Converted from a country house to a disco back in 1976, Amnesia is where the Balearic spirit was born, Bob Marley performing in ’78 and resident DJ Alfredo spinning everything from rock, disco and new wave to early Chicago house, inspiring the likes of Danny Rampling to take his style back to the UK and open the gates of a new kind of dance experience.
From that acorn has grown a mighty oak, expanding in size, adding a roof, and kitting itself out in bespoke state-of-the-art sound, designed to submit frequencies that massage the body. Having won Best Global Club three times at the Winter Music Conference as a result, and attracted loaded stars like Puff Daddy and Naomi Campbell to hear massive brands including Cocoon, Cream and more recently MTV, it’s no wonder everyone wants a piece of the action. Coming soon are four franchises which have a strict set of criteria to ensure they honour the spirit of the original club.
“My favourite club in Ibiza is definitely Amnesia, as we have our summer residency there every Monday,” reckons Sven Väth. “Artists from all corners of the art world meet here and the mixture of people is unique and encompasses the young as well as the young at heart.”
