Katy’s Ibiza Diary: Preparations
I’ll admit it, I’d be the last person to describe myself as a party girl. I’ve been known to take a nana nap on any given occasion – once in a lively Spanish bar (the shame!).
But here we are, with two days to go and half a suitcase packed … I’m going to the mecca of dance, Ibiza with a little help from the Ticketmaster Ibiza Nation site.
Preparation is everything!
It’s an experience I’ve been waiting a long time for and finally the flights are booked; the villa is waiting for us. All we have to think about now are the clubs we want to go to and of course the most stressful part… what to wear!
Where to go? What to do?
Having little to no knowledge about the clubbing scene out there I have invested all my faith in my Ibiza veterans out there, 3 of who I will be on the holiday with.
Luckily I am also surrounded by people at work who have created the wonderful Ticketmaster Ibiza Nation party planer site that summarises all the club nights on whilst we are there – so we only have to look in one place to see everything. It’s a great guide for people like me who don’t know Ibiza all that well.
We’re only there for seven days, so knowing we can’t do EVERYTHING 🙁 we’ve whittled the wish list down to these special nights.
When? Every Saturday until end of September
What: The theme for this night is 70’s DISCO! Basically a MAD FANCY DRESS party complete with bonkers inflatables. Let’s think disco balls, afros and glitter … so much glitter!
Space is celebrating its 27th anniversary this year so will be pulling out all the stops to be bigger and better than ever before.
When? Every Sunday until mid October
What: I’ve been told that Solomon is guaranteed to play an incredible set, funky tunes and disco beats. We’ll be able to dance our socks off all while admiring the ever so glam Pacha dancers and enjoying the amazing ice blasts. Mr Frosty eat your heart out.
Flower Power at Pacha in 2015
When? Every Tuesday until mid September
What: It’s the main man’s final ever season in Ibiza and we hope to get our Carl Cox tickets for what is going to very special. Never one to be shy of throwing a great party in or out of Ibiza, Carl Cox is sure to be on form. Can’t wait to raise a glass to the legendary DJ and wish him a fond farewell!
AXWELL / INGROSSO (Swedish House Mafia)
When? Every Wednesday, closing party on 7th September
What: Beach party vibes and an open air stage at Ushuaia – we all love a day time dance! It also finishes in time to get the 8 hours in (or not).
One-third of the Swedish House Mafia, still the same right? When the sun goes down the venue hosts the most amazing light show, making this a truly unforgettable Ibiza memory.
Let’s do this!
Those 4 nights should get our week in The White Isle started the right way. We’ll decide where to end our week once we get there.
Our group has been on holiday together several times before but never to Ibiza as a group.
WOW THE NERVES … THE EXCITEMENT … the sunsets … the views … I feel like I’m about to make some memories!
But for now, its back to work. With an Ibiza Spotify playlist in the background – obviously!
