In terms of pure, hedonistic, feel-good partying, there is nothing that quite compares to dancing with friends with the sun on your face and the sand between your toes. From the golden beaches of Bali, Goa or the Balearic, this is Beachclubbing; a heady, organic soundtrack of the very finest house music for a dedicatedly different outdoor clubbing experience.
Beachclubbing is a more sociable affair - the feeling of clubbing together and doing something differently is consistent with the origins of acid house and Balearic club culture. People of a similar mindset came together and bonded over a shared experience that first created a community but then ultimately created the most powerful or dominant movement in youth culture since the invention of rock n' roll. Everyone loves to club outside, it can be more exotic, it's certainly more natural and it's all about doing things a little differently; something you’re not generally allowed to do most of the time.
Defected has always been known for its excursions into outdoor party territory; from the classic WMC Miami Pool Parties of the mid to late-00s to our festival dates at Sunburn in Goa, ZoukOut in Singapore and Junction Festival in Bali to out and out beachclubbing at Sasha Beach in Portugal and Bloomingdale in the Netherlands. Now our weekly Defected In The House event at Ushuaia Beach Hotel in Ibiza - possibly the ultimate incarnation of the beach club venue on the entire planet allows us to take ownership of the term Beachclubbing similarly to how we began a trend for Urban House in 2008.
Defected has a proven tradition / historic / current participation in beach or outdoor clubbing and previously we have set trends and taken ownership over other genre defining areas
