Spotlight: Ibiza 2017

Andrew Kemp | Features & Interviews

There’s a reason Ibiza is considered the partying capital of the world - during the summer months it just doesn’t stop. Attracting the biggest names in the game, the White Isle never fails to cook up a tasty night at one of its many, many clubs and bars, with brands like Do Not Sleep, Resistance, We Are Rockstars and more working with the myriad of famous venues that pull in big crowds throughout the season. With party season approaching, we examined what’s on offer this year.

Pure Carl Cox
Sunday 11th and Sunday 18th June
Game over have pulled off what’s known in the football business as a world-class signing, recruiting Carl Cox for parties at Privilege on Sunday 11th and Sunday 18th June. Looking to recreate the crazy vibes served up at his Pure festivals in Sydney and Melbourne, the big man will join the Privilege crowd for a night of Pure Carl Cox, with house, old skool, rave and more all written on the menu in pen.

#Merky Festival
Ibiza Rocks Hotel
Tuesday 11th July
As of this summer, grime will officially have its own festival, and who better to lead it than Stormzy? With Dave, J Hus, Jaykae and Ray BLK also starring, the festival will pack ten hours of daytime poolside sets from an elite selection of urban music stars, with Kenny Allstar, Mist, Mostack and more also among those appearing. Grime history in the making.

Ibiza Rocks live shows
Ibiza Rocks Hotel
Tuesday 18th July - Tuesday 5th September
The undisputed leaders of live music on the White Isle are Ibiza Rocks, who’ve scored another cracking series with Dua Lipa, Clean Bandit, Royal Blood, Bastille and more booked in for this summer. Finishing up with The Kooks on Tuesday 5th September, the series will be capped off with new material from the cult indie band from Brighton.

Thursday 29th June - Thursday 28th September
Running every Thursday at the hands of Italian duo Tale Of Us, Afterlife seeks to delve into the deeper ravines of techno and house, propelled by powerful rhythms as they explore the edges of the genre. Having started in Barcelona, the move to Ibiza was somewhat of an inevitability, and it looks similarly certain that the run at Privilege will be as popular as any other series of nights this summer.

Float Your Boat
San Antonio
Thursday 8th June - Thursday 21st of September
Claiming to be the wildest boat party on Ibiza island, Float Your Boat sets sail from San Antonio every Thursday from 8th June to 21st of September, cruising around for three hours as guests soak up the warm rays of the late afternoon sun and enjoy high quality sound, the finest DJs and affordable drinks. Providing deals which allow entry into nighttime parties back on land as sweet little packages, Float Your Boat will this season see Sam Divine, George Kwali and Anton Powers behind the decks.

I Am A Rich Bitch
Friday 2nd June - Friday 22nd September
Fridays at Privilege will be given over to hip-hop, reggaeton, trap and moombahton, with go-go dancers and other live performers courtesy of IAMARICHBITCH. 

We Are Rockstars
Ibiza Rocks Hotel
Thursday 1st June - Thursday 22nd June
It’s a pretty sweet pool over at Ibiza Rocks Hotel, so it’s no surprise that We Are Rockstars were pretty keen to throw a party there. Returning for a sixth season, the promoters will welcome back the biggest acts in house, techno, drum & bass, garage and grime, offering a definitive taste of the UK’s underground dance music scene thanks to guests like Mistajam, Sigma, TQD and Stefflon Don. Parties run from Thursday 1st June until Thursday 22nd June.

Craig David’s TS5 Pool Party
Ibiza Rocks Hotel
Thursday 27th July - Thursday 21st September
By no means a new name to seasoned Beefa clubbers, Craig David’s TS5 pool parties are as fun today as they were when they first hit the scene. Demanded back by the Ibiza public after a massive set of shows last summer, TS5 and its creator are more decorated every year, with David’s ‘Best Male’ MOBO victory and Brit award nomination earning him a fan base every bit as large as the one he used to command at the height of his powers as an RnB crooner.

Privilege Ibiza
10th June - 7th October

Obtaining the title of Ibiza Best Session three years in a row isn't an easy acquisition, so you when stepping foot inside SuperMartXé it's safe to say you're at one of the best parties in the world. Taking control of Privilege every Saturday from June right through to October, SuperMartXé is one party with an atmosphere to match the credentials.

Tuesday 25th July - Tuesday 12th September
Resistance and Privilege team up to host techno titans and house heavyweights. Lineups are still to come, but with organisers of this size you can guarantee they’ll be big.

elrow Pool Party
Ibiza Rocks Hotel
Tuesday 8th and 22nd of August
As the old saying goes: when in Spain, go to an elrow party.
Ok, so it might not say that, but that seems to be the done thing anyway these days, with the Catalan party starters established as one of the world’s favourite party brands. Back in Ibiza for two exclusive pool parties on Tuesdays 8th and 22nd of August, the elrow crew will be hoping the tried and tested formula still works.

Pukka Up
Rio Ibiza
Tuesday 6th June - Saturday 16th September
Near enough the original Ibiza boat party, Pukka Up send out their ships on Tuesdays and Saturdays for what is thought to be the biggest boat party brand in the world. Basking in the glorious Balearic sunset, Pukka Up cruises are an unmissable part of the Ibiza series, and return in 2017 from Tuesday 6th June. Offering boat only tickets or the chance to continue the party at one of Ibiza’s most iconic venues, Pukka Up know exactly what’s required for a magnificent party out at sea, and have previously invited Chris Lorenzo, Camelphat, Disciples and more to stand at the decks on deck.  

Do Not Sleep – Cuckoo Land
Ibiza Rocks Hotel
Sunday 21st May - Sunday 24th September
Having got underway in 2017 on Sunday 21st May, Do Not Sleep is already in the midst of its most exciting season yet. Held at the exceptional Ibiza Rocks Hotel, Do Not Sleep presents Cuckoo Land makes use of years of networking by founder and resident DJ Darius Syrossian to bring in a mouthwatering set of lineups, including Max Chapman, Mihalis Safras, Sonny Fodera, Josh Butler and more.

Monza Ibiza Records
Privilege Ibiza
8th & 22nd June

Packing tunes with more kick than a super-charged V8, Monza Records Ibiza set up for two special shows at Privilege Ibiza in June. Laying down the rubber in musical form will be Dennis Cruz and Darin Epsilon, backed a range of label associates complete with a finely tuned record collection.

11th June - 24th September
Privilege Ibiza

Sundays at Privilege will most certain not be a day of rest. Taking control for a mammoth 17 consecutive weeks, Coyu and his inimitable Sura concept will carry the party well into Monday morning with a flair and flamboyance found only on The White Isle.
