The people, the memories, the moments the atmospheres, the views, the parties and the soundtracks, doing an Ibiza season is a life-changing experience and these are our top tips to surviving a season.
From that rushkinoff 7€ vodka (cough included) to the longest baguette of bread and the many tubs of aioli you will consume, supermarkets such as Spar, Eroski and Mercadonna are a frequent hang out for Ibiza Workers – you are always guaranteed to see someone you know.
ONE PIECE OF ADVICE TO PEOPLE APPLYING TO ROCKS?
Ibiza is the party capital of the world, the biggest parties, longest residencies and in-demand DJ’s on the White Isle for 6 months of summer. So, you are more than likely going to become a regular at these events, and at a guess not wanting to pay 50€+ each night. Que, the workers passes.
At the beginning of the season, many brands will host sign up days and often give away free merch. Not every event on the island offers these so DON’T expect free entry across the island – Pestering and rude requests for guestlist on workers pages are not one way to build up your network, so stay positive, polite and grateful!
As much as we all like to think we are superhuman and can go out dancing and partying every night, the reality is – your body cannot handle it. Not only for your body but also your bank balance.
It’s all fun and games but hitting the clubs every night combined with the 7 am bedtime for the first month of your season, isn’t advised. Chances are you will end up with no money and on the first flight back home faster than you would believe!
You’re living in Ibiza, soaring temperatures, working long hours and of course more than likely partying even more but it is essential to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. We advise stocking up on your supermarket run, it’s generally cheaper with packets of 6 1.5l bottles to set you back less than 2€.
DESCRIBE YOUR SEASON IN 3 WORDS:
You’re living on a beautiful island in the med, living in the sunshine, surrounded by like-minded people who will become like family and all of the above is soundtracked by some of the biggest DJ’s from around the world.
Yes, Ibiza’s rep as a party capital is very true and it is what the island is famed for, but don’t miss out on the chance to explore what else the island has to offer on your days off! From beaches to boats, Es Vedra to Formentera, Ibiza has many hidden gems!
