Introducing: IbizaVinylClub – Vinyl addicts who are making a positive change for vulnerable children

At the IbizaVinylClub, the belief is that vinyl music is an art form that transcends age, experience, and boundaries. The community embraces vinyl enthusiasts from all walks of life, fostering an in-clusive environment which actively involves like-minded people at their popular VinylExchange events; and has a constantly expanding network of vinyl junkies and wax enthusiasts who share the same passion on the island.

The real pull of the IVC is their interactive events, where guests and members can get involved on Opendecks, the VinylExchange & sale and the AudioPoint. These hands-on experiences allow attendees to engage with vinyl music tangibly and memorably. Each event also sees performances from the island’s most revered vinyl DJs, including long time Ibiza heads such as Ken Fan, David Phillips, Joan Ribas, Andy Baxter, Pete Gooding, Jo Mills, Karlos Sense and DJane Tsunami to name just a few.

Thus far over 140 vinyl DJs have graced the IVC decks at more than 100 IVC events which have taken place at over 40 of Ibiza’s favourite music spots… including the legendary Café del Mar, Las Dalias, Ibiza Rocks Bar and Pikes Ibiza.

Looking to 2024, the IbizaVinylClub has exciting plans in store. They are thrilled to close their third winter residency at Las Dalias cafe; the addition of numerous vinyl DJs to their roster (the IbizaVinylColectiv IVCLCTV), and exciting new partnerships with Technics and Ibiza Sonica Radio. Furthermore, they continue to support their very own charitable cause, PROJECT EQUILIBRIUM, which aims to Enhance Lives with the Power of Vinyl Music. In addition to multiple fundraising initiatives, they donate all fees received for vinyl sales at events and online to vulnerable children and orphan projects in Africa, with over €10,000 already gifted to beneficiaries in Uganda and Tanzania.

Additionally, 2024 will see IbizaVinylClub launch its CLUBHOUSE campaign. This fundraising project aims to establish the IbizaVinylClubHouse, a dedicated resort designed for vinyl lovers from around the world. ThelClubHouse will feature multiple performance stages, 100% analogue sound systems, a vinyl museum, an analogue production studio, vinyl-disc etching, listening booths and events, and an extensive selection of vinyl music for purchase and exchange. It will be a haven for vinyl enthusiasts and a hub for collaborative opportunities and unforgettable vinyl adventures.

“The vision for IbizaVinylClub is continuously expanding, and we invite you to join us in this vibrant community. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or new to the vinyl scene, we guarantee a warm welcome and an unforgettable experience. Come meet, swap, and play with us the next time you’re in Ibiza, and immerse yourself in the world of vinyl music.” – Gary Peachey (IVC founder)

“It’s been great watching this community take shape and grow as vinyl has remained very close to my own heart” – Pete Gooding 

“Ibiza Vinyl Club (IVC) is a great community of vinyl lovers based in Ibiza; it is always a pleasure to be asked to play for this crew and to be part of the family. The events are top notch bringing local and international DJs together to celebrate all things vinyl, it is such a warm felt and loved community, bringing something authentic to the Ibiza music scene.” – Michael Wilson (DJ Mag)

“Meeting the IVC has gifted me great memories of my teacher José Padilla… and with the help of Gary, and his friends, we now have a great, fun event and a community for everyone, with each event contributing being a charitable purpose for children in Africa” – Djane Tsunami
