The club, which opened in 1973, has undergone several rebuildings and enlargements and is one of the island’s best-known and modern nightclubs. Its location is near the harbour in Ibiza Town. Pacha used to be the only major Ibiza nightclub which did not close its doors during the winter season. The club’s capacity is 3,500 guests. Sarah Main is the current resident DJ, however, the Ibizan club is best known for its high profile club nights that run every night of the week through the summer. The most successful parties during 2009 included ‘F**ck me I’m Famous’ hosted by Cathy and David Guetta, ‘Subliminal’ hosted by Erick Morillo and Swedish House Mafia hosted by Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. Pacha’s own night – ‘Pure Pacha’ – has attracted guest DJ’s and acts including Basement Jaxx, Calvin Harris and Sander Kleinenberg (who was resident DJ during the 2009 season). Luciano Nicolet join the team in 2010.
Musically, Pacha is best known for specialising in house music but has five different rooms incorporating other musical styles. DJ Steve Lawler comments about Pacha in an interview with Ministry of Sound in 2006 that, “Pacha’s a great club with an amazing sound system”. Every September the club is host to the Ibiza DJ Awards. In 2007, musician James Blunt released a song called “1973” about the club, which was subsequently remixed by Pete Tong and played during his own sets in the club. As of 2008 Pete Tong has severed ties with Pacha in favour of promoting his own night, Wonderland, at Eden nightclub in San Antonio.
