Ibiza DJ Jobs
Becoming a DJ in Ibiza is much harder than it looks. This island may be famous as a magnet for clubbers all over the world but there are still only a limited amount of clubs and you are competing against world famous names.
The most likely way to get a DJ job is in one of the small bars and pubs in the West End area of San Antonio.
Even there, many of the bars and clubs have resident DJs who return every single year.
You just have to start at the bottom and work your way up.
Unless you have a name then you will also have to be aware that you can’t turn up play your mixes and favourite tracks.
The bars and nightclubs in the West End will expect you to play the most commercial dance and pop music regardless of your taste or abilities as that is what their customers want.
Here is a good article about DJ Sam, AKA Miss Divine who has been fortunate enough to gain a residency at Hush in Ibiza.
Most DJ jobs will be located in the busy resort of San Antonio but around the island are other major resorts such as Ibiza Town and Playa d’en Bossa.At least as a DJ you are actually working in the clubs themselves with the bonus of free drinks included.
