Council criticise reality TV show


1201IBIZA – Ibiza Council and Tourism Foundation criticise the reality show ‘Blue Go Mad in Ibiza’ for promoting Ibiza as an “island of excesses”.

The reality TV show shot last summer in San Antonio features the pop group Blue and their attempt to open an entertainment bar on the promenade and successfully run it for two weeks. Featuring scenes of a sexual nature and heavy alcohol consumption, the program was first aired on ITV 2 earlier this month.

A statement from the Council said “The Consell and the Foundation regret that there are companies and entrepreneurs in Ibiza willing to collaborate in such programs, regardless of the negative image they portray.” The Council also criticised the show for acting “contrary” to the line the Council itself has encouraged, namely “to diversify the tourism product of Ibiza” in order to extend the season. The series continues on Tuesday.
