For those of you who made it to all of our recommended events last week, we salute you.

If you are willing to accept the next challenge, or are simply wanting to hit the best parties without having to battle through the internet, we are coming right back at you with another seven show stoppers.

This week will see us back in our natural habitat Amnesia, a rare live show from Larry Heard and some unusual Sankeys action.

Here we go again! 

Monday 17 July - Cocoon - Amnesia
Line Up: Sven Väth, Ricardo Villalobos, Dorian Paic, Alex & Digby, Nina Kraviz, Carl Craig, tINI.

There really is only one place to be on a Monday night in Ibiza. Ricardo Villalobos has consistently been one of Amnesia's hottest tickets and we are not going to risk missing another showdown with him on the terrace.

Alex & Digby have been turning heads this Summer too so we are overjoyed at catching the newcomers again. Kraviz, Craig and tINI take on the main room. Power!

Tuesday 18 July - Mosaic - Pacha
Line Up: Maceo Plex, DJ Koze, Levon Vincent, Angel Linda, DJ Fra

We can hardly believe our eyes, DJ Koze is back in town! The Cologne producer is consistently at the forefront of the scene musically and as a DJ he has earned his stripes as one of the scene's most unique selectors.

The island is buzzing at the prospect of having the multi-award winner and Kompakt/ Pampa favourite back at the controls, however, we must not overlook Deconstruct/ Novel Sound bossman Levon Vincent here; the New Yorker is a sound to behold on any bill.

Wednesday 19 July - Hyte x Fuse - Amnesia
Line Up: Loco Dice, Floorplan, Culoe De Song, Enzo Siragusa, Seb Zito, Rossko

Gone are the days Loco Dice was playing every single event we could think of - which only makes catching him that little bit more special.

The Desolat ring leader will play under the monster collaboration of Hyte and Fuse, alongside a rare visit from Robert Hood under his Floorplan alias who will give us an intense taste of Detroit. The Fuse crew firm up the bill. We can not wait to see Amnesia tainted by this combo. 

Thursday 20 July - Unusual Suspects - Sankeys
Line Up: Valentino Kanzyani, Mandar, Frederico Grazzini b2b Rick Maia, Traumer, Saoirse, Haiku575

We have had a few weeks off but it's time to get right back at it with some Unusual Suspects and what is arguably a season highlight line up.

Each artist is weighty contender, but we are particularly hyped for Mandar's (S.A.M, Malin Genie and Lazare Hoche) back to back show, Traumer and Saoirse. The Irish lass is rumoured to be playing a hush hush event later in the week, too. Keep your ears to the ground.

Friday 21 July - Wildlife - DC10
Line Up: Annie Mac, Disclosure, Tiga & Audion, Denis Sulta.

British sibling duo Disclosure have moved up the ranks at an alarming rate since their album Settle was nominated for a grammy back 2014. Their success is built on mainstream appeal as well as love from clubland and their lineups similarly chart a neat line between the underground and the overground. Harvey and Robert Hood are just two of the names lined up over the next few weeks to make this one of the island's most talked about parties. BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac headlines this week's show alongside Turbo Records boss Tiga, Audion and Denis Sulta. This will be the first of just four parties and Disclosure are taking some time out next year, so if this is your cup of tea, don't miss it.

Saturday 22 July - Black Coffee - Hï
Line Up: Black Coffee, Mr Fingers aka Larry Heard (live), Peggy Gou, Hector, Jesse Colasso, David Bernie

After cancelling several legs of his UK tour, anyone on the island should not sleep on the chance to catch Larry Heard play one of his highly acclaimed Mr Fingers live shows.

The Chicago legends has provided some of the pillar tracks of house music and his live shows soundtrack his trademark 80's Chicago house roots. We have our fingers crossed for a jazz fused rendition of 'You Rock Me' if you are reading Larry!

Sunday 23 July - Cuckoo Land - Ibiza Rocks
Line Up: Huxley, Josh Butler, Detlef, Latmun, Jamie Roy, Drew Moreland & Pat Hickey

Ibiza Rocks have just beefed up their sound system so you can expect this party to wobble more than a few drinks off their tables on Sunday. Josh Butler will be show casing some unreleased music from his new label - Heroes of House and the line-up drafts in some big players from house music's new school.

The party is rounded off nicely with Saints & Sonnets hot shot Huxley, Viva Music favourite Detlef and Latmun. Winner
