Essential Ibiza Magazine 011

Posted on September 27, 2016

Words: Iain Thomson

In the last Essential Ibiza magazine of the summer, we turn our attention to the plight of iconic London club Fabric, and the Save Fabric campaign. After the tragic deaths of two young clubbers, Islington Council revoked the license of the creative hub, depriving many of their livelihood, impacting severely the businesses in the surrounding area and taking away one of the world’s most influential musical platforms. We caught up with long time resident Terry Francis for our cover interview.

Essential Ibiza TV has been a huge success this summer, capturing exciting snapshots of island life during the season, from the emergence of new brands on the island to the fantastic parties that grab all the headlines, and everything in between. In this issue, we talk to some of the international DJs about the last Carl Cox Music Is revolution residency in Space and go behind the scene at of one of the last Tuesday night parties. We also get a glimpse at new Ibiza party Woomoon, which united the tribes in the open-air of Cova Santa this summer. Check out the videos and soak in the Ibiza vibe that has made the Balearic island such a popular destination. Ibiza based brand Podenco Eivissa talks us through the latest beach look, making sure you all look your best at those daytime parties.

In the booth this month sees three influential but very different producer/ DJs talk to us, from Poker Flat boss Steve Bug, long time visitor to Ibiza, Polish duo Catz ‘N Dogz and relative newbie Archie Hamilton. We have our monthly catch up with respected printed publication Ibiza Style as they deliver their last magazine for the 2016 season and DressedIn Ibiza returns for a final fashion blog. Elsewhere, Fashion Editor Amanda O’Riordan checks out new Glasgow based label Forty Clothing, making its Ibiza debut this summer and already been seen in the Space Ibiza DJ booth courtesy of Carl Cox. Amanda also shines a light on Free Love Ibiza and Intec religion and catches up with Ibiza face Rachel Montague, the star of numerous island based photo shoots and podium occupier at some of the finest parties.

Ibiza 2016 has been one of the craziest summer seasons to date, starting earlier than ever and stretching out longer into October then previously. It doesn’t seem like 5 minutes ago the island was discussing how busy everywhere was in mid-May! There have been countless crazy moments, highlights and things that will stay with us throughout the winter, as everyone involved in making Ibiza tick finally gets a chance to breathe out and relax. We look at some of the things that have caught the eye in the final island feature of the year and get set to enjoy the change of pace as the end of the season quickly approaches. We would like to thanks everyone that contributed to the magazine this summer and hope to see you all back again in 2017…
