Ibiza 2017 sees Cocoon reach that special age 18 years. A time when the world is your oyster, when all things are possible and when you firmly believe that you will last forever! For lovers of the Monday night musical celebration, you might be shocked to hear that Monday was not always a fashionable night to party in Ibiza, although for almost two decades, Sven Väth and the Cocoon community has done everything to change that perception. And it gets set to celebrate its coming of age, Cocoon has revealed the full season line-up, giving fans all over the world the green light to plan their annual pilgrimage to the clubbing capital.

Having lengthened the season to six months in 2016, with great success, the good news is that Cocoon fans can look forward to another half year stretch of parties in Amnesia every Monday. Kicking off on May 29, Monday will once again become one of the biggest nights of the week on the island as the Cocoon community descends from all over the world. One of the foundation stones of the success of this party is the sense of belonging that every member feels, whether they have been loyally following for each of the 18 years or are making their debut on the Cocoon floor. Everyone is made to feel a part of the extended family, one of the most inclusive on the clubbing planet!


There are countless reasons why Cocoon is a favourite for clubbers everywhere, one of them is undoubtedly the leadership of papa Sven, and the good news is that he will play 14 shows this summer spanning both monumental rooms. No matter which floor he is overseeing, the club or the terrace, his presence, his infectious smile and his magical musical journeys have mesmerised capacity crowds for as long as we can remember. Other notable mentions – although, if truth be told, everyone that plays at Cocoon is worthy of recognition – include Ricardo Villalobos and Richie Hawtin, two electronic music titans that will play a combined total of 11 exclusive-to-Cocoon shows, Ricardo playing 6 and Richie 5.


Regulars to the Monday night party, which includes tourists, island clubbers, workers and other DJs, all have their favourites and Adam Beyer and Nina Kraviz have jumped a level or two in recent years on the back of some inspirational performances in front of the passionate crowd. Drumcode boss Adam Beyer will return no fewer than seven times this summer and Nina Kraviz will be displaying her nifty footwork behind the booth five times. One of the constants of recent years has been Ilario Alicante, the talented Cocoon resident who has started grabbing headlines all over the club world and Ibiza 2017 season sees him featuring in seven shows. Sven and Solomun maintain their annual swap deal and there are exciting additions to the summer line-up in the shape of Luciano, POPOF and Adriatique. It’s a fitting celebration of the global talent that is consistently pushing the barriers of electronic music and with Dub Video Connection, the wizards behind the video and light installations in recent years, also returning, it promises to be the biggest summer yet! And for those that need more than one Cocoon [party per week, look out for news of the Tipic Formentera line up, kicking off on June 15. Check out the full line up below and choose the week that suits you best. See you on the dancefloor.
