Avicii Announces Ibiza Takeover 2013

The electro prince presents a fifteen hour fiesta beginning in Ushuaïa and continuing in Amnesia

Length. On the island this summer the prolonging of nights and the hedonistic stretching of DJ sets seems to be a welcome theme. Extended sets from Sven, Villalobos, Dice and Sasha have all prickled like fresh, exciting lights but now Avicii has motioned to eclipse them all.

On the Sunday 4th of August Avicii - the progressive house prince - will present a 15 hour non-stop event, the "Avicii Ibiza Takeover" alongside fifteen other guest DJs. The catch is: it's across two venues - both Ushuaïa and Amnesia. The party begins at 5pm with Avicii's weekly Ushuaïa residency before shirking its usual midnight closing and continuing the revelry within the warm confines of Amnesia until 7am.

The 'takeover' shall be Avicii's debut appearance at Amnesia and a rare opportunity to catch the star in the more intimate, sonorous environment of a conventional club. For the Amnesia stage of proceedings the full line-up shall boast Brian Cross and John Dahlback amongst others, all set to take over both the Main Room and the Terrace.

As underground might meets airy abandon this event is sure to be a collaborative landmark - is this the next step in the fluid merging of artists and venues we've seen on the island? Will this pave the way for more festival sized fiestas? Both the walls and sound-system of Amnesia will be put to the test.
