Ibiza Rocks - Hard Rock Hotel
Ibiza Selects (August 1– August 7)
Temperatures are rising for what’s typically the hottest month in Ibiza when we like to spend most of our time outside chilling out by the pool or close to the sea breeze—preferably while listening to music and surrounded by happy vibes! And when the night falls, we kick off August with a wide selection of parties to add to your Ibiza calendar.
Desvarian Pool Sessions | Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza | Tuesday, August 2
The best solution to beat the heat takes place every Tuesday at the Platja D’En Bossa Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza. A stylish pool party starring local DJs alongside producer B Jones (née Beatriz Martinez), the first Spanish woman with the rare distinction of performing twice on the central stage at Tomorrowland 2022. B Jones brings her ComeCloser brand and tech house label poolside with two different guests each week. Resident DJs Sita and Hady are paired with some live performances from 3:30 to 8 p.m.
The large freshwater pool at Hard Rock Hotel includes underwater sunbeds from where you can order premium drinks and cocktails. Put on your best swimwear and refresh until sunset! Purchase your ticket or book a Balinese bed for Desvarian at the Hard Rock Hotel.
Exhale by Amelie Lens Opening Party | DC10 | Wednesday, August 3
Belgium techno prodigy Amelie Lens holds a mini-residency at DC10 every Wednesday in August. It’s the first time that Lens has brought her label and party-series brand to the White Island. EXHALE will feature familiar faces from the scene and burgeoning techno talent. The legendary techno god, Richie Hawtin, has praised Lens’ music as “A mix of old and new strong techno records, tough but not hard, fast and throbbing, hypnotic and energized.” While DJing was always her first love, she combined modeling with DJing and production for many years, creating soundtracks for fashion shows during her musical beginnings. Currently, Lens is fully focused on her music career with obsessive attention to detail, thanks to being a self-confessed “control freak,” and is ready to drop strong and acid techno sounds when her contagious energy infects the dancefloor this Wednesday at the EXHALE opening event! Get your tickets for the EXHALE opening party at DC10 this Wednesday.
The Zoo At Ibiza Rocks
The Zoo Project presents Panther | Bora Bora | Thursday, August 4
The Zoo Project was born in Ibiza more than 15 years ago. It became a hugely successful party made for the local Ibiza industry, originating at Benimussa Park (transformed into 528 Ibiza in 2021), located five minutes from Sant Antoni. Hels in an abandoned zoo, dancers and performers, adorned in animal suits create a wild open-air festival atmosphere paired with legit underground music. The 2022 incarnation of the Zoo Project began the season with a new version as a pool party at Ibiza Rocks with “Goes Bananas.” It’s just moved beachside to the legendary Bora Bora with an animal theme of “Panther.” The party begins in the afternoon under the palm trees at the beach club. From 6 p.m. until late, the screens go up, the volume increases, and all the panthers meet on the dancefloor! The beloved party channels a broad spectrum of worldwide sounds ranging from afro to groovy tech house and beyond. Join The Zoo madness this Thursday at the beach! Early bird tickets are available for The Zoo Project this Thursday.
