ANTS 10 YEARS STRONG, one of Ibiza’s most recognized underground parties, will celebrate a decade at the top in 2023. The highly original and high-concept ANTS is taking things to the next level at Ushuaa Ibiza with a 22-week season, every Saturday from May 6th through September 30th, kicking off with a trio of gigantic day-and-night extravagANTS’ers. Together with all-new and immersive production, dancers can look forward to a revitalized soundtrack with a mix of new and returning residents, thrilling new headliners, and inventive debutants, making this a truly spectacular season.
Always at the forefront of underground house and techno, ANTS 10 YEARS STRONG will be a season-long celebration of cutting-edge music and spectacular immersive productions on a scale never seen before. The iconic Ushuaïa Ibiza will be fully transformed, its epic pool stage at the centre of the action as innovative audio-visuals take you into another dimension.
The season starts with three day-into-night events which will take place across both Ushuaïa & Hï Ibiza. They will feature carefully curated line-ups that celebrate all that is loved about the ANTS sound, with plenty of fresh additions that take the party into the next chapter and set an unthinkably high standard for the entire season ahead. This is truly going to be a year to remember.
The season-long residents are at the heart of each ANTS party and this year include long-time ANTS favourite Andrea Oliva, Brazilian hitmaker and dominating house presence Vintage Culture, the ever-present White Isle talent Chelina Manuhutu, breakout UK star SYREETA, tech house titan and Saved Record boss Nic Fanciulli and fellow tech talent Francisco Allendes.
The season starts with three day-into-night events which will take place across both Ushuaïa & Hï Ibiza, featuring carefully curated line-ups that celebrate all that is loved about the ANTS sound. Amongst many other names, watch out for headline performances from melody master Kölsch and the irrepressible party starter that is Bristol’s Eats Everything at the epic Opening Party on 6th May. The second day-into-night event on 13th May sees ANTS residents joined by acts including globe-trotting Manchester pair Solardo, Richy Ahmed and lots more, whilst 20th May brings performances from the globally renowned Drumcode chief Adam Beyer, a special b2b set from Andrea Oliva and Davide Squillace and plenty of fresh additions that take the party into the next chapter.

These much-anticipated debutANTS include live French electronic music trio Oden & Fatzo (live), longtime island favourite Tini Gessler, Moon Harbour artist Melanie Ribbe, the low slung minimal tech of cult dj East End Dubs, and acclaimed Romanian DJ & producer Mahony.

ANTS started as a party to give back to the island’s dedicated community of workers, which means it has always catered to the most in the know music lovers and offered only the most authentic soundtracks and party experiences. This pioneering approach proved such a hit that ANTS has grown to become one of the most recognisable brands in clubland with a global “colony” of passionate music lovers. As well as its legendary Ibiza residency at Ushuaïa Ibiza, ANTS regularly hosts unique events and stages around the world, marching into leading clubs and festivals like Printworks, Fabrik, Tomorrowland, Snowbombing, BPM Festival, and many more.
