2014 beach parties on Mykonos, continued from previous page:
Paradise Club at Paradise beach
Paradise is famous around the world as the top party beach on Mykonos and one of the best in the Mediterranean. The golden-sand strand is lined with bars that host afternoon and evening parties every day throughout the summer, while two massive nightclubs — Paradise Club and Cavo Paradiso — hold overnight events featuring top international DJs. The two clubs both rank in the Top 25 of the DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs for 2014.
Paradise Club has announced that its entertainer lineup will include Showtek, DVBBS, Bingo Players, Afrojack and Bob Sinclar. Performance dates have not been announced, but a summer schedule is expected to be available soon.
Paradise Club has also revealed the names of its resident DJs for the summer: 15grams, Brad Wilder, Ray Bucks and Soheil.
Regular updates and promotional posters can be viewed on the Paradise Club Facebook page.

Cavo Paradiso at Paradise beach
Cavo Paradiso is the mammoth club that sprawls across most of the hill at the left side of Paradise beach. It celebrated its 20th anniversary last year with parties that ran from midnight til sunrise every night from June 21 until September 14. There’s no word yet on whether this year’s schedule will be packed with as many events, but headlining acts for three big parties this month have been announced. The May 17 opening bash will feature Argie & Terry, while Freespirit and Endie Kenzak will headline on May 24. The lineup for the “Show me Love” party on May 31 includes Johnny Gerontakis, DJ Zenn and Kid Angelo.
Other DJs on the club’s guest star roster for this summer include Armin Van Buuren, Nina Kraviz & Marcel Dettman, Cedric Gervais, and Tommy Trash. More DJ appearances and special events will be announced soon.

Kalua Restaurant and Beach Bar hosted numerous special events at Paraga beach last summer, and will repeat with more parties again this year. Its opening party took place on May 17 with resident DJ Nikos Aggelidis on the decks. See below for a chart showing events scheduled for the peak summer season.
This opening party announcement was posted on the Kalua Restaurant and Beach Bar Facebook page.

Nammos at Psarou beach
Nammos, the upscale Psarou beach restaurant that turns into a chic seaside party place at night, usually throws several major entertainment events each summer. In 2013, for instance, it hosted six separate celebrations between mid-June and late August.
So far, Nammos has announced only two parties for 2014 — one of which will actually be held at a trendy nightspot in Istanbul — but more events will likely be scheduled in the weeks ahead.
On May 23, Nammos will take its signature tastes and style to Anjelique, one of the top restaurant/nightclub venues in Istanbul, with a special “Gourmet & Party” event. The tables will get turned when Nammos “becomes” Anjelique for another “Gourmet & Party” fest on July 4. [Editor’s Note: Nammos announced on its Facebook page May 15 that the Istanbul event has been cancelled in light of the tragic coal mine disaster at Soma, Turkey. A new date will be announced in due course.]

Solymar at Kalo Livadi beach
Solymar restaurant and beach bar has been a popular drinking and dining spot at Kalo Livadi for years. And, like Nammos, it brings in DJs and entertainers for a few special festivities each summer.
The first party takes place June 28 and features Kenny Carpenter and Pascal Holydeep. Other big-name acts appearing at Solymar include Hector Romero on July 20; David Morales on August 2; Timmy Regisford on August 16; and Eli Rojas and ranua La Croix on August 30.
