Bob Sinclar and Pure Pacha Bring The Pre-Party To Tantra Ibiza

Posted on September 4, 2017

Located on the bustling strip of Playa d’En Bossa is Tantra Ibiza, a vibrant pre-party venue that regularly plays host to some of Ibiza’s much loved DJs. Every second Saturday, French maestro Bob Sinclar is in house, delivering his trademark vibey set to clubbers in Playa d’en Bossa, getting them ready for the party in Pacha later that night. Every other week he can be found on the Sunset Strip in Cafe Mambo. In his absence the Paris By Night pre-party continues on a weekly basis.For those that can’t be in Tantra Ibiza for the set, it is broadcast live on White FM as well as live on the Tantra Ibiza and White Ibiza FM Facebook pages. We decided to drop in and check it out for ourselves.

Pure Pacha Paris By Night is the residency that storms Pacha every Saturday night, and as any Ibiza lover worth their salt will know, it’s one of the most raucous, glamorous and surprising nights on the island. Judging by their glamorous get up, a lot of Saturday night’s Tantra Ibiza attendees would later move onto Pacha – but for now it was all about having a few drinks, getting in the mood and enjoying the pre-party. Drawn by the vibrant, Latin inspired music and the lively crowd, people were visibly slowing down in the street to have a look as they walked past, and inside the venue itself was packed.

Inside, Tantra Ibiza was dimly lit with a thumping bass, obviously getting people ready for the night ahead. Big groups gathered around high tables, drinking and chatting and laughing – and although it was a little early to dance, everyone was kind of bopping and moving around a little. I positioned myself to the right of the stage near the VIP entrance, ready for the man of the hour. Out of nowhere, about 10 to 15 amazing drag queens appeared next to my shoulder and started to file onto the stage. Icons of the Pure Pacha brand, the dancers were all clad in phenomenal glitter, sequins, whimsical makeup and enormous headpieces, and they were all about 7ft tall! Some were more androgynous whilst others were in full female illusions, but they were all fabulous, and as they took to the stage, Bob Sinclar followed and took pride of place in the centre. When his first beat dropped, the dancers around him all started dancing and vogueing.

Fans clamoured around the stage to get a better look at a show that’s usually reserved for the superclubs, all taking photos and videos with their phones. The set was jazzy and uptempo, with a signature flair. With all the production stripped back and in a much more intimate setting, it was such an amazing opportunity to see a fun, iconic set up close and personal. Thank you, Tantra and Bob Sinclair, for getting our night off to a brilliant start!
