The History of Ants


ANTS began in 2013 at Ushuaïa Ibiza as a party for the workers community on the island. With a focus on underground house and techno and a mission to give back to the people who help make the island function during the crazy summer months. ANTS has maintained its residency from early afternoon until midnight each Saturday during the season from that day on.

Over the next decade, ANTS has developed into one of the most successful events on the White Isle and has transcended into an international brand, taking the underground sounds of house and techno around the world with ANTS TOUR.

Our international expansion has seen ANTS hosting events and stages at the world’s leading clubs and festivals, including Printworks, Fabrik, Tomorrowland, Snowbombing, Extrema Outdoor, Miami Music Week, BPM Festivals in Mexico and Portugal and many more.

ANTS prides itself on being at the forefront of underground house and techno, delivering spectacular immersive productions and creating a global “colony” of passionate music lovers.

From the Fritz Lang-inspired Metropolis to the sci-fi B-movie spectacular that was the ANTS Invasion, each year the ANTS experience features jaw-dropping production to take you into another dimension.

In 2023 ANTS looked to the future with ANTS 10 YEARS STRONG, welcoming a host of new talent to join lineups and crowning our first ever ANTS: NEXT GEN competition winner.

To celebrate a decade at the forefront of underground electronic music, ANTS 10 YEARS STRONG featured a DJ booth set into an enormous tiered birthday cake that towered over the Ushuaïa Ibiza dancefloor.

ANTS enters 2024 focused firmly on the future. Kicking off with two day-into-night events across Ushuaïa & Hï Ibiza, ANTS will run for an enhanced 23-week season every Saturday this summer.

A diverse, forward-thinking music program featuring cutting-edge artists, stars of tomorrow and scene innovators will showcase the most credible club sounds each week at Ushuaïa Ibiza.
