Ibiza clubs: Pacha Ibiza – The cherry on top
Glamour, glitz and all things gorgeous shine inside the whitewashed doors of Ibiza’s most iconic nightclub, Pacha – the former Ibiza town finca that began life as a disco in 1977 that is still very much the apple of Ibiza’s eye – or more appropriately, the cherry on top of the island’s clubbing community.
Décor, vibes and outrageous creativity meld together to transform the iconic venue on a daily basis while various dancefloors interlaced with secret corridors, courtyards and multiple VIP sections make up the Pacha world.
Mondays at Pacha Ibiza are hosted by the most mysterious artist in dance music, and the most instantly recognisable, Claptone. The man – or is it two men? – in the signature golden bird mask bring the Masquerade party every week to the iconic super club in the heart of Ibiza’s cosmopolitan marina. Stunning visuals, masked performers and a line-up of globally renowned guest DJs join the Berlin-based producer Claptone in the hallowed Pacha booth for a summer of outlandish Mondays from May until September.
Colombian reggaeton superstar J. Balvin hosts Tuesdays at Pacha Ibiza for the first half of the summer bringing more Latin music into another nightclub on the island in 2019. With recent collaborations including Cardi B, Bad Bunny and Pharrell Williams, the Spanish singing artist couldn’t be hotter right now and the heat will be rising in the marina discotheque as Balvin entertains on stage with a mixture of his latest smash records and some impromptu Latino rhymes. Oh que calor!
Scottish superstar DJ Calvin Harris returns to Pacha Ibiza for a five-week residency in the height of summer 2019. This season is the second consecutive run at the Ibiza town discotheque for the Grammy-winning producer, who makes the most of the peak season and pops up in Ibiza for a quick blast of high-profile gigs. Joined by some equally well-known guests in the remodelled booth of the iconic Pacha Ibiza, this short series of parties are bound to sell out so make your table reservation soon to be sure of the best seat in the house.
Wednesdays in 2019 belong to Ibiza’s longest running party and one of its best-loved, Flower Power at Pacha Ibiza is an island institution with its good vibes, classic rock’n’roll music and peace and love decoration instantly recognised wherever they pop up. Tune in and drop out with the love generation, wear a flower in your hair and lose yourself on the dance floor, as DJ Piti sends the legendary Ibiza nightclub back to the 60s and 70s with a feel-good retro soundtrack from the bygone golden days.
One of the biggest stories of the 2019 clubbing calendar is the bold and daring step into Pacha Ibiza by Italian techno don Marco Carola with his brand Music ON. Taking over Thursdays at the iconic marina discotheque, the dark and atmospheric sound of Music ON is a little bit different from the usual Pacha affair, so be prepared for some sell-out shows as the fans crowd in to see the transformation. With a central DJ booth and state of the art sound system, the recently remodelled nightclub is more than ready for the booming basslines and massive drops of Carola.
Innervisions and Sonar Kollectiv head honcho Dixon takes over Fridays at Pacha Ibiza in 2019, bringing some high-calibre guests to join him each week in a new party called Transmoderna. Joined by an international roster of impressive artists and producers, Transmoderna promises an innovative line-up in one of the island’s favourite discotheques, make sure you are there to see it.
Hamburg’s finest DJ and Ibiza’s adopted son Solomun owns Sundays at Pacha Ibiza, with his Solomun + 1 concept now one of the most established and guaranteed parties around. Each week the Diynamic label boss invites just one guest DJ, artist or producer to join him in the booth at the iconic nightclub for an all-night extended session where anything and everything goes. Interesting, engaging and with an atmosphere to boot, Solomun plus one, plus the whole of the Pacha crowd going nuts each week, equals one of the best nights on the island.
