The series of events held by Cocoon on the notorious party island Ibiza since 1999 goes by the name Cocoon Ibiza. Club Amnesia is the exquisite location where the parties are held and is one of the most beautiful and most famous clubs on Ibiza. From 2006 until 2010, for three uninterrupted years, Amnesia has been awarded the prestigious "Best Global Club" award. The club holds a capacity of more than 5000 visitors and has survived many memorable summers since 1976. From June to September, Cocoon hosts the Monday night with Sven Väth leading the line-up of many international artists such as Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Loco Dice and Marco Carola. The clubbing experience is supported by a slogan, which changes every year.
Sven Väth has his fans in the most important clubs across the globe as well as at the world's biggest festivals, he toured South America and played in the Thai jungle, and he is cultural ambassador of the German Goethe Institute. On the dance floor, Sven unites thirty-five-year-olds with fifteen-year-olds. The reader's polls of the big magazines regularly see him in top ranks in every important category, and his tours lead him to more than seventy cities and numerous festivals on four continents, practically the whole year through. However, besides his own career, the advancement of electronic music as such is of high importance to Sven.
Cocoon Recordings has been founded in the year 2000 as a part of the Cocoon Music Event GmbH. Sven Väth has initiated Cocoon Recordings in order to complete the Cocoon platform as a supporting tool for young artists in Electronic Music. The label philosophy is as simple as demanding: helping young producers and DJs to release their music without depending on Major Label structures. The releases can mainly be assigned to the genres Techno and House.
