If you are thinking about going to any opening parties during May 2018 in Ibiza and you are still not sure about which disco you should go to, I’ve made a selection of the best events for you. I have listed them by week so that it would be easier for you to decide when to buy a flight ticket, or ask for a day off work in advance in case you live on the island.

Trying to define the musical style of each event could be a bit confusing nowadays. You could be listening to a mix of Techno and House on many occasions. That’s why I have classified each opening parties so that you can have a guide if you are not an expert. The countdown begins!

One last tip about Ibiza 2018 opening parties:

If you are planning to buy online tickets or if you wish to sign up for a guests list, I advise you to download the app TG Ibiza. You can see other people’s ratings, comment about each party, check out their top 10 of events, and there is even an online chat. Download link:

I would definitively pick week 5, as I want to go to Cocoon. Leave a comment on which week you would choose. 😉
