Brits warned that they could be fined £25k for partying in Ibiza and Majorca this summer if they attend illegal parties.
According to the authorities of the Balearic Islands, the clubbers at the party are known to have been part of 'unlicensed events'.
Amid the utter chaos, they have been trying to put an end to 'irregular commercially-promoted parties', only if they try to attend them on these two islands.
The measures come into effect this summer due to the unruly conduct from excessive alcohol consumption.
Vicent Marí, President of the Council of Ibiza, will be targeting the parties that charge an admission fee and promote their events without a license.
As per local media outlets, fines could reach up to £25,000 if the ravers try to organise, market, advertise, and participate in a party at protected natural areas or homes.
Cops on the islands have the right to issue penalties and fines and prevent an event before it commences or once it's 'over', but can't intervene if the event is ongoing.
However, those who organise house parties could be fined up to a maximum of £260,000.
Mercedes Garrido, a member of the Balearic Government, has warned the organisers to think 'twice' before planning a boozy night.
"We have been looking for measures to stop illegal parties and to make organisers think twice when they plan a party,” she said.
Restrictions of the sale of alcoholic beverages in shops from 9:30 pm to 8 am and the promotion of party boats in certain areas, have been implemented on alcohol-fuelled pub crawls.
Despite having been implemented last year, the UK Foreign Office has recently emphasised that the restrictions are here to stay.
“There have been a number of serious accidents involving people attending irregular commercially promoted parties in villas and private homes on the islands of Ibiza and Mallorca."
"Licensed clubs and bars are required to meet safety and security standards, including emergency exits and capacity limits, and to have trained, licensed security staff," UK Foreign Office said.
“Irregular commercial parties may not meet these standards. Heavy fines may be imposed by local authorities to anyone attending irregular commercial parties.”
