Are you gearing up for a summer of fun? If you’re like us, you’re ready to get away from work, let your hair down, and party like you’re back at uni. Ibiza is Spain’s undisputed party capital, with non-stop clubs, parties, and events. Known as the White Isle because of its pristine beaches, you can relax all day and party all night.
Birmingham Airport has plenty of direct flights to get you to the Spanish sun faster. Six airlines fly multiple times each week, so pack up your towel, bikini, and sunnies, and you’ll be landing on this tropical party paradise in no time.
The streets of Ibiza are lined with some of the best clubs in the world. They pump out music from across the globe and feature some truly amazing artists and DJs. These clubs are our favourites for this summer – get ready to stay out until sunrise!
Pacha Ibiza - One of the oldest nightclubs on the island, Pacha first opened its doors in 1973. It might be the original, but it’s still one of the best, giving party-goers an authentic Ibiza club experience. With big names including David Guetta and Bob Sinclair, Pacha is not to be missed.
Privilege - Party all night long in the Guinness-World-Record-holding Privilege, certified as the largest nightclub in the world. With a swimming pool as well as open air dance floors, this place is a party-goer’s playground.
Amnesia - A classic club in the heart of San Antonio, Amnesia was founded in the 80s and plays a signature mix of house, techno, trance, Drum & Bass and more. You can witness the sun coming up or even experience Foam & Diamonds by Paris Hilton, featuring guest appearances from the famous blonde herself.
Eden - Known for its underground music scene, Eden got a revamp last year. It now features a state-of-the-art sound system to better showcase the world-class acts bringing the party to this fun nightclub.
Heart - This exclusive club promises to be the cultural highlight of your trip, with amazing dining and live performances. It’s partly run by Guy Laliberté, founder of Cirque du Soleil, which gives you an idea of its kudos.
Ibiza is home to some of the most exclusive and exciting parties in the world, featuring famous DJs and epic venues. If you’re as pumped as we are for great nights out, here’s our pick of the best parties in Ibiza this summer.
Club Music Parties - Many of Ibiza’s top clubs have different themed parties each night. You can find the very best and biggest names in genres from EDM to house. Make sure you check out Cream in Amnesia on Thursdays, Ibiza’s most popular electronic night. Another favourite is the biggest day party on the island – David Guetta’s aptly named Big. Held on Mondays in Ushuaia, it’s filled with the French DJ’s signature antics.
Boat Parties - Is it an Ibiza holiday if you don’t go to at least one boat party? Don’t miss Noah’s Arc by the Zoo Project, where underground electronic music makes the perfect soundtrack to a cruise round Es Vedrà island, complete with dance performances and secret after parties. Or set out for a sunset swim with a couple hundred of your closest friends on the Reverb Boat Party, one of Ibiza’s best value parties.
Closing Parties - The last week of September marks the end of the Ibiza season, and closing parties start to pop up across the island. We’re excited about Craig David’s TS5 Closing Pool Party at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel, on 21st September. The full line up hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s consistently one of the biggest pool parties in Ibiza. We’re also excited about Armin van Buuren’s closing party on 13th September. The trance master will be closing out his residency at Hi with a massive night of his anthemic style of trace, so the dance floor will be packed.
It’s not just clubs and parties in Ibiza; there’s loads going on during the day as well. Check out these concerts and events happening throughout the White Isle.
BBC Radio One Weekend - Usually taking place at the beginning of August, this is an event not to be missed. Lots of big names will be descending on Ibiza for a full-on weekend of hedonistic pleasure. In recent years, Ibiza newcomers Ushuaia have hosted this epic weekend, featuring 3 days of music and partying.
Saints Days - They take Saints Days seriously on the White Isle, celebrating San Juan, the Patron Saint of Ibiza, at the end of June with festivities and LOTS of fireworks. There are four other Saints Days in August that enjoy similar celebrations.
Live music - There are plenty of DJs and acts in all the clubs every night, but if you’re looking for something a little different, check out Bar Mambo. Not only is it the best place to watch the sunset, they also play host to a range of different music acts throughout the summer.
Hippy Markets - Ibiza has loads of markets, many featuring some of the artisans and craftspeople who call the island home. Our favourites are the Hippy markets, the biggest of which are the Punta Arabi Hippy Market in Es Caná on Wednesdays, and the Las Dalias Hippy Market in San Carlos on Saturdays.
