Line-up

in alphabetical order

DJ Information

Amine Edge & DANCE

The French duo has conquered the scene with a spree of tracks and remixes such as 'Halfway Crooks' or the hit 'Going To Heaven With The Goodie-Goodies" featuring samples of Notorious BIG. Describing their sound as "heavy bass, fat booties and clean" they frequently reach the top of the Beatport charts. The duo definitely has a unique vibe with some 130 dates a year. Having performed at Pacha Ibiza in 2014, the two from Marseille have not set their mind on bringing Pacha Festival their 'G-House'.

Social Media

Benny Rodrigues

Having risen through the ranks like no other, the Dutch Benny Rodrigues has once again proved that Funk certainly isn't outdated. Nonetheless he never underestimates the value of tech-house and techno creating a musical bridge in his sets through which he is currently mesmerising Ibiza.

Social Media

Bingo Players

After a shocking decease of Paul in 2013, only half of former duo Binger Players remains. However, Maarten Hoogstraten definitely justifies the plural. Though well renowned as a duo for their singles 'Cry (Just A Little)' and 'Rattle', as a solo artist Maarten continues to "carry the Bingo Players flag" releasing the greatly received remix of Gorgon City's 'Here For You' and a new singles such as 'Knock You Out' and 'Nothing To Say' on his every growing label Hysteria Records.

Social Media

Cassy

Two of U.K.'s finest, Cassey and Yousef have paired up for their debut performance as back-to-back act. The two have steadily risen amongst the charts over the past years. Yousef has seen a remarkable success as his residency with Carl Cox, alongside hosting his infamous Circus nights in Liverpool and Ibiza's 'Revolution' parties. Circo Loco resident Cassy certainly complements the latter as she bears an eye for detail that is hard to surpass and a talent for reading the crowd.

Social Media

Danny Wade

Being Pacha's youngest resident to perform ever, Spanish' Danny Wade rise to fame has been incredible, not to mention short. With his first gig in Lío, Ibiza 2010, it was only three years later that Wade started touring with Pacha Recordings, whilst also performing in Milan, Palermo, Lugano and Barcelona. As his highly remarkable resume is only growing, he has already performed for the likes of Hardwell, David Guetta, Bob Sinclar, Martin Solveig and Nicky Romero, continuing to dominate through his unequivocal progressive tunes.

Dennis Ferrer

Keen on never doing the same thing twice, Dennis Ferrer is one of House' most iconic pioneers stating "as long as it's got soul and moves people, that's all that matters". With a Grammy nomination for his 'Dennis Ferrer Objektivity Mix' on Dido's 'Don't Believe in Love', and his album 'Paranoia Aftermath' on it's way, the leader and innovator is constantly pushing the boundaries. Well induced to Pacha, the man from New York has performed on every Pacha Festival with no exception, adding yet again this year to his unequivocal resume.

Social Media

DJ Sneak

BSome say, "in the beginning there was Jack" - others, Puerto Rican's DJ Sneak. The self-proclaimed 'House Gangster' has been around the block, but continues to be at the top of his game with disco-infused and jacking beats. After a legendary closing set back-to-back with Derrick, Carter and Mark Farina at Insane on Pacha Ibiza 2013, Sneak will make his debut on Pacha Festival this year bringing us his Magnetic Recordings' sound of tomorrow.

Social Media

Dosem

Even five years after the impregnable release of 'Silent Drop' , Dosem's single is still making dance floors shake and tremble. The Spanish artist has seen releases on Joris Voorn's Green Label, Danny Howells famed Dig Deeper and the renowned Suara with no sign of slowing down. Well praised by his peers, the festival annihilator and beach party connoisseur is ready to wreak havoc onto the stages of Pacha Festival.

Social Media

Franky Rizardo

"House is in a healthy place" according to Franky Rizardo. As a Dutchman with strong work ethic and not looking for mainstream success for the sake of it, he is one of the pioneers that put the deep-house sound back on the charts. The former 'King of Ace' is a highly welcome guest at Pacha and is keen on bringing his spectrum of tribal rhythms and percussion to Pacha Festival.

Social Media

HouseQuake

A simple idea which started out as an impromptu back-to-back set on a summer's eve, has now grown far beyond any of the duo's expectations. Though their schedules as solo artist are packed throughout, Roog and ErickE felt it "was essential to have a night with a few hours of pure party as duo" and Housequake was born. Ever since they have performed on virtually every big venue ranging from Mystery Land to Sensation.

Having hit US Billboard No. 1 twice with 'Always' in 1993 and 'Love Changes' 1994, Marc Kinchen a.k.a. MK has also produced songs to the likes of Celine Dion and Pitbull. However, MK truly hit mainstream putting his hands on 'Look Right Through' and remixing the euphoric 'My Head Is A Jungle'. With strong ties to Pacha as a residency at Insane and a performance on Pacha Festival 2014, we're excited to see the man from L.A. making his return this year.

Monika Kruse

Only to few, does music have such a profound effect as it has Monika Kruse. With her roots in Munich, she early on earned a residency at the legendary 'Ultraschall' in 1994. Proving to be a giant leap forward she started touring international less than a year later. Having founded her second label 'Electric Avenue Recordings' in 2003, Kruse reached #1 in the Dutch Dance Charts that same year with the iconic 'Latin lovers' on her other label 'Terminal M'. Bringing us 20-years of experience, we bear witness as to what she refers "is her first love."
