Clubs in Ibiza and Magaluf will not open this year and will potentially be closed through 2021 too.
As the newspaper Diario de Ibiza reports, the Balearic government is asking most bars and venues to keep their doors shut until a COVID-19 vaccine is found, due to the risk to health and the difficulty in controlling crowds.
But many club owners have hit back, coming up with a pilot test to take over a period of ten days – from June 21st until July 1st – which would limit capacity to 33% and prohibit dancing by installing chairs and tables on the dance floor whilst maintaining social distancing. Customers will also have to wear masks and leave their contact information, incase there is a need for contract tracing. This could allow venues and clubs to safely re-open and bring some life back to the island.
Quickly after the news surfaced, two of the White Isle’s major clubs and brands canceled their 2020 seasons. In a statement posted yesterday, both Hï Ibiza and Ushuaïa announced that “following the news from the Balearic Government that no clubs will be allowed to open in Ibiza this season, it is with a heavy heart that we announce that there will be no events at both Hï Ibiza and Ushuaia this summer.”
