Partying hard and enjoying your time in Ibiza? Here’s a list of this weekend’s opening parties you should never miss.
EVERY year, with the arrival of the spring, Ibiza wakes up from its winter slumber – attracting tourists from all over the world. The last couple of years have been tough for everyone – no vacations, no festivals, nothing. Ibiza is known as a party island and famous for its nightlife, but because of COVID, Ibiza’s nightlife was lost for a good amount of time.
Finally, after two years Ibiza is back with its festivals to take you to an amazing journey. So, brace yourselves, because this year we’re going to go again, and again, and party non-stop. Here’s DDW’s exclusive round-up of new parties happening in Ibiza that you should not miss.
ELROW | AMNESIA
Ibiza’s crazy party is back with its colourful themes! After three successful seasons at Amnesia, Elrow is back at the club for a total of 19 dates. Renowned for its crazy productions, an abundance of colours, confetti, and astonishing performances, this amazing party is starting every Saturday from May 28 till October 1.
Enjoy your night here with the best Tech House music with a solid lineup. This year we will see appearances from Adam Beyer, Alisha, AmyElle, Chelina Manuhutu, Cloonee, Dan Shake, Detlef, Eats Everything, Fatboy Slim, Franky Rizardo, Hot Since 82, Ilario Alicante, Joris Voorn, Kölsch, Latmun, Meduza, Noizu, Sarah Story, Sidney Charles, Skream, Syreeta and many more.

WOOMOON & STORYTELLERS | COVA SANTA
Cova Santa was one of a few venues that managed to operate last summer – with respect to the government guidelines. Since then, we all have been longing for it to reopen with a proper dancefloor. And now, we finally get the opportunity this weekend, with not only one but two of its flagship parties – Woomoon and Storytellers.
Both parties are overseen by creative entity LunArts, Woomoon will start today May 27, which is also Cova Santa’s opening party, and Storytellers on Sunday, May 29.
This pair of vibrant, theatrical, and immersive parties really captures outdoor Cova Santa in all its glory and will give you a unique experience. Grab your spot here.
