Everything you need to know about Clockwork Orange 2023

The 30th birthday celebrations are non-stop.

Named after Kubrick's cinematic masterpiece, Clockwork Orange started on home soil in the UK in 1993. Gatecrashing Ibiza a year later, it reigned at Es Paradis between 1994 and 1999, but a lifestyle of excess halted things on the stroke of the Millennium.

Reformed and recovered, a refocused Danny Gould brought Clockwork back to Ibiza alongside Andy Manston with a triumphant return in 2014. Ever since the Orange Army has returned every summer for an extended weekend across multiple locations - and it brings its loyal crowd with it.

2023 marks 30 years of Clockwork Orange, so the band is being fired-up - quite literally.

With so much crammed into the six-day jolly, we have compiled this handy round-up.


Wednesday 19 July to Monday 24 July


Wednesday 19 July

Café del Mar, Sunset Strip, San Antonio

Join Danny, Andy and the rest of the orange army in front of the rocks at one of the most iconic sunset bars in the world.

This curtain-raiser is set to feature a very special surprise (not to mention a bit of a preview) for the final descent of the sun, so make sure you are there for sundown. Sun sets at 21:16 CET on this date so be there no later than 21:00.
