On an island dominated by mechanistic techno and minimalist rhythms, Pacha continues to fly the flag for full-flavoured house music and good-time grooves - past, present and future.
The spiritual Balearic home of US godfathers like Frankie Knuckles, David Morales and Masters At Work, Pacha has played host to Erick Morillo's Subliminal night for over a decade now yet the Pacha line-up as a whole remains a fresh as the two cherries that adorn their iconic branding.
Giving their line-up a subtle seasonal remix year on year, the Ibiza Town venue remains focused on uncovering tomorrow's house torchbearers with last year's residencies for Fedde Le Grand (Flamingo Nights) and the unstoppable Swedish House Mafia (Dark Forest) bringing the house down.
And lest we forget about the carnival circus that is David Guetta's F*** Me I'm Famous phenomenon, where DJs like Laidback Luke and 2Many DJs have joined the pop savvy French house God at what has become one of the most decadently debauched and routinely rammed success stories on the island.
But really makes Pacha Ibiza is the setting itself. From the main room's white-washed walls and stylishly draped, catwalk-perfect podium dancers to the moonlit roof terrace, Pacha manages to be both overwhelmingly decadent and instantly welcoming at once which means clubbers of all stripes are happy to dress up to get down here.
