Anyone looking to go on holiday to get 'a bit of colour' should look no further than Ibiza's Holi Garden Festival. Spend even a few minutes here and you'll come out looking like you've got it on with a rainbow. This lively event runs every Monday throughout the summer season and is an explosion of colour, music and positive vibes.
Ever since its debut in 2014, Holi Garden Festival has proved to be popular with the hoards of tourists that flock to the sun-kissed party island of Ibiza. Its theme has been drawn from the Hindu celebration and original 'Holi', which originates from India with the message of love and equality. Yet, to the majority of Ibiza party-goers, it's all about getting a multi-coloured tan and partying to the sound of some world-class DJs.
The opening party begins in June but you can attend the festival every Monday at Benimussa Park right up until the closing party at the end of September. It kicks off at 4.30 p.m. with bikini-clad babes sipping on cocktails around the pool before colour gets pumped all over the main dancefloor every 45 minutes between 6.30 p.m.-10 p.m. The spectacle all happens to a diverse house soundtrack from Holi's resident DJs and accompanying guests.
Make sure you get your tickets in advance (they include two colour bags). Drinks and bag packages will also be available for purchase at the event (this will save you a few euros on the price you'd pay separately). Oh, and it's probably not the best idea to wear your brand new designer top; that's unless it could do with a splash of colour.
- Get there: Take a bus or taxi to get around the island.
- Stay: Find a hotel by the beach in Sa Punta des Moli.
