Just another summer. Ibiza is working day in and day out so that this isn´t just another summer. And it won't be: just look at the programmes of two of the most renowned venues on the island and, therefore, in the world, bringing together the main events in Ibiza for this 2019 season!
Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel is the name of one of them, and if you've been there before you know that the summer starts and ends with this place... What has been seen and what remains to be seen this summer 2019? There´s plenty to choose from... On 10 June, David Guetta started his traditional BIG party every Monday, and on Sunday 16 June MUCHO IBIZA landed at the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel, with Daddy Yankee at the forefront, proving that Ibiza can be Latina/o. A week later, on June 18th, the Thivaios brothers did the same with their mega show TOMORROWLAND PRESENTS DIMITRI VEGAS & LIKE MIKE.

From Ibizan summer classics to new sensations
The new proposition from The Night League, the production team of Ushuaïa Ibiza, and Nic Fanciulli will be DANCE OR DIE which will bring in some of the most respected names in house and techno music of today. Note: Carl Cox, Paco Osuna, and Acid Mondays are dispersed on Wednesdays from June 19 to September 25. Don't miss the post-apocalyptic and neon atmosphere of this event in Ibiza designed to transform your body, mind, and soul!
Another show you can´t miss is the Swedish House Mafia event, which will arrive on the stage of the world's most awarded Open-air club for a historic show on 26 July. The trio formed by Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello made quite the impression with their performance at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami last year, the world has been hungry for more ever since.
The Ushuaïa Ibiza family continues to make history
Yann Pissenem, the founder of The Night League, the creative company behind Hï Ibiza and Ushuaïa Ibiza, recalls the honour of "being part of such a historic event when we organised the last Swedish House Mafia show on the island in 2012". "It's been a rapid improvement and the whole team is more than excited about their reunion, and we're preparing with all our might to celebrate it in Ushuaia Ibiza this summer," says Pissenem.
Martin Garrix opened his big party on July 4th. For Pissenem, "It's amazing to have Martin back with us for another year. He is an important part of the Ushuaia Ibiza family because artists like Martin help us fulfill our mission of bringing to Ibiza the most coveted sounds in dance music. We have big production plans prepared with a completely new stage design".

Lovers of the 80s, faithful to Fridays

Some of the names for this 2019 season include Ice MC, Dream3team Reload and Puretas Party, and Alphaville, Dream3team Reload and La Movida, among others.
