Yann Pissenem, the mastermind behind The Night League, a pioneering and multi-award winning nightlife and entertainment company, emerges as a luminary in the French-born landscape of the music industry. Hailing from a quaint village in the far northeast of France, Yann's formative years were shaped by parents who instilled a deep appreciation for education and fostered a spirit of creativity.

From the tender age of 10, Yann displayed an early penchant for event hosting, organizing his inaugural party with borrowed spotlights from his uncle in his bedroom. Unbeknownst to him, this early foray into his love for hosting would foreshadow an extraordinary journey in the world of entertainment.


The turning point in Yann's career occurred with his migration from Barcelona, where he threw parties for over a decade, to the enchanting shores of Ibiza.

Originally envisioning a simple beach bar, Yann's dreams evolved upon witnessing the pristine beauty of the white isle.

Ushuaïa, a beach club named after Patagonia's town, materialized as Yann's ambitious endeavor, marking the initiation of his conquest of Ibiza's vibrant party scene. Ushuaïa swiftly ascended to prominence, hosting iconic day parties with the world's leading DJs, captivating a global audience.


Not one to rest on laurels, Yann expanded his realm with the inclusion of Hï Ibiza, a venue resurrected from the legendary Space nightclub. The meticulous renovation retained the venue's heritage while integrating state-of-the-art design elements, securing Hï Ibiza the title of DJ Mag's World's Best Club in 2018, 2022, and 2023!

Juggling the demanding schedule of managing both Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza, Yann orchestrates over 280 events and collaborates with more than 2,000 artists annually, with both venues fostering 7 days a week summer programmes.

Now The Night League is a global powerhouse within the nightlife industry, overseeing not only Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza, but the newly opened Playa Soleil, which is also just a stone throw away from his two mega clubs, along with renowned parties ANTS, Palmarama, and Children of The 80’s.

Yann's meticulous attention to detail and unwavering commitment to delivering unparalleled customer experiences has set a new standard in nightclub design around the world.

His influence also extends beyond Ibiza, with The Night League engaging in collaborative ventures with Apple Music and exploring opportunities in Asia, the Middle East, and America.

Yann Pissenem's narrative stands as a role model to overcoming challenges through passion, ingenuity, creativity, and relentless hard work. From the humble setting of a broken-down car on the docks of Ibiza to becoming the creative force steering two of the world's premier nightclubs, Yann's journey serves as an inspirational tale of resilience and triumph in the ever-evolving realm of entertainment.
