It’s high summer in Ibiza

Jessica Capaz McCarthy, The Music Maven

Musical Director, Pacha Ibiza

Jessica Capaz McCarthy is the only female ever to hold the position of Musical Director at an Ibiza club. “I don’t really see it like that,” muses the 30-year-old, ever the diplomat. “It’s not really an issue.” Capaz is softly spoken and immaculately dressed, but she’s certainly earned her stripes in the music industry. After leaving a fashion career in Barcelona to move to Ibiza at 19 – “for love, what else?” – she set up a ticket sales booth in the port. Cementing great relationships with the club bosses made her the obvious choice when Pacha director, Francisco Ferrer, needed a new assistant. “That was four years ago, and last year I began doing bookings. My knowledge is about what works in Ibiza – I’m a clubber! And I’m still learning, but I really, really love my job.”
