May 24 until 26 sees Sands Ibiza on Playa d’en Bossa celebrate its opening with three back to back parties. Friday May 24 sees Charlie Hedges and Bushwacka! take centre stage over looking the beach as Sands opens its doors for another memorable season of long, hot days, delicious food and cocktail menus and more than its fair share of high profile parties. Saturday May 25 is the Angolan Back Yard Party, featuring DJ Sylvi, DJ Satellite, DJ Ketchup, DJ Rudy Ranx, OS Kurduristas and some traditional dancers. Rounding the weekend off and completing the stylish opening is Secret Life, featuring Dave Seaman, Pete Gooding, Hausewerks, Danny O (Bora Bora) and Ken Fan (Vista). In conjunction with Safehouse management, Da banda and Secret Life, it promises to be the perfect opening savo, full of talented spinners and with plenty of time to enjoy the new menu delivered by Tim Payne.
The stunning beach club on Playa d’en Bossa is no stranger to a party, for the last few years, Carl Cox has hosted his birthday party there, not to mention his annual funk-a thin where he embraces his soulful roots and delivers a funk and soul set that has the beach rocking. In fact, he loves the beach club so much that he bought into it, along with his Safehouse Management team, promising to deliver much more to that end of the beach. With the quality on show at the opening weekend, it looks like that promise is about to be kept. This summer sees new manager Pedro Cervero and new Chef Tim Payne join the team on the beach and, with the combined experience of one of the island’s top operators and finest chefs it promises to be another amazing season for the popular beach club/ restaurant.
