They say time flies when you´re having fun, but this year, Here at Ibiza Summer Villas, we are really having to stop and think about how it can possibly be the end of another glorious Ibiza summer, it seems to have passed in the blink of an eye, and it seems impossible the the legendary Ibiza Closing party weeks are already upon us.. Yet, they are indeed, and whilst the rest of the island prepares to wind down for the summer, the club scene is far from over, with several of the biggest and best closing parties still to come.. here is our guide to the very best on the scene..
Space Closing Party – The Final Farewell – Sunday 2nd October
If there´s one ´must do´ closing party this year, and the one that has everyone talking, it´s undoubtedly Space. The iconic superclub will host its final Closing Party this Sunday and for many, it signifies the end of an era. After 25 years of glory, the lease has run out, and the man behind the legend, Pepe Rosello, has to hand the club back to its owners. What will become of the club is unsure, but what is guaranteed is that Sunday´s Closing party will raise the roof, with over 3,000 people expected to attend, to say an emotional farewell to what many people consider to be the best club in the world. Of course, Carl Cox will be headlining, as one of Space´s most loved Dj´s, and a whole cast of local and international talents will be rocking the various rooms and terraces, including Josh Wink, Steve Bug, Tale of Us, Willie Graff, Graham Sahara and DJ Pippi, to name but a few. We think this will be the party to end all parties, beginning at midday on Sunday, and ending.. well who knows?! Tickets are 120€ and only available at the door, so we suggest arriving early to avoid the queues..
Arguably the most popular night of the week at Amnesia, Cocoon attracts a cool and international crowd, who flock to the legendary terraces of Amnesia each and every Monday to enjoy the hard and heavy sounds of the techno and electronic music played by some of the most cutting edge DJ´s on the scene. This year, bringing the summer to a close will be of course Sven Vath, the godfather of Amnesia in many people´s eyes, supported by Adam Beyer, Nina Kraviz and Ilario Alicante, plus many more still to be announced.
F***k Me I´m Famous Closing Party – Pacha – Thursday 06 October
For over 5 years, David Guetta has been packing out the dancefloors of Pacha to capacity with his Thursday night events, consistently drawing a loyal following who come to see the world´s most famous DJ and his guests rock the club in the way only they can. This summer has been no exception, with tickets selling out weekly, and bringing the season to its grand finale on Thursday 06 October, you can expect to see David himself at the helm, of course, and he will be joined by a stellar cast of stars including Robin Schulz and Glowinthedark.
The surprise success of last summer was this new Sunday event at the Hard Rock Hotel, bringing back star of the 80´s who many had forgotten, and the nights were a runaway success with thousands of people coming to relive their youth, get their dayglo leggings on and dance the night away to classic sounds from the likes of Holloway, Black Box, Soul II Soul and Bananarama! This year the night has gone from strength to strength, with residents and holiday makers alike packing out the venue each week for a fun, unpretentious and carefree vibe. Going out with a bang for 2016, the party will be hosted by Dream3Team and La Movida, with special guest to be announced on the day.
Circoloco Closing Party – DC10 – Monday 10th October
For many die hard clubbers, this event signifies the final end of the music season in Ibiza as the now legendary nightspot closes its doors on yet another summer of the very best hard house and electro music, which has thrilled visitors throughout the year. As always, the line-up is a closely guarded secret until the day itself, but you can expect DC10 stalwarts such as Tania Vulcano, Jamie Jones, The Martinez Brothers and Willie Graff to be behind the decks to bid a fond farewell to another fabulous summer at DC10.
So, whatever your musical tastes, there is sure to be a Closing Party that will have you dancing the night away, as the sun sets on Summer 2016.
