Those initiated into the cult of glamorous White Isle seaside destination Blue Marlin Ibiza know that every summer, on a sizzling hot August weekend, the place to be are the renowned Cala Jondal venue’s annual birthday celebrations. Combining a breath-taking setting with the finest culinary treats, a cutting-edge music programme and the inimitable Blue Marlin Ibiza atmosphere, fashionistas, international jetsetters and the island’s movers and shakers arrived from all over the globe to be part of the three-day extravaganza.

After Shadows, Magdalena and Steve Bug cut the ribbon on Blue Marlin Ibiza’s festivities on Friday, and an irresistible Pop YOU Up takeover led by Tommy Vee and Mauro Ferrucci supported by iconic house vocalist Barbara Tucker continued the birthday celebrations on Saturday, Dennis Ferrer had the honours of delivering the befittingly grand finale on Sunday with his Misfits concept. Currently enjoying his second summer at the White Isle institution, the master mixer from New York has already brought a host of exciting turntable talent to his Sunday residency and for this week, the Objektivity label boss invite his protégé CJ Jeff and Skream to join him in the famous outdoor booth.

When we arrived, the stylish seaside restaurant and bar was already buzzing with pure feel good summer vibes as guests soaked up the last of the rays on the plush daybeds, enjoyed Blue Marlin Ibiza’s mouth-watering modern Mediterranean fare in the breezy al fresco dining area or toasted the occasion with expertly crafted cocktails. Skream had us grooving along to an infectious tech house beat within seconds of arriving, while Blue Marlin Ibiza’s glamorous dancers looked fierce in sexy bondage-inspired costumes and futuristic visors.

Cooling bursts of icy mist were most welcome as we boogied our hearts out while Skream took us on a journey that effortless ranged from a classic ’90s to early ‘00s vibe before throwing it back to the days of upbeat, funky disco. Even the man himself, Dennis Ferrer, couldn’t resist to groove along in the booth as he prepared to take over the decks after sunset. With many eagerly awaiting his arrival, and a steady stream of further stylish guests arriving, Blue Marlin Ibiza was once again the hotspot of the weekend.

Clearly itching to get going, Ferrer went straight into his set with a driving, chunky bassline on a tech edge, teasing us with structured builds that dropped in perfect timing to the icy explosions of the C02 cannons. A genre-defying master, he entertained his fans with clever mixes that included a mash-up of Jennifer Lopez hit Jenny From The Block with the famous house anthem It’s Yours; visibly enjoying himself as he energetically danced along behind the turntables.

The fabulous Blue Marlin Ibiza vixens appeared on the roof, stepping out of a bright stream of lasers in black, tasselled and studded costumes and dramatic feathered headpieces. It was nothing short of goosebump-inducing seeing and hearing all the puzzle pieces coming together for one spectacular example of world-class entertainment and hospitality, and we are looking forward to many happy returns.
