Amnesia will be forced to close early and face other restrictions
Iconic Ibiza club Amnesia announced that it will no longer stay open past 6 am, due to new and tighter restrictions placed on the club by the local government.
In a statement on its website, Amnesia’s management explained that “through the constant pressures by the institutions of the island, restricting the club’s schedule to promote other interests and having accepted and paid all the fines that have been imposed on us and deny one more time the exceptionality of a morning schedule for the Opening.” Amnesia’s opening party is set to take place May 28 and host Apollonia, Cuartero, Hector, Mar-T, Pan-Pot, Ricardo Villalobos, Amine Edge & DANCE, Claptone, Disciples, Fritz Kalkbrenner and Hannah Wants.
In the past, Amnesia’s opening party ran until around 9 am, but the club has agreed to a 6 am closure this year. The club opens at 4 pm, meaning the opening party will last a shortened 14 hours. Though, Amnesia hasn’t given up on after-hours parties for the rest of the season- “we will fight that the magic continues in Ibiza and avoid that the music stops.”
The club also apologized for its volatile scheduling changes, which may have resulted in clubbers who booked before the new opening date was announced to miss out. The club explained “finally, we apologize for the constant changes of schedule, due to external causes that we have wanted to avoid the most important event of the summer has affected many of you personally.”
Changes like those imposed upon Amnesia may be inevitable across the island as Ibiza becomes more of a VIP destination, however.
