Richie Hawtin returns to Ibiza this summer for season three of his award-winning club concept ENTER. Since landing on Ibiza in 2012, ENTER. has firmly established itself as Ibiza’s leading club experience, winning the accolade of Best Ibiza Night at the 2012 and 2013 Ibiza DJ Awards. Key to ENTER.’s success is that it brings together all of Hawtin’s personal principles of pleasure; music, technology, Japanese sake, art, entertainment and design. Each and every element of the night is carefully planned, considered and brought to life by Hawtin himself and it’s this personal touch and winning formula that makes the ENTER. experience so completely unique.

Taking place every Thursday from July 3rd to October 2nd, ENTER. will showcase an exceptional collection of acts at the forefront of today’s electronic music scene, including some artists never-before-seen in Ibiza. With Hawtin curating all four rooms of music built on the principles of music, sake, technology and experience, ENTER. will welcome back familiar faces like Sven Väth, Luciano, Dubfire, Paco Osuna, Maya Jane Coles, Nina Kraviz, Recondite, Gaiser and Matador as well as presenting debut performances from Apollonia, Artefakt, Ateq, Blond:ish, Chris Liebing, Deepbass, Deepchord, Dixon, DJ Tennis, Fabio Florido, Guti, Jackmaster, Ida Engberg, Joran Van Pol, JPLS, Julian Perez, Mano Le Tough, Ness, Petar Dundov, Pye Corner Audio and Voices From The Lake.

ENTER.Sake sets the scene for each event with headlining guests performing an exclusive early show alongside resident DJs Hito, Bella Sarris and Fabio Florido. This year the residents will be joined across the 14 weeks by acts including Claude VonStroke, Dixon, Dubfire, Guy Gerber, Maceo Plex, Maya Jane Coles, Nina Kraviz, Richie Hawtin, tINI and Tale Of Us. As well as offering music lovers a very rare opportunity to see such established artists perform in a small room environment on Ibiza, ENTER.Sake also opens ears to new experiences with resident DJ Hito playing an eclectic fusion of electronic music from a Japanese perspective. Guests at the Sake bar can indulge in premium Japanese Sake, spirits and beers as well as a selection of Sake & Shochu cocktails, specially created for the ENTER. Sake room by the 41° cocktail bar in Barcelona. These include the new Geisha and Mochi cocktails, alongside 2013 favourites Minus and Microdot.

ENTER. continues it’s collaboration with Kyoto, Japan based Sookuu for their exclusive ENTER.Sookuu “Black”, “Silver” & “Gold” Sake.  In addition, the ENTER.Sake family expands this year with two new exclusive Sake’s from Japan’s legendary Dassai Brewing company, including an eagerly anticipated “Sparkling” Sake.

Hawtin will play each and every week in the main room, joined by M-NUS artists, friends and collaborators, along with some very special guests. Sven Väth will perform alongside Richie Hawtin at ENTER. on 21st August, in what will be his only Ibiza show outside of his own residency on the island. Hawtin will join Väth at Cocoon the same week, continuing the groundbreaking swap concept first introduced by ENTER. Luciano will also return this year, performing back to back with Richie on 17th July in what is sure to be an electrifying show. Paco Osuna continues his residency with 4 scheduled dates across the season and Dubfire will step up for several appearances, including a special C2C (click to click) performance with both artists collaborating together to create unique tracks throughout the session. Across the 14 weeks, guests will also be treated to performances from Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, Christian Smith, Fabio Florido, Gaiser, Hobo, Joran Van Pol, Julian Jeweil, Marc Houle,  Marcel Dettmann, Matador and Recondite.

The famed ENTER.Terrace will play host to some very special all night long DJ sessions this year. First up, winner of the Resident Advisor Top DJ Poll 2013 and Innervisions label head, Dixon, will play an exclusive all night long set at ENTER., taking over the terrace on 28th August in what is sure to be one of the most hotly-tipped dates of the season. Apollonia will also step up for a terrace takeover with Parisian trio Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom and Shonky bringing their trademark groove-laden house sounds to the floor. Ibiza’s leading lady tINI will make a special appearance on July 24 th, in a rare appearance outside of her own Ibiza residency.

ENTER.Mind succeeded in introducing Ibiza to a whole new sound in 2013, bringing new artists to Ibiza for the very first time, with the rise of Recondite on the island coming through this room. Featuring the more hypnotic sound of techno, the cavernous ENTER.Mind is a visual and aural feast for the senses, presenting the most innovative acts of the moment. Making their ENTER.Mind debut this year are Petar Dundov and Voices From The Lake. Deepchord will also make their first ever Ibiza appearance, playing live alongside JPLS. Also performing live at ENTER.Mind this year are Artefakt, Daniel Miller, Luke Hess, Markus Guentner, Ness, Pye Corner Audio, Recondite, Seth Hodder, TM404 and Vince Watson alongside resident Matthew Hawtin.

ENTER.CNTRL. Supported by Red Bull
ENTER.CNTRL, an interactive music installation, will continue the values set by Hawtin's educational touring concept CNTRL which took young North American colleges by storm in 2012.  CNTRL will transform the party experience on Space’s open-air roof terrace, by placing the music directly in hands of partygoers from around the world. This large circular instrument contains six unique slices, each allowing anyone to take over and manipulate one aspect of the mix. The area will also feature a section to test the Subpac - a tactile sound device that adds onto your normal headphone or speaker listening experience of music, adding lower frequencies to the music and reconnecting you to a full spectrum sound experience, which neatly ties into the ENTER. ethos of MUSIC & EXPERIENCE. The CNTRL surface is designed by Ean Golden and DJ TechTools, who are the worlds leading experts on DJ technology and music hardware and the area is supported by Red Bull.
