Who Sven's partying with at Cocoon Heroes
Wed 4th May, 2011 Newsin
The fast-approaching season in Ibiza is really starting to take shape, with recent announcements for We Love…Space, Carl Cox: The Revolution Continues and Pete Tong’s new outing at Pacha to name but a few. One of the island’s greatest success stories is undoubtedly Cocoon, which celebrates its twelfth year of Ibiza blowouts in 2011.
Led by the inexhaustible Sven Vath, the techno flagship will take over Mondays at Amnesia from 13 June to 26 September under the banner of ‘Cocoon Heroes’. While the theme requires less outlandish dress-ups from Sven and his friends compared to past seasons, the ringmaster’s knack for recruiting some fine talent remains undiminished.
Many of the familiar banner names are back – with Ricardo Villalobos, Loco Dice and Richie Hawtin making regular appearances – but there’s more to the picture. Revered selectors like DJ Koze and Carl Craig are welcome additions, while toast-of-2010 Seth Troxler, young Detroit impresario Kyle Hall and Russian house star Nina Kraviz keep things varied. Scroll to after the video for a list.
