It’s fair to say that Calvin Harris has not been a prolific Ibiza performer, his global popularity has meant his appearances on the clubbing capital have been limited. Ibiza 2019 sees that change as he sets down roots in Ushuaïa Ibiza for a six-week residency that will be fantastic news to his legion of fans. Having scored the highest selling single of 2018, his ‘Oone Kiss’ collaboration with Dua Lipa, he is currently climbing global charts with ‘Giant’ with Rag ‘n’ Bone Man. Accolades include five Grammy nominations, including the Grammy for best music video in 2013 with Rhianna and ‘We Found Love’, as well as 16 Brit Award nominations, winning two and countless number one hits, working with some of the biggest names on the scene. Calvin Harris is a bonafide pop star, with over 16 billion combined audio and video streams, he is one of the most viewed artists on youtube!
