Space, DC-10 and IMS will get started a week earlier than they have in the past.
If the dates of IMS and the opening parties for Space and DC-10 are anything to go by, this summer's season in Ibiza looks set to start a week earlier than usual.
At first glance the dates don't look much different from last year's: Space's opening fiesta will happen on the 27th instead of the 29th, DC-10's on the 28th instead of the 30th, and International Music Summit will get started on the 23rd instead of the 25th. This two-day gap is deceptive. The reason for this is a bit convoluted, so bear with us.
Traditionally Space's opening party has happened on the first Sunday in June, except when there are five Sundays in May, as there were last year, in which case it's taken place at the end of May instead. This year Space and DC-10 will once again open at the end of May, despite there being only four Sundays in the month, thereby moving their opening parties forward one week, if ever so discreetly.
That might not seem like such a big deal for some, but for Ibiza regulars who book their flights well in advance, it's worth making a note of. It also suggests an expansion of the clubbing season in general, something club owners on the island have been pushing for lately.
We'll have details on the lineups for the opening parties sometime in the months ahead. Tickets for Circo Loco's opening events at DC-10 are already available here on RA.
