A-Fest Europe 2017 will be held in beautiful Ibiza — an exotic paradise island in the Mediterranean Sea off the east coast of Spain.

One of the hottest holiday destinations in Europe, at first glance Ibiza is a sun-kissed, beach-bejewelled, pine-clad island, perfect for sunseekers.

But there is more to Ibiza than meets the eye…

Step off the beaten track for a visit to a secluded north-coast cove to discover Ibiza's peaceful and spiritual side, or roam the ramparts of Ibiza City's Unesco-listed Dalt Vila to immerse yourself in the island's rich heritage. Not to mention, the sunsets are out of this world.

We invite you to spend four unforgettable days with us from Wednesday, May 17 until Saturday, May 20 in jaw dropping Ibiza with a few hundred of the world’s most brilliant and inspiring leaders, change-makers and thought leaders.

THEME

 

Love & Relationships

The theme of this event is around Love & Relationships. Love is one of the most beautiful, and most difficult, aspects of being human. It’s the element of life that most connects with our sense of happiness and self-worth, yet our education systems have failed to teach us how to excel in it.

Together, at A-Fest Ibiza, we will explore new ideas, models and systems to become the best you can be as a friend, child, parent, spouse, lover, or partner.
This is truly life-changing, results-exploding, transformative stuff... and taught by some of the most admired and influential relationship experts in the world.

Agenda and Speakers

What can I expect at A-Fest?
A-Fest is not a traditional seminar. It’s an event that brings together people who have, by nature, a desire to impact the world and to help push humanity forward. At A-Fest, you’ll get powerful training on a particular theme, profound mind shifts, groundbreaking ideas, deep connections and unique opportunities to give back, so you can play an even bigger game and significantly expand your ability to accomplish bold things. While you can still expect mind-blowing stage presentations from world renowned speakers, you’ll also get to experience incredible parties and excursions, mind-blowing workshops and much, much more.

What’s the theme of A-Fest Ibiza?
The theme of this event is around Love & Relationships. Love is one of the most beautiful, and most difficult, aspects of being human. It’s the element of life that most connects with our sense of happiness and self-worth, yet our education systems have failed to teach us how to excel in it.

Together, at A-Fest Ibiza, we will explore new ideas, models and systems to become the best you can be as a friend, child, parent, spouse, lover, or partner.
This is truly life-changing, results-exploding, transformative stuff... and taught by some of the most admired and influential relationship experts in the world.

What’s the start and end time each day?
The seminar session starts at 10:30AM sharp and ends around 6PM. However, we also have optional morning activities and evening events planned, so don’t make any plans for the evenings because you can expect a lot of fun from early in the morning until well into the night! For all off-site evening events, we’ll have an early and late departure so you can choose which works best for you.

How much free time can I expect?
The short answer is very little. You’ll have an hour or so after each day to relax, eat, meditate, shower, etc. before the evening events begin. Of course, it’s completely optional whether you’d like to attend or not, but we can assure you, you don’t want to miss out. We have some amazing experiences planned that are included in the event ticket price. If you’re looking for more free time, we recommend arriving early or leaving a few days after.

What’s the difference between A-Fest Europe and West?
In general, the content is the same; high quality invite-only attendees, speakers and workshops focusing on personal and professional development and incredible parties, excursions and networking opportunities. The main difference between A-Fest Europe and West is the theme, location and lineup of speakers.

What is Give Back Day and how can I participate?
The day after A-Fest, on Sunday, May 21st, you’ll get the chance to “spread the awesomeness” with a volunteer project that will help give back to the local community.

Check out this blog post on our most recent Give Back Day event.

Which hotel should I stay at between The Hard Rock & Ushuaia Beach Hotel?
A-Fest Ibiza will take place at The Hard Rock & Ushuaia Beach Hotels, two hotels which run parallel to each another.

Ushuaia is for adults only while Hard Rock is family friendly hotel. If you prefer a more quiet atmosphere, then we'd recommend to stay at Hard Rock, as we are currently not planning any outdoor A-Fest parties on the Hard Rock property.

Should I be concerned about staying in a hotel renowned for parties?
Ibiza's Playa d'en Bossa, where A-Fest will take place, is famous for the party scene and vibrant nightlife, however please note that the Ibiza party season starts in June. May is a relatively a quiet month when the nightclubs are not open and many families fly down to Ibiza for their vacations. A-Fest takes place before the grand opening of the party season.

During A-Fest, there will not be any big parties happening at the hotels besides the A-Fest events. Both The Hard Rock & Ushuaia Beach Hotels have a curfew of 12AM and loud music is not permitted after midnight.

How can I book a room at the hotel?
More information on how to book a hotel room at a special A-Fest discounted rate will be provided once you purchase your ticket.

What date range does the discounted room rates apply?
Since we realize that you might want to take advantage of your time in Ibiza and spend a few extra days there, we’ve made sure our special group rate is valid for the 3 days prior to and 3 days after the event. Rooms booked after our room block sells out may be reserved at a higher rate per night and subject to availability.

I need a roomie. What should I do?
We’ve got you covered! You’ll be able to share your dates and preferences in a special document in our Facebook group and connect with people with the same preferences after you’ve purchased your ticket.

Are there any child services at the hotel?

Children aged 3 to 12 can enjoy a full day at the Roxity Kids Club located in Hard Rock Hotel. The club is fully and professionally supervised and filled with adventures and activities that they will enjoy while giving parents time on their own to spend vacation time their way. Parents will be given a pager in case the supervisor needs to get a hold of them.

You can find more information here >> 

Is there Wi-Fi at the hotel?
Wifi is provided complimentary in rooms and throughout the hotel.

Packing Guide

What is the dress code?
During the day, you’ll want to wear something comfortable and casual. Something you can move in! In the evening, pretty much anything goes. Ladies, pack dresses and heels if you are feeling inspired, and guys, feel free to pack a shirt and dress pants if you wish… it’s totally up to you! Many of our evening events take place outdoors, and sometimes on the sand, so ladies, it’s a good idea to pack some flat shoes. You'd want to also bring a jacket or something to keep you warm as evening might get a little bit chilly outdoors.

And make sure you save some room for your party costumes which we will announce soon.

Also, each morning of the event we’ll have yoga, fitness and meditation classes. Make sure you pack exercise friendly clothing and shoes if you want to join in! Yoga mats will not be available for the classes, so we recommend that you bring your own..

What should I bring with me?
The most important thing is a positive attitude and the willingness to have a lot of fun! As always we’ll have epic theme parties happening at A-Fest and we’ll make sure to let you know what costume you should bring with you.

Where can I get more information?
If you still have any questions regarding what you can expect at A-Fest, please e-mail us at support@awesomenessfest.com.
