Best Ibiza Themed Parties and How To Recreate Them
It will have escaped no one’s attention that Ibiza is one of the best party islands in the world. With a reputation for being 'the' crazy party island, Ibiza is well known for hosting some of the best summer themed parties in Europe and to be the summer residence of famous DJs like David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren and Sven Vath, to name a few. You'll also find some of Hollywood's hottest celebrities flying to its shores for the summer party season.
The renowned DJs mentioned above are some of the luxury hosts of the most famous Ibiza themed parties, top summer events attended by both Spanish and international celebrities and other VIP guests. These Ibiza theme nights have a reputation for being fun and extravagant - any party animal’s dream come true. But what if you’re not attending the Mediterranean island this summer? That doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t organise and enjoy a proper themed summer party wherever you are. Let’s summarise this party island's top summer events and how to recreate a Spanish Ibiza party that will rival the originals.
Ibiza: from a peaceful refuge to a crazy party island
There are many highly attended summer festivals and parties around the world, but there are few as famous as the Ibiza theme nights. This Mediterranean paradise started off as a route to escape the restrictions of the Spanish dictatorship in the 60s and, since then, it has become one of the best party islands in the world. The island enjoys a well-deserved fame, and not only thanks to the Ibiza theme nights, but also to other daytime festivals and celebrations.
From the 60s onwards, Ibiza has been a refuge for the hippie movement, a place where free thought and expression reigned. From then until now, parties and other events are held on the island’s beautiful beaches and other outstanding locations. When you visit this paradisiacal corner of the Mediterranean, it’s impossible not to find locals' and visitors’ energy and enthusiasm highly contagious and not to be captivated by the beauty of nature around you.
However, the so-called Ibiza invasion turned the island into a party destination. All the nightclubs and bars that today are ‘must see’ venues for party animals have transformed Ibiza’s carefree atmosphere into something more sophisticated. In this new environment, celebs and visitors from all over the world enjoy some of the best known themed parties in the Mediterranean. But what about those not so fortunate to visit the island? That’s not a problem because there are many ways to host a themed summer party in the purest Ibizan style.
The most famous of Ibiza themed parties
According to party experts like Brasilio de Oliviera, this is the most authentic Ibiza themed party and one of the island's longest running. This night celebration is all about pushing boundaries and features DJs, eccentric themed characters and showgirls of all styles. DJ Oliver always leads this party where there is plenty of house music, extravagant costumes and people hungry for a party. This year, La Troya comes back to Space and, as every year, it runs from June 1 to September 28.
Matinee is another example of extravagance. It’s one of the most attended parties by those with the most eccentric tastes. DJs always fuse techno-house music to create an atmosphere that packs dance floors, whilst burlesque and themed dancers perform shows that you can only witness if you attend this party. Matinee is a summer festival and party that can be attended both during the day and during the night. It’s an ode to hedonism that all visitors must see at least once in a lifetime. Matinee is held in the famous nightclub Amnesia every summer.
This is probably one of the parties with the highest budget, besides having an international reputation. The fact that it is a well-known celebration beyond Spanish borders is something SuperMatxe owes to Paris Hilton, who recorded a promotional video to publicise this event. Described by many as ‘the world’s best party’, every year its theme changes, which means guests can enjoy different and diverse spectacles each time they visit the island party. This amazing party features the best nightclub entertainers: from burlesque artists, LED dancers, fire and circus performers to technology shows, this Ibiza theme party never disappoints. Privilege is the nightclub chosen for this famous party in Ibiza.
The foam party in Amnesia (one of the Ibiza's best clubs) is already a classic. Music, fun and foam: the perfect trio. This party usually combines different types of music, although mainly rock music is played. This celebration is famous because of its electric atmosphere and the beautiful promotional girls and dancers that encourage party-goers to get on the dance floor. And of course, who wouldn’t like to be freshened up with cool foam and water during a hot Ibiza night? This party has it all! The foam party is a classic at Amnesia nightclub.
F*** Me I’m Famous
For those who enjoy techno-house dance rhythms, this is your party. Do you also love David Guetta? Then this is definitely an event to attend. F*** Me I’m Famous is one of the celebrations that has contributed the most to the island’s well-deserved fame. Its secret? Good music. There’s nothing beyond that. This night party is held in Pacha, one the best Ibiza clubs and also a classic in other parts of the world.
Ibiza is a hot place, especially in summer. If foam wasn’t refreshing enough, then the Water Party at Es Paradis is the party to attend. This event is a legendary party in which getting wet is a key requirement, and the dance floor quickly becomes a swimming pool. This party takes place twice a week during summer and it’s one of those events any kind of visitor in Ibiza can enjoy.
Flower Power Party
Let us not forget Ibiza was once the island refugee of a large number of Spain's 'hippie' population. Their spirit still haunts the island, so it is not surprising that the Flower Power Party at Pacha is one of the most eagerly awaited events by many and is attended by many celebs. It is also the perfect occasion to take part in some fancy dress! The music, of course, is all about the 60s and 70s, especially rock classics.
