Cocoon turning 20 was never going to be an occasion that the techno titan let pass without incident. If announcing that it would be taking over Ushuaïa Ibiza on Saturday May 25 captured the imagination then revealing the line-up has sent the club world into a frenzy. Underworld will perform live and there’s performances in the DJ booth from Sven Väth, Ilario Alicante, Matthias Tanzmann and Danah Ruh b2b André Galluzzi.


Sven Väth was an early champion of Underworld, paying the now famous ‘Born Slippy’ at his Omen Frankfurt residency long before Trainspotting elevated the track to global status and has supported the UK based duo ever since. In fact, they were invited to play at the tenth anniversary so there is a delicious symmetry about them taking to the Ushuaïa Ibiza stage for the anniversary gathering on May 25. The band has an unforgettable, festival sound that is the perfect cherry on top of an already very exciting birthday cake.


It seems almost unthinkable to the legion of Cocoon followers that fills every Ibiza party nowadays that, in 1999, when the party first burst on to the Ibiza scene, musically there really wasn’t anything like it. Genuine trailblazers, Cocoon and Sven have opened the island ears to the sound that we know and love today. It’s fitting that part of the anniversary celebrations should be outdoors, one of the foundations of the Balearic island becoming the clubbing capital was its early outdoor gatherings. In Ushuaïa Ibiza, Cocoon has a state of the art space in which to welcome clubbers from all over the world for what promises to be a spectacular start to a summer of exciting collaborations.


Cocoon deserves every accolade that has come its way during its two decade tenure. Twenty years of delivering the finest parties around the world, not to mention a label that has offered a vehicle for some of the most exciting and innovative productions, as well as consistently discovering and nurturing new talent is a remarkable achievement and one that the whole team should be proud of. Apart from an acute understanding of what it takes to make people dance, the Cocoon team has a passion for what it does, a desire to do things properly and a drive to maintain that success across two decades. The contribution it has made to the evolution of the global scene cannot be captured in words. Instead, head to Ushuaïa Ibiza on Saturday May 25 and bask in the phenomenon that is Cocoon.
