 DJ E.A.S.E's phenomenal Wax Da Jam returns this week.

Opening parties are now a distant memory and the Ibiza season is in full swing. Like always, there is a wreath of different options for you to consider, and our advice is trying something different as well as the old favourites. Here we round up five of the best such offerings over the next week. 


Do Not Sit at Heart - Thursday June 28

Behrouz’s Do Not Sit on the Furniture party is heavily inspired by Burning Man. The decor is magical and immersive and adds to the decidedly deep, melodious, desert house soundtrack from the man himself and considered guests. The idea when the club started in Miami was to offer something more underground and less commercial, and that carries over to the Ibiza edition. This Thursday the cultured Robag Wruhme brings his deft minimalism to the confines of Heart, with resident Powel also dropping heat. 


Solomun + 1 at Pacha - Sunday July 1

Big man Solomun is just about to release his Dynamic label’s 100th record. It is a three tracker from the boss himself that brims with exactly the sort of poised, melody-rich prog house that has become his bread and butter, and the staple sound he serves up at his own + 1 night at Pacha. Expect to hear it this Sunday when he plays, as does Innervisions’ considered deep house talent Mano Le Tough, while the two will also go back to back to finish things off. 


Glitterbox at Hï Ibiza - Friday June 29

Defected affiliated night Glitterbox is vitally important in Ibiza: it is one of increasingly few places where dancing freaks and queers, and people of all colours, sexualities and genders can come together and party in a free and safe environment. For that reason it’s one of the most colourful parties on the island, and this Friday house heroes Kenny Dope and Joey Negro play, while Groove Armada bring some big room beats, Purplediscomachine brings his deep funk and Simon Dunmore and Melvo Baptiste also line-up. 


Wax Da Jam at Las Dalias - Thursday June 28
For more info - click here

Nightmares on Wax aims to bring some old school Balearic flavours to every party he does. They take place in what he reckons is the best club on the island, and this Thursday he DJs in the Club and plays a full live show in the Garden. Joining him will be Hacienda veteran Buckley and Negghead, and between them you can expect a sun-bleached mix of dub, funk, house, disco and soul that is as organic as they come. A truly essential visit, if you are on the island


Black Coffee at Hï Ibiza - Sunday June 30

Black Coffee’s residency at Hï Ibiza last year proved one of the most successful debuts in recent memory. The South African is the backbone of the night who plays expressive sets of long, winding grooves flecked with percussion and laden with a sense of spirituality. On Saturday this week he is joined by the increasingly back on form Luciano, Vatos Locos man Hector, plus Hyenha and The Mekanism plus Housekeeping in room 2.
