Privilege Ibiza

Privilege started life in the early 70’s as a community swimming pool
with a bar that served mainly locals from San Rafael and was called club

In 1978 it was sold to three Basques, one of which was the Spanish
footballer Jose Antonio Santamaria, who renamed it KU, after a club they
owned already in San Sebastian. Ku was a seminal venue in the 80’s,

Summer 2010 saw the then biggest DJ in the world Tiesto return to

Supermartxe and Tribes. The celebrity of Ku club may have long since

for decades is still there to be seen.

More recently, the club has evolved, aligning itself with some of the
most innovative and creative brands on the scene as well as some of the
biggest names of the last couple of decades. Ibiza 2017 sees Carl Cox
take on a few parties under the Pure Carl Cox banner and there is a
reunion of Sasha and Dir=gweed for a Resistance residency that will make
Tuesday night’s in Ibiza very competitive indeed. Stay tuned for more
information on the season.
