into its own are in the outside areas. At the side of the venue you’ll fi nd the ‘Magic Garden’ a music-free outdoor area with lush greenery where you you can mingle and relax. Th ere’s also a VIP area that rises up from the ground floor of the Theatre to the premiere etage. Therein lies Hï Ibiza’s beauty. Everyone inside this nightclub of the future will feel privileged to be inside Pissenem’s idea of what the perfect club should look like. It’s that good. Musically, it’s as across the board as one dares in season one… Monday - Martin Garrix, Tuesday - Eric Prydz/ Andrea Oliva, Wednesday - Armin van Buuren/Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Th ursday - In Th e Dark with Kölsch, Luciano, Joris Voorn, Steve Lawler and Nic Fanciulli, Friday – Glitterbox including Basement Jaxx, Masters At Work and Roger Sanchez, Saturday – superstar Black Coff ee, Sunday – Hï Sundays including Afrojack, Oliver Heldens, Hardwell and Jonas Blue. Watch out for Deadmau5 joining Prydz too, unmissable. It promises to be an extraordinary summer at Hï Ibiza and no doubt with praise will come criticism. But you have to applaud the people behind this stunning nightclub most exciting new venue the island has seen in decades. There is a genuine feeling that we have been blessed with a musical playground to rival anywhere in the world. The scene is set. Come on Ibiza, let’s show the world what we can do…
