To celebrate 10 years of his residency at Space in 2011, Carl Cox played a 10-hour non-stop set in the Discoteca. Last year, to commemorate 12 years, the night ran for 12 dates. This year, however, for no particular reason — other than to beat all that's come before — he's playing a 10-hour set to open the season AND the night is running not for 13 nights to celebrate the number of years Revolution has now run — that'd be far too easy — he's added not one, but two additional nights to take the party toll to 14!
Two wicked parties are better than one. Especially in Ibiza. Kehakuma has already secured its place in Space Ibiza's hall of fame, dropping only the finest house and techno every Friday on the island since 2009. Elrow, on the other hand, has been enjoying a rapid rise to prominence since it started in the second room of Privilege in 2012.
Now that Miami is out of the way, all eyes are on the Ibiza season. The results in this year’s Top 100 Clubs poll, powered by Miller Genuine Draft have shown us that Ibiza is back in prime position as the world’s ultimate clubbing destination.
One of the key factors behind this resurgence - besides the global popularity of dance music - is the fact that Ibiza has developed a willingness for change and evolution.
Space Ibiza – three time winner of the Top 100 Clubs poll is now very much a global brand – with outposts everywhere from Egypt, to New York, Brazil and Dubai – in addition to their Balearic home.
The latest outpost is the Russian capital of Moscow. Space Moscow opens to the pubic on December 14th, where they will present their new resident Danny Marquez alongside massive headliner Tiesto.
And so the smiles begin, as soon as we touchdown and step out onto that notorious Balearic soil (well concrete actually, because no-one really steps out onto soil these days), and it feels like home. Hello motherland. We’re embarking on the annual end of season pleasure trip to our favourite hedonistic destination to celebrate life, standard. And we’re safe in the knowledge that the soundtrack will be vast, inspiring and provide us with fuel for the months ahead.
Over the last few years, Ibiza’s legendary Space club has evolved from a world-renowned nightspot on a tiny Balearic island into a globally recognised brand — with offshoots across the globe. One of the most exciting new additions to the family is in Egypt, where Space Sharm resides in the tourist resort of Sharm el Sheik. We were in the Egyptian resort — especially popular with Russians and Brits — for a double-header featuring a Top 100 Clubs Party on the Friday (they shot up 28 places to No.
