Work as a DJ in Ibiza Spain

Welcome to our guide on getting a job in Ibiza as a DJ in one of the many clubs, bars and pubs on the island.

Unless you are one of the world’s top DJs you’re likely to struggle to find a job on the island.

Becoming a DJ (deejay) in one of the major clubs such as Pacha, Eden, Amnesia, Es Paradis, Privilege, Amnesia and Space is virtually impossible unless you are a well-known name in the industry.

Famous DJ’s working the turntables in Ibiza nightclubs include David Guetta, Carl Cox, Judge Jules, Pete Tong, Tiesto and Armin Van Buuren.

We also have some advice on moving to Ibiza.

DJ Jobs in Spain 2020

If you are looking for a DJ job in Spain then without doubt you should be looking at Ibiza first and foremost. As discussed above it is very difficult to find work here in one of the superclubs but there are are plenty of other smaller venues.

The positive news is that there are lots of bars, pubs, discos and smaller clubs that also require DJs to cater for the thousands of dance-mad tourists who come to Ibiza (Eivissa) every year.

Some of the other Spanish islands also had some good clubs and work opportunities where you won’t need to be a superstar internationally famous DJ unlike Ibiza!

There are some good clubs and opportunities to be a DJ in Tenerife and Marbella.

Majorca also has a thriving club scene especially in the resort of Magaluf with the BCM Club.

Any DJ (disc jockey) jobs available that we have will be listed at the bottom of the page.

If you’re looking for work as a DJ in Ibiza, please also leave your details at the bottom of the page so that you can be contacted directly.

There are plenty of alternative employment opportunities to work in Ibiza and some of the other types of jobs are very much easier to find, for example, bar jobs, PR jobs, hotel jobs, holiday rep jobs and dancer jobs.

To be honest what you might need to do is put your disc jockey ambitions on hold and just get any type of club job just to work the summer season and then you can seek out gigs and search for vacancies when you’re actually there once you get to know people.

Start by going into workers bars such as the Ship Inn. Some of these workers bars will let you play free on their decks and you can play some mixes and maybe get discovered?

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.

Can’t get work as a DJ? – you can buy Pacha tickets here.

    I am writing you regarding a role as a DJ in Ibiza. I find that my academic accomplishments will improve since I study Creative Music Technology in London and I am preparing my thesis on the History of House Music and the Art of mixing/DJ especially. I am seeking a challenging but rewarding internship, which is why I am writing you.

    However I don’t have skills in PR or advertising skills but I do believe that I have a good ear and taste and can therefore research more in depth and play good and honest music. It is also a chance for me to get to know the Producers and DJs since I make music on my own and play music as well. While I was in school as a Junior and Junior High at Munich International School I had several internships with great music producers such as Eberhardt Schöner and Harold Faltermeyer (Top Gun, Axel F, Donna Summer, Partri LaBelle and many more).

    As Student in my 6th year at the London Metropolitan we cover:

    Critical and Contextual Music Studies
    Creative Studio Practice
    Media Skills and Practice
    Interactive Arts
    Applied Music Technology
    Composition and Live Electronics
    Music/Media Context and Cultural Musicology

    Includes:

    Music programming and coding
    Psycho Acoustics
    Instrument Building and Designing Electronic Synthesizers
    Sound-speaker Analysis and Design

    Using my knowledge above and listening to music my whole life. I produced, composed music and DJ at several great places such as Brilliant Corners, London UK and Underground Clubs in Germany (Bob Beaman), UK, Spain and Switzerland)

    I would be delighted to have an opportunity to get this chance. Please accept the enclosed resume and feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. I appreciate your time and consideration.

    yours sincerely,

    Constantin Wittgenstein
