1989 was a year to remember, Space Ibiza opened its doors. It was the only club in the world where one could dance in daylight, everybody wanted to come, and even the best DJs of the moment wished to be a part of it, it was the place to be!
Little by little, people could enjoy various atmospheres and varied musical styles as the different arenas began to take shape. It was in 1994 when Space Ibiza threw one of its first parties with international DJs, it was a promotion to introduce Red Bull in Ibiza and the line up included Sven Vath and Marc Spoon, the kings of techno and trance at that time. Since then, we’ve had great parties: Up Yer Ronson with Sasha, Renaissance with Dave Seaman and John Digweed, React with Carl Cox and even live acts such as Reel 2 Real with Erick Morillo at the turntables.
Back in 1999 we created, together with Darren Hughes and Danny Whittle, the famous marathon 22 hour Sunday parties, starting at 8am on Sunday until 6 am of next Monday. We had a lot of different DJs that played diverse musical styles so people could go from one arena to the other and choose the place they liked best. These parties became the meeting point for Ibiza residents and a must attend for everybody else on the island.
Space’s history changes in 2008. New government law forbids morning parties and we are obliged to focus on evening-night parties. So, we had to be creative and develop fresh initiatives, such as in-house parties BE and Mondays Calling, and associations with promoters such as Madrid’s Goa. Our hard work and enthusiasm were once again appreciated by the crowd and Spanish Deejay Mag nominates Space Ibiza as Best Spanish Club.
2009 begins with the right foot on the ground. We have a well deserved 3rd position on DJMAGs Top 100 Clubs chart. And we got engines running at full throttle... 7 days a week, 7 major parties... this is Space’s new phase... a party for all your senses.
2010 was a great season. We started up the year with a major festival in Sydney and Space Ibiza On Tour reached the 4 cardinal points of the planet. We even obtained Deejaymags first prize as Best Club of the Year.
Space Ibiza is ready to surprise its fans and admirers with yet another season of excellence. This will be our 22nd season and we celebrated it with a massive and spectacular Opening Fiesta last May 29th.
