La Troya Opening Party at Octan | June 1
La Troya has been a legendary Ibiza night for more than three decades. Beging as a hot spot for the island's gay community, it soon became a must-visit for an audience of all sexual orientations, races, and ages with an anything-goes spirit. It all started as “La Vaca Asesina” at KU club (now known as Privilege) then it relocated to Amnesia, a few years later moved to Space, and ended at Heart Ibiza prior to the pandemic.
This party has always been a successful night with the most diverse and joyful of crowds. This season La Troya lands in Octan for the first time to spread magic every Wednesday night starting on June 1st. Expect scandalous dancers, feathers, lasers, electrifying beats, hot house, and catchy rhythms accompanied by the most colorful show.

Las Dalias Night Market | Sunday-Tuesday in June
One of Ibiza’s main attractions is visiting a hippie market. Dating back to 1985 and located in the heart of San Carlos, Las Dalias is the oldest one of its kind on the island. It opens every Saturday during the day and during the summer season, it presents a more relaxed version from 7 pm on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays with exclusive stalls (some of them different from the ones at the classic Saturday market).
Worldwide artisans, designers, and painters present their unique art at Las Dalias, where you can also find handicrafts made in Ibiza. More than a hundred stands offer distinctive artifacts, exclusive vintage, and colorful fashion or jewelry. Stroll around accompanied by live music and grab something to eat or drink from a variety of food trucks, or sit at Las Dalias café and restaurant and taste delicious Mediterranean cuisine. The market was around when the café opened in 1954 and it has been a real meeting point for different cultures and free-spirited people since then.
