Did you know Ibiza has around 10 hours of sun a day? It also has 57, 57, different beaches, and the average temperatures stay above 20 degrees for over eight months of the year. It's also home to some of the biggest, maddest, longest parties, with the world's leading DJs who were born to get the party started soundtracking it all.
We know you didn’t really need any convincing to head back out to Ibiza, but we thought we’d be that mate that reminds you just how unreal it is.
As the party capital of Europe, maybe even the world, there’s always loads on, and we can’t wait to get stuck into it again. And, seeing as you’re here, you probably feel the same way too. So let’s get planning! Here are the best events and music festivals in Ibiza.
After what feels like forever, Defected Ibiza will be returning to the party island with a lineup packed with talent, tunes, and great vibes. Defected Ibiza was born from Defected Records, a record label that, for the past 20 years, has been dedicated to unbeatable house music, making them the perfect team to soundtrack your summer getaway. With artists such as Bob Sinclair and Honey Dijon on the lineup, how could you say no?
The Ibiza Music Summit is a bit different to your average fest. This celebration of music comes with plenty of electronic music performances, keynote speakers, workshops, conversations, lectures and more with industry leaders. If that wasn’t enough, there’ll be a bunch of opening parties and a seven-hour closing event down in Ibiza Old Town. The team behind it have decided to make this year’s the longest yet, filling the schedule with music, activities, and great times.
BPM puts on some seriously good parties including festivals in America, Costa Rica, and Argentina, and in May, they’ll be bringing the party back to Ibiza. Claiming 2022 to be the biggest to date, this isn’t one you’ll want to miss. While not much has been revealed just yet, BPM has seen massive success across all its editions thanks to its stunning locations and tasty lineups. If you’re looking for a top Ibiza party, we recommend keeping an eye on this one.
Ibiza Rocks host iconic events at a lush hotel with pools, cocktails, sun, dancing, and unreal vibes. This year, the fest is bringing some huge names to the poolside, including Joel Corry, the man behind OUT OUT ft Charli XCX and Saweetie, Bed, and more. Other days will see Nathan Dawe, the artist who created the bangers Lighter ft KSI, Way Too Long, and other dance tunes, take to the decks. No matter what vibe you’re after, from chilling by the pool to raving through the night into the day, Ibiza Rocks has got you.
Here’s one for the hardcore ravers who can go all night long and beyond. Amnesia’s opening party in May will be raging on for a total of, get ready, 18 hours. From 6 pm until noon, Amnesia, one of Ibiza’s internationally renowned nightclubs, will be raging on until you can’t stand anymore. The club, which opened all the way back in 1976, has won the Best Global Club award a total of four times. Even better, if you secure your early bird tickets now, you’ll also get two drinks included!
This one’s gonna huge! Just look at that lineup. Stunning. Tearing up the Ushuaia and Hi Ibiza clubs on the 30th of April will be a whole load of house, techno, trance, and other banging electronic music that’s perfect for losing yourself and having a sick time. Some of the insanely good artists on this year’s lineup include the legendary Black Coffee, Charlotte de Witte, Paul Kalkbrenner live, and The Martinez Brothers. This is shaping up to be possibly one of the best events of Ibiza 2022.
Four days and four nights off house and techno? Don’t mind if we do! FLY Festival, originally in Scotland, is headed over the party island of Ibiza. Expect over 20 headliners and special guests, pool parties, open-air day parties, boat parties, late-night terrace raves, and takeovers of some of Ibiza’s most iconic, well-known clubs. What more could you want? Well, just in case that wasn’t enough, FLY Festival are one step ahead with yoga, beach games and other wellness activities. Sorted.
Not everyone has summer available to fly out to Ibiza, though. And nothing beats escaping to somewhere with a pool, a beach, and a glistening sun as the weather back home starts to get grim again. Going down in October, Back To Ibiza at the Beach Star Hotel is the perfect solution. As well as getting away from the nasty UK weather, Back To Ibiza has a wider variety of genres booked, including house, garage, jungle, RnB, afrobeats, dancehall, and funky house. Excuse us while we book our flights…
Groove Odyssey is back again with an already massive lineup that’ll only get bigger and bigger. Already we have Joey Negro, a fantastically talented house DJ with a loyal fanbase, DJ Spen, a house music veteran whose career goes back to the 80s, and the G Funk Odyssey Band, who will surely turn the place right up. With plenty of artists still to be announced, as well as priority access to the superclub Eden and tickets for boat parties, this one's a brilliant choice.
Ibiza is perfect for any partier who loves tunes, cocktails, stunning weather, poolside parties, the best clubs in the world and first-class DJs. With so many different events and festivals, there’s always something on that’ll keep everyone in your friend group happy. Now send that screenshot to the group chat and start browsing for some holiday clothes!
