The Ibiza council has decided to crack down on previously warned San Antonio bars and nightclubs due to ongoing complaints surrounding noise levels in the area.
9 venues are set to be forced to close for up to two weeks during the island’s busiest summer period, while terraces in the area that would normally close at 2am will be shutting up shop at 11pm, with fines totaling £8,036 being slapped upon the venues altogether.
The measures follow up plenty of other restrictions set upon clubs and promoters on the island as the council and residents look to loosen the grip that party culture holds on the area, especially during the rampant summer months.
Said restrictions depend on an upcoming vote that is set to take place this month which will determine whether the region of San Antonio will become an area of Special Acoustic Protection.
Existing measures include venues in the area implementing further noise cancelling installations as well as noise limiters as the council looks to work through 44 pending noise complaints that date back as far as last summer.
As the debacle over noise pollution continues to rage on, no new bars or clubs may open in that region.
