Flower Power VIP Unites Ibiza

Posted on August 16, 2018

Words: Nina Saei

Stop the pounding bass! The hectic beats! The rampant fist-pumping! Love is here to save the day and everything is coming flower-coated. Monday nights on the White Isle are synonymous with many things, but one timeless celebration that, for over 40 years, has been uniting the dancefloor in euphoric bliss still stands – Flower Power. Recreating the magic of the heydays, those who want to forget it all and jump into a time capsule of peace, unity and singalong anthems from the 60s, 70s and 80s need look no further. This week saw the famous party celebrate a special VIP edition, with many illustrious names appearing on the guestlist. We donned our flowery shorts, feather headbands and platform boots to get our groove on amidst the island’s movers and shakers.

The widely popular night has been enjoying unending success with its unique programme of performances, entertainment and surprises. Led by Flower Power VIP creator Carlos Martorell, ‘free spirits’ from all corners of Ibiza descended onto the red carpet for the photo call – of course in their best, retro-inspired ‘haute hippy’ looks. Upon our arrival, we were hit with an immensely thick crowd gathered underneath the jumbo psychedelic display of hand-crafted peace signs and flowers; evidently aching for this love revival. Incense filled our senses as we passed numerous hippy market stalls supplying funky accessories for those who may have forgotten their circular sunglasses and headbands.

Inside, Pacha Ibiza was an explosion of colour, from every inch of the walls hung plaques declaring compassionate action such as “free hugs” and “love is the answer”, the ceiling above the dancefloor covered in bright ribbon and large murals of everything ‘60s. Used to having to push and attack our way to the floor, the sounds of Bob Marley coming from resident DJ Sergio Mussa had everybody in a joyous mood, twirling and swinging with plenty of space for joining in. The set was filled with oldies galore from the Sex Pistols to Eric Clapton and The Beatles, the friendly sounds of jazzy classics inviting everyone to shimmy, clap and sing along while throwing their best air guitars.

Periodically a vibrant male host would jump on the mic and announce a momentous show to commence. The show was filled with hair-raising power singers, choreographed dancing and entertainers dressed up as cultural icons such as John Lennon and Yoko Ono being carried through the dancefloor; sending their salutations and throwing out beaded necklaces to the clamouring crowd. Away from the light-hearted, frivolous mood of the main room, second party space Strangers In The Night supplied a fervent landing pad for those after some more up-tempo and driving beats. ‘The Secret Party’ led by Sebastian Gamboa and friends was equally as bustling and dishing out passionate Latin House and infectious rhythms that had everyone in samba mode. With dance music legends Erick Morillo and Louie Vega set to appear in coming weeks, this feel-good fiesta is not over yet! For a night unlike anywhere on the island, the hippy revival awaits your attendance!
