Things to do this month on Ibiza - September 2018

Our choice picks for the month.

We won't say it. We definitely won't say it. Okay, we'll say it. How is it September, already?

August has been and gone and now this time of the year is when things start to get a little cooler, more relaxed and a little less busy, but still packed full of energy.

The summer season has reached a peak, yet there are still so many things to do. We'll prove it to you with these cool events you can do this month - and this is only nine of them!

Whether you're a clubber, a reader, a beer fanatic, an art aficionado or all of the above, September has arrived and it has something for everyone.

Bless your ears with sounds born by the Mississippi River at the Ibiza Jazz Festival 2018 in the walled citadel of Dalt Villa in Ibiza Town.

live art

8 - 10 September

All things art take over Aiyanna Ibiza early this month for a showcase of culture, fashion and music.

A stunning place complemented by breathtaking masterpieces and live creations. It all ends at the gorgeous Boutique Hostal Salinas on 15 September with a potentially explosive party called Swan Song, with DJs David Phillips, YOUNGIE, Ryan O'Gorman and more.

11 September

One of the biggest events of the season for electronic music fans: RESISTANCE shuts down its spectacular nine-week residency at Privilege.

literature can be cool

11 - 12 September

The famous Ibiza hotel built on hedonism and defined by its intimate parties is doing something a little different from 11-12 September.

Expect absorbing conversation and captivating stories.

dancing for a cause

13 September

Ibiza's clubbing scene comes together for a worthwhile cause during the middle of the month with Wild. The Night League & Music Against Cruelty unite at Ushuaïa to throw one of the biggest parties of the season. Black Coffee, Adam Beyer and many, many more (including an unannounced special guest!) soundtrack the Playa D'en Bossa party. All DJs are contributing their performances for free, with all the event proceeds going towards conservation efforts in Africa. Clubbing with a conscience.
