Pyramid Carry On | Cova Santa | Monday, August 15
Pyramid is all about the music, the energy, and dancing till the sun comes up. It's the kind of party that Ibiza does best. The Amnesia mega club has been home to the Chilean-born German-based minimal techno pioneer Ricardo Villalobos for more than 20 years, and he usually makes a few appearances in Ibiza under its roof.
Since its sister venue Cova Santa opened its doors, Villalobos has also carried out daytime sets, usually as an afterparty. Everybody knows that it’s going to be a party when Ricardo Villalobos is involved. The Pyramid party begins at Amnesia Ibiza on Sunday night and keeps going with Ricardo going b2b with Luciano and special guests to kick off the week

Elrow outdoors | Ushuaïa | Wednesday, August 17
The second of three absurdly fun outdoor rendezvous at Ushuaïa this summer is happening mid-week this Wednesday afternoon.

The DJs in charge of this evening are Wade, Cloonee, Tini Gessler, and Amedeo Picone. They will keep you dancing non-stop between confetti explosions, giant inflatables, dancers, acrobats, and stilt walkers.
Ushuaïa and elrow together will bring their electric daytime energy for an epic party on the shores of Playa d’en Bossa. Discover your most folkloric side with the elrow family and the best crowd! Book tickets to elrow at Ushuaïa this Wednesday!
Thursdays with Rhadoo | Ibiza Underground Club | Thursday, August 18
Radu Bogdan Cilinca, aka Rhadoo, is a Romanian DJ and producer associated with both DC10 and Cocoon in Ibiza. He was one of the first artists to fly the flag for electronic music in Romania, making his debut as a DJ in 1995 at Club A and Studio Martin in Bucharest.
Radu (often accompanied by Raresh, Petre Inspirescu, and always supported by Ricardo Villalobos) has brought the Romanian sound known as rominimal—Romania’s answer to underground minimal techno—to the island, a style of music that has gained much recognition in recent years. Rhadoo and his unannounced guests focus entirely on musical storytelling with sounds that go from deep house to uplifting and seductive techno. Get more info and guestlist for Ibiza Underground.
