In what is a welcome addition to the islands musical calender, the team at Club Amnesia in San Rafel, have taken the brave initiative to host a prestigious New Years Eve party in Ibiza. Instead of playing it safe, they have booked their star DJ and party of 2013, Marco Carolas Music On, in an effort to attract off season tourists to the island. It is hoped that any extra winter tourism will be good for the local community and provide a welcome boost for hotels, car rentals, restaurants and bars. With direct winter flights now available to Ibiza from London City airport, it is hoped that the scheduling of a top class party will entice party goers to visit the island for a clubbing weekend like no other. The special Amnesia party features the exciting Marco Carolo and the excellent Jamie Jones on the terrace, while Amnesia resident Mar-T and Pan Pot will rock the Main Room.

Many of the artists playing the New Years Eve party will most probably end up heading to DC10 which opens at midday on January 1st. The New Years Day party at DC10 has long been regarded as one of the best off season parties in Ibiza with many well know faces making appearances and always a few surprises in store.The Circo Loco party will have many of the DC10 favourites present, including Seven Vath, Jamie Jones and Tania Vulcano. Pacha will also be open over the Christmas period and its La Troya party on the 28th of December and the Channel Zoo party on the 27th, looks the pick of their Christmas season. To date Booom have not announced their Christmas schedule but they will be open at the weekends. Lets hope that this initiative from Amnesia, will be rewarded with a big turn out and that the Ibiza clubs combine more often to put together an off season break that nicely bridges the gap between October and May. An ideal Christmas present for the special techno head in your life!
