a study of the island and its clubbing culture
Finally available! From
mid-August on the island itself and from October on the mainland,
Ibiza Virgin is a
fascinating inside account of how the party world operates from the
inside. Any seasoned Ibiza goer, club personnel - or indeed
Ibiza virgins who want a
real read - should get their hands on this book. This is better than
reality TV! The details of how colleagues relate to each other in this
book is something we can all relate too.
Behind the velvet rope, this book explains what’s really going on to
make the magic of the night happen for you. And that in
party central; where
people from all over come together to party through the hours when ‘normal’
people sleep. In Ibiza, people do not let daylight rip them apart or
shatter the dream world they have created.
Such hedonism, decadence, debauchery and the
crowd; it is not easy to top the atmosphere in the clubs, with the giant
masses of people and heart pounding beats from mega speakers and sound
systems. Clothing choices, appearances and personalities are altered to
cope with the island. People act out and dress up the way they have
always wished they could: fantasies come alive.
It is, to say the least,
Ibiza is pure magic, there is nothing, no place like it!
The book is written by Jennifer Eric, and was originally presented as
her Master’s thesis.
With twelve years of grassroots experience, from hostessing, bartending, and serving tables to managing clubs and event
promotions: when it comes to clubbing she’s just about done it all.
her research, to clearly understand the
magic of the night, she sought
out the nightlife Mecca, wanting to study the extremes in the midst of
the capital of
worldwide reputation of ‘anything goes’.
