Preview: We Love... Opening Fiesta

With the new opening times of 7pm til 7am, we take a look at what's in store for the 2012 Opening Fiesta.

Last year saw so many musical highlights under the We Love party name that it was easier to just say the entire season was a highlight. They catered for everybody's tastes, bringing back old favourites and introducing some new faces to the We Love family.

Thankfully it's much the same case for the 2012 Opening Fiesta. Last years Innerversions showcase was a masterclass in party throwing, with a great vibe flowing all night long on la Terraza from Henrik Schwarz, Ame and Dixon on rotation. This year though they are joined by the impressive Tensnake with a live performance, and last years favourites Ryan O Gorman.

The dark and intimidating space that is the Discoteca will see Carl Craig and Derrick May perform once again after equally successful visits in 2011, ensuring Detroit is properly represented. Carl will be performing live as '69', the alias once used back in 1991 - 1995 to produce classics such as Sound on Sound and The Sound of Music album. Check out 'The Legendary Adventures Of A Filter King' on Planet E as a preview. But expect masks, darkness and visuals to further stimulate the mind.

Joining these two will be Paul Woolford vs Ben UFO, performing their debut joint performance, and the Spotlight featured podcaster Jem Haynes.
With the main players taken care of, we take a quick look over the one of our favourite Ibiza dancefloors, Space's Sunset Terrace as Radio 1s Jaymo & Andy George return, along with The Nextmen and Mr Doris post midnight. Then if you fancy taking the party down a notch or two, you have two more amazing spaces in El Salon and the Premier Etage.
