Mykonos party scene 2017

 Cavo Paradiso Mykonos party events

Cavo Paradiso will hold its opening party on May 13, and will host parties on four other nights during the month — May 20, 24, 26 and 30.  There also will be events on June 1, 4, and 6 with more June events expected to be announced soon. Details of the acts appearing for the May and June parties can be found in the Mykonos event listings below.

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. 

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…

      • Thanks for the response Maounas, I will definitely check those out!

      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.

    Any info would be great!!

      Paradise Club won’t be open then. 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.

      You’ll want to be in or very close to Mykonos Town so you and the kids will be easy walking distance to all the nightlife, restaurants, shops, etc. Check hotel listings on sites like booking.com and TripAdvisor to see what’s available at the prices you’re willing to pay for your specific travel dates.

    Hi. We are in Mykonos from 23rd April to 26th april. Which are the most happening night clubs and lounges that would be open during this time. Your suggestions will definitely help us decide accordingly.

      Check through my blog post to see party announcements for that period of time. The post lists opening dates for places that are starting up in April. You’ll have to check out the various places to see which are the “most happening” because I can’t tell you where everybody is going to be gathering on those nights.

  9. Hey I will be in Mykonos April 8-10th. Any Boat events?

    • admin

      April 8, 2017 at 10:05 am

      None that I am aware of. It’s too early in the season — not enough tourists on the island. But ask around in some of the travel agencies / ferry ticket offices when you get to Mykonos and you’ll find out if anything is available.

  10. Hi, I’m planning on being there from June 9-13. How will the scene be on those dates? I’m hoping it won’t be too dead.

    • admin

      April 8, 2017 at 10:03 am

      It definitely won’t be dead, but don’t expect wall-to-wall people — the big crowds arrive during July and August. You will still have a great time!

    • Hi! I will also be there for that weekend. Have you been? Is it difficult to navigate where the parties are as a solo traveler?
      Hopefully there will be some good DJS or events happening. 😀

        Shannen, it’s easy to get around Mykonos Town to go from one bar/club to another …. it’s really not that big a place. Most bars are located on or close to the harbourfront and Little Venice seafront areas, at or near Lakka Square, as well as on or very close to the main shopping streets (which you won’t have any trouble finding because they’re lined with shops).

  11. Hi, My friends and I will be traveling to Mykonos Aug 2-6th. We were told to rent ATV’s but is this mandatory to get to the beach Parties? We are staying in dtown Mykonos, I heard August will be impossible to find a cab on the island and was wondering if a bus would be just as efficient. Not sure how late they run and if there close to the beach parties south of Mykonos? We are staying at Poseidon Hotel Suites, do you know if they arrange drivers possibly also? We are 5-6 gpeople and would like the easiest way of transportation. We wanted to rent a small car but heard also Parking will be impossible?? Any info would be helpful. Thanks

      August is peak travel season and on Mykonos that means peak service by the local bus system. Yes, you can get to the main beaches by bus and it’s the cheapest and best way to travel to beaches. Since there is going to be 5 or 6 of you, taking taxis is not practical since you would need to call for two taxis. ATVs are a bad idea, especially if you plan to drink at the parties. Buses will run practically all night long to Paradise beach in August, so it will be easy for you to get to any of the overnight parties at Cavo Paradiso or Paradise Club. And there is a shuttle bus service available for Super Paradise beach. Poseidon Hotel is a very short walk from Fabrika Square where you catch the bus to Paradise and several other major beaches including Paraga (in case you want to go to Scorpios) and Psaou (in case you want to party at Nammos). Your hotel staff will be able to tell you where to catch buses for specific beaches. I highly doubt the hotel will offer a shuttle service for beach parties. I have never heard of a hotel offering this.

  12. Hi,

    How are things there between May 13-22? I know it’s earlier in the season but wondering if the normal spots there will still be really fun at that point of the summer. Thanks much.

      Mid May is still early season so the summer crowds haven’t yet built up. But plenty of party places will be open and you’ll have a great time. It’s also likely that Cavo Paradiso will be opening during that timeframe so you might be able to go to a couple of events there including the opening night party. They still haven’t announced their opening weekend, but it’s usually the third weekend in May.

  13. Hi, myself and a few friends are coming in April 28-May 2nd. We know its early for the party scene but its the only time we could book due to work. Any suggestions on nightlife during that time? We did some research and it looks like a few places like Tropicana (opening night 27th) & Guapaloca Bar will be open.

      Well if you had researched my blog post you would have seen that a lot more bars and clubs will be open besides the two you mentioned.

  14. Hi me and my mates are coming to Mykonos end of June and staying at ACvillage christoulis not far from airport. Now I have seen locations of the bars etc in the town I am a bit worried we are to far out? How long would it take to get to the town from there and what’s the costs of taxi and busses?

    • admin

      April 22, 2017 at 2:04 pm

      Definitely not a convenient location since it’s on the opposite side of the airport from town, according to its map location. That means you would have nearly a 2 kilometer drive to get around the airport and to the heart of town where the nightlife is. Can’t tell you what a taxi would cost because I’ve never taken one from or two the location you’ll be staying in. I would guess €15 one way. Keep in mind taxis take only four people maximum.

  15. Hey what is a good place where to take my mother in her 50´s? Good music and some dancing will be great

  16. Hi I’m going to mykonos on the 13th of May and i would like to go to the opening party at cavo paradise but wondering is there transport back to mykonos town late at night and do i have to buy tickets before hand. Thank you

  17. Hi,

    Any events on from 20th-27th July 2017?

    thanks

    • admin

      April 25, 2017 at 1:53 pm

      Lots of events at that time! But they haven’t been announced yet. I list events when information about them is released, and it’s way too early for clubs to be releasing their July schedules.

  18. Hi we are 4 guys, and we will stay in mykons from 28th april till 1st of May, any suggestion for good parties? Thabks!
