Cream Opening Party at Amnesia



Clubbing royalty returned to the peak of it’s game Thursday night as arguably one of the most impressive opening parties grasped the White Isle spotlight once again. Celebrating it’s 20th anniversary in Ibiza, Cream at Amnesia was always expected to steal the headlines this week however with residents like Calvin Harris and Paul Van Dyk on the decks, the venue was as to be expected absolutely jumping by the time we arrive.

With people queuing in there thousands waiting in eager anticipation to enter this world famous super club, the Amnesia atmosphere was at a new high for this season. Revellers came from all corners of the globe to celebrate an historic night of house, trance and techno all under one roof. Having been to Cream once before last year, I knew I was in for the time of my life.


With the main room and the terrace stacked to the rafters with endless DJ’ing talent, clubbing revellers were to be spoilt for choice. The energy in the main room remained incredible throughout the night with Paul Van Dyk taking a huge portion of the credit for this. The Cream resident mirrored the aesthetically pleasing image of the green laser lights with some explosive trance mixes vibrating the entire room.

It wasn’t only Paul Van Dyk making wonderful waves of music at this spectacular opening though. Several breakthrough acts left their stamp mark creating many Ibiza memories for the Amnesia faithful. Simon Patterson was one of the many standout performances of the night. The house hero was a wizard on the decks ensuring all of the party goers were on their feet enjoying every single second of their Cream opening experience. Sean Hughes was another of many highlights at Cream wetting the appetite of many techno admirers appetites with some belting mixes sending everyone into a controlled fist pumping frenzy. Aly & Fila, Burns and Bryan Kearney also made a positive addition and impact on a night that no Ibiza addict will forget in a hurry anytime soon.


However, many Cream fanatics attended the event for one reason – Calvin Harris. The Scottish DJ and producer had ravers from all four corner of the globe flooding into the terrace before his set just prior to 3am. Under Control echoed much to the joy of everyone on the dance floor as the headliner opened his set. The atmosphere then soared onto another platform as Harris swept through some of his famous commercial dance records including Bounce, I Feel So Close and Need Your Love. Such mind blowing beats were followed by Sweet Nothing with Florence Welch and Hideaway with Keisza which only continued to lift the energy in the room.

With revellers lost in the moment perched on top of each others shoulders, the night gradually drew to a close with party streamers bursting from the ceiling. This created a sensational buzz for everyone involved and unlike the drinks, this experience was priceless.

Just like Calvin Harris’ song, Cream needs your love this summer.
