Ibiza

You’ll certainly find such things in plentiful supply here.

You don’t have to go far, however, to discover a world apart from DJs and drinks, where history takes precedence and small villages entice you to relax on a peaceful coastline overlooking the glimmering Med.

Festivals and events

Historical events

Ibiza maintains a strong sense of tradition throughout the year, reflected in annual events that celebrate island history. The first day of March is the Day of the Balearic Islands, celebrating the region’s political autonomy through concerts and parties around Ibiza. The historic centre of Ibiza Town, Dalt Vila, hosts an annual medieval fair in May with re-enactments and street performers filling the flag-lined streets.

Religious festivals

Ibiza’s religious heritage still impacts the calendar too. Come in January to take part in the Three Kings Celebration, when Spaniards traditionally open their presents. Floats parade through the towns and the island takes a day off on Epiphany (06 January).

Holy Week, which leads up to Easter Sunday, is also hugely important here, with a torchlight procession on Good Friday. Each town also celebrates their patron saint throughout the year, such as Santa Eulalia in February and Sant Josep in March.

Party season

Ibiza also has its fair share of far more modern annual events. Ibiza Rocks in June is a gigantic music festival that attracts A-list performers, while the summer season begins with major opening nights in all the biggest clubs.
