Ibiza club rewind | Hï Ibiza

The best sets from years gone by.

Comparatively speaking, Hï Ibiza is a newcomer on Ibiza's decorated clubbing landscape. Not that you would know it. The island's newest club has wasted no time in making an impression.

Hï Ibiza might only have been open for four summers (2017, 2018, 2019 and 2022), but we couldn't possibly imagine Ibiza without her now.

The Night League (TNL), the team behind the venue, has its finger firmly on the pulse. The programme is always ahead of the curve, the production industry-leading and the delivery executed with military precision. What is it about Hï Ibiza that captures the imagination so?

Perhaps it's the high-spec Theatre, reconfigured for each party? Maybe it's the weekly line-up, packed top to bottom with A-listers? Or could it be, that TNL tore up the rule book and set about creating the club of the future with the next generation of clubbers as its target audience?

The reality is, it's all of those things and plenty more.

As our Ibiza club rewind series docks in Playa d'en Bossa, we turn the spotlight to Hï Ibiza. As feels appropriate, we shine the light on each of the three rooms.

Black Coffee | The Theatre | 25 August 2018

South African Nkosinathi Maphumulo was the first of Hï Ibiza's residents to be unveiled in the run-up to the 2017 season.

After some critically acclaimed appearances at DC10 the previous summer and a growing profile, Black Coffee was certainly on the ascent. Even so, it was a signing that took many off guard.

With his blend of atmospheric House and stately guests, Black Coffee quickly turned himself into the island's Mr Saturday Night. Watch our host command The Theatre above, with music coming from Eelke Kleijn, Art Department and London Grammar.

Vintage Culture | Club Room | 2 August 2022

It's no secret that The Night League has its eye on the ball and this next appointment was certainly one with the future in mind. When it comes to electronic music, few emerging markets have shown the promise of Brazil in recent years. The scene is booming there, as newly breaking artists mop up streaming plays for fun.

One of them is Vintage Culture, who TNL duly snapped up to take charge of the Club Room on Wednesday nights alongside FISHER. A calculated move not unlike the one for Black Coffee. It was certainly out-of-the-box. By the end of summer, it was clear it was another master stroke.

Enjoy music from John Summit, Offaiah and Sofi Tukker, but most of all get a sense for the unlimited potential behind Vintage Culture.

Melon Bomb (at Glitterbox) | The Wild Corner | 2022

Perhaps not so much a secret anymore as it once was, the Wild Corner is still capable of surprising first-time visitors!

Hï Ibiza's high-tech toilet rave reimagines what it means to "take a comfort break" - and, yes, the W.C. initials are very deliberate.

For the true Wild Corner experience, look no further than Glitterbox. The famed Sunday night takes things to new levels and the vibe in the toilets is electric. Our very own homegrown Melon Bomb are often on hand for it - and the dastardly foursome always deliver.

This recording features music from Butch, Dirty Secretz and is filled with plenty of Disco edits.

The future

Unflinching for its vision, Hï Ibiza has made scarcely any changes from last year's successful campaign. Remember, the club picked up the decorated top spot in DJ Mag's annual Top 100 Clubs poll. When you have its talent at your disposal, it makes sense to stick rather than twist.

The Martinez Brothers, FISHER, Afterlife, David Guetta, Black Coffee and Glitterbox are once again the faces and brands taking care of business from Tuesday through to Sunday.

The only new addition, Eric Prydz on Monday, previously held residence in the summers of 2017 and 2018. This time, he's condensed his immersive audio-visual masterpiece HOLO into a club show. Anybody who has seen any version of that show will know what a feast for the senses it is.

Other than that, the only minor change to report is that Idris Elba is relieved of his Club Room duties on Fridays and is replaced by Meduza and James Hype.
