Cocoon Ibiza – The Grand Closing Party

Ibiza & Formentera

Cocoon Ibiza – The Grand Closing Party

The last hurrah, the closing of Cocoon Ibiza is one of the events of every season – it has been for 18 years. This is the night where we all come together on the dance floor. We keep this crisp. We just want to see you there. 6 artists that all bring something different to the table. Music lovers rejoice, we have one last Cocoon

On the terrace :

SVEN VÄTH
We say yet again that this man is a machine, in a sensual pounding relentless way. The breadth and depth of the music he has played us this year is staggering. Tonight for the 18th time Sven will play the final set of Cocoon Ibiza. Extraordinary. And yes, unmissable.

HENRIK SCHWARZ LIVE
A perfect partner for our closing. We will be front and centre for another stunning Henrik live show. He has blown us away every time these last years and this will not be any different. A class act.

DJ KOZE
We have said it before but when Koze is on the same stage as Sven in Amnesia things get so terribly tasty. Infectious music to get you started on the terrace from an infectious personality who is also a magician behind the decks.

In the Club :

ADAM BEYER
Sets this year that have laid golden eggs. Really memorable stuff and this is somehow a bloke who just keeps getting better. Adam has the ability to hook you like a fish and thats it. Finito. Your arms and legs take over. Get caught as he closes the main room for the last time this year.

ILARIO ALICANTE
Unstoppable, irrepressible and as you will find after the first 2 or 3 tracks tonight irresistible. In demand throughout Europe and beyond he signs off a huge summer in Amnesia tonight and the floor will be jumping

DANA RUH
A year to remember for Dana and we had no hesitation in bringing her in to open up the night in the main room. Dana can do it all, tonight she will get you in exactly the right mood for some of the biggest artists of the year

Thank you everyone who has made our 18th season so very special. Outstanding music, incredible crowds and an atmosphere like no other. Now please join us for the last time in Amnesia in 2017. No one says adios like Cocoon

Cocoon Ibiza – date 18

Heavens preserve us. We have a total monster coming your way. Everything has had a ring a ding ding these precious previous weeks. A fierce fiesta last Monday had Sven and Ilario rejoicing on the terrace until the sun came up and Nina Kraviz pummelling the main room after Dana Ruh had teased and twirled her way through the early hours. The taste left in our mouths was once again so sweet and dense we will try and bottle it. Hanging out with you lot on a Monday as the season wends its way to the close – hard to put into words.

Here we go with what might well be a classic. The penultimate gig, the last from our two exclusive heroes :

On the terrace :

RICARDO VILLALOBOS
It was Zip 2 weeks ago. Ricardo followed the Perlon prince with a precocious set that flew around the terrace and sealed a really memorable night of music. 3 vital artists seamlessly delivered an experience we will never forget. Tonight two more of his closest are here for another voyage. We truly do not think you can get this anywhere else. This crowd . This setting.

RARESH
The utterly wonderful Raresh is second up. His first visit this year and we have been dribbling about this and having our sleep patterns disrupted. Whenever Ricardo and Raresh are on the same stage just somehow be there. They are going to move you .

SONJA MOONEAR
The fourth and final Cocoon of the year from a sonic Swiss siren who just happens to be the most perfect person to invite you into the night. 2 outstanding joyous sets on the terrace under her belt. Set your alarm

In the Club :

RICHIE HAWTIN
Oh my goodness. That gig on the terrace at the beginning of September was something else entirely. It was the brilliant Adam Beyer and then that breathtaking Hawtin set. It really was – well, you just had to be there. Tonight is not only the last of the Richie exclusive Ibiza shows for Cocoon but it is the first in the main room. We are going to get the full treatment. We are going to be hypnotised

MATADOR LIVE
Well named. We pride ourselves every season on presenting the cream of the Live performers. This year is no exception, some stunning sets, and we climax with the explosive talent that is Matador. Gavin is going to cook your goose, do not miss a second of this.

FABIO FLORIDO
Welcome to the big house Fabio. You already made some waves over in Tipic on our Cocoon Thursday’s and we look forward to hearing your naughty tunes again tonight, setting up a classic in the Club.

There have been some very special and different affairs landing every Monday in Amnesia. This one is going to pop your cork. There is something in the air.

Cocoon Ibiza – date 17

Last week was Sven all night long in the main room with some help from the masked marauder Redshape. It had been coming, it was explosive with Sven last Monday night. One of our loudest and a set of the season in the Club. Ricardo had two of his best chums with him on the terrace. Zip and Dorian Paic brought their immense knowledge and vinyl verve in support. It was an evening to be treasured yet again and now we head into the final furlong

with the a crowd of music lovers by our side – the 18th September features :

On the terrace :

SVEN VÄTH
The extraordinary year of Sven, the guv’nor bounds into September like a gazelle. He is a force of nature and there is nothing more to be said. Just enjoy whatever is thrown your way tonight, we are all scratching our heads yet moving our shoes.

ILARIO ALICANTE
Ilario is chasing Sven on the air mile ticker. The lad has been everywhere but tonight he is back here for a rare terrace appearance following his main room shows this year. Those of you that have seen his Tipic shows for Cocoon will be all over this one. A great Ilariyeario.

In the Club :

NINA KRAVIZ
The ascending star that is Nina descends again on the main room of Amnesia and once again we have no idea what to expect. Her shows have been so different and so brilliantly provocative. An important artist shuts the room tonight and this is her last show of the year with us. Miss it not.

DANA RUH
Dana is the sublime middle of this main room night. A hidden treasure starting to get the traction and attention her daring approach to music deserves. Dana is the gravy as everyone and his dog who has seen her recently will testify. We will be somewhere near you.

tINI
tINI knows how to get you organised as she showed with such gusto at the end of August, again in the Club. tINI always finds the tone and then plays with it and you. Effortlessly bright, always with a twist. Arrive early for the twists.

Always arrive early for Cocoon Ibiza. There are no fillers, only first quality fish in our tanks.

Cocoon Formentera – Closing Party

Ibiza & Formentera

Cocoon Formentera – Closing Party

Ilario signed off his annual series of Formentera fry ups with so much gusto that it almost got out of hand. No one would leave. Including Ilario – and the wonderful Dana Ruh was not going anywhere either even though her job was done as beautifully as ever. Not sure what this chemistry is but we will all be back for more in 2018 because it just works.

Spooky to mention 2018 but it must be put on the table. Welcome to the final hurrah. This really is the last of the Thursdays that revitalise all of those areas that need a bit of tender loving care when the going gets tough. The last one is different. Forget all the nurturing and let your hair all the way down:

SVEN VÄTH
Last year it was an accident that Sven closed the season – a rescheduled show that was sillily brilliant. This time it is all planned and if ever there was a time for you to make a plan it is now. All night long in Amnesia on Monday turns in to one of those rare occasions where you can see the guv’nor and his fingernails plucking away at those heavy bags. The last night of the season – surprises aplenty.

MAURIZIO SCHMITZ
The too cool for school Maurizio has previous here, both with and without Sven. One show already in 2017 and it is no surprise that he was selected to offer up some more thoughts for your stuttering toes tonight. He has a way of setting a mood as you will see. This is the night to arrive when the cock crows

It is the 14th and we go out all guns blazing.
Sven Vath is in Tipic with you tonight!

Cocoon Ibiza – date 16

The first September night of Cocoon 18 and we had one of the contenders for party of the year without a doubt. In a seething packed Amnesia it was difficult to know where to look or where to listen. On the terrace Hito started and Adam Beyer then delivered a simply marvellous experience to complement a Richie Hawtin masterclass. Over the way Nastia gave way to a brilliantly ferocious Slam and Ben Klock was just on fire. On the 4th September one of those Cocoon nights happened. Stunning.

It has been a series of unforgettable Mondays. Now look at this week:

In the Club:
SVEN VÄTH
Yes, an all night long in the club and we know a few of you have been waiting for this for a while. And remember Sven has had 2 weeks away from HQ. Join on the dancefloor from the doors opening for a Sven occasion in the main room of Amnesia. What could be finer?

REDSHAPE LIVE
Oh, there is a serious interlude in the middle. You may have come across this masked invader by now, you certainly need to come across one of his live sets because they have been pulling up trees all over Europe. A classic club night where we simply have no idea quite what will happen. You just gotta be there.
On the terrace:

RICARDO VILLALOBOS
Or here. Ric has perhaps his favourite cohort in the house tonight. The Perlon prince joins, normally they are in adjacent studios in Berlin but tonight one of those wonderful rare occasions where they share the same stage. Every Ricardo this year has thrilled, this tonight is the last but one of his exclusive Ibiza performances.

ZIP
Not one to shout about himself so let us do it for him. Perlon we mentioned, one of the most influential imprints there ever will be. But ask anyone who loves the music we all love, there is a chance at some point they encountered Zip behind the decks. Then they get poetic. He just does things no one else does. Come and witness for yourselves

DORIAN PAIC
He was a delight here with Ricardo mid July, as he always is frankly, and no surprise they join forces again tonight – this time in a Zip sandwich. If for some reason you had been told by a doctor not to dance for a week then tonight you could find a little corner, a place to perch on the terrace at 12 o’clock and close your eyes. Artists at work. 3 very special ones.
Sven in the main room and Ricardo on the terrace with so much more besides. These last parties – remarkable. Sorry to get repetitive.

Cocoon Formentera – date 13

Last week we lost our Mind Against for reasons outside of their control. Planes that did not do what they should have done. Los Suruba stepped in at the last moment and these two feisty fellows put in a flamboyant performance. Delmar and Alvaro are cheeky chaps and we will be seeing them again. Mr J was in position right from the start. Thank you all three for creating such a super night. It was bubbly, very bubbly.Now back to business and we are pretty certain how this night is going to go. It will be bubbly:

ILARIO ALICANTE
Rampaging around Europe and beyond, noshing up the main room of Amnesia on a couple of Mondays makes it clear that Ilario is having a year to remember. Nothing, absolutely nothing, would stop him turning up here though. You know why by now.

DANA RUH
Dana is a very special person and performer. Quietly she keeps doing her thing and this thing she does is the absolute nuts. Class in a glass and please join us for another portion of Dana.

It is lucky 13.
Ilario Alicante and Dana Ruh.

Cocoon Ibiza – date 15

We were lost in space in Amnesia last week. The day and night that matters. A Monday that brought us Ricardo and Luciano b2b for many hours on the terrace, after a moving escapade with Sonja Moonear. So special, particularly for your humble and very blind writer who lost his glasses on a heaving dancefloor and yet still everyone nearby stopped and searched through the dry ice. Ta. Cocoon people and their bouncing warm hearts. Over the way three other performances that sung. tINI started and Rodhad led to Beyer and it was another room to make you swoon from beginning to end. In every corner of the club there was beautiful noise.

It is September, gosh:

On the terrace:

RICHIE HAWTIN
Only one more of the Richie exclusives after this so get your skates on pop pickers and just take a piece of this cake before it is too late. Especially when the supporting cast is this amazing.

ADAM BEYER
His once a year sets here have become part of our delicious annual sonic furniture as you get to experience Mr Beyer in a totally different way. Every one has been a gem and tonight preceding Richie you can expect more surprises from one of the most important artists anywhere.

HITO
Is here to ooze you into another sensational night on the terrace and she is fully equipped for the job. Kimono my house? Maybe, but Hito also has techno vinyl piled high in her bags and this will be an interesting first look for many of us. Do not miss it.

In the Club :

BEN KLOCK
And here is another annual feature. The ludicrously good looking Ben Klock (who annoyingly is also a stunningly good Dj) rolls up for what will no doubt be a butt shuddering last few hours in the main room complete with his moody techno overtones. A main room specialist.

SLAM
The no mercy Scottish scoundrels are back in the park and your humble writer will not miss a second of their brilliantly ruthless offering and will attempt to keep his glasses on

NASTIA
A scintillating set in July and so high time we had some more main room magic from this rising star. You will get a lot of bass and a lot of class from the second the doors open tonight

Another six pack of the highest quality for you to pick your way through.

Ilario was back in the saddle last week with his Tipic technicolour persona in full flow. Everyone just loves him here quite honestly. Ion Pananides b2b with Alex Pott set the tone for yet another Thursday walk on the groovy side. And we looking forward this week to some more sounds that are going to work so perfectly here :

MIND AGAINST
Its Fognini time as Berlin based Federico and Alessandro join us again with their unique brand of sound for the dancefloor. A series of releases on Life and Death and also Hotflush Records set them apart and they continue their march forward. We are big fans.

MR J
And a local hero and all round good bloke Javier turns on the hotplate tonight. He has all the weapons to keep your weary 31st August legs moving and to cement a smile on your face. We will be joining you yet again, completely addicted to Thursdays we are.

Number 12. You are running out of time if you have not made it to our Tipic weekday.

The third show of this August bonanza featured the mighty Dixon sandwiched between a double helping of Sven Vath on the terrace. It was as you might guess rather great out there on the dancefloor. Over the way Ilario played a richly rewarding set after Adriatique and Popof expressed themselves in very different ways. It worked brilliantly. We have a sixpack of such quality for you to clap your ears around this week. It makes us feel all warm and cuddly just to type the names :

On the terrace :

Welcome to one of those splendiferous things that crop up in Ibiza and somehow mean more here than anywhere else. Two brothers they might describe themselves but with so few opportunities to collide these days. This is a proper collision and for a big chunk of this evening you will experience the unfiltered pleasure of 2 modern greats treading the boards together. RICARDO VILLALOBOS & LUCIANO are going back 2 back on the terrace.

SONJA MOONEAR
Of all the people to start such an evening Sonja would be many peoples choice, and possibly their choice. An old friend and a fabulous Dj with the taste of an angel. Do not miss a minute of the show tonight. It is going to be memorable

In the Club:

ADAM BEYER
As if that was not enough here is another modern master closing the show in the main room and he has simply continued on from where he left off last year. One sensational performance follows another and you are just spoilt for choice tonight ladies and gentlemen. Just look at who is supporting Adam.

RODHAD
His first show for us last year left a big mark as the Berlin based techno wizard sucked you deep under his spell before spitting you happily out all over the dancefloor. Distinctive and deadly in the main room and we can’t wait for this next mission

tINI
Little more needs to be said about the wonderful tINI who has such a long relationship with us and Amnesia. Nothing better than the doors opening and climbing into the curly pleasures provided by a very cool cat.

What a night this one is going to be. Where do you go, which room? When?

So let´s see, it was Richie the week before last which was stunning and then we presented Carl Craig smothering an extremely lively Tipic in technicolour sound. Thursdays have no right to be this good. They are playing havoc with our working week! Victor Santana, lest we forget, added a lot to the night and before we can draw breath it is time for the next one.

There is no slowing down because the King of the Hill is back:

ILARIO ALICANTE
In an unbelievably busy schedule Ilario is never going to forego these nights at Tipic. Over these last couple of years they have become such special little events. Crackling music and it is a true Balearic atmosphere every time the lad rolls up here. Every time he does the surging fan club rocks up as well. Guaranteed fun and games once again

ALEX POTT B2B ION PANANIDES
And to make sure you get off on the right foot two talents get connected again to explore some choice house music in their own delectable way. Actually you do not really need a reason to come down early to Tipic on a Thursday – but this is a good one just for your information.

It is number 11. Not bad are they these Thursdays? If you still have not had a visit then choose an Ilario night.

You will not regret it.

The 14th August. 6 artists all so different but because this is Cocoon it made such sense. A jam packed house again suggests we are not the only ones who think we are having a series of parties that will not be forgotten easily. Âme and KiNK playing live had the terrace just where Sven would want it. And it was blow away great all night in the main room. From Einzelkind to Ben UFO to the fearless Nina Kraviz. It was hard to know which way to turn. A high class problem.

Where now for your bouncing heart and itchy feet?

On the terrace:

SVEN VÄTH
And if this set is anything like last weeks closer on the terrace rejoice. It will be different of course, this is Sven with his many cases of vinyl and many moods. You never know what will be served up but it is one of Ibiza’s joys finding out most Mondays oft he season. The untouchable Sven Väth.

DIXON
His star continues to ascend and every Cocoon season has been having some Dixon somewhere along the line. The more the merrier. Tonight seize the chance to make hay with the man right after the doors open. The terrace is going to be swirling very early tonight – it always does whenever Sven and Dixon share the same stage. Enjoy!

In the Club:

ILARIO ALICANTE
Steaming his way through 2017 is the effervescent bundle that is Ilario Alicante. Picking up new fans like a turbo charged Dyson during his jampacked world tour he appears to be unstoppable. He already rules the roost over in Formentera so about time you popped into the main room tonight and see for yourself what all the fuss is about.

POPOF
Talking of popping you simply cannot miss this Parisien purveyor of class on and off the dancefloor. Some extraordinary remixes under his belt for names that matter and out now a new Amnesia mix. On a roll and a half is Alexandre. Join him in the main room tonight for something that will stir fry fierce with fun.

ADRIATIQUE
And to start your night two talented Adrians for the price of one. We have been so impressed with their moody grooves and consider this to be a perfect way to start your night in the Club. Come and join us for another rousing night of entertainment for your feet.

18 and how good it feels this year. The last 4 Mondays have ricocheted around our small island.

It was of course sensational. After all these years the first ever performance on Formentera by Richie Hawtin was for our dainty Thursday night @ Tipic. He came, he saw, he conquered – and had a blast and a half as we all did. It was a less chatty Tipic last week but it was a grinning grinding Tipic and it should never have ended. A night for bouncing hearts. Cesar incidentally set the whole thing up with his usual panache and we had what you might call a banging Balearic experience.

We have not finished with Detroit yet, in Richies still bubbling wake we present:

CARL CRAIG
The last CC here was a highlight of the season and there was never a doubt we would all want another helping. It happens tonight ladies and gentlemen. The wonderful Carl Craig is going to be right in front of your eyes immersing you in the good stuff.

VICTOR SANTANA
What a way to kick off. Dj, producer, label owner and all round fine guy brings some techno vinyl with loads of trimmings. Victor Santana unleashes us tonight and the best advice we could ever give is that you get warm with him. And again this week the team will be joining you. Compulsive Thursday disorder.

It is number 10 in a series of shows that are going to linger long in our memories. Thursdays. Tipic.

Mid season Cocoon and we hope you have been enjoying this frantic ride that is leaving skidmarks across the Island. Cocoon 18 is expressing Ibiza perhaps when it most matters. The party is on a Monday. No better example than last week when the Sven / Richie show came to town again and gave us a glorious terrace that for some brought a tear to the eye because these guys are more relevant than ever. Modern music for Ibiza dancers was also spurting out of the main room courtesy of Adam Beyer. The man is just cool as a cucumber as he drags you in to yet another sublime set. On top of that Ilario dealt his cards and Markus Fix had a massive early crowd to play with. We are beaming with pride in the middle of August. Where now for week 12? The menu is peachy:

On the terrace:

SVEN VÄTH
Storming through another season Sven is back where we want him, closing the night in Amnesia. After last weeks heroics he went on to deliver an after party that glowed and the man seems to be both ageless and to possess a record collection as big as a cruise liner. Enjoy another week with one of the greats.

KiNK LIVE
We cannot say enough about Kink and his live antics. It is something so immediate and this balance between full throttle and an underlying melodic substance grabs you by the sleeves and will not let you go for an hour or more.

ÂME DJ
Kristian, long time friend and one of those performers who has sneaked his way ever more into the limelight. His distinctive approach to a set offers you a very classy way to start your night on the terrace.

In the Club:

NINA KRAVIZ
There cannot be many more potent artists out there right now, Nina flies various flags always without fear and always surprising. That is the beauty – you never quite know what to expect and so prepare yourself for another Kraviz journey that takes no prisoners. Find your spot and surf her frequencies.

BEN UFO
This unexplained phenomena has been marauding up and down peoples spinal columns for many a month now and we are delighted to have this most in demand of Dj’s with us tonight for his only Cocoon Ibiza show this season. Ben UFO in the main room. Boom. Don’t miss him.

EINZELKIND
Man does he know his stuff and he is now popping up all over the place. Our friend Arno is a gem, such a gem that this very Monday the latest mix CD on Cocoon Recordings is released with The Einzelkind side being mixed only from his own productions. Sheer class and please set your alarm for him.

It has been absolutely bonkers in Amnesia these past weeks but Cocoon @ Tipic has been doing its best to keep up. A riotous Ilario week was followed last Thursday by Nastia bringing home the bacon like a champ – with the admirable help of Gulp.

Fun, frolics and great music have abounded and this week please hide the children and fasten your seatbelts. This is going to take off – very early. We are sizzling with excitement as we present for the first ever time on Formentera:

RICHIE HAWTIN
Sensational in Amnesia and already midway through his exclusive to Cocoon shows in our 18th season here comes a monstrous bonus. The gamechanging master himself joins us in these most intimate of surroundings and we will be joining you for sure. This is the mighty Richie Hawtin bringing you what will be a Thursday night to remember.

CESAR VINZENT
And who better to tee it up for you than new favourite Cesar. You won’t need much warming up but Cesar will provide all you need. He plays some gorgeous stuff.

And for the third week running the party that really is a party simply blew up in Amnesia. Cocoon is at your service every week. Last Monday Sven was back in the main room and Ricardo the terrace. Two dancefloors that snorted with glee and are more vital than ever because they shout Ibiza especially when these boys take tot he floor on the same night. Seth Troxler with Craig Richards and some live Christian Burkhardt topped up by Andre Galluzi completed the pretty picture. It is a picture of Ibiza as we know and love it and in fact the whole reason we do this. The foot stays on the gas, have a look at this:

On the terrace:

We aired the other day a conversation Sven and Richie had about their times together and it was fascinating. Two blokes having a chit chat without quite mentioning that between them, and in different ways, they changed the face of dance music. We know that very well and invite you tonight to another special occasion.

SVEN VÄTH
After his absolute stormer in the main room last Monday (it was crackers in there) Sven is back on the terrace for a different sort of seduction. Does anyone do this better? And whats more it is another chance to pow wow with the boss straight after the doors open. For more insights into vinyl versatility arrive very early and find a spot.

RICHIE HAWTIN
The exclusive to Cocoon Richie season continues tonight and we warn you that tonight is going to be sweaty and fierce and full. This is the 3rd of 5 and this time last year we experienced a quite extraordinary gig. Richie is fighting fit and so are we – in fact we have been in training. It cannot be missed

In the Club:

ADAM BEYER
What a show it was with Ida Engberg b2b 2 weeks ago. It quite lived up to the previous years classic but if you missed that the good news is that Adam churns out the absolute sauce on his own. He is having a spectacular year and whether you know this or not you need to be visiting the main room this evening.

ILARIO ALICANTE
Ilario once again blew the socks off the crowd in Formentera at our little sister party and he is owning Tipic right now. Make your way here to hear him on the big speakers. We guarantee you will understand his ever more upward curve. A classy cat.

MARKUS FIX
One of the good guys in every way and he knows his onions. Start your night with a bang and our long time friend Markus. He will escort you into one oft he big nights oft he season

It was a triple header unusually at Tipic last Thursday but apart from that nothing much was different. Everyone sailed around happily in this weekly bubble that is only ever good news. It really is a little treasure this gig and a key reason is Ilario Alicante. At his imperious best and sporting a grin from ear to ear he just absolutely ransacked the place. Just please catch him here one day, you will never regret it. Pisetzki Live was direct and to your points and Maurizio is just a diamond. Another night of undiluted fun from the very start.

This Thursday we present you something a touch different:

NASTIA
On an absolute roll is Nastia. Fresh from yet another festival appearance catch her on a Thursday special before it is too late. She will be back in the main room of Amnesia for us in September but why wait? This is an artist you need to see in the flesh and listen close. Nastia is doing something a bit different and here is a chance to examine all her angles from close range

GULP
And to set it all up a favourite new name of ours – and well named he is. He not only knows the right people he plays sweeping swoony music we think you will swallow whole…… Thursdays with Cocoon

Well dear friends that was ridiculous last Monday was it not? So good that we completely overran as Solomun delighted what was almost a sunlit terrace. Hairs standing up on the back of our necks and these were Ibiza moments. Sven set it all up on the terrace with a gorgeous set and now look out tonight. And there was more. Over the way Scuba did it again in the main room and was followed by yet another sublime combustion of sound that Adam Beyer and Ida Engberg seem to provide routinely. This was a night where once again the circle was rounded. Cocoon provides the complete package. Sheer unadulterated quality from brilliant artists.

And for tonights story another serious expedition is prospect. Not a minute wasted, no fluff and no fillers. We are 18 for a reason

In the club:

SVEN VÄTH
Knowing Sven as we do this is a time to put your best clubbing shoes on and make no plans for the next day or so. 3 weeks opening on the terrace for some fine friends as you have seen (and for himself all night long) means one thing ladies and gentlemen. Tonight in the main room expect some techno, techno from a master. This one is going to be boisterous. This one is going to be loud. Sven Vath. Main room for only the second time this season. Just be there.

And this is ideal. Warming your good shoes one of our favourite exponents of the live set. Christian has been doing this for us a while and in the main room he never fails. Clonking good work.

ANDRE GALLUZZI
A warm welcome back for the far too good looking Andre who has been bringing his own brand of techno back to the park and it is far too good to ignore. We didn’t, so please get yourselves here early tonight and you will not regret it for a moment

On the terrace:

RICARDO VILLALOBOS
A trio of friends who mean an awful lot in this world in such different ways. It is a happy day when we can present them on the same stage together. Ricardo has been just swatting it on the festival circuit but on Ibiza there is only one place to see him take his art ever further. The third exclusive Villalobos show happens tonight.

SETH TROXLER
Oh Seth. We adore your style, your ethos and your spirit. We need you to be as fearless as you are. What a bonus that every time we see you play we learn something new. Especially when you are playing b2b with the one and only.

CRAIG RICHARDS
The legendary Fabric resident, not for the first time, saddles up with Seth. Later this summer Houghton, a brand new UK festival has his fingerprints all over it and smells very special. Seth and Ricardo obviously think so. Another visionary for your pleasure tonight if you arrive in time.

A night that is going to fly. It really is. The 18th season is bringing Ibiza back tot he roots.

Cocoon Formentera – date 7

What fun. What larks. Pure entertainment and superb music form someone who just gets on so well with Tipic. It was Frank Lorber of course who had the place swooning and swaying along with him. Arian did everything right to set the mood right from the get go and once again the night seemed to flash by. Over all to soon. High and dry on beautiful Formentera. It could be worse. This Thursday we present you with a delectable threesome, if you have not yet visited we are going to keep putting temptation in your way:

ILARIO ALICANTE
The Lord of the Manor is back already which guarantees another colourful night of feisty friction on the dancefloor. Ilario nights here have a life and direction all of their own. It is a night to make new friends after treading on their toes

PISETZKI LIVE
This deep invader of your senses is an intriguing way to fill your one-off Tipic sandwich tonight. Playing live and trust us, you have a treat in store.

MAURIZIO SCHMITZ
And yet there is more – which rhymes. Our very own Maurizio loves it so much here that we have persuaded this workaholic into a couple of shows this year at Tipic. Come and join him early and help him enjoy some downtime. He has a saucy way about him you are going to love and a fist full of tunes to match

It is number 7 already. Do not let things drift, come and join us

Cocoon Ibiza – date 9

Absolutely classic Cocoon nights are coming thick and fast now. There was Sven and Richie and then last week it was Ricardo and Nina both delivering startling sets that buffeted you around the dancefloors in a quite nutty atmosphere. Four other robust beauties were also part of a night that was not just about dancing – this was for people who love music. Dorian Paic and Digby, such sophisicated sets on the terrace. Carl Craig and tINI in the main room. They smothered it.

Of course we are biased but from the very first moment last Monday night it was once again clear what is possible with a few choice artists and a couple of dancefloors. Heaven is a word that springs to mind. Nowhere else you would want to be.

To follow that trip through the pearly gates we run this week with 4 acts and what seem to be 2 new annual must be theres:
On the terrace:

SVEN VÄTH
A week off for Sven which always means trouble even if he is opening tonight because a mate joins him on the terrace. Yes it has become an annual tradition this, Sven and Solomun stepping into each others nights for a jolly and somehow it is a collision that works like a dream. And remember you get another chance to meet the guv’nor almost when the doors open as he sets up this Monday night for you.

SOLOMUN
Now one of the biggest and most colourful figures on the island shows no sign of slowing up. Joining us once again, the third year now, we know from past experience Solomun will be raising your eyebrows as well as your knees on the terrace. Expect a seamless set that hides its surprises for a bit and then pounces. Freedom to roam. Can’t wait

In the main room :

ADAM BEYER B2B IDA ENGBERG
Coincidentally here is another one off occasion that now enters its third year of one offness ! If that makes sense. When Adam is joined by Ida in the main room there is a subtly different feel and approach. What an astounding show they produced last year. Anyone who walked into that set, as we did, was not going anywhere for the rest of the night. It was majestic music and it was utterly entrancing. Techno that smoked.

SCUBA
We have less Scuba this season sadly so critical to dive down early – especially if you were around last season. Blistering sets they were from a charming man who knows how to fill every corner of the Club. The last ingredient in another night of utter quality and variety designed so carefully for Cocoon 18

We are 18 and we really like it. Hope you do to.

Ibiza & Formentera

Cocoon Formentera – date 6

It was a very large tINI Thursday last week and a curly whirly night on the Tipic dancefloor. A really splendid set that even on a glorious late evening dragged people away from the terrace and into tINI land. And what a revelation Fabe was, he rolled the dice and came up with some sublime pearlers. Make a note of this fellow, you will be hearing a lot more of him – you heard it here first

Number 6 then and it is time to get randy and reckless in the nicest possible way:

FRANK LORBER
A night we would not dream of missing. Our treasured friend Frank always lets his hair down always here and always drops some tailor made gems for your dancing pleasure – and ours. We cannot quite be certain how things will evolve but we are absolutely certain it will be fun of of the purest kind stir fried with a wink and the involuntary wandering of your legs

ARIAN
Another old friend whose annual appearance here is a joy to behold and to hear. Far too good looking for his own good but the important thing is he plays the gravy and unfortunately we will be starting early again to ensure we hear.

How in the name of sanity can it be number 6 already? All the more reason for you to join us for the mid week special and enjoy a catch up and 2 great Cocoon friends. Frank Lorber and Arian in Tipic

Cocoon Ibiza – date 8

That was a proper big one last week and a sign that we are surging into summer. For the second week those early on the terrace met Sven and this time he proceeded to give a masterclass in how to unleash the majestic Richie Hawtin. As a result the terrace was a blast from beginning to end with Richie simply thumping it. Over the way Alex & Digby in the shape of Digby introduced the night with the subtlety stir fried with panache that is becoming their signature. Sonja picked up on that effortlessly and set up a second Ilario main room gig in 3 weeks. He nailed it.nEvery week now is putting the sensual into seismic, the 8th of the 18th season is upon us.

ON THE TERRACE:

RICARDO VILLALOBOS
You cannot escape his genius this year and thankfully this is just the second of his exclusive to Cocoon Ibiza shows this season. Is there anything more comforting and genuinely exciting in life than Ricardo fiddling with your frequencies on the terrace of Amnesia? Surely not.

DORIAN PAIC
The quiet maestro is getting noisier. Out of the studio and on the road is our Dorian and behind the decks he is making some statements that are long overdue. Do not miss him warming up for his old friend tonight

ALEX & DIGBY
It will be Digby again flying the flag for this duo of endless possibility. A dream of a show at Cocoon in the Park was followed by last Monday in Amnesia and now please make the most of this Monday. You heard it here first

IN THE MAIN ROOM:

NINA KRAVIZ
The third from Nina already this season and if we are not mistaken you will emerge at the end of the night wiser and wetter. The fearless Nina Kraviz has news for your beating heart

CARL CRAIG
Just one chance to see another Detroit ledge with us this season and please do take it and join us right at the front. A little tip though. Formentera is also on Carls Cocoon menu. But CC in the main room, we do that first. Anything can happen with the big speakers

tINI
And fresh from blowing away that crowd in Tipic last Thursday at our Formentera fry up is this curling curator of sound. Jump on some class early doors tonight. It is the wonderful tINI opening the doors to the main room

Cocoon Formentera – date 5

For the first time it was an Adriatique Thursday last week and the two Adrians did exactly what we hoped and massaged the Tipic dancefloor. An irresistible set. It was the perfect steamy music for the first week of July and it will not be the last time. Our very own FDEZ set the tone with his own brand of kinky smooth and the night just went too quickly. It is a simple fact, you have to come early on a Thursday for the full experience.
Number 5 then and we up the tempo:

tINI
Our long time friend and favourite rolls into Formentera for some up close and personal. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face and some tap tap in your toes. Come along tonight for a Tipic tonic and you will for certain be hunting tINI down on the 17th in the main room of Amnesia and a huge Cocoon Monday featuring Ricardo Villalobos, Nina Kraviz and Carl Craig

FABE
Welcome Fabe, a big welcome in fact. We have been checking out your Salty Nuts label and liking what we hear. Producing, collaborating and generally making waves. Now the chance to hear what you dish out on the dancefloor. We will be up at the front.

Into July we go and the water here is crystal clear and so inviting. Have a long swim, dry off and join us early this Thursday night.

Cocoon Ibiza – date 7

If you got down early last week you had that rare pleasure of a night, a whole night, with Sven Väth. It was a trip and a half that swayed and soared just like the crowd who also roared their approval for the riotous live set from Ame. Over the way Dana Ruh played a stunning opening set. The girl has wings, and Nastia had a fizzy crowd and Adam Beyer simply sprayed excellence. We have a king in the main room. And how lucky you are because this 7th week, if history tells us anything, is going to be one of this seasons monsters:

On the terrace :

SVEN VÄTH
Amazingly for the 2nd week running you can rock up to Amnesia as the doors are opening, waltz onto the terrace and find some early evening vinyl being waved around and played by the guv´nor himself. In a repeat of one oft he biggest ever Cocoon nights last year as Sven will open for a bona fide big boy.

RICHIE HAWTIN
Here we are then for the 2nd show from Richie, on the terrace again, but this time with Sven kicking it off – a dream team that has never let us down. A glorious night of music and a night where you need to find a spot on the dancefloor and listen to masters at work. Richie is exclusive to Cocoon this year, make the most of it.

In the main room :

ALEX&DIGBY
And welcome welcome Alex & Digby. Two gigs in two weeks coming your way from two of the brightest sparks out there. Sven was on the case early as you will know from the last two Sound oft the Season compilations. With a new album imminent we really must recommend more than ever an early arrival at the club on the 10th July.

SONJA MOONEAR
A night of 2´s. For her second show this season Sonja takes a walk to her wild side and will be peppering the main room with her unique assaults on the senses. A new favourite fort he Cocoon masses and rightly so.

ILARIO ALICANTE
2nd main room headliner for Ilario this season as his star continues to ascend and this is just a part of a 2017 tour schedule that is practically as hectic as Sven’s. Make a point of investigating the reasons why. Thumpingly good.

You are spoilt for choice

Cocoon Formentera – date 4

It was an Alicante Thursday last week for the first time in 2017 and the atmosphere was Balearic but, as always with Ilario, the best sort of Italian twists and turns are included along with a crowd that just lap it up. Cesar Vinzent made sure everything was ready. Class in a classy club …

Number 4 then and more music that is going to sound so very right here :

ADRIATIQUE
There are plenty of duos out there nowadays. These two Adrians finish each others sentences and behind the decks there is the sort of chemistry that fast tracks careers and from our point of view produces finely tuned sets of music that take all your attention. Because you got sucked on to the dancefloor immediately

FDEZ
Our first FDEZ and is long overdue. Exquisite taste and oh those boyish looks. Come early and feel effervescent very very quickly
It is July. Formentera is beckoning. Make a plan that involves this delicious island and make sure it includes a Thursday.

Cocoon Ibiza – date 6

We surfed through the 5th week already can you believe ? Every year this happens, time wisps and wanders away. We try and keep our feet on the ground and focus but last week was Sven and Acid Pauli on the terrace. Could not miss that – or Ilario, Josh Wink or Konstantin over the way
No easier this week, the number 6:

On the terrace :

SVEN VÄTH ALL NIGHT LONG
For the first time this year your only distraction from a full night with the guv´nor is the juicy interlude below. All night long means what it says. Jog down to Amnesia soon after 12 and the man himself will be waving records around and getting things on the road. You can choose a big fat space on the dancefloor and really get to know your chauffeur for the night, a fabulous driver.

ÂME LIVE
We specialise in this. Every season we slot in for your dancing pleasure the artists that bring something different live and direct to the table. Cocoon veteran Ame is the perfect insertion into a Sven All Night Long. Do not miss, his only live set for us this season.

In the main room:

ADAM BEYER
Little needs to be said here. So consistently brilliant these last many months on a global warming basis yet we reserve the right to be biased and say that his Monday night sets in Amnesia are just so judderingly good. Furthermore they seem to evolve, to interlink. This is Adam Beyer in the main room for Cocoon and please jump on board.

NASTIA
The first of 2 dates for Nastia in Amnesia with us and quite right to. A proper flagbearer for hardnosed yet rhythmic techno with a twist. A Dj with panache. Keep your eyes open in August. Cocoon Tipic in Formentera. You will want more Nastia.

DANA RUH
And also the first of two for Dana Ruh – which rhymes. And so does she. Music for the head , the heart and the feet. A blindingly good way to start a big night in the main room.

We told you there would be bliss last week and Hunter/Game duly provided it with the silky help of Roberto Navarro. It was the perfect way to move on from that massive Monday at Amnesia where both Sven and Ricardo were firing on all cylinders on a classic Cocoon Monday.

Already number 3 and it has a regal feel to it :

ILARIO ALICANTE
And here he is, the undisputed middleweight champion of Cocoon Tipic rolls onto the small island for the first time this season fresh from headlining the main room at Amnesia on Monday. This is an ongoing love affair that has produced already so many scintillating Thursday nights that the fizzy fans of Ilario will be pouring in when the doors open. If you have not seen him play here you really must.

CESAR VINZENT
We cannot get enough of the emerging Cesar – quite simply he plays great music and we defy you not to be shaking your bones the moment he gets things rolling on this 3rd night of Cocoon Tipic.

How we love this party. A meet up, a catch up and a proper dance in a beautiful place. What more do you want as July approaches ?

And then everything really did go a bit crazy – you get the early shows and then the sun starts to get hotter and suddenly by the 4th week. everyone is getting hotter and sweatier.

There is something reassuring about Sven and Ricardo under the same roof on a Monday. You feel everything must be all right with the world. Sonja Moonear , Mano Le Tough and the excellent new boys Martyne, Bodin and Jacob made it an incredibly interesting musical night from start to finish – as usual. Here is how we follow that explosion of sound and colour:

On the terrace :

SVEN VÄTH
We hope you got that first fix of Sven in the main room last week. It was a pounder. It was brillliant.This is a super terrace night however with Acid Pauli setting the scene. Is i tour imagination or does Sven seem tob e getting younger?

ACID PAULI
Well this is a first and a fine one. Acid Pauli brings even more Ibiza to Ibizas most potent party and a lot of colourful chums will no doubt be joining you on the dancefloor. We really look forward to this first expedition.

In the main room :

ILARIO ALICANTE
Knocking the ball around here there and everywhere and after supporting Nina Kraviz on his last show in Amnesia tonight his effotless punchy power and charisma will take you through to the close. Not to be missed

JOSH WINK
And nor ist he outstanding Josh Wink. Such an influential character with a track record that might surprise you. He has popped up with so much excellent work. He very beautifully opened our Cocoon @Tipic Formentera and now a chance for his main room sound. Excellent.

KONSTANTIN
Under the radar but for how long. An Ibiza specialist who is spreading his wings and cropping up with some blinding sets that smell strongly of Ibiza but work perfectly anywhere. As usual we say get down early for another fine artist on the up.

A frothy intriguing night of dance music is bounding your way
We are 18 and still improving. That must be the reason

Cocoon Formentera – Date 2

The opening of our mid week special was an absolute lily. Early action on the dance floor because a new favourite is in our midst. Cesar Vinzent. He set up Josh Wink who responded by drenching the Tipic dancefloor in pleasure. He pulled all sorts of chestnuts out of the box in a marvellous set that kicked off our biggest ever Tipic season

Number 2 has a blissful feel to it:

HUNTER/GAME
Too cool for school these guys, even cooler than last year when they made an early mark on Tipic with their distinctive enveloping grooves that had everyone woozy in a good way. Now they are out on the road and making some serious new friends as well as a new label. Look out for Just This Vinyl and some heady mixtures. Very happy to have them for our second Thursday session

ROBERTO NAVARRO
Local legend Roberto knows his way around this island – and also his extensive record collection. Look out for him this year and look out for him tonight because last season he was a big part of one of the best nights of the year. Always in fact at this lovely club, get down early

Join us at Tipic for a chat and a dance again this Thursday, and every Thursday. And then tell us to get to work early on Friday. It can be a bit too good this party…….

The boys and girls night last Monday. The terrace was feverish. Fabio Florido to Gaiser Live ing it up and then our first Richie of the season and hours that went all too quickly. 4 more exclusive chances to see the maestro this year and try not to miss any of them Over in the club the climate was also tropical. Anthea and tINI toyed with the crowd before Nina Kraviz rammed the techno ball into the net for the 2nd time in 3 weeks.

Three Mondays of motivational music have set us up for a knee trembler on week 4 spearheaded by legends. Cast your eyes over this proposal for a Monday night out :

In the main room

SVEN VÄTH
Formidable this year, some stunning gigs already on the summer tour. However when Sven steps into the main room of Amnesia for the first time in any season you know what to do. Drop everything. Go and listen to some records spun by someone who knows this room backwards and forwards

MANO LE TOUGH
Those of you who witnessed his ferocious sets last season will no doubt be in position for another excursion with Mano Le Tough on his only show with us this year. If you missed him then be assured he will warm up the main room in a sultry fashion

On the terrace :

RICARDO VILLALOBOS
Greetings Ricardo. We had to wait until week number 4 for the first of your 6 exclusive Cocoon Ibiza shows this year. Nothing more needs to be said. Well lets just add that many of us are dribbling with anticipation

SONJA MOONEAR
There are 4 portions of poetry coming your way from Sonja this year. 3 here on the terrace and 1 in the main room come July. It has been quite a year for Moonear and the best strategy must be to get a piece of it immediately – why wait?

MARTYNÉ B2B BODIN&JACOB
Don’t know these guys? You soon will, Traffic Records. Daring, innovative, playful music that cannot be pinned down. Not so long ago these 3 joined a Boiler Room inspired celebration of 20 years of Cocoon at our Frankfurt HQ. It took two weeks to tidy up the office but it was well worth it. This is not a night to arrive late.

A ridiculously brilliant opening party, yet last week Sven simply came back and showed us some more on the terrace. Absolutely brilliant. Gerd Janson set it up. In the main room Dense and Pika were a debut revelation before Patrick Topping so saucily introduced a masterclass from Adam Beyer.

Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it there is no hiding place this year, no mercy, no skipping a week because every week smells of classic Week 3 is next, welcome to our boys and girls night :

On the terrace:

RICHIE HAWTIN
Now then. If you are anything like us you have been waiting for this. It feels so good to write that this is the first of 5 exclusive to Cocoon Richie Hawtin shows on the Island this year. Not much more needs to be said. Last year there was just 1 and look what happened that night with Sven. It was sensational.

GAISER LIVE
And what a way to warm you up? Very happy to welcome back one of the finest -when it comes to dishing out live sets that just fit together so perfectly but stay raw, and unpredictable. Gaiser is live for you tonight.

FABIO FLORIDO
A very busy Cocoon night and to get you in the mood for everything an Italian producer and Dj who you should make a point of checking eary doors. An interesting gentleman.

In the main room:

NINA KRAVIZ
The main room took a beautiful pounding from Nina Kravitz on that amazing opening party night, Delivered with such a flourish was an uncompromising set of proper techno that swept the crowd away. Brilliant it was. The second show is coming your way tonight.

tiNI
One of our favourite and most talented friends makes her first appearance this year with her exquisite taste and a satchel full of great music. It is always a pleasure to welcome pure energy to the main room. tINI always brings that.

ANTHEA
As you can see it is a girls night in the main room and we have in the house for the first time yet another new talent worth your attention. Berlin based Anthea has been impressing the best with her silky meshing of house and techno. First up tonight.

There was something in the air right from the start last Monday night as Cocoon Ibiza opened the doors of Amnesia for its 18th season. People poured in early and took advantage of 2 very different characters who got this party going. Dj Koze effortlessly cool on the terrace and Dorian Paic began his big summer in style. Ilario just gets more and more beguiling and set up a superb Nina Kravitz blast of techno heaven.

Week 2 shapes up like this :

On the terrace :

SVEN VÄTH
If you were lucky enough to be on the terrace last Monday welcome to second helpings – it was just fantastic from the guv’nor. If you missed it well here you go. Just 7 days later we roll again and the man is crackling hot. The beauty of it is we have a season of this to look forward to.

GERD JANSON
And we also welcome Gerd Janson this week, the first time with us at Cocoon Ibiza. We have been looking forward to presenting this crate digging house honcho to you on the terrace for ages and tonight is the night. Get down early for a spring in your step and a grin from ear to ear. Trust us.

In the main room :

ADAM BEYER
His Cocoon Ibiza dates are now something you write into your diary 5 minutes after the season line up is announced. And pop pickers there are 7 huge Mondays with the man to savour this year. This is number one.

PATRICK TOPPING
And here comes Patrick Topping for his first solo gig with Cocoon Ibiza and we could not be happier to have him. He can do it all but tonight lets concentrate on enjoying a proper set from someone you cannot take your eyes or ears off in 2017

DENSE & PIKA
We first noticed them after something dirty and different popped up on the Barcode label, a collaboration with our main room headliner. That alone was enough to tell us this would be an interesting way to kick off the main room. Get along early tonight.

Cocoon Ibiza – The grand opening 2017

COCOON GRAND OPENING 29th MAY

The summer of 2017 seemed to begin early this year.

For us it all starts on Monday when we can finally welcome you all to the 18th season of Cocoon Ibiza. Since October last year we have been doing all the listening and absorbing and evaluating and then the scheming and planning and then more listening. The harder you practice the luckier you get someone once said and we have been able to create 19 sensational Monday nights and the first smells so good that we can hear it from here

We present on the 29th May something special on the dancefloors of Amnesia:
ON THE TERRACE

Sven Vath 3:00 – END
It should not come as a surprise that Sven arrives tonight fired up. A summer tour is underway but what can matter more than the Cocoon opening party in Ibiza? This unbelievably will be the 18th time Sven has fired the starting gun for his party that everyone and his dog said could not work. He goes his own way, plays his own way and you see before you an indispensable part of modern dance music

DJ Koze 0:00 – 3:00
An easy choice to ask Koze to join Sven on the terrace for opening night. Whenever they are in the same building only good things can happen. An intuitive relationship and when Koze gets to work everything bubbles anyway. The perfect way to launch the terrace

CLUB

Nina Kraviz 4:30 – END
Cocoon presents in season 18 an array of the finest artists currently treading the boards and this is the first of 5 for Nina and we wanted you to see her in the main room pronto. A fabulous artist and the place will gush.

Ilario Alicante 2:00 – 4:30
And there is no stopping him either. A legion of new fans and he will be here there and everywhere this year. A massive summer tour. Four shows for us in Formentera. Get on the bus early and experience Ilario in the main room for the primero time this season. There will be nil regrets

Dorian Paic 0:00 – 2:00
A quiet champion is heading for a big year. It can take a while somethimes but the genius of Dorian Paic is getting the attention it deserves finally and his will be one of the first noises you hear in season number 18

There you have it, the first is ready for you. . This time 5 artists of distinction and as you know everyone plays and keeps playing.

So happy to see you all again, if not today then somewhere along the way. It is going to be a really fine ride in 2017.

Love from
