Pacha Ibiza Closed for 2020 Due to Coronavirus

Pacha Group has today confirmed that Pacha Ibiza does not intend to open for the remainder of 2020.

CEO Nick McGabe announced that his team had made the “painful and difficult” decision, based on the recent guidelines issued by the Balearic government.

Nick continued, “we will follow the recommendations of the administration in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of employees and customers.”

This marks the first time in its celebrated 52-year history that the venue will stay shut for summer.

Pacha now joins Privilege and TNL’s venues Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza in cancelling their season. This does not affect the company’s other businesses on the island, Destino Pacha Resort (only the hotel, there will be no clubbing events) and Lío (with no dancefloor), which are both scheduled to open in July.

Ibiza Clubs + Pool Party Opening Dates 2019

The Ibiza party season typically opens around May of each year. Both the clubs and pool parties tend to have their opening parties around this time.

The official start to the Ibiza clubbing season is considered the International Music Summit (IMS) which takes place at the end of the month between Ibiza Town and Playa d’en Bossa. However, several clubs host opening parties earlier than that. Superclubs as Amnesia, Pacha and Sankeys are typically amongst the first to open their doors. Other clubs such as Ushuaïa, DC10, Privilege and Hï Ibiza usually open later in May. Note that opening parties are actually held after “soft” openings of the clubs.
