"Papa" Sven is coming to San Carlos' famous hippy hangout for a very special, highly intimate open-to-close set.

Part of his Catharsis album tour, he'll start outside on Las Dalias terrace in the evening. Later, things will move inside to Akasha club until 05:00. Hearing Sven play his vinyl on this superb sound system is an opportunity not to be missed.

A very limited batch of tickets is now on sale, but move quickly. For those missing out, an allocation of tickets will be held back for the door at a higher price.

Put on your best 80s' garb and check out this free open-air dance and music extravaganza on the beach at Platja de s’Arenal in San Antonio from 21.00 onwards.

Ibiza Town: Fiestas of San Ciriaco and fireworks

31 July-15 August

With an action-packed programme combining music, tradition, modernity, sports and activities for adults and children alike, this year's edition has great appeal. The main celebrations take place on 5 August, the day of the Virgin Mary, to honour Nuestra Señora de las Nieves (Our Lady of the Snows) and 8 August, when San Ciriaco, Ibiza Town's patron saint is commemorated.

Whatever else you attend, make sure you don't miss the spectacular the fantastic firework display best viewed from Ibiza's port at midnight on 8 August.

San Bartolome Fiesta in San Antonio

9 August-2 September

Rivalling Ibiza Town's annual festivities in August, San Antonio's Fiesta of San Bartolome is another event you won't want to miss.

Activities include traditional Ibiza folk dancing near the fountains and performances of live music, but the undoubted must-see is the spectacular firework display at midnight on 24 August

The Perseid meteor shower aka San Lorenzo's Tears

12-13 August

Stargazers wishing to witness one of the year's most impressive meteor showers should definitely put this one in their diary and take advantage of Ibiza's clear skies. Although the fact they coincide with this month's full moon means the shower won't be as visible as in other years. Anyway, get your flask of cocoa, something comfy to sit or lie on, find somewhere with little light pollution and look to the north to make the most of this awesome astronomical phenomenon.  

Eivissa Jazz

29 Aug-03 September

A must for fans of jazz, Eivissa Jazz returns with a programme that promises more concerts, activities, and locations this year.
