Every Saturday this summer, Ushuaïa Ibiza presents its über-successful home-made party ANTS. Starting from mid-afternoon, the Playa d'en Bossa hotspot becomes an ode to all things underground, showcasing some of the biggest names bringing minimalistic beats from some of the top DJs in the tech house realm to the island. People from all over come a-flocking.
ANTS parties start with the DJ booth at the opposite end of the club, moving to the main stage for the last few hours of partying mayhem. It is well worth getting in early for some rowdy daytime action around the pool - the atmosphere is one of the best on the island!
As the sun sets, mind-blowing pyrotechnics, lighting, visuals and a state-of-the-art soundsystem - not to mention some remarkably attired ants-themed gogo dancers - with an abundance of confetti, streamers and CO2 turn it into the distinctive Ushuaïa experience.
Past seasons have seen a flood of international stars - including Adam Beyer, Andhim, Andrea Oliva, Apollonia, Butch, Davide Squillace, DJ Sneak, Eli & Fur, Francisco Allendes, Gorgon City, Groove Armada, Hito, Ilario Alicante, Joris Voorn, Kölsch, Lauren Lane, Luciano, Matthias Tanzmann, Maya Jane Coles, Nic Fanciulli, Paco Osuna, Richie Hawtin, Richy Ahmed, Steve Lawler, Tapesh, Timo Maas, Uner, wAFF and Yousef - blowing up the place.
From 1 June onwards, you can join the colony every Saturday until 28 September 2019. See calendar below for full details, confirmed line-ups updated daily and tickets.
As for your after-party needs, Ushuaïa has you covered right across the street at the sparkling new venue Hï Ibiza starting at midnight. How's that for perfect?
