Hï Ibiza’s official Opening Party on Saturday 26th May marked the start of season 2 for the Ibiza superclub, with thousands of party revellers eager to witness Black Coffee’s return to the Hï Ibiza Theatre and discover what’s in store for the season ahead.
Black Coffee’s debut Ibiza residency at Hï Ibiza was one of the most talked about parties on the island in 2017 so anticipation was high for the first date of the South African house hero’s 20-week residency this summer. Joined by guests including &ME, Audiofly, Blond:ish, Guy Mantzur, Mandar, Salome, Serge Devant and Themba, with Ibiza favourites Housekeeping hosting the Club room, and Melon Bomb taking on the Wild Corner all night long, Black Coffee and friends soon proved that there’s only one place to be on Saturday nights in Ibiza.
With a killer soundtrack and extended opening hours, keeping the crowd dancing well past sunrise, highlights from the night included two special unannounced back-to-back sessions, with Blond:ish playing b2b with Salomé and Black Coffee stepping up for a B2B with both &ME and Blond:ish. Take a look at some of the highlights here.

About Hï Ibiza
One of Hï Ibiza’s most unique features is its complete transformation from one night to the next, with a bespoke production for each daily residency designed to heighten the overall clubbing experience. In 2017, guests were mesmerized by lazers at Armin van Buuren’s residency, dazzled by dancers and disco balls at Glitterbox, enraptured by the epic light show at Eric Prydz’s Tuesday night takeover, and much more. Expect more of the same in 2018, with lots of new surprises in store.
One of last year’s most popular hideouts at the club, the ‘Wild Corner’ makes a heroes return this year. Affectionately nicknamed “the disco toilet”, the Wild Corner played host to some legendary music moments in 2017 and fans can expect another exciting programme of DJs set to perform in 2018. And of course, for those chill out moments, partygoers can relax and unwind under a canopy of stars in the luxurious open-air gardens complete with tipis and cocktail bars. All this plus 2 miles of streamers, 86 lasers, 100 speakers, 300 lights, 1000kg of C02 and 5 million video pixels at every party makes for a truly memorable party experience.
