Essential Ibiza Magazine 002

Posted on April 2, 2015

The latest issue of Essential Ibiza’s magazine is ready for your enjoyment and it is packed full of island favourites. Our cover stars this month have all made a huge impact on Ibiza, in very different DJ booths, Dubfire might not have a residency but he is a regular visitor to the clubbing capital playing at many of the cutting edge parties while Solomun is set to return to Pacha on Sunday night as well as debuting Solomun Plus Live at Destino this summer. Steve Lawler and his Viva Warriors have turned Sunday night in Sankeys Ibiza into a stronghold for their underground vibe and Steve Aoki enjoyed a spectacular opening season in Pacha and will return to the glamorous venue, moving to Monday night for 2015.
