Past editors are founder Chris Langley 1999-2007, Daniel Darvey 2007 - 2014. The current editor from 2014 is Nick Gibbs.
Though now in print and online, our aim remains the same - to disseminate a broad cross section of Ibiza's news, views, events and activities reflecting our equally broad cross section of readers in the English speaking community and visitors.

We love to receive your news and your views - if you have something to say, please get in touch.
