About Paco Fernandez
In the true spirit of the island, this fearless collection of Ibiza characters march to the beat of their own drums, creating unique soundtracks to inspire the rest of us. One such island stalwart is Paco Fernandez – but in his case, it’s the strings of a guitar that have seen him strum his way into the hearts of those who have encountered him – who has, incredibly, been performing at Pikes on and off for the last 35 years.
A weekly residency back in 1980-something led to a long friendship with our beloved Tony Pike, in addition to a deep love of the hotel’s ‘live and let live’ philosophy. Creating his own particular style of Flamenco chill-out, Paco’s long and varied career has taken in world tours, Grammy nominations, and a multitude of albums and concerts. Still, he returns to Pikes for an intimate weekly concert beneath the stars, where he feels free and liberated to do what he does best, playing and producing live Flamenco and fusion with his band and electronic accompaniment – or, as Paco describes it: “Throwing ourselves out of the plane without parachutes.”
