The biggest club night of the summer, possibly the year, finished earlier this week at Privilege in Ibiza. 10,000 ravers crammed inside the world’s largest club to catch the first of just two exclusive Carl Cox dates scheduled for this summer on the island. The result? A 10-hour mega rave to end all raves and a night that those in attendance will never forget. We caught up with a few Coxy diehards to find out what they thought of the king's return.

I love Carl Cox; that’s why I’ve come here today. Last year I was out here for a week and I went to Carl Cox Revolution four times. A good proportion of my holiday was spent at Space! I watched him play after Nicole Moudaber. I was completely sober, but I felt like I was on ecstasy. The journey, the progression… That night there was no better place to be than the Space Discoteca. Obviously I’m sad that Space has gone, but I’m really going to make the most of the two dates Carl has here at Privilege; I’m coming to both. This venue is something else entirely: it’s crazy. We’ve been here from start to finish. What I’ve seen throughout the night has literally blown my mind.

I’m here because I’ve just moved in with my new housemates and they were saying this is going to be one of the biggest nights ever. I love Carl Cox. I’ve watched loads of his Facebook videos leading up to the event – researching! I’m also excited to see Eats Everything. I’ve seen him play so many times. He was the DJ I started listening to when I first got into house music. His track ‘Dancing (Again!)’ is my tune for life; I love that track so much. I saw him at Bestival last year and he was so much fun. I really like his music. The fact that Eats is on the line-up as well seems like a smart booking.
