The "most opulent party in Ibiza", Pure Pacha, will launch its 18 week stint with the opening on May 30th, 2008. Pete Tong will no longer be the frontman for the events, however, many top names have stepped up to make a great season of parties.

This Summer's residents are Sander Kleinenberg and Axwell. Says Sander about the gig, "Pacha is a club with such a legacy and historically, Friday is their busiest evening. It's a great showroom to be DJ’ing in a place where people come to celebrate. I'm very honoured."

Axwell will bring along two other members of the Swedish House Mafia, Steve Angello & Sebastien Ingrosso. Eric Prydz, the fourth member of the SHM, was not mentioned in the line-up. Other monthly residents include Basement Jaxx, Faithless and Fedde Le Grand. Paul Oakenfold and Trentemoller have also confirmed guest spots.
