Who doesn’t like a little bit of Acid (Mondays) and Soul of the Deep City variety, whilst supporting a poignant Ibiza charity and being fed some amazing food at the same time? As recently highlighted by Seth Troxler at the annual IMS Music Conference and adding voice to the island community echo’s that have heightened over the past few years about the often overlooked homeless problem.
A staggering rise in the holiday population and major money players on the island has created an enormous housing issue in the world’s most renowned party destinations. As publicised by the standard press there is currently a major blockage between income and availability of affordable housing, many clubs citing they are unable to take on new staff as they cannot either find suitable accommodation or afford to reside and work on a minimal wage favoured by clubland. Sadly, this is only the public tip of the iceberg. There are approximately 500 people, including families and children living rough as they cannot afford or have been left homeless due to the spiralling costs and greed of landlords.
This issue is deep in comparison to the thoughtless abandon of the islands party people primarily concerned with what night of the week is best to attend. The positive flip of the situation is it is still within that capacity to be addressed, early. Thanks to a recent collaborative effort from known Ibiza faces, Music Supper Club and their ‘We Are Man-Kind’ events are here to highlight and also spearhead support and change. Electric Mode will be supporting the campaign through their #houseibiza tag.
The much anticipated Music Supper Club (brought to you by BWell, Everyday Giving the charitable arm of The Everyday Agency and To The Point,Ibiza) launches this summer on the notorious white island of Ibiza. On 29th June, they deliver an experiential journey that will excite your senses and awaken your soul as you embark on the Music Supper Club experience at the infamous Pikes Hotel.

Music is a great connector and motivator, whilst hearty food will not only rebalance and restore, it will also bring us together as a community collective to assist those immediately in need …

The meticulously curated procession of dishes have been sourced by Ruby’s very own chef Abby and Selina Ingram from the Bwell Kitchen. Prepared with passion, guests will be presented with a three-course meal catering for both vegan and vegetarians, accompanied by boutique cocktails and hand chosen wines to top off the night.
