Swedish House Mafia @ Pacha 2011

Swedish House Mafia don’t really need much of an introduction any more, everybody under the sun wants to see them as became apparent to me when tickets sold out to their Manchester show in minutes, then Steve Angello’s night sold out ridiculously quickly as well!!

Everything they are touching is turning to gold and they have become somewhat invisible in the world of dance music. They have complete two seasons in Ibiza so far and their popularity seems to be getting stronger and stronger every year.

On a personal note, i think the Swedish House Mafia are a guilty pleasure, i like going to see them because the atmosphere they generate is intense, they can get a crowd going and to borrow a phrase from Richard Keys, they ‘Smash it’! It feels guilty though because their music can be cheesy and commercial, at the end of night though it always feels worth it!

In 2011 i expect the night to be more popular than ever and this could be their downfall, they are staying in Pacha and reports came out last year about the club being that full people didn’t feel safe in it, Ibiza has more amazing clubs in a small area than anywhere else in the world, it may have been safer for everyone to move to a bigger club not to mention they would make more money from it!

The theme for 2011 has not been released yet, neither has the line-ups but Ibiza Spotlight do have the dates for the opening and closing parties. If your on the island this year then i would recommend you pay a visit, however expect a high ticket price and a very busy club!

Opening: 6th June

Closing: 26th September

Es Paradis Opening 2011

The 20th May will see the opening of Es Paradis for the summer season.

Es Paradis hasn’t been at the forefront of people’s clubbing plans since the days of Clockwork Orange which is a great shame, Inside it’s an amazing place to party and it has a lot to offer, i try to make a visit whenever i can especially if i am with friends that have never been to Ibiza before, Its definitely a club everyone should see.

Bora Bora Opening 2011

Bora Bora is a funny place, once the coolest party on the island, then laws kicked in and a health and safety got a conscience, the guy who started it left .

The party still goes on but it’s never quite the same, I went down a couple of nights last year and it was rammed, Spiderman was doing his shift and the music was good, but it seemed so different!

This year, Bora Bora will be opening on Friday 20th May with Oliver Lang, I’m not sure if the closing date is accurate or that it means Oliver lang is there every week but the event page on Oliver Langs myspace  it has a closing of October 3rd.

Savannah Opening

It’s the first of March and Savannah have just tweeted with the excitement that they are opening next month! I don’t always keep track on when the bars open in Ibiza but it makes sense that they open before the season starts properly.

This means that Savannah will be opening in April for the summer season.
