First time coming to the island in 2020? Need some help on when to go?
Then look no further, we have got you covered!
The Ibiza party season begins with Opening Parties in May and continues through till the first week of October when the majority of the super clubs close. Whether you want to party till dawn at the opening parties or a 7-day party in peak season this can help you choose! See below for a more detailed break down of the Ibiza season
In May the spirit of Ibiza starts to awaken from the winter and we open up the Ibiza Rocks Hotel for another crazy season!
At the start of the month things are still quite chilled with the weather warming up and flight prices cheap. In terms of party spots bars start to open again around the island particularly in San Antonio with it’s infamous west-end strip (expect your typical ‘2 drinks and 2 shots for 10€’ deals) but you can expect very few of the super clubs to be open apart from traditionally Pacha, who host a few individual events on weekends.
However, as the month goes on expect for the party calendar to slowly start filling up as many venues host their main opening parties including our first Ibiza Rocks pool party! For example super club Ushuaia have just announced their 2020 Odyssey Opening Party will take place this year on the 18th May.
Expect by the end of May most of the super clubs will be open with a daily line up.
May 2020 is a perfect time to experience Ibiza without it being too hectic, book a few days break and be a part of history at some of the best Ibiza opening parties in 2020!
By the start of June, the island is noticeably busier (but not quite as rammed as in peak season) so it’s a paradise for Ibiza veterans or virgins. Flights and Hotel stay prices are still good, it’s not super hot and there is a wealth of early season parties to choose from so it’s the perfect time of year to come in a big group and keep things affordable. At Ibiza Rocks June is when our biggest day party programme on the island gets into full swing which featured the likes of DJ EZ, Sonny Fodera, Lovely Laura last summer.
Coming to the island last week of June / start of July gives you the perfect balance to experience the true Ibiza magic. June prices for flights and hotels and the start of peak season parties, perfect for those new to the island and wanting to be a part of the madness!
In August we’re talking the peak of the Ibiza season. The first week in August is generally the busiest week in the calendar as the famous BBC Radio 1 weekend lands.
A long-standing tradition, Radio 1 in Ibiza is a calendar date many Ibiza veterans will base their holiday schedule on. 2019 was all about Ibiza Rocks as we played host to both Radio 1 and 1Xtra for an incredible weekend of the best names in dance and urban music, broadcast live to the world.
Across the rest of the month the temperatures are at their highest in August and expect for club nights to be full of atmosphere carrying on the momentum from July. Things get more international as Spanish and Italian holidaymakers join the mix so expect reggaeton and techno sounds to take over the schedules.
If you want to book for the Radio 1 weekend you need to be quick, rooms sell out early at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel and across the island.
You may think summer is over but those in the know will tell you that when it comes to Ibiza it’s all about September. Much like June things are less busy, everything feels more chilled, Hotel and Flights are cheaper and the line ups across the island start to get a bit more experimental. The only downside is that the weather can be a bit more unpredictable compared to peak season.
Back end of the month it becomes all about the closing parties as everyone goes all out to end the summer with a bang. Closing parties in Ibiza are world renowned, think in-demand DJ’s, all day parties, after parties and more right through to the first weekend of October.
September is a great opportunity to come back to close the summer in style. Even if you have been once already in the season booking a short stay over a particular party is ideal.
