Afrojack, one of the world’s most prominent DJs and producers, is about to set off on the largest European summer tour in his career. For over two months, Afrojack will cross almost every border in Europe to play the continent’s most prestigious festivals and venues starting on the sixth of July. Afrojack will visit nineteen different countries in less than three months to play at an imposing total of over forty shows including Tomorrowland (Belgium), Creamfields (England), Balaton Sound (Hungary) and Global Gathering (England and Ukraine).
Besides playing at Europe’s most anticipated summer events, Afrojack adds several of his own ‘Jacked’ events to his hectic schedule. The ‘Jacked’ events at Ibiza’s legendary club Amnesia, BCM Mallorca and a ‘Jacked’ take-over during ‘F*** Me I’m Famous’ at Pacha Ibiza – hosted by world’s #1 DJ David Guetta – are assured highlights of Afrojack’s extensive summer tour.
Since the foundation of Afrojack’s ‘Jacked’ in July 2011, the party concept has expanded to one of world’s most popular club nights. R3hab, Shermanology, Apster and Bobby Burns, who all form a part of Afrojack’s valued imprint Wall Recordings, will join Afrojack during the upcoming ‘Jacked’ events and select dates of the tour.
Afrojack returns to Europe right after his first own ‘Jacked’ tour in North America. The #7 of DJ Mag’s Top 100 hosted over 40 of his infamous ‘Jacked’ parties in cities like Miami, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York and Atlantic City. In addition to his own tour dates, Afrojack delivered mind-blowing performances at multiple major American festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, Electric Daisy Carnival New York and Coachella.
Soon after this summer tour, Afrojack will release his long awaited album. Afrojack produced the album earlier this year during his stay in Los Angeles and will include collaborations with a number of world known artists. Afrojack will surely preview tracks of this forthcoming album during his shows in the next months.

As the longest running UK club night on the island, taking over Thursday nights, Cream Ibiza brings together the world’s top DJs and thousands of clubbers to the award winning ‘World’s Best Club’ Amnesia. With mammoth weekly parties that will see Above & Beyond joined by the likes of Paul van Dyk, Eddie Halliwell, Calvin Harris, Sander van Doorn, Laidback Luke, and Example at the club this summer.
Described by DJ Mag as “the biggest electronic DJing and production collective the UK has ever produced,” Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamaki AKA Above & Beyond made an obvious choice for this year’s installment of the Cream compilation series.
Producers, songwriters, DJ’s and owners of the renowned Anjunabeats label, Above & Beyond have remained down-to-earth and as determined as ever despite the numerous accolades, remixing greats like Madonna and Radiohead and selling out shows from Bombay to Brixton Academy. 2011 saw the release of their second studio album Group Therapy. Described by Mixmag as “the artist album of the year”, it topped the dance charts in both the UK and USA.
Now they are set to perform at Cream Ibiza this summer, headlining six dates through June to September. Whether you’re heading over to the White Isle or not, Above & Beyond’s Cream Ibiza mix is essential listening for the summer.
This year’s Cream Ibiza tracklist perfectly reflects the ethos of Above & Beyond, taking in their biggest tried and tested tunes, fan favourites and exclusive new tracks – all guaranteed main room Ibiza material. Alongside hot tracks from the likes of Cosmic Gate, Dirty South, Kyau & Albert and Depeche Mode (Eric Prydz Remix) Cream Ibiza also features exclusive new mixes of Above & Beyond’s Stealing Time (from the critically acclaimed debut album Tri-State) and On My Way To Heaven, plus brand new remixes of Tranquillity Base (aka Above & Beyond) Razorfish by Jerome Isma-Ae and of the Above & Beyond and Andy Moor classic “Air For Life” by Norin & Rad.
Ben Santiago is one of the White Isle’s most prolific DJs. Since moving to Ibiza seven years ago he has held a number of enviable residencies and played for the biggest brands in the industry, including; Café del Mar, Cream, Pacha, Base Bar, El Divino, Ibiza Rocks, Cocoon, Amnesia, Es Vive, Manumission, and Hed Kandi – who have appointed him Ibiza resident for the third year running at their parties at Es Paradis in 2012. He is also an official A&R scout for Hed Kandi / Ministry of Sound, helping compile the music for their world famous compilations.
Internationally, Ben is musical director for Berlin Fashion Week and spins at fashion shows and private soirées for Dolce & Gabbana throughout Europe and Asia alongside saxophonist (and fiancée) Lovely Laura. The pair are also signed to Storm models and perform all over the world at exclusive events for A-list clients such as supermodel Eva Herzigova and Pink Floyd.
Appreciated for his truly Balearic approach (as showcased on his weekly Ministry Of Sound radio show and guest mix on Hed Kandi’s Beach House 2011), Ben is just as passionate spinning eclectic sets at villa and beach parties or on catwalks and yachts as he is delivering straight up house tunes in a club. His success is based on a simple premise: “Whatever the genre, if a track is going to connect with the audience then I’ll play it…”.
The magic of the White Island, the effect of the sun and the stars, the unique location in the Mediterranean Sea and the isle’s infamous stories – this is what has always made Ibiza so exceptionally attractive. Long before the Spanish and the British launched the European Acid and House movement, Ibiza had already radiated this very special magic.
For this reason and more besides, Sven Väth decided 13 years ago that Cocoon would be part of this; the idea and the music Cocoon stands for are meant to be created for this magical place, which is meanwhile the epicentre of the international club scene, year after year. Cocoon is Ibiza and Ibiza is Cocoon.
The magic, the electrifying atmosphere, the heat of the night – this is, in our dynamic times, one of the few possibilities to stop the clock, to feel the universe, to forget the monotony of everyday life and to leave it all behind. It’s the power of the island and the “spirit of cocoon” in the year 2012 – that year when we step into the age of Aquarius, it’s the turn of eras, it is spirituality and transcendence. The age of Aquarius is the era of consciousness, the era of experience.
Let us take you into the year of the magic, to the island of magic and dive into the magical night.
Cocoon Heroes Ibiza- every Monday at Amnesia – June 11th – September 24th
