As anyone with an Instagram account knows, summer travel has become glitzier, more globalized and just as much about a good party as it is a good photo. Ibiza has long been known as one of the centres of club life, and no one knows this more than Martin Solveig, a multiplatinum French DJ, producer and songwriter whose hits have become anthems of the famed Spanish island and beyond. “Communicating with people through my music in festivals and clubs is an exhilarating thing to do and gives me inspiration and energy,” he says. “There’s something about music and club life in Ibiza that is really specific and special.”
Solveig’s collaborations with everyone from Madonna to Dragonette have enshrined him in the hall of electronic dance music fame and this summer, he’s hit the charts again with My Love, a song that he’ll no doubt rock on tour through the rest of August.
Here, he shares his essentials to get a great party started.
