This year Cocoon (the legendary German techno label headed by the equally legendary German Sven Väth) will celebrate its 20th year of parties in Ibiza, making it one of the longest running residencies on the island of all time.
For all but last year (when Pacha was the venue) these iconic parties have been held at Ibiza institution Amnesia, so long running fans of the night were very pleased to see that in 2019, “Papa” Sven and his friends would be back at the club to host Cocoon once again starting with the opening party on Monday 27 May. The lineups are absolutely huge featuring everyone you would expect from the techno world such as Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Adam Beyer, Ricardo Villalobos and Ilario Alicante plus some acts you wouldn’t normally associate with the Cocoon sound including Pete Tong, Seth Troxler and DJ Koze.
But wait, there’s more.
This being Cocoon’s 20th birthday on the island and all, they’ve come out all guns blazing by announcing two live shows at open-air super club Ushuaia to really book-end the summer season with a bang. The first one, taking place this Saturday 25 May features old school ravers Underworld (think Born Slippy for those too young to remember Trainspotting) playing live along with Sven, Ilario Alicante and Dana Ruh.
The second show happening later in the season on 13 September features THE original electronic act, for their first ever show in Ibiza. We’re talking the act that essentially started electronic music as we know it and changed the course of music history: Kraftwerk. The German revolutionaries will bring their live show Kraftwerk 3D to the Ushuaia stage and of course our gracious host Sven Väth will play the supporting role. This is a rare opportunity to see an iconic act that has shaped the music we love today in a venue so lavish and hedonistic as Ushuaia.
So that’s Cocoon’s 2019 Ibiza season in a nutshell. 10 incredible Monday nights at Amnesia and two never-seen-before parties at Ushuaia. Tickets are available for all shows now, and if you’re looking for an amazing place to stay during your time in Ibiza, then have a look at our brand new Stoke Villa Ibiza.
See you on the dance floor.
