Privilege Ibiza will be partially closed this season following a San Antonio council ruling.

The San Rafael address made headlines last winter when authorities suspended its license after discovering structural elements had been illegally modified in a bid to increase the venue's capacity, which is officially 10,000. 

Work has been undertaken to rectify the situation, but the Coco Loco and Pyramid rooms will remain closed. The Main Room and Vista Club will open as normal, meaning regular residencies such as Resistance can still make the most of the enormous space, as will the one-off Drumcode showcase in August.

It's the latest in a string of bad news for venues on the island. Amnesia also had its license suspended before Christmas, but has now opened for the season as normal. Meanwhile, €1.4million in fines have been handed out to numerous addresses in San Antonio since 2017, mainly due to noise pollution.
