Ibiza: the island that makes everyone happy

Nights and music festivals. But also relax in beaches far from the crowd. And a surprising campaign. Discover all the faces of Isla Blanca

Who did not think at least once in the life of spending a vacation in Ibiza? Isla Blanca has always been one of the most popular summer destinations, especially among the Italians. It will be that the star of the Balearic Islands is the island for everyone. Nightlife, entertainment, clubs and discos where to get up until dawn are not the only attraction: just knowing the right places and Ibiza is a suitable destination for those who do not like the crowds, a perfect place to relax and retrieve energies, walking, pedaling, paddling and swimming, without being overwhelmed by tourists.

A holiday in Ibiza can not be missed by Dalt Vila, the acropolis of the Ibiza / Eivissa capital, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site: a maze of narrow streets enclosed by impressive walled enclosures filled with restaurants and locals. Vibrant at any time of day and night, the old town is the perfect place to have fun and make some healthy shopping. Among the historical monuments that come along the trail, the Almudaina Castle, the Cathedral Santa Maria de les Neus and the Teatro Pereyra where every summer evening is attended by live music concerts. You must climb to the top of one of the seven bastions that intercept the walls to admire spectacular views of the bay surrounding the city and contemplate Formentera in the distance. For a break, the choice falls on La Comida San Juan, a local institution, an authentic osteria with rustic atmosphere where you can eat a great fish of the day.

The beaches of the capital are Talamanca and Playa d’en Bossa. And in its vicinity is also the famous Sa Caleta. However, it is necessary to move to the municipality of Sant Josep de Sa Talaia to come across a dream sea and in particular within the Ses Salines Natural Park. Here, the Es Cavallet beach, chosen from the gay community as a meeting point for the gay community, is now mainly popular with nudists, while Ses Salines is famous for multicolored water and soft dunes. For the more sporty, the beautiful park is perfect for hiking and mountain biking. Also worth a visit is the beach of Cala Lentrisca, known for its green turquoise waters and the Mediterranean scrubland. When you return, after a sunny day, sit at Fish Shack tables, a restaurant hidden in the rocks of Playa Talamanca, to admire a spectacular sunset and enjoy fresh fish.

You travel along the west coast to reach Cala d’Hort, from where, with two hours of kayaking, you will reach the islet of Es Vedrà, majestic rock rising from the sea on which stories and legends flow, part of a nature reserve. Another “legendary” place nearby, Sa Pedrera, a kind of cliff overlooking the sea, which is famous for its name Atlantis and linked to the history of the island, colonized by hippies in the 1960s.
Along the west coast, but further north, here is the quiet Cala Vedella and the most world-famous Platges de Comte, which gives postcard water and sunsets. From here to Sa Conillera Island, the step is short: if you like to isolate yourself in nature, this is the place for you.

Urban art lovers do not miss a stop at Sant Antoni de Portmany where for some years street artists are invited to leave the mark on the city walls and the result is a rainbow of colors that illuminates the village.

The north-eastern part of Ibiza, between Santa Eulària des Riu and San Joan de Labritja, surprises inside: the real show, in fact, here is the campaign. Oranges, lemons, mangoes, almonds. Narrow trails, non-existent traffic and a thousand shades of green: the Ibiza you do not expect.

From June to September all the most famous venues of the island host internationally renowned Djs and themed evenings. To have fun in great style, the famous Pacha, Ushuaïa and Amnesia remain the three compelling steps. The Bloop Festival, as well as the Lonely Planet as one of the eight best urban art festivals in the world, will be on the agenda from August 23 to September 16 in Sant Antoni.

Being a very famous and tourist island, it is not difficult to find accommodation in Ibiza suitable for all tastes. For a postcard sea view you need to book a room at Hotel Torre del Mar in Eivissa city (double b & b from 100 to 130 €). Las Mariposas (double from 80 to 150 €), instead, in the municipality of Sant Antoni de Portmany, is a typical ibizenca finca converted into b & b and managed by an Italian family. A true oasis of tranquility, with lovely colorful rooms and a swimming pool where you can even swim at night. Nature lovers can not book a room in Can X

‘Time Zone’, new sparks for the International Arts Festival

“Time Zone – on the Way of Possible Music” comes to its thirtieth edition and renews the proposal of search music from the most important international artistic scenes. A sound track in continuity with the history of the Barese Festival, where music is the main protagonist of an exhibition deliberately projected towards the interweaving of codes and languages. Countless and prestigious, they have been artists in over thirty years participating in the Kermesse Barese: from Sakamoto to David Sylvian, Lou Reed to Patti Smith through exhibitions, special projects, readings and installations and previews that have made the festival conceived by Gianluigi Trevisi a staple of the Apulian and international culture.

Preview of the 2017 season will be Time Zones Off, the usual warm-up appointment dedicated to the undergrowth of independent music and the new realities that are gaining the attention of industry media.
From 13th to 15th October, in the spaces of Pellicano in Bari, Turukù will perform in the class, where rock, rap and classical converge into pieces of fulmicotone, the Nocturnal Scene, a post-rock instrument band that blends dreamy atmospheres post-rock dilatations with math-rock rhythmic intersections, and Peekaboom, the duet with double bass, voice and live-looping Ableton.

The official show of Time Zones will animate the weekend on horseback between October and November, departing on Friday 20 in the “Even Cinema Royal” spaces. The protagonists of the evening will be two very interesting formations: the first are Saroos, coming from Berlin and Monaco “side-project” between electronics and post-rock after experiencing historical groups in the German scene such as Notwist and Lali Puna. Following, one of the leading exponents of minimalism, saxophonist and composer Jon Gibson, originally from the West Coast and transplanted to New York, where he became Philip Glass’s historic partner. Along with him on the stage there will be Britton Powell, composer and base performer in Brooklyn, whose work has been commissioned for performances all over the planet. The evening finale is instead entrusted to the project of sounds and images “Visions” by Luigi Morleo and Niccolò Mastrolonardo.

On Saturday, 21, Molfetta’s Eremo Club moves to one of the most anticipated concerts of the season, Alexander Hacke and Danielle De Picciotto. Entered as a guitarist and producer in the mythical Einstürzende Neubauten in 1980, in 2005 he released the solo album “Sanctuary”. In 2006 she married De Picciotto, an American multimedia artist transplanted to Berlin and a singer of Space Cowboys, also famous for creating the Love Parade. Time Zones will feature the album “Perseverantia”, released in May 2016. On the same evening Claudia Ferrari will perform, in the art Missy Jay, techno, minimal, tribal and funky artist. The artist travels the world by offering extremely engaging sets and has been living in Ibiza for years now.

On October 27, in the Auditorium Showville, another great event with well-known Jeff Mills, innovator, prophet and authentic techno legend. It’s an endless production, with some really epoch-making and unmissable dj-sets around the world. He has made dozens of transverse projects between the arts, ranging from science fiction to space, from afrofuturism to electronics and to true contamination. The one that will be presented exclusively in National Time Zones is the latest version of The Trip.

On Saturday, October 28, he returns to the Molfetta Hermitage Club with four performances: at 21.30 he starts with Mary Ocher, a Russian songwriter transplanted to Israel, whose stylistic figure consists of guitar, synth, and vocalizzi eterei. At 22.30 comes Bebawinigi, singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist and actress, to rock, industrial and new wave. Next is Sun Yufka’s turn with a project that moves from tropical mountainous metropolitan markets, while the closing of the evening is for DJLag’s consul, recognized as the main pioneer of Gqom, the sound that joins Durban, London and Rome .

Justin Bieber: his dream house that costs a fortune per night

The stars seem to be fixed with the houses, so that their dwellings are generally an ode to luxury and excess also hard to imagine. Justin Bieber is no exception, and his stay in New Zealand has not really spared no expense.

What Justin Bieber does not die of hunger is acclaimed, but the villa he rented in New Zealand is truly one of the most luxurious and excessive things that have ever been seen.

Justin Bieber flew to New Zealand where they expect new dates of Purpose Tour: obviously the singer needs a place to stay in these days of “away”, but if you think he rented a normal apartment or a quiet house you are totally out Street. Justin has in fact decided to rent one of the most luxurious residences of New Zealand, for the modest sum of $ 23.270 per night: at this price the star can enjoy a huge swimming pool, a tennis court and even a golf course. The house is part of the prestigious complex called The Lodge at The Hills, Queenstown: accommodation designed exclusively for VIP, which in high season can cost as much as USD 32 thousand per night (thank goodness Justin decided to go there in March …). The Lodge at The Hills is rented for a minimum of five nights, and includes a range of pampering for guests that are included in the price: a bottle of champagne upon arrival, a private chef, a night watchman, a selection of beers and characteristic fine wines of New Zealand and the access to the golf course and gym. The residence is located next to a forest, and the pool is surrounded by a large garden, while inside there are six suites, each decorated differently. The common areas were decorated with sculptures and artwork. Not a bad place to relax during Purpose Tour, although it will not be a bit ‘too much as a choice? What is certain is that, given the wealth of Justin Bieber (which would be about 260 million dollars), pay these amounts of money for him is not a problem at all.

Trip on the river and jump into the void
What Justin Bieber wants when he is away from home, you have a little ‘relaxation (goal virtually impossible since it is regularly attacked by fans). Arrived in New Zealand, the Canadian singer has tried to enjoy the beauty of the place and do some ‘tourists: so he took a ride on the Shotover River to admire its canyons and experience the thrill of bungee jumping, and the evening is Queenstown went to a bar to have some fun ‘before starting to work. At the local it gave a very funny scene to his fans, dancing shirtless with an old lady who seemed very appreciate Justin transportation.

Two tattoos in one month may be enough
The surprises do not end here: last month Justin Bieber has decided to decorate his body with two more tattoos, not really small: a bear on your chest and an eagle with spread wings on the stomach. A drastic choice (and painful) which shows how Justin Bieber does not intend to stop with tattoos. Most of the designs that are on his skin are of religious inspiration: how many of Justin’s fans know, the singer is very religious, so much to get to a small cross tattooed on his face, symbolizing his way to God.
