Music is the pulse of this island. Ibiza’s economy revolves around its nightclubs.

Now that Ibiza has been green-listed by the UK, this island is gearing up for the return of mass tourism. And this experiment could represent its revival.

The guinea pigs are all key workers, like these nursing assistants.

Nursing Assistant, One: “I can’t wait to dance. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to party around here.”
Nursing Assistant, Two: “After such a long time, you do really wanna go for it.”

There are signs Ibiza is emerging from the crisis: there are no restrictions on people traveling to these shores from the UK.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

But the Balearic politicians want to tighten the entry rules.

Rosana Morillo, Director of Tourism: “We think that with the increase in the number of cases in the UK, now is the right moment to put in place controls to make sure that everyone that comes here is in the right condition, is safe and can have a safe holiday.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Danny Whittle, Artist Manager: “You know kids come here at 17, 18, 19-years-old, fall in love with the place, and they keep coming back year-after-year — until even in their 50s. They’re bringing their kids here, and they’re renting villas.

So the clubs play a really important part of being that gateway to discover the island.”

Dawn Hindle, Owner, Pikes Ibiza: “People crave dance. They crave connection. They crave expression.

And I think those are the things that have sort of been taken away from us: People have been isolated. People have been locked up on their own, segregated from family.

So I think going back to the dance floor going back to music, it’s a sort of form of a real essence of life.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

DJs worry if the tune doesn’t change soon, the clubbers will simply go elsewhere.

Phat Phil Copper, DJ: “There is something magical about the island — Ibiza is about clubbing. And it would be foolish — you can’t stop clubbing, simple as that. There needs to be a place for it somewhere.

And if it’s not here, it’s going to be somewhere else.”

If this event is a success both in terms of health and logistics, it will be used as a model for reopening Ibiza’s entire club scene.
