A.K.A. THE STARTING POINT OF SUMMER
We know Ibiza like the back of our hand, so we are going to share with you some of our knowledge of the seasonal landscape.
Want to know more? Let us guide you through from the start.. Incoming our Opening Parties Guide!
Each year the season gets longer, more parties appearing, creating a longer opening period. Things generally kick off the first week of May, with island originals such as Pacha hosting events from the word, go.
Moving forward into the month, you will see many more opening events appearing with big names such as Amnesia, Ushuaia and O Beach kicking off their seasons in style. Toward the end of the month the majority of club opening parties have passed and now the marks the beginnings of the individual promoter openings happening daily.
By June nearly every club on the island is now open and there are opening parties galore at almost every venue, which carries on until around mid-June by which time the season is almost in full flow.
Our best advice for the perfect opening party period is the second half of May until the first week of June, at this point you will have a selection of the hottest parties. Not only this but often the opening parties often have some of the best line ups of the season, so choose your dates wisely!
BOOKING EARLY: FLIGHTS AND ACCOMMODATION
It might seem like a lifetime away but we know how fast the summer season comes around, next thing you know you will be packing your case and doing the annual rummage around for your passport.
Take note if you are a group and thinking of booking also! The earlier you book as a group means you can often you can choose larger rooms and receive helpful support with your booking. Hen-do, stag, birthday weekend? Get ahead and book now!
For flights, we have just updated our monthly flight watch, so you can skip past all the searching and click straight through to Skyscanner, checkout and book! Ibiza only has one airport so there is no confusion and due to the island size you can get from the airport to San Antonio within around 25 minutes.
Our advice for booking opening parties (and more often than not any holiday in Ibiza) is book early! Think, small deposits, big discounts, more options of accommodation and saving £££ that you can spend elsewhere.. new holiday wardrobe or your favourite jugs of cocktails – ours is the Doorly Daiquiri.
PARTIES AND TICKETS
Earlybird, earlybird, earlybird.. Read on! We will make this brief as there is more than a handful to describe each, but here are the basics of how it works: Amnesia, Benimussa Park ‘Zoo’, DC-10, Es Paradis, Eden, Hi Ibiza, O Beach, Pacha and Privilege all have their own ‘club openings’ and also play host to weekly events, run by individual promoters.
These individual parties offer a range of genres throughout each night of the week from house music, to trance, to techno and to disco. It doesn’t stop there, these are just a short few of the genres you can find on the island, where each party is headlined by the hottest artists and DJ’s, which many holidaymakers base their trip on.
Coming to be in your favourite club, watching epic DJ’s drop the biggest tunes of the summer? Or your first trip to Ibiza? a Hen-do/Stag-do? We always recommend purchasing earlybird tickets as you can save up-to half the price you may pay in resort or on the door. That means same experience, just saving yourself dollar for drinks.. thank us later!
The same equivalent to how long is a piece of string.. Our advice on this is to read our guide about the 5 biggest myths.
However at a glance if you are savvy with your money (we don’t mean living on supernoodles and water) you can often find many restaurants with reasonably priced meals, the Ibiza Rocks Bar Chicken Pitta Special is always a shout -not to be bias.
Save your money when travelling to the clubs by hopping on the Disco Bus for a small 3.50€, which you can access the majority of clubs by, just double check the timetables first! Save also throughout the day if you don’t want to be spending money on sit-down meals you can always head to the local supermarkets and stock up on drinks and snacks.
