40 Strong Years & Counting For Pacha Ibiza

 photo Pacha40years_zps7da3f668.jpg
All of us EDM fans dream of a trip to Ibiza. And for those of you that have been lucky enough to make the trip, I can’t help but envy you. Ibiza is of course a place where dance music rules. It really wouldn’t be a stretch to call it the home and center of EDM. And nothing says Ibiza, quite like Pacha. Pacha is one of the most famous, if not the most famous, clubs in the world. And here they are, 40 years after opening, celebrating a monumental anniversary. Founded in 1973 by Ricardo and Piti Urgell, Pacha was nothing more than a converted farmhouse and an outlandish idea. No one expected much out of it. Despite overwhelming pessimism, Pacha not only stayed in business, but it became a hippie’s paradise. Police tried to stop the fun for several years, but the club lived on.

From 750 guests in a farm, Pacha has now grown to capacity of 3,000 EDM fanatics and 5 rooms boasting unquestionably the world’s best Djs. Not only has it grown to unimaginable heights in its 40 years of existence, but Pacha has also established locations in Brazil, the United States, Russia, Germany, England, Egypt and Portugal.

It wouldn’t be right to not have a big time celebration for a club that exemplifies the growth of music over the last 40 years. To commemorate the anniversary, Pacha is releasing an album gathering all the big time club tracks over their reign of Ibiza from 1973 to 2013. I will list the track list of the 77 track 4 CD collection (a longtime EDM fan’s dream CD in my opinion) below. Enjoy the journey, hold up your glass, and cheers to hope of another 40 years of success and incredible times at Pacha Ibiza.
