Pick of the Week: 10th - 16th June

The best of the best, sir.

Back by popular demand is Ibiza Spotlight's Pick of the Week series as we roll into the second installment, lovingly curated by the Spotlight clubbing team. No more staring blankly at the party calendar, overwhelmed by the excess of choice; here's what's hot next week.

Cocoon Opening Party
Monday 10th June

The father we always wanted strolls confidently from his sets at this year's International Music Summit Grand Finale and Ushuaïa Opening party into his very own opening, as Cocoon swings open the doors to the vine covered jungle themed techno paradise we like to call home every Monday for the next 17 weeks. Guy Gerber mixes things up a little with a live set away from his Wisdom of the Glove party on Wednesday, joined by Sascha Dive and Sven in the newly improved Main Room, whilst resident Ricardo Villalobos tops the Terrace bill.

Wisdom of the Glove
Wednesday 12th June

Guy Gerber makes it onto our pick of the week list again! His Wednesday party at Pacha has caused an interesting stir across the island, with less of a focus on it being a true party, but more a 'happening', man. Armed with a ridiculously overpriced single glove (not even a pair) for something like 150,000€, the two artists to see here would be Mathew Dear and Mathew Jonson. Serious stuff.

Cream Opening Party
Thursday 13th June

Moving from chin stroking to straight up party vibes as one of the island longest serving promoters kicks off another season of electro, house and trance monsters. Paul Van Dyk, rumoured to enjoy horses in his spare time (erm...), dons his trance pants and will top the Main Room lineup with his live setup - backed up by the team of ever loyal residents. The first Thursday Terrace rave of the year sees Laidback Luke bring his Super You&Me label parties to the fold, with Hardwell as the special guest. Don't forget, there is also the Cream Sunset Cruise earlier in the evening to attend too.

Music On Opening Party
Friday 14th June

Marco Carola's bold move away from the Cocoon family last year raised a few eyebrows for some people, but the Friday night techno bomb proved to be a success, and with a re-think of the Main Room programming things are looking very nice indeed. It was always a case of everyone packing into the Terrace for Carola, but things have evened out nicely, and Joseph Capriati heads up the Main Room, supported by the Neverdogs who provided a full 12hr set at a villa party the weekend just past - respect.

Saturday 15th June

This party holds a special place in a lot of workers hearts, being a favourite of many over the last few years. The Space run party now takes place on Saturday nights (last year it was run on Thursdays with ENTER.) across the Terraza mainly and El Salon as a side-show. This is a very special one indeed, as Juan Atkins tops the bill. We're talking one of, if not THE, creators of techno music, hailing from the techno homeland - Detroit. This is something you probably shouldn't miss. Nina Kraviz and Levon Vincent, headline artists in their own right, more than worth seeing too.

from 22:00
