Ibiza is a place that creates and fulfills dreams – for some. It is a place that many see as a mythical spot in the Mediterranean with godly women dancing in bikinis on beaches, world-class DJs playing in the famous Balearic clubs, the beautiful views when moving away form the touristic areas and so on. When you ask Google what the magic of Ibiza is, the variety of hits you get is speaking for the answer. This ‘magic’ is an often talked about and popular subject. So what exactly is it, then?

Vice shot a 30-minute Ibiza documentary trying to find an answer to that question. Clive Martin, known for his pretty funny video critiques of music genres, observes that the island has many faces and that it offers a spot to fulfill everyone’s needs, desires and lifestyle. That these preferences are different for some is a reality that you could only expect. What is sure is that Clive Martin has definitely seen the best and the worst of Ibiza, as Carl Cox will surely agree..

His conclusion? See for yourself:

New York ’78 – It’s Saturday night and there’s a full moon. Blood is crawling in hidden places. On New York’s West 54th Street stands an endless row of fans who are dying to get into Studio 54 and become part of the inside crowd. Studio 54 is the only thing that really matters to these loyal followers. In the infamous VIP-room of the club owned by Steve Rubell events take place that never see daylight. But some things are just irreversible. There are rumours that Freddie Mercury and Blondie (Debbie Harry) found each other in the middle of the night, while being in ecstasy. During this night something that is rather unthought of happened. Freddie Mercury, who is gay, makes love to Blondie in a shadow corner of the VIP room, and makes her pregnant. Blondie decides to keep the baby, while being at the height of her career. Between her two most successful albums ‘Paralellel Lines’ and ‘Eat to the Beat’, Blondie is off the radar for five months - ‘sick’, and does not accept any performances. Nightlife people say that she gave birth to a boy, who was brought forth amid all the buzz of the nightlife, and has music flowing through every cell in his body.
