Earth Festival Ibiza

In a triumph of coordination, Ibiza council has organised a big festival programme

In a triumph of coordination, Ibiza council has organised a big festival programme -Fiesta de la Tierra – around three big public holidays coming up in August. We all get a day off work on 5th, 8th and 15th August which will give us a chance to get out and about to enjoy the concerts, fireworks, and sporting events due to take place.

This year we're also celebrating the 800th anniversary of the birth of King Jaume I, in whose reign Ibiza was reconquered by the Christians. (Read more here: History of Ibiza and Formentera)
