The brainchild of Frankfurt born Sven Väth, Cocoon celebrates its 15th year in 2014. There are certain nights in Ibiza that become synonymous with certain clubs, and Cocoon is just that with Amnesia. It never fails to draw in crowds, being just as popular with tourists as it is with residents and workers. A prevailing force of techo sound, Cocoon remains at the forefront of bringing this genre to the Ibiza crowds. Energetic, dynamic and diverse; its is hard not to be captivated by Cocoon.
The history of Cocoon is somewhat defined by its loyal family of DJs. Many of the original team remain behind it to today, with its evolving sound still being created by the likes of: Ricardo Villalobos, Paco Osuna, and of course Sven Väth.
The sheer talent that drove it in the early days, can be seen by the individual success achieved by many of the other original members. Look back to 2003, and Richie Hawtin and Marco Carola could also be seen among the Cocoon line-up, remaining solid members for many consecutive years. Now respectively championing their own nights: ENTER. and Music On, it is a testament to the platform Cocoon can and does provide for artists. The list of artists who have played the Cocoon decks is illustrious, reading like a who’s who of Ibiza DJs, even Carl Cox took a turn in 2001.
Throughout the years, Cocoon has made a name for itself for providing the perfect blend of quality music with stunning visuals, and the odd eccentric twist to boot. With a history of hosting unofficial after-hour parties and extending the night far past the official closing times, Cocoon doesn’t always adhere to the rules just one more reason for its enduring popularity.
2014 sees Cocoon go back to basics. Sven Väth continues to pursue his passion for producing the best music in the best setting, confirming his place at 14 of the 18 Monday nights at Amnesia. There will never be more than two DJs and one live act on each floor, ensuring longer set performances and more opportunity for those booked to show off their potential. They have also confirmed 8 exciting terrace takeovers from Luciano and his new concept Origins. See you at the opening on 2nd June 2014.
