When it comes to Ibiza, Luciano is a man who has been there, done that and developed a very clear vision for the future.
Man-of-the-millennium Luciano and his merry Cadenza Vagabundos crew are pulling out magic, mystery and the greatest of tracks for the last Sunday this season at Pacha Ibiza. Dust off your top hats and enjoy a rollercoaster of organic, electronic, carnival-esque sounds from inside the Vagabundos’ dirty little sleeves as Luciano, Michel Cleis, Andrea Oliva, Lee Van Dowski, Reboot, Robert Dietz, Digitaline Live, and Angel Linde bring an underground sound to the Global Room in world’s most iconic club on Oct 7, 2012.
Who’d have ever thought that a little pink dot could cause so much hype and excitement in Ibiza? Well, for starters, anyone who’s familiar with my blog – and my ongoing obsession with Luciano and my newfound love for Richie Hawtin – not to mention the legions of Cadenza and Enter fans who’d been eagerly awaiting the ‘top secret’ line-up announcement for September 13 at both Ushuaïa and Space. Enter.Cadenza. Cadenza.Enter. Whatever way you look at it, it just seems so… right… up my alley!
Of course, I was beside myself with excitement for the entire week leading up to the double header event. Please allow me to walk you through the proceedings as I relive the magic of the pink dot…
Luciano is back at Ushuaïa every Thursday for the season with the Cadenza crew. With his surprisingly lighthearted and fun musical sets, the atmosphere is akin to the old daytime vibe of Space – except with more eyeliner, moustaches and top-hats! Half-nude, twirling acrobats and outlandish pyrotechnics make for a spectacular carnivale vibe and anything-goes mindset at this not-to-be-missed poolside party.
Check out the Ibiza clubbing video of a Monday morning in Ibiza, where Luciano’s Vagabundos can still be found partying somewhere on the island. These secret Vagabundos afterparties take place sporadically at Ushuaïa Ibiza.

As most readers of my blog know, I’ve been quite an avid follower of yours for some time now (anyone who says I’m a stalker is just exaggerating, honest). In terms of the amount of time I’ve spent dancing while you’ve been in the DJ booth at various venues over the years in Ibiza, we’re probably on an even par. I was the first one to cheer when you made the move to Pacha, I wholeheartedly supported the Vagabundos guy-liner phase, I’m addicted to your parties at Ushuaia and I hang out for Wednesdays just waiting to hear your updates on the Cadenza Podcasts…
But recently, there’s been just a few little things I’ve noticed that I was hoping we could discuss… Read more

Glamour, glitz and all things gorgeous shine inside the whitewashed doors of Ibiza’s most iconic nightclub, Pacha – the former Ibiza town farmhouse that began life as a disco in 1973. Décor and music fuses together to make the Ibiza nightclub dramatically different on a daily basis, interlaced by a maze of stairs, doors, secret corridors, courtyards, multiple VIP sections, podiums and more.
