Music and performance

There is a diverse cultural scene on Ibiza, with live concerts and music festivals as well as theatre and other performances.


Live music

You can listen to live music like jazz and blues for free in many bars around the island if you want a break from dance music.

Try Teatro Ibiza or Jazz Tà Bé in Ibiza Town, Es Birrá in Es Caná, the famous hippy market and multi-purpose venue Las Dalias in San Carlos or Can Jordi Blues Station on the road from Ibiza Town to San José.

Many restaurants also offer low-key live music for adding to the atmosphere, whilst others have a full-blown dinner show with music and entertainment

Each town and village also puts on live music bands during the many fiesta celebrations around their patron saints' days.


There are several orchestras on the island that put on concerts of both classical music and interpretations of contemporary themes, for example, from the world of film.

Look out for events from the Ibiza Symphony Orchestra (Orquestra Sinfònica Ciutat d'Eivissa) and the City of Ibiza Big Band (Big Band Ciutat d'Eivissa), which debuted in September 2016 at the Ibiza Jazz Festival.
