Flying over Ibiza gives you those jitters of excitement that you haven’t felt in a long time — goosebumps, butterflies and shrieks of joy. You turned on your out of office email, over packed your bags and jumped on a flight to celebrate a little bit of freedom this summer. And you and your friends are prepared to let loose in Ibiza.
After arriving on the beautifully wild island, you head to the hostel, drop off your bags and make a game plan to take on Ibiza’s nightlife. But there are so many options! Do you head straight for the largest club in the world? Or party on the beach with Martin Garrix? And how are you supposed to know which club is throwing down a massive party?? We put together a list of the BEST nights out in Ibiza for the 2018 season. Now you’re ready to parrttyyyyy!
Every Tuesday Night At Amnesia
Amnesia is no rookie to throwing epic parties. In its eighth season, Together at Amnesia is showcasing some of the biggest artists every Tuesday night for SIXTEEN WEEKS! Whoop! That’s right, Amnesia is giving you 16 wild and crazy Tuesdays with resident DJs such as Chase & Status, MK, Andy C, Sub Focus, Sigma, Disciples, Wilkinson, Pendulum and My Nu Leng (with more to be announced).
Every Together party incorporates a festival-like atmosphere and an electric vibe. We guarantee you won’t be able to stop dancing once you enter the club. So bring your energy and prepare to headbang to explosive tunes all night long! These weekly parties run until September 18. Check out who’s headlining each Tuesday night here.
One Night Stand With Carl Cox
You’re gonna want to plan for this one: the King of Ibiza, Carl Cox is playing at Amnesia, Pacha and DC10 for one night only. Ahhh! After spending 15 years at Space Ibiza, the Game Over crew (the team responsible for some of the island’s most hyped events) is coming together to give you Ibiza’s first tour. They want to take you back to the early days of clubbing. Think, stripped back, no frills, here-for-the-music type of party.
Each club is putting its own flare on the One Night Stand event. So choose a venue and prepare to get sweaty while partying with Carl Cox (a major bucket list item). Grab tickets here.
Resistance At Privilege
Tuesday seems to be a massive night in Ibiza. Resistance Ibiza is coming to Privilege for a HUGE nine-week residency. From July 17 to September 11, artists such as Adam Beyer, Carl Cox, Dubfire, Eats Everything, Jamie Jones, Joseph Capriati, Loco Dice, Maceo Plex, Nicole Moudaber, Paco Osuna, Pan-Pot, Richie Hawtin, Sasha, John Digweed and Seth Troxler will take the stage at the world’s largest club.
Dress in your best festival attire and bring your energy. This electric experience is full of thumping beats and custom production (think mind-blowing light shows and epic entertainment). Pro tip: If you’re in Ibiza Tuesday, July 31, Carl Cox is celebrating his birthday at Privilege. How rad! Purchase tickets here.
Martin Garrix Every Thursday Night At Ushuaia
Ushuaia is Ibiza’s massive open-air club that hosts legendary ragers with some of the BIGGEST names in electronic dance music. During the 2018 season, Kygo, David Guetta, Dystopia and ANTS will be throwing down the beats on a weekly basis. But every Thursday night (until August 30), one of the best DJs in the world takes the stage and you won’t want to miss it.
Martin Garrix takes over Ushuaia every Thursday night, giving the crowd an insane light show, unreal beats and an unforgettable performance. This will make your trip to Ibiza worth it. Snag tickets here.
Tuesdays On Mars At Pacha
You can’t deny a party at Pacha. The nightclub has been hosting some of the best parties in Ibiza since 1973. Following a grand re-opening, Pacha is giving you Tuesdays On Mars. This space-like concept wants to show you how Ibiza is a planet of its own.
World-renowned artists such as Alesso, Calvin Harris, FatBoy Slim and Martin Solveig will be headlining the event until October 2. Check out Pacha’s calendar here to see if you’ll be around for one of these spacey Tuesday nights. Bonus points if you dress the part (think out-of-this-world, galaxy attire). It’s gonna get weird. If you’re around, make sure to see Calvin Harris take the stage at Pacha August 14, 21 and 28.
Defected At Eden
Sunday Funday is real at Eden. The San Antonio superclub is giving you Defected every Sunday night until October 7. The theme of the party is “in our house everyone is equal” with a goal to bring people together through house music. We can get behind that!
Headliners include DJ Haus, Sam Divine, Claptone and Josh Butler (plus, wayyyyyy more). Eden is known for its impressive sound system and underground beats, so you know this is gonna be one hell of a party. Grab tickets to Defected here.
