Solomun at the Port, Ibiza

8pm – Wednesday September 21, 2022

This Wednesday night heralds the return of one of Ibiza’s most popular annual open-air parties, as Diynamic main man Solomun comes back to the port after a two-year hiatus. International clubbers, island residents and purveyors of fine music can unite beneath the Balearic sky, with the superyachts bobbing in the harbour behind the stage while Solomun plays a free gig as a way to say thank you to the island for supporting him this summer. Our top tip is to reserve a table at Casa Sudaca or Marea Ibiza Club as a homebase for pre-party cocktails and post-rave dinner.
