Pukka Up

Pukka Up

The most popular boat party departing from London and Ibiza, San Antonio and Playa Den Bossa every Tuesday and Friday including entry to Amnesia and Pacha!

Pukka Up started in 2003 as a series on sell-out boat parties on London’s Thames.. In 2003 Pukka Up moved to Ibiza for the summer hosting the first of its long running Sunset Boat Parties, and in 2004 it received the Mixmag award for ‘most mentalist party’. Over the following five summers Pukka Up became an Ibiza staple and as the decade went on, took up residencies in Privilege and Es Paradis.

By 2009 Pukka Up was celebrating its 100th Ibizan boat party. The Boat That Rocked. In the same summer it began hosting rooms at Space on both Carl Cox’s nights on Tuesday as well as Come Together on Fridays. This is a first for UK club brand and a true accolade of Pukka Up’s placing on the island.

Pukka Up’s influence has spread way beyond the Ibizan shores. MTV signed up to joint host the Pukka Up tour in ’07 broadcasting parties from the UK, Ireland and Miami across their MTV Galaxy Chart shows.

Pukka Up has become one of the most successful touring club brands in the UK with over 100 UK nights a year – whether that’s club nights in every major club  as famous as Nikki Beach. Their Ibiza reunion parties are the biggest for an independent club brand filling Pacha every autumn and in 2011 they begun a new residency at Ministry of Sound.

Pukka Up’s events have always had the right mix of tunes. Their DJs play across the board from house to electro, classics to new gems – but importantly the DJs themselves never over shadow the party. Pukka Up is about the clubbers and while the soundtrack is paramount, it’s the not the DJs that the stars of the show – it’s the people on the dancefloor.

Pukka Up have been releasing albums since 2009 and their first physical release, Ibiza Loves Me is due out on 13th June with a double boat mix and club mix. Their summer radio shows are syndicated to FM and internet stations in New York, Italy, Dublin and around the world. The Pukka Up’s monthly podcast, found on iTunes, is equally as popular with interviews, mixes, competitions.

Making every event unmissable has been at the beating heart of Pukka Up. The team of dancers are the first onto the floor and the last to leave, armed with give-aways, novelty props, caution tape, silly signs or just their own sass.

The high class, socialite identity is going to be this summer’s look and Pukka Up will be at the forefront of it.
