Ibiza is a town known for one thing – parties. While getting there is a journey in itself if you are from Australia, experiencing Ibiza during party season is another trip altogether.
Ibiza is tiny in size but jam packed full of entertainment – think the size of Singapore but 100 times the fun. The blissful summer days are spent chill-axing – a mix between chilling and relax-ing – by the pool or the beach or anywhere near water, tanning one’s body, drinking sangria and eating tapas whilst 120 beats per minute music is being played in the background. Many party-goers are recovering from the night before however for me, I have just arrived onto party island – ready, willing and enthusiastic for the big events yet to come. Tonight will be huge, first up starring super-club Amnesia. VIP tickets bought. VIP area reserved.
Thursday nights are pure hotness – the mega-clubs and the mega-DJs are all starring, the ‘to be seen’ crowd are out. Then there’s just us, a handful of aussies who have just flown from in from various parts of the world – just to experience a smashingly great time. We who love EDM live by the rule of “Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat”. If there’s only one night to party on Earth’s big-gest party island, Thursday night it is.
Before we go further, we need to give you a warning. This trip report features a VIP experience. This is not the stuff of a backpacking journey. VIP not only means very important people, it can also mean very inflated pricing. It seems in this case, both meanings apply.
2:00am is perfect timing but those long queues to get in … totally uncool – especially for us VIPs for the night. Let’s skip the queue? tick, An exclusive entrance? tick, Our names on the guest list? tick, and no waiting to get inside? tick. This is what 2,000 eu-ros buys you in Ibiza. It’s straight up to the VIP terrace level; a roped off private area – relaxing sofas, private host, table service, and on-call masseur too – overlooking the DJ booth, the sexy club dancers, the main dance floor and 5,000 party-goers below. Amnesia claims to have the best sound system in any club anywhere in this world – the vibrations from the bass claims to gently massage the insides of your body.
With the main event starting at 2AM, you know its going to be a big event. Throw in some top headline acts, 400 euro bottles of spirits and music that vibrates your soul, and you have the makings of a night to remember. For some of our members however, it might be an experience best left to days when they were younger.
Glad you had a blast. Don’t think I would fit in very well there. It seems the partying is well past my bed time
Party season only runs for a short period of the year in Spain. If you have wondered what Ibiza is like when it goes off, this is a trip report you must not miss. Read it HERE.
