A Mass Exodus From Pacha

2013 seems set to be a very different year in Pacha. I have already blogged recently about Tiesto not holding a residency with Pacha in 2013 with Tiesto claiming its too much to do it every year.

Yesterday Defected announced that they to will be leaving Pacha to set up camp elsewhere. Simon Dunmore said the following

Ibiza’s clubbing landscape, however, is rapidly evolving and these are exciting times. Continuing a tried and trusted formula would have been the easiest option but next summer will be our tenth on the island and our achievements last summer give us a great platform to look at the new opportunities available to us. So, to conclude, we will not be at Pacha next summer and shall announce our plans for 2013 early in the New Year.

It sounds like they have some exciting plans, and the fact that they have announced they are not in Pacha signals to me that they plans are probably confirmed.

The above are stories straight from the horse’s mouth. However, when i was first reading about this on Mixmag, they threw the following in at the end

There are also rumours circulating that Cadenza and Pete Tong are very likely to be leaving, along with David Guetta, Tiesto and Eric Prydz weekly nights possibly relocating to an alternative club.

Now, i find it hard now days to remember who played in which clubs in which years, but im pretty sure Eric Prydz did have a night in Pacha last season.

Take from the above what you will, i personally think that if five out of the seven promoters from one club are upping sticks and leaving all at the same time, then there has got to be trouble from within.

I could see Cadenza on the terrace of Amnesia or in Space, i could See Pete Tong anywhere and everywhere! I wouldn’t be surprised to see a collaboration of nights filling Privilege.

Time will tell, but it gets the brain thinking on a cold Friday afternoon!

Carl Cox Birthday Special

Carl Cox celebrates his birthday today (Its The Big 50) with a special free party down at Sands in Playa Den Bossa. He has already played the opening party there this year which sound really cool. This time, he has a few friends with him to make the day that bit more special. Pete Tong will also be performing. The set times are as follows (UK Time)

14:00 to 16:00 Igor Marijuan (Ibiza Sonica)
16:00 to 18:00 Pete Tong
18:00 to 20:00 Carl Cox
20:00 to 21:00 Igor Marijuan
21:00 to 23:00 Antz

If your in the area, head down, its a free party and Sands is a nice beach bar with amazing food. If your not in Ibiza at the moment, then you can still be part of the action and listen live online through Ibiza Sonica at www.ibizasonica.com

NOTE** they have said different set times on air which had Pete tong and Carl Cox switching times so im not sure which is correct.

Usher @ Ushuaia

Yes, you have read that correctly! Usher will be performing at Ushuaia one week today on the 7th July! Labeled as a Pure Pacha / ‘its all gone’ night Usha will be supported by a host of Dj’s including Pete Tong, David Morales and a very special Dj guest that is still to be announced.

Usher in Ibiza has come as a big surprise and its not something i expected, however i think Ibiza Rocks has taken the shock and horror out of something different landing on the island!

If Usher floats your boat then got down to Ushuaia, if he doesn’t, the Dj line-up looks good enough to go anyway 🙂

Wonderland @ Eden 2008

As was revealed in my last post, Pete Tong will take over Fridays at Eden with his night Wonderland. The night is set to be direct competition to Pure Pacha which Pete has just left. This could be a good night but may fail to attract the crowd pacha have because of its location. Pete Tong is the weekly resident as you expect and he also has Groove Armada hosting the funky room every week.
