Ibiza 2016 season news roundup THREE

Line-ups are the main topic of titillation in our third installment, covering the last week of February.

February. A cold month where your heart is warmed by love and the impending sweaty raves on Ibiza, stoked by the constant supply of party announcements. Our party calendar is hotting up indeed, check it out.

But March has finally arrived, in a matter of weeks the clocks will be taking a clockwise leap for summer and we'll be grabbing on to be swooped along with the movement. With March comes a mad rush of announcements loaded with the info that you've been aching for and as we inch closer and closer to the action you can't live without, prepare to be ambushed.

Looking at the last week of February, we contine along the identity parade to point out the heavies soon to be exported to Balearic soil on a mission to make sure we have the kind of good time that conservatives would disapprove of.

Check back at the weekend for this week's news roundUP.
