Today we have learned the sad news of the passing of music legend, DJ Jose Padilla, the creator of the Cafe Del Mar compilations.
Words cannot express our sadness at this time and we send our love and condolences to DJ Padilla’s family and friends.
The Cafe Del Mar compilations reached us in Melbourne, Australia before we even knew of the island of Ibiza and the change discovering this magical place would make in our lives. 

The song ‘Tones’ by Marc Durif on Cafe Del Mar Volumen Tres had such magical properties that it propelled our quest and journey from Melbourne to London, Paris and Cannes until finally resting in Ibiza where it took over 10 years to bring the Ibiza Burlesque Festival vision to life.  

In a Twitter statement by Cafe Del Mar have stated ‘José Padilla chilled a generation of clubbers and his art touched the lives of millions. He will always be remembered as the Godfather of Chillout, creator of Café del Mar compilations, and true Ibiza Legend.’
Rest in peace, your music will stay on the planet uplifting generations forever. Love the Ibiza Burlesque Festival team.

Sunday 26 April 2020 –
Join the launch of World Burlesque Day, an international day and celebration of all things burlesque created by our founder – showgirl, author and mental health ambassador, Sapphira.

Owner of the event production company, Sapphira’s Showgirls, who produce our annual Ibiza Burlesque Festival and World Record Events #BurlesqueAPeel, Sapphira is author of the mental health recovery story Burlesque or BustWorld Burlesque Day supports Sapphira’s vision that ‘everybody should try burlesque for their self confidence at last once in a lifetime’ following her own profound self-acceptance since first setting foot on stage in 2004. The epiphany of  escapism in this beautiful art-form came after she had been hospitalised with a one-time episode severe bipolar at age 21 and she credits burlesque as the tonic for finding herself again.

The celebration coincides with the commemoration of burlesque legend Gypsy Rose Lee and the anniversary of her sad passing on the same day 50 years ago in 1970 and honours the immense contribution Gypsy made to paving the way for those who have followed in her glittering footsteps.

Suicide is among the top 20 causes of death in worldwide for people of all ages but with your help we can improve awareness and help people get the support they need when they need it most.

Our founder, Sapphira, has been campaigning to increase the conversation around mental health issues since publishing her autobiography, Burlesque or Bust

She has been supported by many high profile companies and individuals but particularly Maxim from The Prodigy was involved with the fundraising last year.

With the tragic loss of  The Prodigy’s frontman, Keith Flint, an esteemed icon and influence in the music industry, The Ibiza Burlesque Festival team is continuing our mental health fundraising and commitment now working to raise money to support musicians with Help Musicians UK. Their helpline and initiative, Music Minds Matter, means that there is a confidential helpline 24/7 specific to the needs of the music industry and ensuring this vital work continues is of utmost importance. 
Thank you to those who have donated so far and to those who continue to support this fundraiser.

Sapphira has dedicated her song Dark Angel to the memory of Keith Flint who was an inspiration. The music also on Bandcamp and all good download stores. Any money raised from the download of the MP3 is going to Help Musicians UK, too.

El suicidio se encuentra entre las 20 principales causas de muerte en todo el mundo para personas de todas las edades, pero con su ayuda podemos mejorar la conciencia y ayudar a las personas a obtener el apoyo que necesitan cuando más lo necesitan.

Nuestra fundadora, Sapphira, ha estado haciendo campaña para aumentar la conversación sobre problemas de salud mental desde que publicó su autobiografía, Burlesque o Bust. Ella ha recibido el apoyo de muchas compañías e individuos de alto perfil, pero particularmente Maxim de The Prodigy participó en la recaudación de fondos el año pasado.

Con la trágica pérdida de Keith Flint como un ícono e influencia estimados en la industria de la música, el equipo del Festival Ibiza Burlesque continúa con nuestra recaudación de fondos y nuestro compromiso con la salud mental, ahora trabajando para recaudar dinero para apoyar a los músicos con Help Musicians UK. Su línea de ayuda e iniciativa Music Minds Matters significa que hay una línea de ayuda confidencial las 24 horas del día, los 7 días de la semana, específica para las necesidades de la industria de la música, y garantizar que este trabajo vital continúe es de suma importancia.

Sapphira ha dedicado su canción Dark Angel al recuerdo de Keith Flint, que fue una inspiración. La música también está en Bandcamp y en todas las buenas tiendas de descarga. Cualquier dinero recaudado por la descarga del MP3 también ayudará a los Músicos del Reino Unido.


Our parent production company, Sapphira’s Showgirls, has made it to its 10th anniversary, yes! It’s a major achievement but we would not have done without all of you. According to statistics in small business administration, only one-third of businesses survive to their 10th year and we know it’s our strong supporters and volunteers that have been the heart of helping us make it to this milestone.

Sapphira’s Showgirls would love to commemorate this occasion with our supporters, clients, artists and above all the hundreds of volunteers that have supported us in 17 cities and 8 countries during our 10 years in operation. Thank you.
