The new residency dubbed 'USED + ABUSED' kicks off on June 6 and will run every Thursday until the end of September. Loco Dice has been one of electronic music’s leading curators in techno for over a decade and stated in a press release, "This year is the 15th anniversary of me playing on the island. It has been an incredible journey so far, and now it’s the perfect time for me to create a new special set of experiences for my people from across the globe."
The daytime series will transform Ushuaïa Ibiza into a utopian environment and will be immersed with the full Loco Dice treatment. Each week will feature a complete production overhaul with the venue being completely transformed to bring back that special terrace vibe that only Ibiza does so well. The party will see Dice’s artistic peers from across the house and techno spectrum join in to help create a new and exciting series of events for the coming season.

To explain what it’s like to attend Ultra Music Festival isn’t quite that easy. Sure, those who can’t grasp exactly what “EDM” is just don’t get it. To love house music along with it’s accompanying sub genres, is truly a sort of cult our generation has embraced. Over the course of 3 days, Weekend 1 welcomed well over 50,000 people.
