On Monday, September 18, the heartbeat of Ibiza's glorious past throbs once again as Funky Aura descends upon Akasha Ibiza for their penultimate party of the summer.

From 11pm through to 5am, you’ll be treated to the best track selections from island favorites David Morales and Willie Graff.

Before we delve into the lineup for the night, if you’re not one of the lucky ones who remembers Aura, let us fill you in.

Back around 2010, everyone who was anyone on the island flocked to a quaint discoteca located on the San Joan road. Aura came alive on Friday nights when it was home to Dantz, a weekly bash orchestrated by three Ibiza long-time Ibiza residents: Hayden Trethewy, the club's manager; Danny Rose, the promotor; and the unforgettable Antz, an iconic Ibiza DJ whose legacy outshines his brief time on earth.

Free to enter, no guestlist, no VIP. It was a piece of Ibiza history that was once a haven for celebs such as James Blunt, Charlotte Tilbury, and Cara Delevingne.

At the beginning of the 2023 season, a decade after its doors sadly closed, the very essence of this iconic spot was reignited at none other than Akasha Ibiza.

Helmed by the visionary trio - Hayden Trethewey, Sunny Ramzan (Pikes), and Vaughan (Pacha Ibiza’s Funky Room) - this revival is more than just a party. It's a tribute to Ibiza's raw, uncommercialized spirit that has been somewhat overshadowed by commercialism and VIP in recent years.

Akasha Ibiza, emerging from significant renovations to Las Dalias in 2021, represents a unique fusion of community spirit and musical magnetism. The club champions a minimalist aesthetic with cutting-edge lighting and visuals, all underscored by an extraordinary sound system crafted using Fibonacci's auric maths and sacred geometry principles.

Not just a summer hotspot, Akasha remains open throughout the winter, emphasizing its dedication to quality over quantity, catering to year-round residents as well as summer visitors.

The aura (pun intended!) of Akasha will be infused with vibrant, eclectic, and wild Ibizan souls who truly define the island's essence.

For those who crave that genuine Ibiza vibe, the kind that's rooted in creativity, bohemia, and a touch of hedonism, Funky Aura Ibiza promises to be a feast for the senses.

Join us in celebrating the essence of Ibiza that once was, and with events like Funky Aura, will always be. Akasha awaits with open arms and a rhythm that's truly irresistible.
