Open your mind. Let loose and dance – not because it’s weird or brave but just because dancing makes you come alive. Come Together is a new club night being launched at Space Ibiza for those who are in love with the idea of a mass fusion of electro, techno, indie, house and every other hybrid genre – brought to you by some of the most forward thinking DJs and live performers of our time. An earthquake of sound that will make the dance floor shift under your feet every Thursday from July 8th until September 9th! Come Together is committed to uniting sounds and styles in a way that challenge’s expectations. No limits. No compromises. A rollercoaster ride of great DJs and loads of LIVE performances, all together in one superclub. A production of London’s Safehouse Management, the team that brought Carl Cox to Space on Tuesday nights for the past eight years. A vanguard mini festival with the dynamic, high quality sound and special effects you can only get at a venue like Space – one of the most iconic and cosmopolitan clubs in the world.

A rare chance to dance to legendary live acts

No other club night in Ibiza can boast the roster of live acts that Come Together promises clubbers this summer. One not to miss is Leftfield, returning to the stage after a 10 year absence for one of only a few select dates this year; the spiritual British collective Faithless, will be bringing their Soundsystem to Space for a very special show; international festival headliner Booka Shade will tap into your raw emotion with their interpretations of contemporary techno for their performance on the opening night; Harlem-bred superstar Kelis, has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry and this performance will only help confirm her electronic credentials; French-born Vitalic, known to grind unsuspecting clubbers into musical rapture, will also be on hand for a performance of pulsating beats; and Tinie Tempah, who scored a massive Number 1 earlier this year in the UK with ‘Pass Out’, will bring his blend of electro Hip-Hop to Space!

A calendar of legendary performances

The Opening Party on July 8th will lay the groundwork for Thursdays at Space with an epic live performance from Booka Shade and DJ sets from Riva Starr, Armand van Helden, Annie Mac, Fake Blood, Andy Carroll and Ibiza regular Daisy Heartbreaker. Be sure to mark July 15th in your calendar when British indie rockers Friendly Fires will be playing live in what has been coined “An Evening with Friendly Fires.” July 29th serves up a heady mix of pure energy and emotion with some of the most sophisticated techno sounds of our times mixed by Mauro Picotto’s Meganite crew – joined by German party animal Karotte. “I always feel a great energy around an audience. As a DJ I feel the responsibility to boost this positive energy to the max…,” says Mauro Picotto. The Closing Party on September 9th will be a special night with Calvin Harris, Dave Spoon, Mark Knight and Vitalic performing live.

A collective of veteran cruise planners with over fifty years of combined experience have formed Charter Cruise Consultants to develop and guide theme cruises for full ship and large group charters. The principals, who together have successfully produced twenty-five full ship music-themed cruises over the past decade, have been consulting outside parties for years and decided to formalize their collaborative efforts by forming a venture to help others realize their dream theme upon the seas.

It begins with a client’s cruise theme idea. Charter Cruise Consultants will provide a theme analysis, aid in the selection and negotiation of a cruise line, offer financial services, sales and marketing guidance, handle administrative functions such as reservations, bookkeeping and fulfillment, facilitate cruise production and logistics for guests, entertainers and equipment, plan onboard programming, scheduling and directorship, process onboard marketing and sales for future cruises, and assess profit and loss of the cruise. Three packages of services are available: Gold, Silver and Bronze. Since each theme is unique, the range of services can be customized and tailored specifically to meet the needs of the individual client.

“For almost a decade, our team has produced arguably the most successful music theme cruises in the industry: The Jazz Cruise and The Smooth Jazz Cruise. Cruise lines working with new charterers or producers of large groups have touted our collective and recommended us as consultants for years. We thought that it was time to formalize our approach and see if we can assist others who want to do theme cruises by providing a complete range of services from consulting to full participation in the theme cruise event. Making this sector of the travel industry healthy, particularly in this economic climate, is in everyone’s best interest,” said Michael Lazaroff, executive director of Charter Cruise Consultants.
