One of our favourite Ibiza gigs of 2018 was when Above & Beyond played at Hï Ibiza. So when it was announced that they would be playing alongside Armin Van Buuren at Ushuaïa in July this summer, we were all over it!
On Friday 12 July, on a very hot peak summer evening, we headed from San Antonio over to playa d’en Bossa just in time for Above & Beyond’s 7pm start set time. It was one of the few occasions we’ve been in Ushuaïa before the sun has set, and looking around the venue in daylight, it is clear to see what a beautiful setting and hotel it truly is.
Above & Beyond’s 2 hour set built well, the first hour of which was a more chilled Anjunadeep type vibe, brilliant deep house, combined with some lush vocals and melodies. The second half of their set, they picked up the pace, with some faster trance, and more driving energetic Anjunabeats tracks, such as their classic “Sun & Moon” below;
Afterwards, Armin Van Buuren took over, and with the Ushuaïa crowd well and truly ready for some big tracks, Armin provided! His set was a fast paced EDM style trance set;
Ushuaïa’s production, stage set up, lights, performers, air cannons and fireworks provided the back drop to a brilliant gig.
