Since its discovery as a desirable destination in the 1930s, Ibiza has been an escape: for artists and intellectuals fleeing oppression, Hollywood stars seeking privacy, hippies during the Summer of Love, and eighties rock stars like Pink Floyd and Freddie Mercury. Today, many come for the explosive house music scene, which thrives in clubs like Pacha and Amnesia; others prefer the peaceful yoga retreats. For decades, Joni Mitchell, Kate Moss, David Bowie, Jade Jagger, Jean Paul Gaultier, and countless other creative minds have explored and enjoyed this hippie-chic atmosphere, the perfect backdrop for artistic freedom, spiritual soul, and international glamour.
