Club Zoom In – Cavo Paradiso
Written by Radio 44 Ceylon on July 6, 2022
Summertime screams of Ibiza, but there are so many more coastal clubs with a long history and influence on the electronic music scene.
This week on CLUB ZOOM IN we are covering iconic club in Greece, Cavo Paradiso.
Cavo Paradiso in numbers looks like this, club in Mykonos was established back in 1993, and for it’s 29 years it hosted 2423 events with over 400 artists.
Cavo Paradiso is regarded by the music industry community, its artists and clubbers worldwide as one of the most impressive music & entertainment venues on the planet.
The stunning architectural design was developed through various stages over the last three decades and it was done with total respect of its location, which s on the top of the hill of Mykonos famous Paradise Beach, so you get the feeling of being within nature and you appreciate the wild beauty this beautiful Mediteranean island and the Aegean archipelago has to offer.
It is not easy for a nightclub to incorporate the surrounding natural beauty into its design and being able to dance in this kind of environment is something that has created unforgettable memories for thousands upon thousands of visitors.
The venue recently acquired the prestigious Green Key, an award given to businesses in the tourist sector worldwide for the eco and green credentials. The iconic swimming pool modelled upon the shape of the island of Mykonos is one of Cavo Paradiso’s historic trademarks and millions of pictures have been taken from it looking towards the open sea. It is also the best location to experience the impressive firework display, especially during our famous Full Moon parties!
Partying until the early hours in the morning in order to enjoy the sunrise creeping in from the horizon is so incredibly unique that it simply must be seen in real time because words cannot describe it. Adding to this unique feeling the fact that you can also see the majestic Island of Delos, birthplace of Apollo, in front of you, enhances the unique experience even more!
In the early to mid 90’s Cavo Paradiso existed as an after-hours party venue and first line-ups included the DEF MIX crew (David Morales, Frankie Knuckles & Satoshi Tomiie), Carl Cox Louie Vega plus many others from the US house scene. Word spread over quickly within the electronic dance music circles and Cavo was on its way on becoming the super club it is today.
An incredibly diverse list of national and international dj artists have graced the Cavo Paradiso stage playing anything from House, Deep House, Techno, Trance, and everything in between!
Artists such as Boris Brejcha, Adam Beyer, Richie Hawtin, Solomun, Claptone, Loco Dice, Nicole Moudaber, Marco Carola, Nina Kraviz, Deborah de Luca, Tale Of Us, Hot since 82 played there recently.
Cavo Paradiso has achieved world fame by organising every summer one of the most intense summer artist schedules on the planet with daily back-to-back events in full season, involving the biggest international djs on the scene.
The club’s main aspiration for the future is to continue the tradition of being a venue striving for quality, diversity and the need to satisfy the thousands of clubbers who visit the club every year.
