Carl Cox reveals plan to build a new Space Ibiza

“It's going to happen - there's no doubt about that”...

Carl Cox has revealed that the team behind Space Ibiza are looking to rebuild a new club on the White Isle under the same name.

The British icon, and long-running Space Ibiza resident, revealed the news in a new interview when asked about whether he'd found a new home to play on the island.

“Space was definitely the place for me,” he told Be-At TV. “We have the idea of bringing Space back next year for maybe an opening and closing, but apart from that we are actually looking for a new area to build a new Space somewhere on the island.

“Yes, it's going to happen - there's no doubt about that! I'm going to bring it back in the near or the distant future. I mean, I’ve lost my home and I need to build a new one.

“Space was built as an independent club in Playa d'en Bossa. Playa d'en Bossa only became Playa d'en Bossa because of Space. The new Space doesn't actually have to be on Playa d'en Bossa. Obviously we need some place where it's a little bit quiet. There is no way I'm going to build a Space nightclub next to Ushuaia or anything.

“We will go to a completely new place with a new concept. But the idea is to have the same people who made Space and have people who want to support me in my quest to create a new Space back on the island.”

Space Ibiza closed its doors for the last time in 2016, before it went on to take the no. 1 spot in our DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs poll in 2017.
