Some say Sunday is a day of rest, but not in Ibiza!  It was day of the infamous Vagabundos party at Pacha.

We met up with our new friends from L.A. for the party.

This is one of my favorite parties because lots of people dress up in the vagabond theme with top hats, etc. Here are Andres and I doing our best impression of the painting behind us.

The music was on point and the production was well done.

Here is a shot of Luciano and Mirko Loco going back to back.

The next day, Monday is always one of the best days in Ibiza, with the infamous Circo Loco party at DC-10 during the day, and the Cocoon Heroes closing at Amnesia at night.

Circo Loco was amazing as expected, with an awesome vibe.

Here is Soul Brothers (Soul Clap vs Martinez Brothers) in action.

We met an awesome French couple and met up with Amanda and Ben from London too.

Circo Loco is definitely one of my favorite parties and you never know what crazies you are going to run into.

Here is one of the videos I took there.

When that party ended, it was back to the hotel room to charge phones and cameras, change clothes then off to Cocoon Heroes Closing party with Ricardo Villalobos and Loco Dice!

This is where we really got lucky.  I knew my friends Jamie and Marisela were up in VIP, but we didn’t have bands to get in. Low and behold the entrance to VIP which is normally guarded by a burly security guard was unwatched so we walked right in and found our friends! My camera and phone died pretty fast so we didn’t get a ton of pics but man did we have a good crew.

Amnesia was super packed so it was great that we ended up in VIP where we could move.

I only got a quick video of an aerialist before my camera battery died, but you can see how packed it was.

After this ended we went home and slept for a bit, but then made it to the Cocoon Heroes after party on the beach with Sven Vath spinning. As my friend Scotty says, “What a Scene!”

What a great day, but there was even more good music to come!  But that will be in the next article 🙂
