Pete Tong has always championed reinvention and regeneration in Ibiza, but 2013 marks the most ambitious change yet, as Pete begins a new chapter with the launch of Le Grand Bazaar at Ushuaïa.
Full line-ups will be announced soon, but so far, Pete's revealed he'll be joined by the likes of Hot Natured (debut Ibiza live performance), Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox and many more, bringing together global superstars with the finest underground talent - a hallmark of all of Pete's Ibizan endeavours.
More than a club night, the weekly Friday event will bring daytime clubbing back to the island, while offering some of the best nocturnal parties to be found anywhere in the world. Launching on 5 July and continuing until 30 August, Le Grand Bazaar will run from early afternoon to midnight. The party will begin under the sun in Ushuaïa's unique outdoor space at lunchtime and will feature electronic music's freshest underground stars. Each week, to mark the crossover between daytime and night-time Pete will record a very special Le Grand Bazaar version of his international All Gone Pete Tong radio show which will be broadcast across America on Clear Channel's Evolution Radio and around the world via his numerous international partnerships, giving his global listeners a unique taste of the Le Grand Bazaar and Ushuaïa experience.
Pete Tong said "When I started thinking about the Le Grand Bazaar concept it was inspired by Ushuaia and the possibilities the venue offered. I'm very excited to be working with the Ushuaia team, I think they have genuinely changed the face of the island and have offered something new. I'm looking forward to making Fridays completely unique, bringing daytime clubbing back to the island with an incredible lineup of underground and global names, and also to dreaming up more crazy and inspiring events with Ushuaia this summer and beyond."
All artwork for Le Grand Bazaar is by leading British artist, Damien Hirst. Matt Twist has used Hirst's artwork to design unique illustrations for the event, the bold look and colour palettes of which match the vibrant ethos of what will be this season's premier Ibiza party.
Further details on Le Grand Bazaar will be announced soon.
