New laws lead to €1.4 million in fines for Ibiza venues

Ibiza’s West End venues have been fined a total of €1.4 million since the introduction of new licensing laws, as Mixmag reports.

Introduced in March last year, the laws mean that sound levels in venues in the West End, San Antonio are limited, while their curfew was reduced from 5am to 3am.

Diario de Ibiza reports 345 complaints have been received since the West End was made a Special Acoustic Protection Zone in 2017. €630,000 (£542,000) in fines is currently being collected by the San Antonio tax office, while €747,000 (£642,000) is being processed at the time of writing. The second amount is to be split between 20 venues.
