Fresh off the back of our latest announcement, we caught up with our 2022 Cuckoo Land resident DJ, Jess Bays. The last 12 months have been huge for Jess with a Defected residency, a huge Warehouse Project set and the launch of her brand new show on Capital Dance.
We find out about Jess’ experience with Ibiza, what to expect this Summer at Cuckoo Land and her favourite venue to date. Can we fast forward to summer now!?
My earliest memory of Ibiza is going on my first girls holiday! It was like I was taken to a whole new world where music was the most important thing on the island… Basically I went to heaven!
There’s SO many! An old abandoned nightclub up in the mountains, also Es Vedra Rock, there’s also a beautiful discreet restaurant called Bambuddah Grove, and a club called Underground that’s where the afters really get going!
It’s hard to pinpoint just one thing. I literally miss EVERYTHING! Watching the sunsets with your chosen family, the beautiful weather, the island that never sleeps, discovering new music & new DJs!
"It was like I was taken to a whole new world where music was the most important thing on the island... Basically I went to heaven!"
Getting my teeth sunk into my first ever Ibiza Residency! I can’t wait to be on the island more than ever before, especially with the Cuckoo Land family as it’s a party/brand I’ve loved for so long! Such an exciting summer ahead!
John Summit! The party boy who’s taken the music industry by story over the last 18 months! You will not be disappointed.
Oh absolutely! They always go down a treat because of the nostalgic vibe I like to create with them… Always throwback tracks from my early music days! I honestly love making them.

MK! He was my first on & he’s like my big bro & biggest influence on the music I make & the sets I play. Always been so supportive of everything I do so it was a privilege to have him on first.
HONEY DIJON! How epic would that be getting to play with the iconic queen of house music!? MANIFEST MANIFEST MANIFEST!
It a toss up between Manchester’s Warehouse Project, and Croatia’s Barbarella’s Discotheque! Both so special for different reasons. WHP for the shear size & vibe. Barbarella’s for the outside venue when the sun rises.
