OCIO proposes an island-wide ban for DJs playing illegal raves

Ibiza nightlife organisational body, Ocio de Ibiza, has proposed a ban on DJs that play illegal raves and parties, citing the issue as an “endemic problem.”

Ocio de Ibiza is an organisational body that represents the Ibiza nightlife community. José Luis Benítez – the head of OCIO – has proposed a ban on all DJs and producers that have played at illegal parties and raves on the island throughout the pandemic.

Speaking regarding the proposal, he said: “We are very concerned because [illegal parties] are an endemic problem on the island and, unfortunately, the police can’t stop them.”

Going on to say: “The police are doing an incredible job, but they can’t get access, and so it’s time to think about taking action against the suppliers and the staff working there, including the DJs.”

Over recent weeks, videos have started to appear on social media platforms of DJs allegedly playing at mansion and villa hosted parties.

Mr Benitez has responded to the video emergence by saying:
“These are places with no health measures, where no standards whatsoever are met, so we should ban them.”

The outcome of this proposal will make for interesting viewing. Many other countries have been swamped with illegal parties throughout the lockdown restrictions and have widely been dubbed “plague raves.”

Similar proposal ideas have been floating around. However, the OCIO plan is the first, officially, of its kind.
