When an Ibiza icon like Carl Cox is saying "Ibiza's crown is slipping", it gives you something to think about. Is the White Isle, a party paradise for over three decades, really losing its golden touch?
Some will say it's far too expensive. A fair shout, bearing in mind a bottle of water in a club will set you back €12. Others claim the growing VIP-friendly aspect goes against the free-spirited basis the island prided itself on its early party days.
That's not to say there's still not a lot of amazing shit going on, though. Just check out our review of this year's opening party at Underground.
Not just a place for a rave blow-out, Ibiza's also an island of serene beauty, with plenty of spots to relax your mind and dine out in fancy waterside restaurants.
Below, some of Ibiza's major DJs tell us why Ibiza still matters.
