This is Resistance Ibiza!
There are many reasons that make Tuesday night at Privilege one to remember. Here’s what makes it so special.
Stepping into Privilege’s Main Room, clubbers cannot but fixate on the phosphorescence that surrounds the chamber. Chromatically beaming a palette of predominantly red, purples and blues, the lasers strobe around the dancefloor, creating an alternate dimension.
Hovering above the DJs and dancefloor were large black panels, making the crowd extremely curious. As the tunes got heavier around 2:00 during Joseph Capriati, the panels started their journey moving above the crowd.
Elevating back and forth and side to side at a very slow pace, they descended quite close to the dancing throngs of people dancing. To everybody’s surprise, they began to illuminate and created a flashing ceiling above the dancefloor.
The lighting throughout the evening was second to none, clearly the work of many professional technicians. The light shows created a euphoric party atmosphere. On the stage acrobats and a tribe of dancers carried a vibrant energy. Adding cohesion to the room, they all moved to the beat and carried themselves effortlessly.
In the Main Room Joseph Capriati played a techno focused set. Meanwhile in the Terrace was Joris Voorn. Traits reached deeper into the techno realm.
John Digweed and Sasha went with the progressive house and techno combination.
The final sets of the evening (or morning) had us torn between the two rooms. The highly anticipated pair, Carl Cox invaded the Main Room with a powerful techno set and charisma.
Situated amongst the hills of San Rafael the superclub sits high above the green tips of the trees, looking like a giant from the outside. Privilege’s territorial viewpoint will be familiar to many, especially if you have joined the fiesta in the smaller room of the venue Terrace aka the Vista Club. With tall glass floor-to-ceiling windows enveloping the club you can see more miles, enjoying an 180-degree view of Ibiza Town, and the sea is also in sight. Both look especially idyllic lit up from afar.
If you make it through to the last set of the night, you will also play witness to an unforgettable sunrise whilst partying in the Vista Club. As the room lights up as the rays of the sun beam inside, clubbers gage a sense of euphoria.
The Main Room looks similar to an aircraft hangar, with the ceiling reaching 35m high. With the grand open space, it only leaves room for phenomenal sounds and outstanding production to travel.
Even the grounds of the club will catch up by surprise. As you enter Privilege’s large gates, you are greeted by a long winding driveway leading up to the entrance. Trees blanketing each side of the drive make it seem as though you are heading into a form of wonderland. That’s exactly what Resistance is: a wonderland of music and production.
