LEGENDARY CLUB SPACE IBIZA CELEBRATE THEIR 25TH ANNIVERSARY AT THE ARCHES

Summer clubbing has become synonymous with the name Space Ibiza. If you’re lucky enough to have visited the beautiful Balearic Isles, you will know that no visit is complete without experiencing a party at Space, and dancing on the world-famous Space Terrace, a home-from-home for nearly every big name in house and techno.

All the legends have played here – 2014 saw Arches patron and techno ambassador Carl Cox curating a series of epic parties under the Music Is Revolution banner, bringing the cream of his Intec Digital label to the club, with sets from Hot Since 82MKFatboy SlimGreen Velvet, Intec’s co-leader Jon RundellJulio BashmoreYousef and many more. Richie Hawtin meanwhile presided over the Enter. parties, setting new standards for multi-media techno performances.

Space Ibiza is widely considered to be the Mecca of electronic music, and has become a second home for music lovers from the five continents. This year, Space Ibiza celebrates 25 years in the game with an epic world tour, bringing some of the club’s favourite DJs to key cities around the globe. We’re thrilled to announce that a key date in this tour will be their visit to The Arches on 31 January 2015.

Pepe Roselló has been the driving force of Space Ibiza since its beginning. He began running clubs in Ibiza in the late 50s and the early 60s, when the first hippies arrived from the USA escaping from the Korea and Vietnam wars. Suddenly, the first bars that opened on the island were packed with people to listen to this new and exciting wave of  music - La TierraMono Desnudo and Graffiti. A group of Ibizan businessmen on the island (“crazy about music”, quoting Pepe) rejected the isolationism of Franco-era Spain – in 1973 Pachá opened, followed by Es ParadísAmnesia and Ku. In the mid-80s, Pepe was convinced that the future was in the hands of these great clubs – they were the only ones able to make it commercial, to bring live performances of bands for an eager audience.

In 1989 Pepe took over Space Ibiza in Platja d’en Bossa. The entertainment policy was a mixture of variety shows. In 1991 a young English DJ called Alex P had the idea of setting up a roof behind the bar to play for the audience more peacefully so people could enjoy their drinks on a chill-out terrace. Two years later, Brandon Block joined him and as a result of this union the Space Terrace was born.

The rest, as the saying goes, is history. In 1994, international DJs began to flock to the club: Sven Väth and Marc Spoon, indisputable kings of the techno and trance scenes, led the charge. From that moment on, big parties were organized: Up Yer Jonson with SashaRenaissance with Dave Seaman and John DigweedReact with Carl Cox, and even live performances with Erick Morillo and Reel 2 Reel, without forgetting the famous Space Ibiza Opening and Closing parties, which remain the parties that mark the beginning and the end of the season in Ibiza - check out Carl Cox’s 2014 Closing Party mix at the BBC Radio 1 website.

Space Ibiza exports its essence to all the greatest club spots in the world, bringing the magic of Ibiza to capacity crowds. In recognition of their mammoth contribution to global club culture, Space has been named ‘Best Global Club’ at the International Dance Music Awards in 2005, 2006, 2012, and again in 2013.

The Arches are thrilled to be a part of celebrating their first quarter of a century at the forefront of the electronic music scene. The lineup for this very special, one-off event will be revealed in the coming weeks – keep an eye on @ArchesGlasgow and www.facebook.com/ArchesGlasgow for announcements, and click on the image below from 10am on Saturday 1 November to book tickets.
