In 1970, the family decided to end the country life and sold the property to a widow of aristocratic origin. This is where the recent history of our disco begins. In Ibiza one begins to enjoy an unthinkable freedom in the rest of Spain and the house that will soon become Amnesia Ibiza becomes a meeting point for idealists of the counterculture. The hippie spirit takes over the island.
In the middle of the 70’s Antonio Escohotado enters the scene, a young man from Madrid who travels to Ibiza to start a new life. One fine day in May '76, Antonio signed a rental contract with the owner of the house for 20,000 pesetas a month. Now all that is missing is to baptize the disco... The workshop of forgetfulness will be the first name by which he chose, wanting to reflect the evasion of reality and the problems that people look for when they go out at night. The next day he realized that one word was enough to express his idea: AMNESIA. Thus, the night club of the Ibicencan night was born.
After almost two decades of changes in ownership and moments of splendour followed by unexpected closures; In the early 90's Amnesia experienced its most momentous change, passing into the hands of the current owner. Thus begins the most fruitful time of the temple of sound.
The Ibizan night begins to reach planetary fame and the growth of Amnesia is unstoppable. Four bars are passed to the current 16, 16 employees to more than 200 and the Amnesia brand grows like foam worldwide. The best DJs on the international scene have played in Amnesia’s booth, Sven Väth, Chase & Status, Marco Carola, Carl Cox, Paul Van Dyk, Skrillex and Diplo are some of the mythical names that are common in the Amnesia booth. The best concerts and live performances have also taken place in his stage, such as Underworld, Public Enemy, Tinie Tempah, Snoop Dogg, 50 cent and a long etcetera.
It is also an endless list of personalities, idols and celebrities who meet each summer at the nightclub: Naomi Campbell, Puff Daddy, Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, Mick Jagger, Bono, Shakira, Messi, Ronaldo, Elle Mcpherson, Elsa Pataky, Valentino Rossi, Calvin Klein or Leonardo di Caprio, are just some of the names that have partied at the club.
As a result of which in 2007 Amnesia received the award for the best club in the world awarded by the prestigious International Dance Music Awards, organized by the Winter Music Conference of Miami; has not stopped receiving awards consolidating it as one of the best clubs in the world that has always managed to stay on the crest of the wave. Its walls have hosted many mythical festivals as Matinee or La Troya, undoubted symbols of the Ibiza nights.
Currently Amnesia programs from Monday to Saturday accommodating all musical tastes and types of public.
