Island where the party never stops. (Until 6 a.m.)

Full story: Chicago Tribune
This legendary island of party insanity has come to a kind of middle-age revelation: It no longer can keep up 24-hour clubbing. Full Story

Nice article, Christine,

I lived on the island for several years, and I can say that your letter is very accurate in showing this specific side of Ibiza.(I also like the charming expressions you use....).
Yet, you only describe one scene of the island: mainstream clubbing. You letter says nothing about "real" underground clubbing, or the hippie scene, the trance parties in the countryse, the expat scene, the eco-organic scene, etc...

That's understandable. It is the case that islanders prefer to take outside journalists to Pacha, renowned for attracting celebrities and models. But, in fact, Pacha is not the favorite club among native and global clubbers, who do preffer wilder venues at Space, Amnesia, or DC-10. These clubs can indeed be a tad overwhelming, if you are not used to that...

Thanks for the letter. I love the expressions you use. They remind me of my convesations with expats, British and not...

In sum, Pacha is not the best clubbing in Ibiza. And clubbing is not the only thing on the island, particularly among resident expatriates and natives.

If interested, check my book about Ibiza expats and global clubbing and tourism titled "Global Nomads" (Routledge 2007). I also have a blog about global dance music scenes:
