There’s no time to reel in the summer blues just yet, we’re hurtling through closing party season! With many institutions still to reveal their finale line-ups, we can announce one atomic grouping at the powerhouse that is Amnesia. It’s confirmed, we can all afford to dream about dancefloor victory. A whopping thirteen acts are on the roster for what is set to be a potent shutdown of the club’s cavernous halls. Make sure to keep your energy banks stocked up for Saturday 5th October – meanwhile read on to find out just who is making up this illustrious collective.
For many, the C-word is a dreaded one, especially straight off the back of summer. We can fearlessly say, however, that Christmas has come early in all the right ways with this particular closing bonanza. Both rooms at the iconic superclub will be hosting stellar names, so that does mean you may have some trouble deciding between each side of the venue. Although, that’s not the worst problem to have. Over in the Terrace the legendary techno-titan Ricardo Villalobos will be joined on a b2b by none other than Luciano. It’s certainly not every day that two names of this stature come together and it may just be the pairing we’ve all been waiting for. Meanwhile, hot property Nina Kraviz is on to grace the Club Room with her insatiably energising sound. Best known for sets that come close to a religious experience, expect an absolute belter of a performance.
Some other gems awaiting your discovery in the Terrace include Danish delight Kölsch who will be bringing his signature melodic soundscape. The Kompakt Records producer and DJ has served up his emotive, high-calibre tastes from Ushuaïa Ibiza to DC10 – his appearance at Amnesia will be the last chance to catch him on Ibiza. No stranger to the scene either and set to take on the coveted decks is contemporary house and techno spinner Patrick Topping. Still in the same room, one of the most sought-after new generation of artists is Archie Hamilton. The London boy has thrown it down at Fabric to Space and festivals to the tune of Sonus and OFFSónar. Completing the sonic force in the Terrace are island veterans and Amnesia residents, Mar-T, Cuartero and the longest running of them all, Caal. A fresh new face wraps it up by the name of John Woods.
If that’s not enough, you’ll be able to drink in the heady atmosphere some more over in the Club Room. Brazilian rising star ANNA is one of the ones to watch at the moment. Her kinetic and kaleidoscopic techno flavours have found acclaim as the DJ Award’s ‘Best Breakthrough’. With a reputation for killer productions, Marco Faraone is joining the party. The Drumcode DJ is best known for tracks that shut it down every time. Completing proceedings in the Club room are Luca Donzelli and Les Schmitz as two further residents
If this isn’t every music lovers’ dream then we’re not sure what is. A line-up like this just has to be done. And, if Amnesia’s raucous closing party history is anything to go by, you’ll be dancing till the sun shines down. Grab your tickets and get ready for the mother of all closings.
