Last night Booom opened its doors for Defected in the House. There were lines down the street with the venue filled to the rim. Party goers were excited as not much else had yet opened on the island.
Defected in the house has made the move from Saturdays to Tuesdays which will run for the next 20 weeks, with the closing party at the end of September. Defected is one of the most well-known house music brands recently celebrating its 15th year anniversary. The UK record label has more than half a million people attend their events every year, in over 40 countries across the globe.
Booom is one of the newest clubs in Ibiza only opening its doors for the first time last year. Before it was refurbished it was known as Penelopes and Haven. It is located in Ibiza Town near Pacha along the marina.
The multi-level club has a sunken dance floor with balconies and VIP areas above overlooking the DJ. There are several exclusive VIP areas and an upper and lower bar. The club is smaller than some of the others in Ibiza with a capacity of 1000, making it more intimate and perhaps why many celebrities attend here.
Expect to see a spectacular sound and lighting show with a custom made Pioneer system. For the night the club was lit up with blue lights and the Defected logo across the screens. The lighting system is so impressive that Booom can be made to look completely different for every event it holds.
The opening party for Defected brought in a talent pool of DJs. Gutis live set was a stand out; he used native instruments, keyboards and controllers. Noir known for the colab Angel with Hayze is a very in demand DJ across the world, Oliver $ has been rapidly growing the past 3 years and favourite resident Sam Devine took the stage killing it as always. She is a resident for Defected and also has a weekly radio show.
In the coming weeks expect to see the best house DJs from around the globe including Sonny Fodera, MK, Kenny Dope, Cristoph, Andrea Olive, Copyright, Flashmob and so many more! Stay tuned we will share line ups as they are released.
If you are planning a trip to Ibiza be sure to include Booom in your itinerary.
