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!

No Tiesto Residency in 2013

In a recent keynote speech in Australia, Tiesto revealed that he probably wont be taking up a full-time residency in Ibiza for 2013, instead probably only doing a few one-off gigs through the summer.

“Next year I’m not sure if I can do it, because it takes a lot out of me to play there from the end of May till the end of September”

Tiesto is seen by a lot of people as one of the biggest Dj’s in the world. For my personal and ever-changing taste, Tiesto was amazing in times gone by but he hasn’t done it for me for a long time now. Hi had his own night in Privilege for a while and the place looked busy. Last year, which was a strange setup for me, he held a residency in Pacha. Love him or not, he has spent the last 10 seasons in Ibiza playing week in week out.

Will you miss Tiesto if he doesn’t play every week in 2013? My only concern, is where will all the Tiesto fans go!

check out his full keynote speech below, or check the link for Inthemix.com.au’s take on the situation.

Tiesto @ Pacha 2012

And just like buses, they come two at a time! Tiesto has announced through his twitter that he will be taking up a residency in Pacha for 2012, rumours have been flying of this announcement but at almost exactly the same time Armin announced his news and new venue, Tiesto thought he would share the limelight!

His tweet states he is opening on the 28th May which is nice and early for any fans also wanting to catch the opening weekend of action. Its definitely not a venue i would have expected for Tiesto, but Pacha has become a club that just wants to fill the club regardless of the music the dj’s will play. With the rumored departure of the Swedish House Mafia, they need to fill that void somehow.

Tiesto @ Privilege 2010

Its seems Tiesto will be back every Monday in 2010 starting from June 7th.

9 years ago Tiesto was the warm up boy for Mauro Picotto who was the headliner at GodsKitchen in Amnesia, One of the best nights I’ve had in Ibiza.

Fast forward a few years and Tiesto was part of the strongest trance lineup on the island, Tiesto and PVD made Cream a very special night to go to. To have the opportunity to see these two guys in the same night behind the same Dj booth came very few and far between.

Tiesto @ Privilege 2009

Its seems that Tiesto will be gracing Privilege again in 2009 starting in June and running through till September. Last year Tiesto rolled into town with his ‘In Concert’ production and destroyed the place by all accounts. This year it seems he has seen how many people he can pack in so he is pack for more and this time it seems that it is for the whole season!

I have read this news over at Ibiza Spotlight and they have reported that the closing party will be on September 21st. The opening party does not yet have a concrete opening date. I have been over and checked out the Privilege website and they have their next event on a Monday down as 08-06-2009 but the article under the headline talks about Tiesto in 2008 so im not to sure when it will be opening.
