Friday night in Amnesia has seen Music On deliver numerous unforgettable gatherings this summer. Marco Carola has been ever present, joined by a selection of the most exciting performers on the scene across the summer, including Jamie Jones, Paco Osuna, Claude Von Stroke, Felix Da Housecat, Matthias Tanzmann, Derrick May, Stacey Pullen and Apollonia, to name just a few. The fiercely loyal following that fills the clubbing arena every Friday has been treated to some amazing parties this summer but the level of anticipation for Friday’s edition of the party was through the roof as Carl Cox joined the fun.

It wasn’t just about Carl Cox and Marco Carola in the terrace on Friday September 22, however, the line-up also featured Sam Paganini, Joey Daniel and Anna Tur in the Club room, as both rooms danced to the very best cutting-edge beats. The Friday night party boasts an international following, although it’s fair to say it is a huge favourite of Spanish and Italian clubbers, giving it an electric atmosphere as they are known for getting involved and showing their appreciation for the artists. Sam Paganini, Joey Daniel and Anna Tur had played earlier in the evening for the Music On radio show from Blue Marlin Ibiza marina closing, so were already warmed up and set for Club room duties. The prospect of Marco Carola and Carl Cox taking over the terrace for the night had the expectation levels soaring as an excited crowd waited in the car park before entering the venue.

The duo has played together on many occasions previously, both in Space Ibiza for Music Is Revolution and Amnesia for Music On. It always results in musical mayhem and Friday was no different. Two titans of techno going head to head throughout the night, even a little back to back action as the packed Terrace was in an uproar from start to finish. There are very few venues on the planet that can accommodate talent of this magnitude, not to mention the thousands that have turned out to witness the collaboration. We can’t be sure, but we may have witnessed a broad grin on the face of the normally very serious looking Marco Carola ad the duo put the room through its paces. It had the feel of one of those huge football derby’s as two of the very best at their craft come together.
