With over 40 years of history, Pacha is the oldest club in the white isle, known for its glamorous crowd; the twin cherries represent a lifestyle more than a place to attend a party. Every moment at Pacha Ibiza is breathtaking, from the moment you roll up to see the palm trees filled with light and the huge display for each night of the week. Arriving into Pacha is like being at a red carpet event. You are not left to wait for long and are welcomed by the friendly security. You then make your way into the main entrance where you see the huge wallpaper backdrop where you can have your picture taken. It really makes you feel like a VIP. Already it’s not hard to see why Pacha Ibiza has won so many global club awards, this has to be one of the best clubs in the world.

Steve Aoki is a name that any serious Ibiza party-goer has heard. Every Wednesday, Aoki brings his Playhouse to the world famous Pacha. It’s a residency that captured the attention of the clubbing community when it was announced long before the summer kicked off, and one that has packed Pacha ever since it opened! Expect an amazing show that’s sure to make you go ladi dadi. He’s always up to some kind of mischief with champagne showers, inflatable dinghies in the crowd and the occasional cake thrown at the audience. Throughout the season there has already been so many amazing supporting acts including Martin Garrix, Benny Bennassi, Deorro, the Chainsmokers and R3hab to name only a few! I went along last Wednesday and it was an amazing line-up with Carnage, Chris Lake, and Deorro all joining Aoki in the world famous Pacha booth. There were also many special guests that came to enjoy the show including Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, Uberjakd, Martin Garrix and DVBBS. It was like a mini Tomorrowland reunion with Martin Garrix even jumping on the decks with Aoki to smash the latest track Tremors that I would easily say was the song of Tomorrowland.

Aoki showed us his sensitive side pulling his sister up on stage and making everyone sing happy birthday to her. I did see a birthday cake but not sure if it was eaten or thrown in someone’s face. His fans also loved it when he got everyone to pose for a selfie for his Instagram. Carnage put on an incredible show, the highlight being when he made everyone sit down and then yell “put your f**king hands up”. He’s an incredible performer, if you haven’t seen him yet make sure you do. The doors at Pacha open at midnight but most people do not start to arrive until 1:30-2:30am. By this time the place is pumping with an amazing vibe. If you are in Ibiza this summer ensure you check out Aoki’s Playhouse at Pacha.
