Luciano and his Vagabundos are back in Ibiza!
The opening party last Sunday at Space Ibiza was simply great, and it was the first session of a long and amazing season.
Ibiza by Night had the opportunity to interview Luciano and his tour manager Alban Piot and to talk about Ibiza and the new projects.
Firstly, we interviewed Luciano.
IBN: Luciano and Vagabundos return after two years on the island: what do we have to expect in the following months? Why did you choose Space Ibiza?
Luciano:” We chose Space Ibiza to be closer to the people! We went back to our roots…we decided to start from the beginning. We also wanted to tell the stories that people love about our globetrotting….whilst still having smiley, shiny faces !!! Vagabundos is a lifestyle, it’s a state of mind and we love it ! Space is one of the most emblematic places in Ibiza, and we really wanted to take our people to a new adventure!
We are so happy and blessed to have the chance to play in the terrace!
We brought with us many people that have been following us for years… people that have supported us since we made our first edition of Vagabundos, like all our great friends and crew from Detroit.
And don’t forget we also decided to share the platform with “Next Wave”, which is just incredible and full of positive energy! We have also a lot of local talent that represents a lot of us !“.
IBN:This year you will play with several new artists, how do you choose your team?
Luciano:”How do I choose my team ? I think they choose to be with me ! I love my people and I’ ll do anything for them ! I think this is the key! A sort of devotion!”
IBN: Finally, can you describe your personal relationship with Ibiza?
Luciano:”Ibiza is my home! Ibiza embraced me 17 years ago and never let me go ! So I decided that Ibiza is my home! I cherish every corner of “la isla”, and I try to be part of it as a creative mind… and also I want to be loyal to the freedom that the place gave me ! I deeply respect Ibiza!“.

And now we move on to Alban Piot (Alban is also the
technical designer of all of Luciano’s brand and the Night Manager of the Cadenza shows, in the picture below with Luciano).
IBN: So Alban, are you ready for this new residency in Ibiza: what is a typical day as the Tour Manager for you?
Alban: ” My day? Well …there’s a lot of phone calls. I wake up before everybody else, go to the club before everybody else, make sure Luciano has everything that he needs and that everything works perfectly, take care of ALL the problems…. Basically a nightmare (laughs)… I’m joking, of course. It’s a great job but it’s not all craziness and partying. I have to be super professional“.
IBN: Since Destino’s opening party it seems that the season is under Luciano’s mark, what do you expect from Ibiza 2015?
Alban: “A lot of success and a lot of happiness for Luciano. He deserves it. Plus, I want all of our fans to have their best times at our shows…. We work hard to get this result“.
IBN: And, as tour manager, which is the location that you think is “most individual” that you have visited over the years?
Alban:”South America is always pretty wild. I like their attitude. They’re very free spirits, and the parties are always “anything goes”…. So much fun“.
Thanks Luciano and to Alban (who made this double interview possible) … and now we are ready for a great, new season of Vagabundos!
