On August 8th a tale from the north comes to Cova Santa. elrow and Absolut present Midsommar - a natural phenomenon from the north where, on this day of the year, the sun never sets… The Swedish Midsommar is the celebration of the longest day of the year. Where family and friends join together in merriment to honour the arrival of Midsommar. A mighty force, whose warm seduction leads guests into the party and inspires the light to keep night at bay.
In production and creative collaboration with "Storytellers Ibiza", who will be recreating the spirit of Sweden’s longest day of the year called MIDSOMMAR for one day and one night only this summer… A celebration of love and fertility, dancing & games, theatrics & music, eating & drinking, summer flowers and powerful dreams. Line up to be announced soon.
Celebrations will kick off at 5pm in true Midsommar spirit. From 7pm there’ll be plenty of activities to interact with, such as roaming musical acts, mind blowing magicians and a series of games for those who love to play. You will also find traditional Swedish workshops, where you will have the opportunity to make your own flower crown or a strawberry cake. At 8pm the party will truly ramp up, with the ceremonial raising of the Maypole, a key moment of the Midsommar tradition. Performers will evoke this dancing frenzy by encouraging guests to join them in an explosion of dance around the Maypole!
If by midnight you haven’t had enough fun, the party continues in the club at Cova Santa, where you will be able to continue dancing until the early hours with exclusive performances in a stunning floral setting.
