There are few events in clubland bigger than the Privilege Opening Party. This season’s event kicked-off a few minutes before midnight on Friday and continued until Saturday afternoon. Markus Schultz and John Dahlback topped the main stage line-up, with Riva Starr and Hernan Cattaneo booked to headline the new Vista Room.
You’ll find the two new Vista dancehalls where the old Privi Restaurant and Coco Loco rooms used to be. The first of these two new areas is called the Vista Box, which is a small, dark, neon-lit backroom with a midnight patio section designed for smokers and heavy breathers.
The larger of the two rooms – the Vista Room – is a clean, spacious, glass walled discotheque, fuelled by a raging Funktion-One loudspeaker rig and managed by a crew of chubby lifeguards who like to drop inflatable toys down onto the crowd below. The Vista Room looks, sounds and feels crisp, sharp and dynamic, and its coming has given the venue that extra edge that has been missing since Manumission departed for Amnesia.
But the Privilege Opening Party is not just about the music – the live show will make your eyes pop out of your head and your mouth water like a drooling weir. Imagine a horde of hard nippled, silicone stuffed beauties costumed-up as decadent butterflies weaving around on a theatre sized stage while a selection of whey protein crazed muscle hombres stomp alongside, as flaming plumes of gasoline burst up into the air and glittering streamers fall down on the crowd from the industrial strength rafters that line the high ceiling above. Add to the mix: the Mad Max Thunderdome styled chillout area, the sparkling chandeliers, the alfresco garden, the biblical preachers and clowns pushing through the crowd. And now, with the two new Vista Rooms, there is no doubt that dancing in Privilege once again feels elegantly righteous and wholly unique.
