Eric Prydz announces massive residency at Ibiza’s Amnesia
Tue 19th Apr, 2011 Newsin
Just today ITMers were floored by the (northern) summer schedule for We Love… at the beloved Space nightclub in Ibiza which is set to pack the likes of Carl Craig, Aphex Twin and 2manydjs into its summer season. Now we’ve got news of more Ibiza activity to make you envious, with Swedish superstar Eric Prydz announcing his residency at Amnesia.
Organised by Amnesia and Together, Prydz’s residency will fall under the banner of ‘Tonight’ with the arch nemesis of Australian clubbers, Prydz, taking over the club every Tuesday night for a run of exclusive sets.
While it’s not clear if he’ll be utilising his much talked about new live show, EPIC, during the residency, Prydz will be joined by a rotating cast of dance music heavyweights with themed editions of ‘Tonight’ scheduled in. On the list already are big names such as Crookers, Tiga, A-Trak, Erol Alkan, Nero, Benga and even Skrillex, not to mention Annie Mac who co-programs the ‘Tonight’ series.
“Amnesia is without doubt my favourite venue to play in Ibiza,” Prydz said of his engagement at the Ibiza club. “It has everything you would expect and more from an Ibizan club. We’re really trying hard to bring something different to Amnesia this season, rather than the traditional line-ups we’ve all seen time and time again. I’m super excited and can’t wait to see you all there!”
To paraphrase that old saying, if you can’t bring the Prydz to you, you bring yourself to the Prydz. And unless our old April Fool’s Day joke comes true, that might be our only option.
