What's on in Ibiza August 2019

August marks the peak of the summer season, which means that there are endless opportunities for fun and enjoyment in every visit to the White Isle. This month, Ibiza is entranced with vibrant energy as an electric atmosphere fills the island with joy. 

From fantastic festivals to local fiestas, there are plenty of things to keep you occupied this month. Add fantastic weather and dreamy blue skies, and the island transforms into a captivating paradise. With a wealth of options on offer, we give you the events which are not to be missed in Ibiza this August.

Epic music

The world-famous BBC Radio 1 Weekend returns to Ibiza from August 2nd to 3rd, bringing some of the biggest names in electronic music to the island. This year, there will be a spectacular pool party at Ibiza Rocks hosted by dance champions Annie Mac and Danny Howard. It is also well recommended to head over to the party at the iconic Cafe Mambo, who this year celebrates 25 years in business and will be headlined by some extra special guests during the epic weekend.

Traditional fiestas

The island is synonymous with its local fiestas, where unique experiences are created for the community in a celebration of their deeply respected history and traditions. This month, Ibiza Town pays homage to its local patrons of Santa María and Sant Ciriac with two weeks of live music, markets, sports competitions, traditional dances, parades, children's activities and fireworks.

Secret treasures

For those that want to escape the hot weather and the crowds, the island’s hippy markets offer a welcome respite. In addition to Las Dalias in San Carlos and Benirras in San Miguel, Punta Arabí stands as one of the largest and most authentic markets in Ibiza. With over 500 stalls and 40 years of history, the popular market embodies the very essence of Ibiza and its signature hippy vibe.

Outdoor cinemas

The island’s heavenly nights are transformed with wonder at extraordinary open-air cinemas. Cinema Paradiso, Ibiza’s original movie curators, bring classic, cult and contemporary movies throughout August. In an exclusive screening experience under the starry sky, guests can sit back and enjoy the magical ambience of Dalt Vila. There are also four fantastic screenings throughout August at Dorado Ibiza Suites and Paradiso Art Hotel in their ‘Cinerama’ series which takes place by the glorious Mediterranean sea.

Beach parties

Global brand Nikki Beach was founded 20 years ago in a secret spot in Miami as a garden cafe in honour of the owner's daughter, Nicole, who sadly perished in a car accident when she was only 18. Two decades later, its world-famous beach parties are celebrated all around the globe. We're lucky enough to have a Nikki Beach on the White Isle where, in true Nikki-Beach-style, they're going to pull all the stops to celebrate these 20 years on August 7th. In addition to delicious cocktails and champagne, guests will savour exceptional food and enjoy otherworldly musical performances.
