it was a lot more international at the start, now it is mainly spanish who go there, it is the biggest party amongst all the workers in shops and bars of ibiza town, figueretes, etc, etc
it was also nowhere near as busy, a couple of thousand people, but it was a community and one of the only places to see carl cox. the production was also miles better, i remember the terrace used to have little wooden shacks on it where you could just chill or whatever. it was all much more relaxed.
basically it got huge because of minimal, which when that sound became popular, cocoon was one of the main people playing it.
the last couple of years the music has been great, but there is a lot of arrogant people who consider the only party on the island and minimal this, minimal that. it made me laugh last year that these people who said they'd never go to pacha, where there dancing to luciano play records that people sander K, trentmoller, even erick morillo were also playing in pacha.
in the early days, it was just pure techno and people knew their stuff. last year luciano played age of love, age of love and nobody got it, there was hardly any reaction. i was so shocked by this i nearly bought a drink.
still an amazing party but can't really compare to how it was, like comparing circo loco at the start compared to the last few years
