Saturday July 25 2020. That’s the day DJ Vasili TsiliChristos brings his annual Made in Mykonos party to the tony Nammos restaurant and bar complex at Psarou beach. It’s the biggest single-night party to take place on Mykonos each summer. Check out the official aftermovie from the 2019 event (above) to see what it’s all about.
Beach party season starts Thursday April 23 at Tropicana
It’s off-season in Mykonos right now, and the island’s legendary party scene is on hiatus for the winter while bar, beach club and nightclub staff recover from the crazy-busy summer of 2019.
The 2020 opening dates for most bars and clubs won’t be announced until closer to spring, and detailed calendars for DJ shows and special events won’t be available until late May or early June. However, Tropicana club at Paradise beach has announced that it will be kicking off its 2020 season on April 23, and both Paradise Club and Guapaloca Bar (also at Paradise beach) are expecting to reopen in April, too.
And as you can see in this post, dates have been set for the island’s biggest annual events — DJ Vasili TsiliChristos’s Made in Mykonos Party at Nammos in July, and the weeklong XLSIOR Mykonos Festival in August.
I will update this post with more opening announcements when they are released, so check back from time to time to see what’s new.
In the meantime, there is nightlife on Mykonos during winter months, but the party scene is much more low-key and geared to island residents with occasional events featuring local DJs and live performances by local and Greek musicians and singers.

The exact opening date hasn’t yet been announced for Paradise Club (top) and Guaploca Bar (bottom), but the two venues are promising to launch their next party season sometime in April 2020.
The annual XLSIOR Mykonos Festival will take place August 19 to 26. It’s one of the biggest annual gay festivals in the world, and the biggest multi-day party event to take place on Mykonos each summer. Above is the official aftermovie for XLSIOR’s 10th anniversary celebrations in 2019.
XLSIOR Festival usually doesn’t announce its party lineup until August, but in mid-February it released this image to promote the highlight of its 2020 program, the XLSIOR Beach Party.This event has been set for Thursday August 20 and will feature “a totally different concept that will blow your mind and get you dancing in the rhythm of the summer,” organizers say.
