It’s a massive change of pace as the Ibiza Town venue is open-air–a rarity on the island–so parties start in the late afternoon and finish at midnight. It’s a recipe that has proven very tempting for the man who knocked Armin off the top spot, as the world’s new #1 DJ Hardwell has now confirmed the rumors that his I Am Hardwell brand will take over the venue every Tuesday throughout the season.
Opening in 2011, Ushuaia’s concept is both clever and brave, but is clearly paying off. Privilege is officially the biggest club in the world, and like Amnesia (whose longstanding Cream night makes Thursday on Ibiza a trance extravaganza), both were open-air back in the ’80s. If daytime clubbing is making a serious comeback on the island, there’s no one better than Hardwell and Armin to prove it, making Ushuaia one of the most exciting venues on the island this summer.
I Am Hardwell starts on June 24, while ASOT Ibiza hits the island the same week on June 26.
