Here the word ‘closing’ and you could be mistaken for thinking that this is when Ibiza starts to wind down; you would be wrong. September in Ibiza means that everything ramps up and it is now that the island really comes alive.
Each club or bar has its own unique way to say goodbye to another season and it really is testament to the spirit of the island that the end of the summer is marked with such hype.
After four months of dancing to the biggest names at the most iconic venues, it only seems right to do it justice and see it off with one last epic session, but with so much going on and everyone upping the anti, how do you know which ones to go to?
We’ve put together our recommended top parties that will guarantee you leave the island feeling a little delicate but definitely like you done Ibiza proud!
So, book your tickets and get some sleep; CLOSING SEASON IS UPON US!
- USHUAIA: ANTS Closing party, 26th September (15:00-23:59)
Ushuaia has not disappointed this year, with big party after big party making headlines across the clubbing scene and their closing parties will be no different.
Every Saturday since June 6th, Ushuaia has presented its very own party, ANTS and the list of names that have taken to the decks is impressive to say the least! Andrea Olivia, Kölsch, Gorgon City, Los Suruba, UNER and Route 94 are all on the line up to wave goodbye to another season with you, and the atmosphere here is second to none.
Grab your ticket early, get your feet wet in the pool during the day and get ready to stomp your way to sunrise. (Don’t forget to look out for the main Ushuaia Closing Party Saturday 3rd October!)
- Amnesia: Together Closing Party, 22nd September (23:59)
Amnesia give you a little bit of everything for their last stand, with Chase & Status, Shy FX, Sigma, Wilkinson and Gotcome keeping you pumping in the main room and house music greats, Defected hosting ‘Defected in The House’ on the terrace keeping you two stepping till the early hours.
MK, Shadow Child, Dantiez Saunderson, Sonny Fodera and Sam Devine will all be giving their all for one last Ibiza stand so expect them to go hard and play blinding sets that should not be missed.
- Pacha: Aoki’s Playhouse Closing Party, 28th September (23:59)
Aoki’s Playhouse has been giving you solid electro through this year’s season, with Monday nights being the craziest party night on the island! Steve Aoki and friends have kept surprising audiences with their banging sets and unpredictable antics so it is safe to say that they will have something pretty mental planned for their last one.
Steve Aoki himself is joined by Boys Noize, Busy P, Feadz and Danny Wade in the main room, with Angel Linde and Graham Sahara keeping the Funky Room jumping
Tickets are selling fast for this, so get booked now
- Space: Carl Cox Music is Revolution Closing Party, 22nd September (20:00-6:00)
If you need to be told why you should see out an Ibiza season with Carl Cox, then you are on the wrong island! Godfather of all things house, Carl Cox has been throwing parties around the world for longer than most of us have been alive and boy does he know how to throw a party!
He mixes the latest in audio and visual technology with the crème de la crème of techno and sprinkles the whole thing with his own unique style of audience participation and it is easy to see why he has the status he does.
With so many names on the bill, you really do get your money’s worth here as well, although we would happily pay the 45 euro to just see Carl himself; get comfy whilst we list them off:
- Carl Cox
- Loco Dice
- DJ Sneak
- Monika Kruse
- Just Be
- Igor Marijuan
- DJ Callum
- Jason Bye
- Clara Da Costa
- Claude Foncept
- Eoin Smyth
- Harry Ludermann
Be sure to make a note in the diary for the amazing Space Closing Fiesta on Sunday 4th October!
- Es Paradise: Glow Neon Paint Closing Party, 20th September (23:00-06:00)
The ONLY paint party on the island; be ready to be covered in neon paint, dazzled with the show and dancing till way past dawn with this one.
If you want to spectate but not get covered in paint (although we don’t see the point in that), there are ‘dry zones’ where you should stay relatively paint-free.
Resident Dj’s keep the vibe going all night, but this one is really about getting a little messy, having a lot of fun and getting to throw paint at your mates!
- Ibiza Rocks: W.A.R! Closing Party| What Hannah Wants, 18th September (20:00-23:59)
We Are Rockstars (W.A.R) are bringing you more of their electronic heavy, DJ-led shows that are sure to knock your socks off!
Hannah Wants, Redlight, Monki and Timanti all take to the stage to give you one more night of W.A.R!! Prepare for battle!
