Get up to date with the latest whispers from the island
As we get another week closer to what is sure to be the biggest season yet for our beloved white isle, it’s time to look at Part 3 of all the latest news, gossip and rumours on the island. Expect change, brand new parties, discovering fresh talent and of course very little sleep as we prepare for the incoming sun-soaked summer sessions of Ibiza 2017. Not booked your trip yet? Check out all the Ibiza updates below to get you hyped and reaching for your passport quicker than you can say ‘en qué dirección al club por favor…’
SAY Hï TO SUMMER 2017
One of the most anticipated developments ahead of the upcoming season is the introduction to Ibiza’s newest superclub, Hï Ibiza. The latest venture from Ushuaïa Entertainment will be taking over the location where the iconic Space used to stand for 27 years over in Playa D’en Bossa. Details continue to be teased to the clubbing community as to what to expect from this one and the elephant in the room is that everyone has their fingers (and toes) crossed that this becomes one of best new additions to the island instead of proving those oozing music snobbery right with the underlining ‘well back when it was Space…’ attitude.
So far three summer residencies have been announced and they are three good ones – the effortlessly cool Black Coffee will play 18 dates across the summer starting on Saturday 3rd June, Defected’s Glitterbox will be extravagantly taking over Friday nights from 9th June plus EDM’s poster boy Martin Garrix with play resident for 11 dates starting on the 3rd July. For any Garrix megafans among you, catch his Multiply residency across the road at Ushuaïa from 6th July – 14th September for a double dose of Garrix in Ibiza this season!
In a further bid to prove they are not messing about with this one, the Hï crew have released details of their opening party which will be taking place on Sunday 28th May featuring resident Black Coffee plus Luciano, Andrea Oliva, Joris Voorn, Kölsch and many more.
For the ultimate Ibiza Weekender, get involved with the Amnesia Opening Party on 27th May and roll into the Hï Opening Party the next day.

AMNESIA: TOGETHER, CREAM & MUSIC ON RETURN
Amnesia looks set for another epic season featuring the return of party heavyweights Together, Cream and Music On.
Back for 16 weeks (Tuesday 6th June – 19th September), Together will continue to bring you one of the biggest Tuesday nights on the island. It’s been 6 seasons since the Together party first stepped through Amnesia’s iconic doors and this summer aims to continue the success with Main Room summer residents Chase & Status and Rudimental returning plus Gorgon City, Hannah Wants and MK taking control as the Terrace residents. Whether you are looking for serious bass or Ibiza house vibes, Together @ Amnesia has you covered. Expect Duke Dumont, Disciples and Andy C making up the impressive weekly line-ups plus many more.
Think Ibiza, think Cream. The legendary Ibiza classic has continued to remain relevant and exciting since its 1994 debut. Home to the finest sounds of trance and progressive house, you can be part of Cream during the 16 week residency this summer (Thursday 8th June – 21st September). As if you needed anymore convincing, Fatboy Slim is back at it again as summer resident for the brand, taking over the decks on 11 out of 16 nights! Paul Van Dyk will also be returning as a summer resident.
One for the tech heads, Marco Carola and co present Music On every Friday from 19th May – 7th October for a longer and extended summer of techno at Amnesia. Hugely popular with workers and the European crowd, prepare for dedicated raving until the sun comes up on the terrace for what has become one of the most talked about nights in Ibiza.

Recently purchased for a staggering €350 million, Ibiza’s oldest and most famous club has grown into a worldwide brand. Whispers have been circulating about just what the Pacha event structure would look like for 2017, would the new owners start from scratch? The answer, behave yourself.
Mosaic, Martin Solveig, Flower Power, Solomun + 1 and of course David Guetta’s Ibiza machine F*** Me I’m Famous have all been announced as making a comeback this season at the club behind the red cherries. For those not staying in Ibiza over a Friday night to experience Music On, Maceo Plex is back for Round 2 with 19 techno-fuelled weeks at Pacha for Mosaic following a strong debut last summer. Guetta fans rejoice as FMIF holds its infamous position on Thursday nights again for 2017 – a night boasting the biggest in EDM, radio friendly-dance with the grandeur you expect from a David Guetta showstopper.
