David Guetta Injects New Life into Ibiza's Clubbing Scene
Ibiza holidays have always focused on clubbing. In the '90s, when the European dance scene was
at it's height, the island was jammed solid with party goers. This summer, as electronic dance
music hits new heights and takes the US by storm, superstar veteran DJ David Guetta takes the
stage to headline at Pacha on Thursday nights.
(PRWeb UK) June 20, 2010 -- Dance music first took the world by the scruff of its musical neck in the late 80s, in
a storm that raged right through to the late '90s. But David Guetta, hailed as the saviour of electronic music, is set
to kick off a second dance music revolution... and potentially a second Ibiza summer of love.
His chart topping collaborations with the Black Eye Peas, Kelly Rowland, Kelis, Akon and more, together with
the Lady Gaga phenomenon, have raised awareness of dance music in the USA where it was first born. Chicago
and New York dance music got off to a blinding start in the late '80s but the US media soon brought a halt to the
genre's popularity, demonising it as only fit for drug abusers and gay men. As a result it took off in Europe but
Dance turned out to be a relatively damp squib across the Atlantic.
Daniel Ox, BeatTheBrochure MD, has noticed a sudden surge in bookings for Ibiza holidays this summer.
“Guetta heads the vanguard of a new wave of European DJs and producers who have a wide appeal in the US as
well as closer to home. So if you're booking Ibiza package holidays this summer, expect to be joined by a growing
contingent of American house fans, flocking to Pacha on Thursdays to see Guetta in action.”
Some say the island's club scene has been missing something for the past decade. If the rumours are to be
believed, Guetta will be breathing new life - as well as blasting a collection of seriously funky tunes - into Ibiza
holidays this summer.
