Long sets and techno heavies: Cocoon Ibiza’s 2013 line-ups

While techno might be positively taking over the White Isle, Cocoon at Amnesia still represents the sound’s strongest adventure into the Ibiza superclubs. Papa Sven and co. have just unveiled what we can expect when they return to their residency in June – a powerful, stripped-back approach that puts the focus on allowing the heavies to flex their muscles with all-night sets.

Launching on Monday 6th June, Coccoon’s enigmatic frontman will return as the leading resident Sven Vath, alongside fellow strongman Ricardo Villalobos, who’ll be splitting their duties between the main room and the terrace, and playing special “all night long” sets across several of the 17 parties across the season.

It’s a simple, yet tantalising approach that’s reflected throughout the season’s bookings. In addition to the resident’s all-night sets, there will never more than two DJs playing in each room on any given evening, meaning that the blockbuster cast of guests, including Richie Hawtin, Luciano, Dixon, Seth Troxler, Chris Liebing, Adam Beyer, Loco Dice and Marcel Dettmann among others, will really be allowed to get into the groove with extended sets. As it’s so succinctly put by Cocoon themselves: “We want to emphasise the artist’s work.”

In addition, there will be at least one live act showcased each week, with an A-class list of live techno talent playing across the club’s two rooms. Seasoned performers like Henrik Schwarz, Ame and Guy Gerber (who’ll be popping over from his new Pacha residency) will be playing alongside fresher names like Makam, Julien Bracht and Kink.

Remaining in tune with Cocoon’s love of brash marketing, the theme of the 14th Season will be ‘Into the Magic’, with jungle visuals selected to represent the party’s famed hedonism this time around. Check out the Cocoon Ibiza lineups in full below…
