Happy Birthday Sands Ibiza

Posted on June 26, 2013

It’s Tuesday and Sands Playa d’en Bossa is celebrating its birthday party, DJs already announced to play include Eats Everything, Skream and Ben Pearce and there is a space on the line up for a very special guest, which has just been announced will be Seth Troxler. This is what makes Ibiza such a special place, while the rest of the world is still coming to terms with the start of another working week, we are headed to the beach in blinding sunshine, to listen to some of the best DJs on the island dropping chunky house beats as we tip our hats to one of our favourite beach bar/ club restaurants on its latest anniversary.

Sands welcomed top chef Tim Payne to its kitchen this summer and the table bookings have been going through the roof but, by the time we get down to the beach, the kitchen has closed and the tables have been moved out of the way to create a huge dancefloor. Ben Pearce is currently behind the booth, we had been listening to him all the way down from the village on Sonica, so we are already in the mood for the party. The bar area inside is busy but most of the people are out in the sun, enjoying some rays as they listen to some cool beats. Having already announced the surprise guest as Seth Troxler, it was a surprise when Ryan Crosson also showed up, having missed his early flight, and took over for a bit – only in Ibiza!

Eats Everything and Skream have arrived and along with Seth Troxler, they navigate us through the rest of the day and night, taking turns before going back to back to back as the crowd inside the Sands terrace starts to grow. Once the sun goes down completely the party really kicks off, everyone huddles inside to get involved, the chill in the air outside is not enough to worry but certainly enough for those in their beachwear to want to get into the heart of the party. The beats get chunkier and the atmosphere begins to build under the Sands roof, some of the hottest talent on the planet is collaborating behind the DJ booth to create one of those moments that the ‘experienced’ Ibiza bods like to remind us of so often.

Sands is well versed in these day into night parties, having hosted Carl Cox and his birthday and funk and soul party on several occasions in recent years, now that the superstar DJ has become part of the ownership of the popular beach bar, there are plenty of opportunities to get your groove on overlooking Playa d’en Bossa during this summer. Anticipation still builds as to when he will make his first appearance, with many betting he was the surprise guest for this shindig. That honour, however, went to Seth Troxler, who is tearing the floor up as he rifles through his vinyl, deciding in which direction to take the now capacity crowd. The noise inside the beach venue is amazing; the crowd has become vocal in its support for its heroes behind the decks, who take turns to drop monster nuggets on the adoring masses, who reply by throwing their hands in the air and screaming their approval. It’s a fitting birthday party for one of the best beach venues on the island and with a few more massive parties planned for the summer, I have a feeling we will be seeing much more of Sands Beach Bar before we get to October!
