Is it your first time clubbing on the island and you want to know the best clubs to go to? With so many parties and residences to choose from, you need an Ibiza veteran to help you find your way among the chaos. That's where we come in. Let's start with Hï Ibiza.
Opening in 2017, Ibiza's leading and most technologically advanced venue Hï Ibiza continues to bring in some of the biggest names in the industry and the weekly rosters keep getting better and better. Some old, some new, and a little something for everyone, check out what the 2019 residencies are all about.
If you've landed on Ibiza and you're not so much into thumping techno, then you may fear you are in the wrong place. Worry not, you can still dance to the sounds of hip hop, RnB, trap and Latin at a selection of Urban parties; RICHBITCH leads the way.
Resident host and urban-pop sensation Ale Zuber has invited some of the most recognized artists in the industry. Trey Songz kicked things off with a bang on 15 July and AYO & TEO, DJ Policy, DJ Charlsey, Don Omar, Stefflon Don and Tyga are but a few huge names to join Ibiza's hottest reggaeton party.
Running until 26 August, things are heating up in Playa d'en Bossa on Monday's.
Just look at the enormous queue snaking around the front of the venue. This is all down to BODYWORKS, the new groundbreaking residency taking Tuesday nights by storm. We knew that bringing three underground giants, known as CamelPhat, Solardo and FISHER, would go down a treat, but BODYWORKS has exceeded all expectations by attracting over 6,000 ravers each week.
Expect huge amounts of energy, outrageous production, stellar house and techno sounds, enthusiastic crowds and immense vibes. What more can you ask for? We're losing it at BODYWORKS until 24 September.
Three of the worlds most charismatic artists reclaim the Wednesday night spot at Hï Ibiza. If you love EDM, euphoric trance and house then you've hit the jackpot with Armin Van Buuren's spell-binding residency.
Running until 11 September, The King of trance will take over the Terrace, and the Club Room (room 2) will see Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano transmit their infectious energy from the decks to the crowd.
Headed by Italian duo Tale of Us, Afterlife is the mesmerising brand that presents the very best melodic, dark and progressive techno. Both rooms boast heavyweight lineups with some of the most talented techno masters in the industry in charge of the decks; Adriatique, Amelie Lens, Dixon, Maceo Plex, Solomun and Nina Kravis are but a few.
The hypnotizing production and stimulating rhythm will whisk you away into another dimension. Afterlife is an invitation to get lost in the music.
The final date will be 3 October - don't miss out.
David Guetta's F*** Me I'm Famous party is of the most historic, acclaimed and memorable parties on Ibiza. The controversial move from Pacha to Hï Ibiza has proved an almighty success in 2019 and potentially the busiest night of the week at the forward-thinking venue.
In the words of David Guetta himself: "A new chapter is starting in my life... The result is priceless: a unique experience for my fans and a new level of creativity. New music, new visuals, new production and a new life !!!! We already broke the ticket sales record so we are up to write history together this summer".
Guetta will be joined by resident DJ Idris Elba and many more chart-topping artists until 4 October.
One of the most treasured residencies in Ibiza, Black Coffee presents a very special musical futuristic event. The South African house innovator continues to attract thousands of people to the island, all eager to witness his undeniable talent inside the magnetic walls of Ibiza's most glamorous superclub.
The phenomenal levels of production and modernistic design of Hï Ibiza are nothing short of perfect for the style of music and atmosphere such a night creates.
Black Coffee and friends present a unique soundtrack of afro-house rhythm and sweet percussion with a melodic groove every Saturday until 5 October.
The flamboyant extravaganza Glitterbox returns to the already sparkling Hï Ibiza on a new night, Sunday until 6 October. Glitterbox is a night for everyone to shine and enjoy the ultimate disco and feel-good funk beats underneath hundreds of shimmering disco balls.
Expect eccentric dancers, good vibes, plenty of energy, drag queens, confetti downpours, vibrant lights and a crowd with a wardrobe so ostentatious it would be rude not to put on your sparkliest garms.
The best disco, funk and house tastemakers complete the lineup including Armand Van Helden, Basement Jaxx, Dimitri From Paris, Horse Meat Disco, Roger Sanchez, Honey Dijon and more as well as live performances from Barbara Tucker, Kathy Sledge and more.
The German producer Boris Brejcha will bring his particularly high-tech minimal sounds to the dancefloor on Wednesday 14 and 21 August, taking over Armin van Buuren's 2-week break in the middle of the season.
Two exclusive dates of breakbeat, IDM, electro and techno with the experimental genius behind the decks. With his iconic mask and forward-thinking sound, Boris Brejcha has become one of the most prolific artists of the moment.
