For generations, Ibiza has been a magnet for explorers and dreamers, attracting creative and free-spirited minds from around the world. They still come, of course, but the islands is attracting an internationally diverse group of entrepreneurs, movers and shakers who not only want to experience all the White Isle has to offer, but also want to leave their mark in a collaborative and sustainable way. Here are just a few of our wonderful friends who are doing just that…
How long have you lived here? What brought you to Ibiza and why?
I’ve been living on the island for seven years. We sailed in from Barcelona when the Port Vell was reformed to only berth super yachts.
What do you do here? How would you describe your typical work day?
I run an international live music booking agency called Get Your Acts Together (GYAT). I run the music programme in a venue I co-own in Ibiza called La Mezcaleria, and I also ride around promoting cool free-ride electric LMX bikes and sail around the islands.
What positive changes have you seen in Ibiza over the years and what would you like to see improve?
More people are coming over to live or visit the beautiful nature of Ibiza and less for the clubbing scene. I hope it keeps developing in this way and that the councils around the island start supporting live music a lot more!
Where do you see the island in five years?
In a very good place, with active like- minded people, interacting and collaborating to increase the island’s cultural offering and creating original projects and concepts to improve the way we live in Ibiza and around the world.
Where do you go in Ibiza to escape the crowds in the summer and what are your favourite Winter hideouts?
On my sailing boat or to secret beaches which are only reachable with an LMX 161H free-ride electric silent bike!
