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!
Cream have announced their summer lineup for their Thursday nights in Amnesia and it looks good!
Familiar faces trough the summer include PVD, Ferry Corstan and Eric Prydz, Adam Sheridan has a few nights as well as some other really good dj’s.
The thing i am most looking forward to is the way they are using the terrace, PVD will be performing in the Terrace at the opening and closing party which will be really good and if you ask me it could be cream testing the water to maybe make the terrace the main room next year.
Paul Van Dyk’s website has been updated to include the dates he will be playing for Cream in Ibiza for 2009. He will be playing 8 dates in 2009 between the 2nd July and the 24th September. The 24th of September matches the date on th Cream website given for the closing party, However the 2nd of July is listed on PVD’s gig calendar as the opening party for cream but on the cream website the opening party is listed as being on the 18th June which i hope it is!
Cream will be officially announcing the lineup in April. To read more about Cream in Ibiza check out my previous post Cream @ Amnesia 2009 which is the post that will be updated with the lineup once it is revealed.
