Phoenician settlers founded a port in the Balearic Islands in 654 BC, naming it Ibossim, meaning the isle dedicated to Bes. Bes was the god of music, dance, and all things pleasurable, so it’s no surprise that the island, now known as Ibiza, is famous for its insatiable party and music scene.
Every summer, when the island (79 km off the coast of Valencia, Spain) is bathed in summer sun, thousands of tourists flock to Ibiza for its gorgeous beaches, crystal clear waters, and raging nightclub scene. Celebrity DJs and popular musicians from around the world come to the island to perform, often presenting their new material for the first time, typically in the house, trance and techno genres. Whether you like to dance and party, or just soak up the sun, Ibiza has something for everyone.
