Dave Swindells' 'Ibiza '89' Book Two-Steps Through the Island's History

British photographer Dave Swindells has just presented the third edition of his classic Ibiza ‘89 book in collaboration with IDEA Books, taking readers back in time as it explores the most iconic clubs and bars across the white island.

It’s no secret that the party lands of Ibiza are some of the most iconic in the world. From the late ’60s and early ’70s that saw the “flower power” revolution bring thousands of hippies to the island, the introduction of Amnesia and Pacha in the ’90s, and the hustle-and-bustle of DC10 and Circoloco that has welcomed the likes of Virgil Abloh, Ibiza will continue to stand as the go-to place for party-goers around the globe.

With this being said, Dave Swindells’ latest Ibiza ‘89 edition looks back at some iconic moments from times in venues such as Ku, Amnesia, Pacha, and Café del Marl; times, before Ku and Amnesia were forced to cover their dancefloors, amidst the waves of British clubbers that arrived to two-step their ways into the night.1 of 4

“It was easy to believe that almost anything was possible in Ibiza in 1989; that many of the big clubs put MDMA powder into their cocktails; that there was always another club or bar to carry on to,” Swindells’ book states. “It didn’t really matter about your age or sexual preference or how much money you had if you came for the fiesta and the music; that there was always a secret cove or beach where you could create your own party… And all of that was pretty much true.”

You can take a closer look at some of the snaps from Ibiza ‘89 above and it is available to purchase in its entirety via the official Dover Street Market E-Shop now.
