Cocoon Ibiza – Date 3
Ibiza & Formentera
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:
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
Quality, variety and a crowd on the dancefloor like no other. The 18th season of Cocoon Ibiza has it all – and this is just party number 3

Cocoon Ibiza – Date 2
Ibiza & Formentera
COCOON IBIZA – 5th June 2017
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 :
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.
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 :
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.
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.
Every Monday a concoction to keep you on your toes. We are 18 for a reason.

Cocoon Ibiza – The grand opening 2017
Ibiza & Formentera
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
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.
