The Site Died :(

You will have noticed over the last few days that the site has been down. Unfortunately we suffered a massive double blow of bad luck when the server i am hosted on broke beyond repair, then the backup server went down beyond repair, Luckily all my posts and info were stored on a different machine so nothing has been lost.

You may be able to tell that there are still a few errors that need cleaning up on the site. Give me time to clean them up and i will be back with loads of great news including the opening for space

Keep with me

Amnesia Fined €28,000

Amnesia have been fined a total of €28,000 for not complying to the opening hours in Ibiza. The fines are all from events last year that did not close on time. As it has been discussed at Ibiza Spotlight, €28,000 is not much for the club to have to pay from the takings of a whole season of nights. This is very true but i think it may be seen different in the eyes of the Ibiza council. The council want these clubs to close on time thats why the fine has been imposed but if a fine does not stop the clubs from following the rules then the punishment may change to something that will make them change. Remember what happened to Amnesia last year? Closures could be the next step which is something nobody wants!

To Trance Or Not to Trance

The latest gossip for today is that Armada will not carry on with their night in Amnesia but Armin will play for cream. Im a bit gutted about this because I thought Armada was a really good night. The music was always really good the tickets prices didn’t sting too much and it was never as packed as cream.

The second rumour is about Tiesto, Word has it that Tiesto will take up a residency at Privilege this summer, His couple of nights he did last year were a great success and it sounds like he is responding to that.

Change To Amnesia Opening & People From Ibiza

It appears that Amnesia have moved forward their opening party by one week. Amnesia will now have its opening party on the 7th June 2008 and People from Ibiza on 14th June 2008. This is rumoured to have moved because Manumission wanted to have their opening party on the 13th June which was before the original opening date of June 14th.

Confused?? Check out the Ibiza Opening Parties 2008 thread
