Often credited as the most hardcore of the opening parties, Amnesia heralds its first klaxon of the season like a battle cry, calling out to all the foot soldiers who’ve found themselves with nowhere to stomp all winter. Clubbing troopers reply in kind, marching towards the club with the quiet but steely determination of your nan trying to change the TV channel. When they arrive, action unfolds in the form of an assault on the ears, this year provided by Adam Beyer, Enrico Anguiliano and Matador in the main room, and Hector Couto, Luciano, and the Martinez Brothers on the terrace. Already the biggest line-up the opening fiesta has boasted in years, more names are still to be added so expect to be positively swimming in talent by the time 11th May swings round.
Amnesia Ibiza celebrates its 45th anniversary this summer, which means this opening party really has something to prove. Don your civvies and get stuck in, and if you’re not the last person on the dance floor come 7am, you should be thoroughly ashamed.
