If the inaugural season at Hï Ibiza passed by unnoticed then chances are you have a predisposition for burying your head in the sand or a shockingly bad memory. The latest venture from The Night League — a company that also lays claim to running Ushuaïa Ibiza — is as large in scale as it is big on experience and massive on production. The result making for one enormous night out, guaranteed to leave lasting memories, albeit potentially pretty hazy ones considering this is the world’s foremost party island.

Back for another year in DJ Mag’s Top 100 Clubs poll in the wake of its equally huge second season in 2018, it’s not hard to understand why this spot has already established itself as a perennial favourite. Our own report from Eric Prydz’s audio and visual spectacular in July proved just how impressive the place is, blowing us away on all levels. And this is an experience it delivers to punters every night throughout the summer — hence the incredible reputation it currently has.

When you look at the spec it’s not hard to understand why the club has made such an impact since arriving on the White Island. The Theatre, or main room, is a huge space inspired by an Italian amphitheatre, which can be fully customised to each night. No two residencies ever look the same, with kinetic lighting rigs and LED screens helping dazzle and disorientate dancers in equal measure. The Club, meanwhile, keeps things more intimate and underground via its low ceiling and even lower lighting, while the ‘secret’ third space, known to some as The Wild Corner, takes the idea of a bathroom party to a whole new level.

The last 12 months saw a number of new residencies help keep the music policy fresh, as the venue welcomed Tale of Us’ renowned Afterlife session and Cream Ibiza to the fold, adding to a diary of regular draws that already included Glitterbox, Black Coffee and Armin van Buuren, to name but a few. Meanwhile, the likes of Above & Beyond, Apollonia, Carl Craig, Chris Liebing, Helena Hauff, Jon Hopkins, Nina Kraviz, Solomun, Tijana T and Todd Terry got their names down on a list of incredibly high-profile guests drafted in for standout sets.

An impressive bill to say the least, all of who got to take full advantage of the state of the art sound which comes as standard in every corner of the address. Hï’s plans for 2019 have just been made public and it’s safe to say there will be plenty more to talk about. A 24-hour opening party has been confirmed, taking over both Hï and sister site Ushuaïa with an enormous techno-leaning line-up, while the likes of David Guetta’s F*** Me I’m Famous, Armin and Glitterbox are confirmed for weekly spots. Onwards and upwards, as they say, this third season looks set to be the biggest and busiest yet, which is saying something considering what’s come before.
