On Saturday 27th of May, Amnesia will bring electronic music lovers from all over the world together. It’s probably one of the most symbolic clubs for the Ibiza openings 2017. They start their season with their Music On opening party with Marco Carola, Claptone, Erick Morllo any many more.,On the 29th of May legend Sven Väth is follwing with the Cocoon opening party. Hyte will take place from the 31st of May with Loco Dice, Tiga and Pan Pot.

The big opening party on the other hand will be on the 27th of May with Paul Kalkbrenner. We will be excited of all following parties hosted by David Guetta, Martin Garrix and KYGO this Ibiza summer season 2017.

DINNER & ENTERTAINMENT EXPERIENCE
Heart Ibiza, a live dinner experience, will be opened from the 26th of May on. This creative partnership between Cirque du Soleil and the Adrià brothers show us what happens when music, art ad food collide. And this year they start the season with three big names of the island, Sven Väth, Acid Pauli and Guy Laliberté. On Sundays, Bedouin will take over the night with his very own line- up at ‘SAGA’. We are already awaiting the opening of the most avant-garde club Ibiza has to offer.
Set in the heart of the Marina, Lio is opening its exclusive doors on the 26th of May with Sebastian Gamboa’s ‘Vintage’. This beautiful venue with it’s amazing view of the Ibiza port is the place to see and to be seen every summer season. It combines dinner & cabaret in a very intimate atmosphere with the highest standard. Don’t miss the party after, celebrating with the tunes of Jean Claude Ades and other special guests. Lio is a must for every Ibiza summer.
Pacha’s Destino Hotel is opening on the 28th of April for its 5th Ibiza season. They will celebrate the start of the season though on the 21st first Guy Gerber’s ‘RUMORS’. The outdoor event will take place until midnight and continue in their very own intimate underground club ‘Tox Club Privé’. We are looking forward to another great summer season dining & celebrating under the stars with Luciano and many others at this beautiful venue.
NEW & NOTEWORTHY
IMS @ DALT VILA & HARD ROCK
The International Music Summit on the 26th of May is already seen as the unofficial start of the Ibiza openings 2017. The summit will take place in the Hard Rock Hotel and the party on top of the UNESCO site Dalt Vila, an incredible venue with amazing views of Ibiza town. The line up is always epic, this year we will celebrate with Maceo Plex, Tale of Us, Seth Troxler Dixon, The Martinez Brothers and many more. Our recommendation is to have dinner before at the new restaurant ‘Tatel Ibiza‘ at the Hard Rock. The stylish eatery was founded in Miami by Rafael Nadal, Enrique Iglesias and Paul Gasol and opened its doors in Ibiza for the first time last week.
SAGA @ HEART
This summer we are super excited about Heart’s newest Sunday event ‘SAGA’. With their Ibiza opening party on the 4th of June, Bedouin will take over the famous Sunday night. With a new sound system and the outstanding video projections, they will create a magical experience without doubt.

Already confirmed are Damian Lazarus, DJ Koze, Guy Gerber, Lee Burridge, &Me, Adam Port, Nu, Satori, Guy Laliberte, Stavroz, Lum, Oceanvs Orientalis and Yokoo. We can’t wait for the 4th of June when Sundays become our favorite days.
ACID SUNDAYS @ LAS DALIAS
One of the most characteristic event of the island is moving its set up and sound to Las Dalias this summer. Their Ibiza opening 2017 will take place on the 21st of May and starts during the day. The very authentic location is usually well- known for their hippie market. Acid Pauli, known for his transcending traditional house sounds will host this party from noon to midnight. Of course there is no Acid Sunday without the symbolic performances reflecting the Ibiza free spirit we are already looking forward to. And for those who want to keep on dancing after midnight, they can head straight to Heart to Bedouins ‘SAGA’.
