Balearic beats: Pacha turns 50

Cover art for Culture with Robert Bound

In this week’s ‘Summer Weekly’ there’s a romping read about the 50-year history of Spanish super-club Pacha. Our man in Spain was there for the club’s birthday bash and also explores the group’s disco empire (recently sold for a reported €350m). With talk switching to fiscal projections and fistfuls of cash, we meet some of the people who helped turn this Balearic club into the world’s premiere party brand.

Thirteen years in, Helsinki’s Flow Festival has established itself as one of Northern Europe’s leading music festivals. This year’s line-up boasted The XX, Frank Ocean, Aphex Twin and Angel Olsen with plenty more local and international talent thrown in for good measure. We attended this year’s party and met American rockers The Black Lips and Finland’s own Mikko Joensuu.
