Official figures have been revealed for this year's attendance to Ibiza.

According to reports pulled from Diario De Ibiza, exactly 7,109,115 visitors were present in Ibiza in 2016, a 14.6 per cent spike from last year's demographics. Year after year, the island's tourism proves to bring a steady flow of economic gain and nourishes it's rich music culture, yet it seems the future of Ibiza's music scene is ever changing.

In 2016, super-clubs like Amnesia, Pacha and Ushuaia were raided by authorities, the globally renowned DC-10 was punished for noise level complaints at this year's closing party and the city's council announced efforts to ban future open-air venues. The iconic Space Ibiza also closed.

Seems that dance music fans and tourists seeking sunshine are still very much into the idea of an Ibiza holiday though!
