Ibiza Opening Parties 2018
It is that time of year when everyone looks to the official start of the summer on the island with the Ibiza Opening Parties 2018.
Traditionally held over the last weeks of May the parties herald the start of the main Ibiza party season and give everyone a glimpse of what each club will be offering across the summer.
This year several events have already kicked off their seasons early with the Zoo Project opening last weekend and Pacha celebrating its reopening with the first two of 6 special all night long dates throughout May.
But onto those important opening party dates and lineups and we start with an icon of Ibiza a little bar on the coast in San Antonio where some of the world’s biggest DJ’s perform night after night just as the sun has set.
Kicking off the season with a very special guest Claptone alongside residents Ryan McDermott, Dj Danny O and Jason Bye.
On the terrace will feature Luciano alongside Luca Donzelli and Emanuel Satie.
The night will also feature two sublime back to back sets Richie Ahmed and Davide Squillace and Mathias Kaden and Mar-T.
In the main room DJ EZ, Hannah Wants and Disciples will bring the bass house and garage vibes and Detlef and Latmun will go back to back.
Playing will be Ilario Alicante, Federico Grazzini, Frank Storm, Janina and Rick Maia. The rooftop terrace has a wicked roster for the evening as well. David Moreno and Fabrizio Marra will be DJing back to back. They will be joined by Fell Reis, Stephanie Rosse and Ronald Takeshi with Smythy & Dave will be in the backstage room all night long.
There’s no dipping your toes in where this party is concerned so dive right in and grab a cocktail whilst the spectacular entertainments fly across the sky above you. Expect a whole host of surprises as you dance all day long to the perfect summer soundtrack by all your favourite ocean resident DJs.
