Alternative Open Air Fiestas in Ibiza

Inside the walls of a big club, you could really be anywhere in the world… So aside from the big name beach clubs, where can you party in Ibiza that makes you realize that you are actually there? Alternative venues, i.e. venues that are usually used for other purposes (for example traditional restaurants or markets) often hold one-off or once weekly big parties during the day. Daytime parties are great; you can take advantage of the warm weather and dance in the sunshine, but due to licensing laws, most parties that take place in open-air venues have to turn the music off by 12pm, meaning you can go onto an after party or head home. Here is a list of a few of our favourite alternative open-air parties on the White Isle…

This year there’s big competition for the Sunday night slot, which see’s three big alternative venues (that don’t usually hold parties), put on their only fiesta of the week.
