Fall even more in love with Ibiza celebrating spring on the island
Yey, we’re excited today is the first day of spring! Let’s say bye bye winter (which honestly hasn’t really been a winter) and hello to the beginning of our favourite and unparalleled season of the year: SPRING in IBIZA! 🌺🌸🌼
Are you wondering what to do in Ibiza this spring? As you’ll have read in our first blog post, at bsplash we’re all about sharing what to do in Ibiza, so you don’t find out the day after the events have already taken place. This is why we thought we’d share with you 10 plans you won’t want to miss out on this spring. Here we’ve selected a combination of 10 events, which include, wellness and sports, music and art, parties, dancing, and fun.
1-Sant Josep’s Flower Power (March, 23rd)
Sant Josep’s Flower Power Party is one of the most fun and colourful parties on the island. Although the Flower Power party became famous at Pacha, the concept has begun to spread around the island during the quieter months of the year.
The DJs of this Flower Power edition will be DJs Pharma and Javi Box. Live music will be provided by the following bands: Willy & The Poor Boys (a Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute group), Discover, My Generation, Lucy Sky & The Diamonds, Fuel Pressure Regulator, The Frigolos, Jet Lag, and Groovy Brothers. Most importantly: don’t forget to wear your best 60’s, 70’s or 80’s attire! (More info)
2-Primavera at Atzaró (March, 31)
Another event which residents and locals look forward to year after year is Atzaró’s Spring Festival. Primavera at Atzaró marks the beginning of the season in Ibiza for locals and Ibiza residents. It takes place on the 31st of March from midday to midnight at the Agroturismo Atzaró.
The entrance fee will be a total of 25€, which includes a 5€ donation to one of the projects Atzaró Fundraising is supporting. Not only will there be 15 guest artists providing us with live music throughout the day, but we’ll also be able to enjoy all kinds of yumminess at the food and drink stall, entertainment, gastronomic and holistic workshops, and live painting by Behzad.
