The team behind the Beat Hotel have revealed plans for their first event in Ibiza, scheduled for October.
A Balearic Beat Hotel will take place across two beauty spots on the White Isle: sunset vantage point Hostal La Torre, and secluded beach cove Cala Gracioneta. It will take in three days of music, wellbeing events and talks.
Guest DJs will cover ambient music, jazz, downtempo and various Balearic-appropriate sounds, with the likes of Mafalda, Esa, Zakia, John Gomez, Ruf Dug, Jonny Nash and Jamie Tiller all down to play across three sunset sessions at Hostal La Torre. Ibiza legend DJ Alfredo will also join up with Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy for a four-hour b2b DJ set at Cala Gracioneta on the final night of the event.
Alongside the music, A Balearic Beat Hotel will offer a cultural programme involving various writers and wellbeing practitioners. As part of this offering, UK writer Joe Muggs will present his Ambient Salon concept, which will feature a discussion around the importance of belonging and place, paired with a drone and noise soundtrack.
Publisher White Rabbit will oversee an afternoon session of talks, which will involve DJ and author of the book ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’ Bill Brewster speaking with Christian Len, author of 2020’s cultural history of Ibiza, ‘Balearic’, talking about immortalising dancefloor moments.
Much of the three days’ events will also be streamed online via the Beat Hotel’s broadcast partners.
The inaugural A Balearic Beat Hotel takes place from 6th-8th October. Find more information here.
The event will take place as clubs on the White Isle prepare to officially reopen, with some restrictions still in place, from 8th October.
