Mykonos party scene 2017

Semeli Bar Mykonos 2017 opening

  Semeli Bar starts its season on April 12

Excitement building: It’s still winter but people have been messaging me for more than two months to ask for information about party schedules and special events taking place on Mykonos this summer.  I wish I could tell you specific dates that top DJs will be appearing on the island, but the simple truth is that it’s just too early — the island’s biggest and most popular clubs typically don’t announce their full summer party rosters and DJ lineups until late May or mid-June.

So far, only one venue — Scarpa Bar at the Little Venice seafront — has offered a hint of what’s in store for this  summer.  Scarpa this week announced that Dino MFU will be notching his 10th anniversary of summer residency at the club, so a series of special parties will be held over the course of the summer to mark the occasion.  Scarpa also announced that Ms. Lefki and Ionas Feenstra will be Scarpa’s other resident DJs, while the club has been upgraded with new sound and light systems. Dino will be on the decks for the bar’s official opening parties on Friday April 7 and Saturday April 8.

 

 

Another popular party spot in Mykonos Town, Room 101, also will be opening on Friday April 7, while  Nammos, the iconic restaurant and beach bar venue at Psarou beach,  will open on April 8.  Buddha-Bar Beach, at the Santa Marina resort at Ornos, starts its season on Monday May 15.

Speaking of Nammos, it will be hosting DJ Vassili TsiliChristos and his hugely popular Made in Mykonos party again this summer. Mark your calendar for Saturday July 29 if you’re planning to attend. 

 

Nammos Mykonos party event 2017

Nammos at Psarou beach will once again present DJ Vassili TsiliChristos and his Made in Mykonos show, one of the most popular annual parties on the island. This year’s event takes place on July 29.

 

I can also give you the dates for the XLSIOR Festival, the biggest annual party and music event on Mykonos. One of the world’s premier gay festivals, it will feature daytime and night parties at various beaches, bars and clubs around the island from August 23 to 30, and is expecting as many as 30,000 participants from around the globe. Full party schedules and DJ lineups for XLSIOR won’t be released until early August, though, so there’s nothing more I can tell you at this time about specific party themes or which DJs will be on the decks for each event.

When are the best parties? For those of you who haven’t been to Mykonos before but are planning to visit this year, keep in mind that peak travel season — as well as peak party season — is during July and August, with August being the wildest and most crowded month on the island. If you like things crazy-busy, and want to catch appearances by the world’s top DJs, August is absolutely the best time to go. If you can’t make it that month, July is almost as good — there’s nearly as many events taking place, and plenty of leading international DJs will be headlining at the clubs then as well. 

Since Mykonos is primarily a summer destination, the party scene can seem low-key or sometimes even subdued during months other than July and August. That’s because the big holiday crowds haven’t yet hit the island, so the partying doesn’t get as fierce and frenzied in May, June or September as it does during of peak season.  

 

The most popular place to chill, dine, drink and party on Mykonos last year was Scorpios, and its Sneaky Sundays event featuring Sneaky Sound System was the hottest weekly party on the island

 

Paradise Club is perennially one of the most popular party spots on the island. It’s at Paradise beach — for years the top party beach on Mykonos.

  1. I’m planning on being there from April 13th through the 24th (28 year old male, like to party), and I know it’s pretty early on in the season but it’s also during the Orthodox Easter time frame…any suggestions? Should I schedule later on in the season or will there be enough parties to entertain me for a few days?

    • Hi Eddie, well there is always a good party in Mykonos. You can check Scarpa Bar at Mykonos Town it’s a “must” with great vibe and atomosphere, also don’t miss Paradise Club which is the best club in Mykonos, and is amazing no matter what time of day…

      Events taking place on those days have not been announced yet. No word yet either on when Cavo and Paradise club are holding their opening parties.

  4. When will the line-ups for 2017 be released? It’s not far away but we need to plan the holiday around Cavo / Super Paradise DJs.

      Paradise Club won’t be open there. Neither will Cavo Paradiso. The big clubs don’t open until May.

  7. Hi, Thanks for all the info. My husband and I will be traveling with two 21 year old college students in June. Trying to find a place close enough to the nightlife for the college kids , yet not to crazy for us. We are knocking on the door of 50, but we still are a very active family. We often join the nightlife, but also like nice dinners and outdoor activities. Would like the kids to be able to walk to and from night clubs, ect.. Could you recommend a good hotel or villa, apt ect…, that has sea views but still close enough to the fun? Thanks for any help.
