If we were to tell you that you can still find quality underground parties in unique locations, with ticket and bar prices that aren't extortionate - well then you'd naturally want to know all about it, wouldn't you?
In 2008, 'As One' hosted a one off party called Wildlife on One which united some of the strongest underground promoters and DJs you can find, all with strong identities and a long history within Europe’s dance music industry. It was a day and night mini electronic music festival in the hills of Ibiza at Gala Night, one of the island's most curious venues (mainly because it has become known as an abandoned zoo, even though it never was).
Freak 'n' Chic, Wiggle, Let It Play, Superfreq, Mulletover, and Bes Ibiza united to bring back some of the love and freedom Ibiza is renowned for, yet has lacked in a testing and somewhat overbearing 2008 season. It was also the first time these promoters had worked together and by fusing their knowledge, experiences and determination they pulled off an event that was long overdue not just at an industry level but also for people planning to come and party for the day in the sunshine.
This year, 'AS ONE' will return to the hills of Benimussa in Ibiza every Monday to unite some of the most loved and strongest underground promoters from Europe and beyond. The party starts mid afternoon at 4pm offering visitors a pool to party in and three uniquely designed outdoor arenas as well as many chill out areas where you can comfortably sit back and watch the day unfold. Of course the party continues inside past midnight until 4am with a strong cast of underground supremos with one act from each promotion taking to the decks.
