Residencies have been announced, lineups have been revealed, and we’ve had a Skyscanner tab ready to go on our phones for weeks now - Ibiza 2024 is coming. 

If you’ve been wondering, “When are the Ibiza opening parties?” the answer is, so soon we can’t sit still! Well, that’s true for some of them. While some opening parties are going down as soon as this weekend, some arrive further into the year to mark the beginning of a residency. Yep, if we’re counting all types of opening parties, they go down anywhere from the end of April right down to September. 

Check out the best Ibiza opening parties in 2024 below, covering all of the best clubs in Ibiza plus other clubbing venues on the island. To make it a little simpler, we've organised them into venue opening parties and residency opening parties.
