Festivals in Ibiza 2020: from jazz to electronic music
Every year, Ibiza makes its offer of art and music festivals for the summer season even better. In fact, in 2020, a new event has been added to the island’s calendar beyond the summer: the new International Festival Jazz Point. With this effort to breathe life into the winter cultural scene we will begin our selection of festivals in Ibiza.
