Amnesia Ibiza

    Situated near San Rafael on the San Antonio road, Amnesia is another one
    of Ibiza’s super clubs. The venue is steeped in history and is the
    popular residence of many of the world’s clubbing giants. Originally the
    home of five generations of the Planells family, who eventually sold
    their country house and moved into town in April1970, it became a place
    for hippie bands to play and for others to indulge in hippie culture.

    In May 1976, Antonio Escohotado, a young philosopher from Madrid signed
    a lease with the view to opening the venue as a discotheque; his belief
    was that people needed an escape from their humdrum lives and with that
    in mind provisionally decided upon the name ‘The Workshop Of
    Forgetfulness’. Luckily for us, he changed his mind soon after and opted
    for Amnesia.

    It was in the 80s that Amnesia began to take the shape that we know and
    love today; freestyle mixing took pride of place and house music became
    the language of groundbreaking clubs around the world. It was at this
    time that legends such as Alfredo came to the fore, guiding Ibiza
    through the next few of decades and facilitating the evolution that has
    seen the island become one of the most important clubbing destinations
    on the planet. The terrace was originally open air but due to complaints
    from nearby neighbours the open-air dancefloor had to be covered. The
    Terrace, however, remains one of those unique Ibiza spaces where
    anything can and usually does happen.

    With two rooms that produce an equally magnificent atmosphere, its no
    wonder Amnesia remains one of the most influential of the Ibiza clubs.
    Home to long term residents Cocoon and Cream, it’s also the place to
    find Together, Music On and the recently announced Elrow. The Saturday
    night will play host to the Spanish clubbing giant that has become one
    of the most colourful parties on the clubbing capital in recent years. .
