As one of the White Isle’s longest-standing nightlife institutions, you’d be hard pressed to find an Ibiza clubber who wouldn’t recognise Pacha’s famous cherry logo. Traditionally associated with more commercial sounds than that of its rivals (think fellow super-clubs like Amnesia or DC-10), it’s still bringing partygoers in in their droves with last month's cover star Steve Aoki’s club-night, titled Aoki’s Playhouse, a popular recent addition. Aoki has welcomed guests like Nervo, Chuckie, R3hab, Boys Noize and Benny Benassi to Pacha's booth over the seasons, alongside established nights Pure Pacha, My House and legendary Ibiza party brand, F**K Me I’m Famous.
Conceived by longtime Ibiza resident David Guetta (and his now ex-wife Cathy) back in the ‘90s, Guetta has played to a packed main room week in week out for close to two decades. “Pacha Ibiza is my favourite club in the world,” says Guetta. “It's at the same time sexy and musically credible. It just feels like home.”
German DJ Solomun’s Solomun + 1 residency will also be back for another in 2016, following sell-out runs thanks to the much-loved DIYnamic boss’ new underground bookings for the venue. Sven Vath, Âme, DJ Tennis, DJ Koze, Michael Mayer, Ida Engberg, Pachanga Boys and many more have joined Solomun in the booth, whilst Solomun has taken the reigns solo for the Solomon + 1 closing each year.
Clocking in in the top five (once again) in our Top 100 Clubs poll, Pacha has long held a place in clubbers hearts and will remain there for some time to come.
