Ibiza 2020 A Year In Review
Written by Dan Kirwan
What a year we have just lived through. High emotions, fear, confusion, change and departure surrounded us like no other. For those who love and work on the island of Ibiza, it’s been an especially tough year with many barely hanging on by their fingertips as they try to wrestle with bleak prospects, Brexit and reduced hours in the face of rising costs of living in Ibiza.
For me personally, 2020 has been extremely challenging, it’s marked a new dawn and while Ibiza will always play an important part in my life, I now have new priorities to nurture. Ibiza has been changing into a horse of a different color and pedigree for the last ten years or so, and this year has witnessed the beginning of the end for many old ways of life on the island.
I will be writing a review of Ibiza 2020 in the coming weeks, it’s been such an eventful season that selecting the direction and stories to include and exclude, is currently the most difficult part of composing the article. But as they say here in Catalonia, poc a poc, little by little I will get there!
So on the eve of a New Year, I would like to take this opportunity to offer all my followers and your families, my heartfelt good wishes for 2021 and hope it will be one we can all face with unity, courage and hope.
Ibiza 1999 was also the beginning of the end for old Ibiza. A time when we holidayed with the value of the Peseta, a currency that made everything on the island chea
DC10 took techno music and made it trendy and cool, creating a genre that added prestige to brand Ibiza, lifting the island from a hippy backwater to a Coliseum of musical culture and identity.
Like the dark-suited agents from The Matrix, they can quickly move from one account to another in their network at any given time, moonlighting as a new identity and deleting an old one if they feel it’s compromised. The average-sized network that one person can easily control or administer would have a minimum of 300 accounts associated with it.
