Ibiza 2017 season news roundup ONE

Our first in 2017´s news roundup series. Dig in.

The very fact that we´re gathering our news to bring you a roundup of Balearic nuggets should tell you that we´re inching closer and closer to season 2017. You´ve no doubt already been on a tagging rampage to assemble your crews and have your fiesta options locked in. So, without further ado, here´s roundup numero uno with news from the last two weeks. Get tucked in just in case something BIG has slipped through your radar.


1. Solomun returns to Pacha

It´d be difficult to imagine Sundays at Pacha without Solomun at the helm, so it´s just as well our Balkan chief is back for his fifth year in 2017. Solomun +1 will be reclaiming its position from 28 May through to 15 October.

3. ANTS confirms season dates

Content with its solid reputation as one of Ibiza´s best fiestas for underground tunage, this winter was the time for the colony to expand, and with stopovers in Mexico, London, Dubai and Hong Kong, it´s safe to say that its mission has been accomplished. While ANTS might have been bitten by the travel bug, would it be anywhere else other than Ibiza this summer? Not a chance. You´ll find the colony at Ushuaïa every Saturday from Saturday 3 June through to Saturday 30 September.

4. Black Coffee confirmed as first Hï Ibiza resident

All eyes are on Hï Ibiza this year as we build up to its debut season in 2017. We´ve all been speculating on what Ushuaïa Entertainment will be pulling out the bag, and there´s no shying away from how difficult a task it is to follow on from Space´s legacy. However, with Black Coffee being the first name confirmed as a summer resident, it´s looking pretty peachy over at the new Playa d´en Bossa superclub. You´ll find the South African house don in the Saturday slot every week from 3 June to 30 September.

6. The Zoo Project´s boat party, Noah´s Ark, releases summer dates

We´re not living in fear of a global flood capsising our summer, but we are getting a little biblical with The Zoo Project´s boat party, Noah´s Ark. As the official pre-party you´ll be taken on a trip atop the Med, round the magical islet of Es Vedrà, all while being entertained in true Zoo fashion by bendy-legged zebras and pirouetting penguins (humans dressed as said animals, just so you're not disappointed). And of course, an underground selection of tunes provided by Zoo regulars. The Ark will set sail every Saturday from 17 June to 23 September.

10. Maceo Plex is in for round two at Pacha

If you weren´t sweating through one of Carl Cox´s last final sessions at Space, it´s likely that you were sounding out Maceo Plex´s first artist-led residency in Ibiza, Mosaic. And if your ears take rather kindly to brooding, guttural techno, we´d suggest that you left Pacha feeling quite happy with yourselves. He was some of last year´s biggest news, and he´ll be back in for another scorcher from 30 May through to 3 October.
