An illegal rave in Ibiza lead to 70 arrests and multiple hospitalisations

The illegal party took place at Cala Conta

An illegal rave in Ibiza has lead to arrests and hospitalisations.

The rave took place last weekend at a protected woodland area near popular tourist beach Cala Conta, a 15-minute drive from San Antonio.

Enrique Gomez, chief of the Civil Guard, stated that the illegal rave had approximately 1000 people in attendance on Saturday night, with 200 people at the scene when 40 police officers arrived on Sunday morning. 

Ibiza's newspaper, Diario de Ibiza, reported that 73 people were arrested and that 11 police officers were injured following the arrival of law enforcement at the scene.

Those arrested were detained for misdemeanors such as resisting arrest, assaulting police officers and disobedience.

In July, police in the UK took 20 hours to shut down an illegal rave in Norfolk.

Last week a beach in San Antonio Bay was closed indefinitely due to E.coli contamination.
