It’s the clubbing resurgence everyone is talking about. Privilege – the biggest nightclub in the world – and its return to the big time. But wait. Let’s not get carried away just yet. After two huge sell-out parties earlier this month, headlined by the legendary Carl Cox, the smart question on everyone’s lips last Tuesday night was whether or not the Privilege could sustain the momentum. It’s all fine and dandy being the talk of the town for a few weeks, but one of the fundamentals of any great Ibizan nightclub is consistency. You have to keep knocking out amazing events week after week, for the entire summer, fostering a stable, coherent message that ravers everywhere can understand.
