Day Time is the New Night Time in Ibiza

In a monumental shift of clubbing trends, daytime is the new time night in Ibiza this summer it seems.

Instead of the late night / early morning hot sweaty Super Club environment with the top name DJs taking to the decks at 4am it seems the open air daytime venue is truly the place to be seen in 2017.

Ushuaia and Ocean Beach have been offering daytime into the evening events for the past few years but in a throwback to the early days of Ibiza where you could dance in the open air at the Super Clubs at 8am Ibiza Rocks are taking it a step further.

In 2016 they hosted their first big named pool party with Craig David TS5 on Sundays running throughout the afternoon and it was simply massive being one of the hottest tickets in Ibiza.

This year will see Ibiza Rocks focus even more on daytime events bringing some of the biggest names in Ibiza into the daylight for the first time.

We asked CEO and Founder of Ibiza Rocks Group Andy McKay about this change of trend

He said “When I was in my early 20s, having a photo taken at 4am a little worse for wear in a club was a badge of honour but it’s not now.

People want sexy and slick selfies at 4pm looking great in their swimwear. The culture has shifted and as a response what we’ve found is the daytime economy in Ibiza is just getting bigger in terms of entertainment.

What you’re seeing now is the night clubs in Ibiza are less important than they were 10 years ago. The post-midnight economy is less than it was back then.

It started off with the Ibiza Rocks slot of 7pm – midnight, and that has hugely transformed the game.

But what we’re now seeing is the ‘new slot’ and it’s all about the daytime pool parties. 1pm9pm, before you go out for dinner… that is the new economy of Ibiza.”
