The Ark Festival set sail on its maiden voyage last week, taking 4,000 people from Barcelona to Marseilles to Ibiza and back on an ocean liner carrying some of the best DJ talent around.
Elrow held things down on a windswept top deck on day one with a Patrick Topping and Richy Ahmed back-to-back, while Sven Väth went in hard in the indoor Reef room. Elsewhere across the weekend Masters At Work, Roger Sanchez and Felix da Housecat pulled out the house classics in The Deep, (an ice-rink converted into a club), Boys Noize and 2ManyDJs pulled out the full throttle electro and Peggy Gou and Gerd Janson rattled out the grooves.
