So much to do and so little time! Panic not fellow reveller! let us help you. .
Firstly, you ideally want to be rocking up on Playa D’en Bossa and indulging each and every daytime, soothing your mind and body from the previous nights antics being gently wooed back into life on Bora Bora beach. In particular plant yourself firmly on a towel in front to of the iconic Bora Bora Beach bar where the steady flow of deep and tech house grooves flow all day, easing you back into life. Before you know it, its 4pm and your waving aloft at low flying aircraft coming in to land over head whilst dancing on a table on the terrace of the bar wearing nothing but a tiny pair of Speedo’s and great big grin. . . siiiigh. . .
SUNDAY – We Love… Space – Space
There is simply no where else you should be on a Sunday in Ibiza and this year is no exception.

With its 6 incredible musical environments and unrivalled atmosphere, you know you are in safe hands as you move smoothly through what is probably the best clubbing environment on the planet. Burlington Project are once again taking care of business in the Red box and the Discotecha and Sunset Terrace will play host to the likes of James Zabiela, Apparat, Ramadanman / Pearson Sound, Tom Budden, Spektre, Claude Von Stroke among many other’s making up the almost weekly festival-esque monster summer line up this year.
