Explosive finish for the ANTS colony

Top tech house, outdoor poolside vibes and a massive stage show for the final ANTS at Ushuaïa Ibiza.

With five years under their event belt in Ibiza, ANTS shows no sign of slowing their tech house march in dominating Saturdays on the island. The party is a perfect balance of afternoon poolside vibes and evening stage show spectacular hosted in the lush surrounding of the Ushuaïa hotel resort.

Starting as a free staff party, it has now grown to be one of the venue's biggest events, attracting an international crowd in great numbers week after week. Around Ibiza, we often see many sporting the queen ant logo in the form of a t-shirt, hat or pendant (for those lucky enough to hold a season pass). The fans of the event are devout partygoers and are committed to the full day experience, starting from 15:00 and ending at midnight.

The closing of this wicked event was set to be an explosive one with a very special line-up. Eli & Fur, Francisco Allendes and Lauren Lane all played great sets in true ANTS fashion laying down tech bangers in the afternoon sun. As the evening and the stage changeover drew close, we were treated to a back-to-back set with Maya Jane Coles and Kim Ann Foxman. They did not disappoint with their selection of tracks, each one applauded by the loyal fans of ANTS and followed by much raving.

The best part of the event was yet to come, though. As darkness fell, colony maestro Andrea Oliva took to the stage, going b2b with favourite Dutch DJ Joris Voorn. What followed were three hours of tech house slammers, vocal mash-ups and feel-good finishers.

Check out all the went on at the final instalment in pictures below.

During the epic three-hour set by Andrea and Joris, we managed to track down the best tunes that set the dancefloor on fire and raised those arms in elation. We have put them into a 24 song playlist to give your auditory senses a tingle.


Sparks fly as the main stage opens up with a bang.


Hands up if you like ANTS and tech house.

This scene at ANTS in Ushuaia can only be described as monumental.

The ANTS colony has now gone underground and left Ibiza for the season, but they'll almost certainly be back next year for season number six. Keep an eye on our party calendar for details about next year's line-ups.

If you missed this one, no worries. You can always attend the Ushuaïa closing party featuring ANTS dons Andrea Oliva, Francisco Allendes, Joris Voorn and plenty more electronic music aficionados.
