On Monday 15th, the main Fiesta Day, everything starts at 11am and culminates with the fabulous Ibiza House Orcestra  See the programme ad for full info.

  • Claire B

The annual fiesta in Figueretes takes place from August 11-15. Most days in the afternoon and going on into the evening there are workshops and activities for children and concerts on the stage in the Plaça Julià Verdera on the beachfront. The fiesta culminates with a fantastic firework display over the sea at midnight on August 15 to celebrate the fiesta of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. The Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary commemorates the death of Mary and her bodily assumption into heaven, and signifies her passing into eternal life. There will be DJs and music before the fireworks. Here’s some of the highlights of the programme:

Thursday 11, Ball pagès (traditional folk dancing) from La Colla de Sa Bodga at 9pm, live music from local female rock band Wind Rose at 10pm

Saturday 13, live music from local musician Miguel Ángel Silva at 10pm and Contra-Band, a rock and ska band from Valencia at 11.30pm.

Sunday 14, live music from local bands Lemon Emigrants at 9pm and The Frigolos at 11pm

Monday 15, fireworks on the beach at midnight with music and DJs before

perseid-meteor-showers$largePerseids Meteor Shower

  • Best hours to observe in Spain: 11:00pm – 04:30am
  • Peak: Night of Aug 12 to morning of Aug 13

On average, under completely clear skies, and in complete darkness, observers may witness 50 to 80 meteors per hour; but these rates can exceed up to 120 meteors per hour in rural locations. Be aware that local conditions such as light pollution, cloud cover, and precipitation will also play a major role in the number of meteors you are likely to see.

For the best viewing experience, find an area unobstructed by a structure that is far away from city lights. Using optical devices such as binoculars or telescopes is not recommended, as your field of view will be greatly restricted, thus making the possibility of missing a “shooting star” more likely.

Once you have settled down at your observation spot, face half-way up toward the northeastern portion of the sky. Looking northeast, you will have the constellation of Perseus, the radiant of the Perseids shower, within your field of view. Not coincidentally, the Perseids meteor shower is named after the constellation Perseus for the reason that they appear to originate from the sparkling Greek “hero.”

Bloop-Tunnel-Art_2Tunnel Art

  • Ibiza Town
    • Claire B

Bloop, the International Proactive Art Festival is currently taking place in Ibiza until August 16. Murals have been popping up in San Antonio over the last few years, but this year Ibiza Town has had its own artwork created, and gorgeous it is too. Mexican artist Spaik has decorated one of the entrances to the Soto tunnel, located off Carrer Joan Xico. Spaik is an urban artist known for his colourful works inspired by Latin American folklore, traditions, mythology and native stories. It took 5 days to create, and is a permanent addition to the tunnel. The aim of the Bloop Festival is to create long-term projects in which the outdoor murals are visible and can be visited throughout the year. This year the theme of the festival is ‘Sin Miedo’ (without fear). It’s a great addition to what is a rather bland tunnel linking Ibiza Town to Puig des Molins and is well worth a visit to see it.
