Parties during the off-season in Ibiza are a stark contrast to much of what happens during the summer. They are more intimate affairs, full of the familiar faces that make the island tick, a place where you can experiment with far more interesting bookings for which you are more often than not greeted by rapturous praise for said efforts,

IAIN TAYLOR (Rejekt Music Label Boss / Eat And Beat Records / Sankeys Soap)
Label Boss & Musical Director Iain Taylor has this to say about putting on parties during the off season in Ibiza “For us, keeping our momentum going through the winter in Ibiza is essential! Speak to any of the Spanish who were born and bred in Ibiza and for most of them, Pacha is their favourite club. It’s the only so called “superclub” open all year round and they offer people who live in Ibiza free entry before 02:30 (which is early for Ibiza).
You also have a real core of people who make the island tick through the summer who chose to stay on the island all year round and for many the winter is their favourite time of year.” “We close the club off to create a much more intimate gathering, the DJ booth is moved to ground level which creates a real connection with the floor and keep the bookings balanced between fresh exciting international artists and solid island based support.”
“So many people turn up in the spring and leave in autumn, which is fine but you miss something that way i feel. Ibiza is such a different place when she is wrapped in the noise and furore of summer and the connection that we make with the indigenous population and the international community who chose to live on this beautiful island all year around is so integral to us taking our warm and friendly family vibe into the fray that is drenched in the sun’s rays”
