Each summer, thousands of party-goers flock to the island to enjoy the Balearic beat in some of the biggest and most famous dance clubs in the world. The ones below helped define Ibiza’s party spirit and are true institutions of the dance scene.

A more recent addition to the Ibiza party scene, DC-10 is perhaps best known for its world-famous Circoloco nights. When the club first opened its doors in 2000, the Circoloco party would start off at 6am on Mondays, just in time to welcome party-goers finishing up the night across the road at Space. Within a few years the club had built up a reputation for playing underground DJs and was also considered a stronghold for the then emergent minimal-techno genre. Despite many attempts by local authorities to shut the club down, many of which proved successful, the club reopened in 2010 and both Circoloco and the Wednesday night Paradise party are still going strong.

6. Hï Ibiza

Rumours abound that Ushuaïa Entertainment’s newest venture Hï Ibiza, risen from the ashes of Space, may well take the crown for being the most technologically advanced superclub in the world. Pushing the opening season in 2017 is Davide Squillace, a Barcelona-based DJ and producer, known globally for stretching the frontiers of fusing music and the visual arts together in his sets. With appearances from Roger Sanchez, Armand Van Helden, Todd Terry, Horsemeat Disco, Deadmau5, Pete Tong and Louie Vega to name a few, this is without doubt the hottest dance floor to strut your stuff on this year.
