There always tends to be a dip in numbers the week after the opening, but that doesn't have to be a negative. We all like our dancing space and its not like it will be a ghost town in there. Jamie Jones - Tania Vulcano - Kerri Chandler - Chris Liebing - Nic Fanciulli - Patrick Topping - Ben UFO lead the way for what should be a highly enjoyable Monday in the sun.
They say 'The metamorphosis is almost complete. Now we just need you'. We say 'and boy is that true'. This launch is arguably the most important party in Cocoon Ibiza's history although the initial impact (this party will be a huge success) will need to be sustained across the whole summer for us to believe the second incarnation of one of THE iconic Ibiza parties will be permanent.
Sankeys host one of the island's most forward thinking nights in Unusual Suspects. Last week's launch was exceptionally well attended, despite it being early season and there's a cracking line up in store this week as tINI goes b2b Molly and Lamache b2b Voigtmann.

This is an intriguing one. A well programmed new event at Eden. Now we have seen this attempted a few times over the years and rarely has it worked. Defected has been the first sustained success at the club and - all being well for Religion - has greased the rails for this mob to come in and do well. Tiefschwarz, East End Dubs, and Sebo K lead the way on this and there are some cracking line ups down the road although Ibiza success requires way more than that. We wish them well. The artwork could do with a polish, mind.
From what we can gather, this is Ushuaïa's attempt at grabbing a piece of the shamanic house action (we think that's what its called) and putting their spin on it. Given what we think that scene actually is, it's our opinion that this party should ultimately work quite well across the season. We wouldn't immediately identify a line up of Luciano and Adam Port as the flag-bearers of that sound but there you go. Intriguing none the less and - as with Cocoon - will be judged across the season. Definitely worth a look.
Oh its a big one. Whilst the rest of the island are gathering pace and working their way through the gears, elrow are already bringing out Seth Troxler, Pan-Pot, Cuartero, Santé, De La Swing and Mario Biani. If it's not rammed, we will walk around town naked. Honest.
