Whether you consider 22 year-old Avicii the cherubic blue-eyed golden boy of 21st century house or a sinister aryan replicant desecrating the last two decades of dance, there's no escaping his huge transatlantic influence. With hundreds of wannabe producers, and plenty more established ones, copying his winning sonic formula of gigantic power chords, he's tapped into a popularist vein that's gushing like a Texan oil well.
Ibiza's new chichi hangout for those with cash to splash, Ushuaïa has also morphed from its days as a beach bar holding free events into a rare open-air venue attracting the biggest names. Launching on July 15, ‘Avicii At Ushuaïa’ hits the pool club every Sunday with big name guests aplenty until the end of August.
Ticket are available now from the Ushuaïa site.
