Carine de Mesmaeker Talks Velvet Ibiza Epic Women’s Party (AUDIO)

Produced by Charlotte Robinson


In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with Carine de Mesmaeker, the creator and founder of Velvet Ibiza the fab all-inclusive five-day party for LGBTQ women that takes place May 2nd to May 7th at Cala Martina in Ibiza, Spain. De Mesmaeker rents out the entire resort so there’s no need to venture anywhere, the party is literally on your doorsteps. Velvet Ibiza is an all-inclusive five-day and five-night party which includes transportation from the airport, a bungalow, meals, activities, all parties and drinks until around 10:30P. Celebrating its 7th year Velvet Ibiza attracts a vast international crowd with LGBTQ women traveling from all over the globe for one big giant celebration for our community. From the pool parties, sports tournaments, yoga classes, club nights and now the infamous duck race to the top queer female DJs from Europe and America dropping the sickest beats, Velvet Ibiza has it all. This year Velvet Ibiza is focusing on single women adding speed dating to the mix. All the dance parties and special events take place at the host hotel Cala Martina located in the historical Hippie Market one of the few places in Ibiza where you can still find the retro hippie essence. It was founded in 1973 and for that reason it is currently the largest and oldest market on the island. A second hotel Paraiso Beach right next to Hotel Cala Martina has also been retained as well so there’s no reason to go anywhere unless of course you want to go shopping, head to the beach or explore the island. We talked to Carine about her inspiration for creating Velvet Ibiza and her spin on our LGBTQ issues. 

Carine De Mesmaeker is the mastermind behind Velvet 69 one of Europe’s biggest queer Women’s Party in Brussels, Belgium founded in 2010. Since 2015 Velvet Ibiza has made history being the first ever queer women event held in the small Balearic Island famously known for its LGBTQ friendly culture, its vibrant nightlife scene and celebrity sighting. Carine has been producing parties in bars and clubs since the early 80s. She owned and operated her own club “Gate” from 1999 to 2004. Her goal is to create a safe space for queer women and to throw amazing parties. Velvet Ibiza the all-inclusive 5-day and 5-night event is becoming a holy ground for queer women who continue to descend on this fabulous isle to enjoy one the most life changing and bonding experience.
