Love the ocean? If so, Thursday 20th July is a definite date for your diaries, m’hearties! Non-profit organisation, Oceanic Global, is hosting a benefit festival to raise awareness of ocean conservation efforts on Ibiza. And they’ve managed to bag the legendary Solomun to headline!
Oceanic x Ibiza; A festival for our ocean
The event will take place at Blue Marlin, Cala Jondal from 4.30 pm until midnight. Tickets cost €40 but for Ibiza residents who show ID, entry is free. Register here for tickets.
Editors note: the organisers have just made a last minute change to the location of this event. It is now to be hosted at Agrotourismo Atzaro, near Santa Eulalia. Timings remain the same.
Oceanic x Ibiza will transport participants through the depths of the ocean via virtual reality stations at the venue. The aim is to juxtapose the natural beauty of the sea with the impact of destructive elements (such as plastic – booooo). Featuring talks and panel discussions on ocean-related issues from leading conservationists, Oceanic x Ibiza will also offer practical solutions for restoring ocean health. Check it out.
Art, fashion, music & tech
There will be a wide range of eco-goods on sale, artwork and fashion designs to browse and a specially designated children’s area with plenty of cool activities for the little ones. And there will be music, music, music! As well as Solomun, there are some special yet-to-be-announced guests lined up and dance performances throughout the day.
All profits will be donated to local initiatives in Ibiza. Super cool.
A passion for sustainable tourism
Here at Boats Ibiza, we can hardly wait for this amazing festival! We care deeply about our beautiful Balearic Sea and fully support all initiatives to raise awareness of the need for responsible and sustainable tourism in here in Ibiza & Formentera. Events like this are hugely important so that we can all educate ourselves and work together to conserve our beautiful marine life. Oh, and get down with some cool tunes from the legendary Solomun & friends in a beautiful location at the same time. Boom 🙂
Bravo, Oceanic Global and high-five to all the cool cats that made this event happen. Get involved & book your tickets here!
