Ibiza club rewind | Ushuaïa

The best sets from years gone by.

Whether you’re flying in during daylight or after nightfall, pivoting in your seat to get that first glimpse of Ibiza imagery is part of the experience. A rush of endorphins as your Balearic paradise awaits.

Coming in low as you approach the runway, one complex in particular will catch your eye in the final descent.

Rising like a mirage from the sands of Playa d’en Bossa beach, Ushuaïa Ibiza is the next stop on our island-round Ibiza club rewind tour.

The venue’s dual function as both a hotel and a party destination makes for an alluring prospect.

Outside its front entrance, Ushuaïa’s hall of fame points to a star-studded affair.

The biggest names in the music business are flown in to play on the festival-sized stage. From Swedish House Mafia to Snoop Dogg, Calvin Harris to the late Avicii - that’s the stature we’re talking about. Even electronic music pioneers Underworld and Kraftwerk have performed here.

Many camera-moments spring to mind from Ushuaïa’s short history, but here are three sets we’ve picked out. Continue reading for some exciting Ibiza 2021 news!


BIG | 2 September 2019

Let’s start with one such demi-god.

Such is the pull-power of David Guetta, he is one of the elite few who has ever held two residencies at the same time. Aside from globally renowned F*** ME I’M FAMOUS!, he continues to throw a second daytime party at Ushuaïa.

Called BIG, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

If you ever needed reminding about just how much of a bonafide superstar David Guetta is, the set above should leave you in no doubt.


ANTS | 19 July 2014

It isn’t only big spectacle EDM and sensory overloads, Ushuaïa has always kept one ear to the underground as well.

Down the years, the likes of Used + Abused, Luciano & Friends and Le Grand Bazaar have all brought a wealth of revered selectors to Ushuaïa. However, none of them compare to TNL’s own in-house production, ANTS.

Since landing in 2013, ANTS has taken over the island. Capturing the imagination of the public with its stark monochrome marketing, ANTS became the biggest event on Saturday daytimes.

Joris Voorn and Nic Fanciulli have both played roles in establishing the party, but when the two friends combine business gets serious. In 2014, the duo stormed ANTS with a series of La Familia takeovers. Check-out some of their finest work above.


Luciano | 2010

What’s less well known, is that this is actually Ushuaïa’s second incarnation on Ibiza.

The original was located a few hundred yards south amongst the sand dunes and was a bit more humble. Still attracted the top tier of DJ talent, mind. Some things don’t change. It was a bit of a hidden gem, so even those who visited the island pre-2011, may not have known about it.

It was the chosen location for many afterhours. On this occasion, it’s that man Luciano again and the Cadenza crew with the deep and tribal vibes.

Magical times. Still, nothing stays the same, and we must say that Ushuaïa in its current guise is marveled the world over.


The future

Yesterday, it was announced that Ushuaïa will open for hotel guests from 28 May. As yet, that doesn’t include the return of events.

Meanwhile, The Night League’s other venue, nightclub Hï Ibiza, has been vocal about its party plans. So should Ibiza find itself in a position where events are permitted later in the summer, at least guests won’t have far to walk to get their party fix!
