Ibiza Diary (Coming Next Week)

This is a quick blog pre next weeks diary entries. No doubt whatever we got up to over there next week will provide some insight into the island and of course our silly raver heads but I just wanted to outline what our battle plans were so if anyone has a special interest in a place they can tune in to see what the place is like from a true consumers point of view. No DJ favortism, music mag bias, snotty journalist write up, just pure 100% how it is gonna be for YOU or rather how it was for me and my merry band of trance warriors, techno kids and minimal yeads!!

We have made a commitment to each other to have it as large as humanly possible and I promise you all that I will bring describe it to you in as much delicious detail as I (legally) can!!

The definates are Circo Loco @ DC10, Be @ Space, Cream @ Amnesia, Zoo Project. I am of course allowing for a few nights of spontaneity to see where the island takes me. I will also try to check out Sankeys and feel that I have missed out on the Fiesta del Agua in the past so will try to write up what a night at that landmark party is like.

If your interested in any of these then check out my Ibiza diary next week…

One Week To Go…

Only one week to go and I can barely contain myself, this time next week we will have touched down on the white isle and begun with the fun and fiesta’s!The wait is killing me, its been a long time coming and summer can truely begin! What makes the wait even more difficult is that my girlfriend flies out on Tuesday, this week is definately going to be a long one!

The 5 of us in my party have spent the last week organising which nights we intend to go and what will be the best way to get tickets, time constraints of our flights have led us down the route of pre booking tickets before we go (a first for all of us).

We have been using Spotlight and the Spotlight app to book and I must say that the prices are good and the claims they make about being able to get in on their guestlist when we get there have proven more than persuasive. It also states that only through them can you be guaranteed entry and not just before a certain time. I will update on my return whether these claims are true or false.

Price-wise the Spotlight app is pretty competative, I have heard a number of fantastical stories about cheaper entry and guestlists left right and centre but none of any real substance. Hopefully Spotlight will come through for us and if so will have made our afternoon and early evening ticket hunting time redundant allowing for more beer and bouncy house music and that can only be a good thing!

Peace, Love and Techno

 

 

29 more sleeps…

Its just over 4 weeks now until we fly out and with the Cream opening party kicking off tonight it seems apt that I post my second blog. All those jammy mofo’s are over there now, sun going down and all there night is going to entail now is 8 or 9 hours of deep tech trickery and massive trance monsters from PVD and co!! A night of lazers, hands in the air, walls of sound, ice blasts, hugging strangers, indoor sunnies and out and out Creamy goodness!! Jealous!!

So they all get to smash it to the sounds of John O’Callaghan and I write to you from my appartment in Manchester, I may not be there in person but I am certainly there in spirit (thank god my girlfriend loves techno too). Daily texts between the lads are flowing with excitement for when we go and we are counting down the days, holiday clothes are being bought and an untold amount of sit ups are being painstakingly ploughed through! The rituals have started, podcasts downloaded to keep up on the summer bangers, calenders checked and re-checked to make sure we hit the clubs we want and catch the tunes we need,¬† the websites and rumour room scoured and verified to make sure we are with the cool and sexy, young and trendies! We WILL get the most out of our time!!

I really urge everyone who reads this blog and is making a pilgrimage this summer to do everything that is in your power to take one new person with you this year, I will personally buy a return flight for anyone who isnt 100% hooked after one night!

Peace, Love and Techno…

 

 

 

Ibiza Countdown!

Hello everyone

Summer is here!!! My name is Paul and Gary has very kindly let me write a blog on his site that I hope will appeal to Ibiza veterans and newbies alike. If you have already made a pilgrimage then I am sure at some point you have struggled to explain to your friends or people who arent quite up on the scene how special a place Ibiza is? If you havent made it there yet then I urge you to read this blog, believe the hype and have the time of your life at the centre of the universe!!!!

You cant really put your finger on it but there is something about that island and the beautiful crazies that inhabit it that is so infectious that it has us thinking about it 24 hours a day 7 days a week until that time comes back round that we can shake reality loose and be who we want to be in a sea of hedonism and music!

I am going to Ibiza again this summer on the 17th of July with a small group of friends, all white isle veterans and what I want to bring to you is first of all a countdown of what we are looking forward to, past exploits, expectations and then ultimately diary of our experiences for the 7 days we are over there, a blow by blow account of what the island has to offer!

The fact of the matter is however that you could get one hundred people writing one hundred accounts of their experiences and all will be as dazzling and as different as the last! Ibiza addicts all over the world  I hope you enjoy reading about our time on planet Ibiza and it sets you up for your summer of peace, love and music!

Much Love

Paul
