Situated in the port of Limassol in southern Cyprus, Guaba Beach Club opened in 2006 “to change the narrow-minded people of the island during that period,” Yiannis from Guaba tells DJ Mag. They were forced to move to a new location in 2009 by the authorities, and are now established as one of the principal beach venues in the world.
The Guaba team used to organise festivals and beach parties around the island before Guaba, and say that they may repeat the exercise of staging a festival again like they did in 2010.
But for now they're concentrating on throwing Guaba events: they've recently built a new DJ booth, a new VIP balcony, upgraded the soundsystem and added new décor, and are also launching the Guaba Deep House daytime beach parties this summer — on the beach near Guaba itself.
Chuckie, Fedde Le Grand, Martin Garrix, Nervo, Gareth Emery and Showtek are just a few big acts to have rocked Guaba recently.
