If you can’t get to Ibiza in the summer, a great time to go is at the end of May. Anytime before this, it’s pretty much a ghost town when it comes to partying, but if you are looking to relax then it’s highly recommended.
If you are looking to party like most of our clients are then we recommend getting to Ibiza around May 21st. The weather in May is incredible. It’s hot, but not too hot and there are some incredible parties in store for that week. Below is a rundown of everything we recommend:
Ibiza Music Summit 2014
The Grand Finale of Ibiza’s very own music business conference, the International Music Summit (IMS), is one of the most unique parties in the world. Taking place at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Dalt Vila, high above Ibiza Town, the location is quite simply breathtaking and unlike any other in the electronic music world.
2012 saw Carl Cox, Loco Dice, Seth Troxler and more performing while 2013 Sven Väth, Solomun and Maya Jane Coles were the headliners. 2014 line ups will be announced soon – we at Spotlight can’t wait for this year’s edition.
This is one party you will not want to miss, acting as the official/unofficial start of the season, you can roll from Dalt Vila down the hill towards Sankeys double header openings, Ushuaia, Space and DC10 openings – we challenge you to find a better weekend of music. The closing parties of the summit are set for May 22 & 23.
Ibiza May 2014 Club Openings:
Sankeys Opening (May 21 & 22):
Spread out over two nights, clubbers get an amazing taster of what to expect at Sankeys in 2014. The first night on Wednesday 21st May is Tribal Sessions, headlined by no other than the legend that is Danny Tenaglia and joined by an army of comrades such as Darius Syrossian, Enzo Siragusa, Greg Vickers, Shlomi Aber, Sidney Charles, Jozef K, Dave Rosario and more yet to be announced.
The second part, happening on Thursday 22nd May, sees VIVa head honcho Steve Lawler, Hot Since 82, Amine Edge & Dance, Andrea Oliva, Finnebassen, The Element, Miss Soulfly and more DJs still to be confirmed gracing the decks in Sankeys Basement, L.A.B. and Spektrum.
Ushuaia Opening (May 24)
Ushuaïa Ibiza kicks off its 2014 season on Saturday 24th May. The Ushuaïa Hotel (Club and Tower) is open from 1st of May onwards.
This huge outdoor venue has grown in popularity over the years, resembling more a boutique festival environment than a club atmosphere, and now the opening party is a heavy fixture on the clubbing calendar. We’re talkign next level production from the main stage and the pool area akin to a major concert or festival. Ice cannons, lasers, stage performers and acrobats… all accompanied by what will surely be a massive lineup filled with artists they love and who they will be working with over the season.
Space Opening (May 25)
The Space Opening party is considered by most on the island to be the signal that the clubbing season has started as it forms the jewel of a wild weekend of parties. With IMS, Ushuaïa, Sankeys and DC10 all enjoying huge parties on the same weekend for their openings (or the Grand Finale closing in IMS’ case!) you need to be in this for the long haul!
DC 10 Opening (May 26)
Circo Loco is about as DC-10 as DC-10 gets. From humble beginnings in 1999 the Monday party (which still holds down the same weekly slot today) has become one of the most desirable Ibiza has to offer, irresistible to anyone who likes clubbing in its purist form. The Circo Loco opening party for 2014 (which doubles as the DC-10 opening) has been announced for Monday the 26th of May. Line-ups, as usual, are tight under wraps and expected to stay that way until very close to the date.
Fuck Me I’m Famous Opening (May 29)
David Guetta’s Fuck Me I’m Famous party has been the craziest night in Ibiza for the past 5 years. Every Thursday after May 29th, you will literally see a line out the block.
Privilege Opening (May 30)
The opening of Privilege always attracts the people of the beautiful island and the venue in its various incarnations has hosted successful parties for many years. They’ve got a lot of friends, which of course they need to fill the cavernous interior.
In 2014 the opening party falls on Friday the 30th of May – put it in your diary clubbers!
There is no info available yet on the DJ line up – we will update as soon as we know more. But the show elements and the podium dancers are guaranteed show stoppers whether it is because of their stunning beauty or their weird yet enticing outfits, so you should definitely check out Privilege Opening party if you’re on the island around that date!
Amnesia Opening (May 31)
The Opening (and Closing) Parties at Amnesia are renowned for their energy and longevity; we might have mentioned them once or twice over the years…
In 2014, Amnesia is opening on Saturday 31st May, which means the earliest date ever for their opening party.
The Main Room line up is already out and includes an amazing selection of the moment’s hottest tech house and techno artists: Maya Jane Coles, Adam Beyer, Joris Voorn, Scuba, Kölsch and Amnesia resident DJ Les Schmitz will be bringing you aural pleasantries galore.
The famous Terrace will obviously also be open – but its line up will only be revealed in a second step around mid-Feb.
