“We have tried to be original, in the etymological sense of the word.

Pacha Ibiza was born in 1973 as a large country house, with several floors, white walls inside and out - probably the only discotheque in the world that is not a black box -, patios and terraces, and rooms with recesses that surrounded the track main and sought privacy and mystery.
