Between January and September last year, Ibiza welcomed over three and a half million tourists by air. 2020? Not so much.
Perched in the mediterranean sea, just off the coast of Spain, Ibiza is a UNESCO world heritage site and the largest of the Balearic Islands. Ibiza is also a party destination island, notorious for its hippy culture, electronic dance music, beach clubs, and all day, all night summer club scene (Freddie Mercury once held a 2-week long party at famous nightclub, Pikes!).
Alas, this year the club doors are firmly shut and beaches remain quiet. Lucky for you, we’ve got the perfect line up of courses that offer you the dose of music, relaxed vibes, and delicious snacks you need to almost feel the white, Baleriac sand beneath your toes.
Feel the music from afar
Music is king in Ibiza and whilst you can’t hit the clubs to discover the world’s newest DJs you can learn all about the power of music and how to make music of your own.
Whether you want to join Goldsmiths to discover the wonderful world of jazz piano and learn to play the blues or you’re ready to take on the challenge of writing your first song, you don’t have to miss out on feeling the rhythm.
You can even bring the rest of the Ibiza 2020 group chat along with you and learn how to make music together with the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and boogie on down from home.
Channel your inner fashionista
As well as the epic music, Ibiza is renowned for its clothes and jewellery markets and the eclectic fashion on show on the beaches, clubs, and yachts. Whilst you can’t check out the latest island made bangles, dresses, and bags, you can get your head around the reality of fashion in our world today.
Embrace the Ibizan hippy culture and explore what part you can play in making fashion more sustainable with the London College of Fashion. Or, explore the link between fashion and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals with the Fashion Revolution.
Nourish your body and mind
Those late Ibiza nights can take a toll on the body, so it’s vital to take some time to understand how what you eat affects your mind and body. Before taking on Ibiza town in 2021, join Deakin University to discover the relationship between what you eat and your brain health.
By the time you hit up the beaches, you’ll be well informed on how more healthy diet choices can improve your mental and brain health, making the party all the more fun.
Remember to stay hydrated!
