Ibiza: The Island of Two Faces

The small Balearic island of Ibiza attracts almost three million tourists every summer. With its legendary nightlife and iconic DJs, it has the reputation as a kind of Disneyland for adults. But hardly anyone has seen all the different facets of this extraordinary island. Far from the clubs, parties and tourists, there is a wilder and commercially unknown side of Ibiza. Deep within the natural world, the last remaining island rebels live in caves, hidden from the rest of the society. 

Superstar DJ Bob Sinclar has been mixing here for twenty years. But even today, he still feels the pressure. Every night, he has to fill the clubs and there is a lot of competition. The best DJs from all over the world are here for the biggest parties. Some of the clubs can take up to 8 thousand people

Far from the commercial madness, Ismael lives in cave, alongside other likeminded people. For them, the island has magical properties. Legend has it that the rock formation just of the coast of the island is one of the most powerful energetic centres in the universe.
