Ushuaïa Turns Thursday Blue

When news broke that Armin Van Buuren would only be doing a limited number of Ibiza shows in Ushuaia this summer having previously bossed the open air venue almost every Thursday of the last two seasons, fans may have been understandably concerned as to what could fill that void. In typical Ushuaia fashion, the Thursday mantle has been taken up by some of the most exciting international DJs and the introduction of a new concept or two, meaning the beachfront space will continue to be one of the most popular Thursday destinations on the clubbing capital in 2016.

The brand new Thursday concept – BLUE – will open on June 30 and run until September 1 with Oliver Heldens and Robin Schulz fronting what is a hugely talented line up, most of which has enjoyed massive global commercial crossover success in recent years. Both residents have amassed a large global following and are more than capable of overseeing Thursday night in Playa d’en Bossa at one of the most famous al fresco parties on the planet but they can also count on support from a variety of famous talent that includes Lost Frequencies, Thomas Jack, Felix Jaehn, Feder, Klingande, Michael Calfan, Sam Feldt, Sigala, Jonas Blue, Junior J, Alex Adair, Bakermat, Deepend and Kimotion, to name only a few! It promises to be another masterstroke from the Ushuaia team that has been successful in its creativity in previous summers.


Thursday in Ushuaia has been grabbing a few headlines in recent weeks with a series of announcements of high profile short term residencies for the likes of Steve Aoki, who brings Neon Future to the beach on September 8 and 15. Popular producer/ DJ Kygo has three opportunities to put his mark on proceedings with shows on July 14, July 28 and August 25. Previous resident and king of all things trance, Armin van Buuren will be dropping in twice as part of his ‘Armin Only Embrace’ world tour, returning to Ushuaia on July 29 and Sept 11. Thursday has emerged in recent years as one of the strongest of Ushuaia’s massive weekly roster, where clubbers enjoyed the melodic and euphoric soundtrack provided by A State Of Trance, while that will not be available this summer on a weekly basis, there is plenty of talent to get excited about and optimism is spreading through clubland that the Ushuaia Thursday is in good hands.
