Best open-air daytime venues for 2019

Because not everyone is a night owl.

Not all Ibiza nightlife has us turning into nocturnal animals. In fact, you can party your time away whilst still retaining your usual sleeping pattern. Damage limitation at its finest. Horah!

Open-air daytime parties offer the feel-good festival-like atmosphere that summer is all about. We've compiled a list of some of the best open-air venues this season. Daytime ravers, who is up for a mid-afternoon dance?


For fun-loving vibes to get you in the holiday spirit, Ibiza Rocks Hotel is the place for you. The self-confessed "home of the pool party" is the perfect place to indulge in some pool party antics. Its 360-degree centre stage and newly refurbished poolside and VIP areas make Ibiza Rocks one of San Antonio's coolest outdoor venues.

The hotel accommodates some fantastic daytime parties such as MK's Area 10, the madness of Rudimental & Friends, and the favourite Craig David TS5 Pool Party, which continues to smash ticket sales.


The plush Playa d'en Bossa beach hotel, Ushuaïa is home to some of the most popular parties on the island. Here you'll find David Guetta's BIG, the ever-popular ANTS as well some fresh concepts for 2019 like Nic Fanciulli's DANCE OR DIE.

One thing is for sure, you will be wowed by the incredible production. With The Night League behind it, Ushuaïa boasts some of the most spectacular production on Ibiza. On top of the brilliant artist playing, light shows, confetti cannons, smoke machines and CO2 showers make sure each party is as epic as the last.

The gorgeous Destino Pacha Resort has become the unsuspecting home of some pre-weekend activities in recent years. Dance the evening away with breath-taking views over Ibiza Town whilst soaking up the mesmerising sounds of island-fave Solomun + LIVE for Destinomakers or Music On boss Marco Carola that fill the air.

As Music On made its debut at Pacha this year, along with it came a series of special Music On Daytime parties at the Talamanca beach hotel. These take place on selected Thursday evenings. The residency sees a stellar series of line-ups, including the likes of Marco Carola, Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler and Carl Cox.


The captivating Cova Santa carefully crafts its parties to give you a sense of that Ibizan spirit. Situated at the opening of a cave in the Ibiza countryside, it is a mystical affair.

WooMooN, Shadows, Guardians of EK and more all take up residencies this year. Each concept transforms Cova Santa into a unique atmosphere making it a charming and enchanting place to visit.
