Ibiza parties around the planet

A bit of Ibiza ahead of the summer.

For all the globe-trotting clubbers out there, this one is for you. As the Ibiza 2020 season comes together before our eyes, the parties that hold residencies here on Ibiza over the summer travel around the world. While nothing beats the real thing, have a look at this collection of the hottest parties on the island as they take a bit of Ibiza to the rest of the globe.

Of course, whichever party you choose, you will get to enjoy only one at a time. To have them all in the same place for an entire season, you have a little while longer to wait until it all kicks off on the White Isle.

After all, only here on Ibiza do you have weekly residencies of all these global superstar parties all summer long. We shall see you in a little over three months.

Meanwhile, if you want to have an idea of what goes on here on the island during the summer, check out these parties around the world.


ANTS

Can't wait for ANTS to kick off again? Check it out at Printworks in London next month. On Saturday 29 February, the colony will be taking over the London warehouse-style nightclub for an unforgettable session.

After a date in Tulum earlier this month, the Ibiza home-made party continues its planetary growth with key players Andrea Oliva, Francisco Allendes, Matthias Tanzmann and Davide Squillace, as well as New York house legend Erick Morillo, to name a few.


Afterlife

Having started here on the island and held residencies at Space, Privilege and most recently Hï Ibiza, Afterlife has meanwhile gone on a global takeover with several dates this winter. Find it in Dubai on 28 February with head honchos Tale Of Us joined by underground royalty Âme, Mind Against, Fideles and more.

The next event for the crème de la crème techno party will take place in São Paulo, Brazil, on Saturday 14 March, but only if you have already bagged yourself some tickets for that one, as it has sold out.


Cocoon

Having recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, Cocoon has been making huge waves by touching down at most of the super-clubs on the island for its milestone year last summer, including Amnesia, Ushuaïa, Benimussa Park and Underground.

After several dates around Europe and beyond in the past few months, the legendary party takes it over to Phuket in Thailand on 1 February. There, Sven Väth, Maurizio Schmitz and many more will be taking you on what cannot but be another epic sonic journey.


Defected

An Ibiza and indeed global favourite, the acclaimed Defected has already announced its Ibiza dates next summer. Besides its season at Eden, the ultimate house party will also be holding its own Defected Ibiza Festival in May coinciding with its opening party weekend. Hell yes.

Meanwhile, if you find yourself in Australia in February, check it out in Brisbane, Melbourne, Freemantle, Adelaide and Sydney or at its pit stop in Auckland, New Zealand for Valentine's Day, followed by Bali on the 16th. The month ends in Amsterdam on the 29th.

March is also quite busy for the Defected team, as it heads over to Naas, Ireland, for St Patricks Day and then a few days later in Miami, holding a pool party during the Winter Music Conference.


elrow

What would we do without elrow? One of the most famous parties on the planet also started on Ibiza, even though the party's colourful history goes way back. Now a global sensation, its tour dates are almost too many to list.

This coming Saturday 25 January it will be in Sydney, followed by Melbourne on 1 February. Mid-month it continues in Peru, then Madrid, Lisbon, Viladecáns close to Barcelona, concluding the month in Rotterdam and Sofia, Bulgaria, which is already sold out.

Then at Easter, elrow descends on London's iconic The Roundhouse. Okuda San Miguel & Paco Osuna present Kaos Garden - the same theme used for elrow's 2019 Ibiza closing party - is on Saturday 11 April.

Here on Ibiza, the party's Ibiza residency dates have also been announced.


Glitterbox

For all-things-disco, the epitome of flamboyance Glitterbox is the party for you. The brainchild of Defected boss Simon Dunmore, this all-embracing party has seduced clubbers of all ages and walks of life, having held residencies at Space and Hï Ibiza.

Worldwide, the sparkling party concept will be in Amsterdam this Saturday 25 January and has an already sold-out show at Printworks in London on Saturday 7 March.


Music On

Another island-favourite, Music On continues to be one of the top techno parties on Ibiza. After a two-day closing party at Pacha last October, the party now readies itself to celebrate its very own techno king Marco Carola.

For Don Marco's birthday, Music On heads to Studio 338 in London on Saturday 8 February, featuring an extended set by Marco himself plus the ultra-talented Archie Hamilton. The event has sold out already but perhaps you are lucky enough to know someone with extra tickets.


Solid Grooves

A favourite amongst island-residents and holidaymakers alike, the UK brand Solid Grooves travels worldwide besides being on Ibiza during the summer season.

The next show will be in Brazil on 7 February, followed by Ritoque, Chile the following Saturday and Torremolinos close to Málaga the final weekend of the month. Make sure to check them out. Solid Grooves co-founders Michael Bibi, Pawsa and Dennis Cruz, plus many more, will take care of those groovy tech-house tunes.


Tomorrowland

One of the top festivals in the world, Tomorrowland is holding its winter edition during the last week of winter in France. Besides its world-famous festival in Belgium during the summer, it has also held a residency at Ushuaïa these past summers.

For its snowy edition, Tomorrowland Winter will hit the slopes of Alpe d'Huez, France from 14 to 21 March. Sounds like a pretty magical adventure to us.


Toolroom

Mark Knight's globally acclaimed Toolroom Records returned to hold its own Toolroom residency at Eden last summer. Having taken place at Space, Amnesia and Eden in the past, it was welcomed with open arms, with its selection of the finest house and techno and an extended family vibe.

This winter, it heads to Berlin on Friday 24 January with Amine Edge & DANCE and Raumakustik, followed by Liverpool with Amine Edge & DANCE, Endor and GW Harrison on Saturday 29 February and the recently announced Nottingham on Saturday 14 March.

The following month, the leading label will take it poolside in Miami for the Toolroom in Stereo Miami Pool Party on 20 March. Finally, Toolroom returns for the big one. Mark Knight and co are back in at Studio 338, London on the 28th.


So enjoy the party, wherever you are in the world. As for Ibiza 2020, it is around the corner. The opening parties for The Zoo Project, Amnesia, Ibiza Rocks and Odyssey - the 24-hour opening party for Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza - are already on the party calendar.

Several promoters have also announced their dates, including Defected, elrow, SHINE, Solomun +1, plus all the Ibiza Rocks Residencies, as well as some one-offs, the likes of Creamfields and the Kevin & Perry Go Large Anniversary party at Amnesia.

More news as we have it.
