IBN: Ibiza life is a magazine in English and Russian dedicate to Ibiza…Explain to us the project of your review…
Viktor :“From just an idea a year ago, it’s been a wild journey to see the first magazine done this season. I never imagined we would have this first issue ready by now because we started from zero. Our goal was to create a bilingual magazine, a new media way which can be interesting also for Russians more than any other magazines in Ibiza, however big or glam it looks. I would like to thank all my friends and everyone else who has supported our work over the last year. Action is the key to change!”
IBN: Russia and Ibiza.. how is the relationship and why Russians love the magic island?
Viktor: “I am convinced that the Russians love the island as well as others, nationality is irrelevant here. Just in recent years for the Russians Ibiza has become more accessible. And as we know Ibiza is not just a island. Everyone who leave will be changed forever”.
IBN: Why Ibiza Life?
Viktor: “We have chosen a log under certain things: the quality in the environment in which we live. It seems to me that it’s happened. Any person today can read many glossy magazines.
But the kind of genre you as the reader does not lead anywhere, it does not extend the limits of human thought, and does not reflect on the value of things. We focused on the content and texts. Of course, the magazine language probably is far from standardized texts and in any form. Each of us has its own language in which we communicate. The Ibiza Life is ours. However, whatever language we speak, we need to maintain and expand it. DJs also has its own language. And so is the music. And be able to speak the beautiful language. In general, it is necessary to rejoice. We need to try to be happy. The magazine will be about how to feel happy!”.
IBN : Do you think that the presence of Russian community will
increase next years and if yes why?
Viktor:” There is not any particular reasons why the Russian tourists growth is so evident in Ibiza over the last two years. In the past, the Russians getting to Ibiza was a mystery to all. Now the visa regime between Spain and Russia had become friendly. Schengen area has played a big role as well. Tourism departments facts proves, The number of Russians who visited Ibiza during the last year has increased by double digits. Infrastructure between Russia and Ibiza has improved. Today’s Zeitgeist..”.
IBN:Summer 2013.. your opinion and balance about Ibiza
Viktor:“We know Ibiza became one of the most fashionable destinations over the last years. In the sense of changes a progress driven by the power of money has turned into a monstrosity. Here I can quote one of our magazines heros – Today all of this resembles an amusement park. But on the whole thing I am looking very philosophical. Musically very delighted that alongside huge mainstream popularity, while the island of progressing in the opposite musical front. It can hardly be described as underground direction but see Music On, Enter or Circoloco measures the popularity of the island was particularly pleasing to the general musical context. Тendences become common to all”.

Viktor: “Releasing magazine in Ibiza is a big acknowledge. It Takes time and patienc . For the Ibiza I’m a little superstitious. Time will show “.
