Believe it or not, the 2016 Ibiza season is approaching its climax. It seems like only yesterday we were packing our bags and heading to the Balearic party island for the opening parties, but now the closing party season is upon us! So if you’re heading out for closing, these are the parties that you won't want to miss.
THE LAST EVER SPACE CLOSING FIESTA
Space’s Closing Fiesta is always an Ibiza season highlight. The club’s car park gets turned into a festival-scale outdoor arena where the world’s best DJs can ply their trade. This year’s closing will be an emotional affair, as the club close their doors for the final time. The line up is a fitting combination of old and new – Carl Cox, joins Tale of Us, Roger Sanchez, David Morales, Maceo Plex and old terrace favourites - Brandon Block & Alex P.
CIRCOLOCO CLOSING PARTY
Traditionally the last club to host a closing party, DC10 closes for the summer on 10th October. DC10 started life as an Ibiza outsider, but has grown into one of the island’s most influential venues. And they always go full throttle for the last dance of the summer! The line up is under wraps for now, but you can expect a whole host of CircoLoco artists on rotation. Taking inspiration from Space, DC10 construct a large stage outside the venue to account for the surge in numbers.
COCOON CLOSING AT AMNESIA
It has been a resurgent year for Cocoon at Amnesia. Sven Vath’s iconic Monday night techno party closes on 3rd October and features Adam Beyer, Nina Kraviz and Ilario Alicante alongside ‘Papa’ Sven. As always, you can expect this one to run long into Tuesday morning.
THE LAST EVER CARL COX AT SPACE
Space Ibiza’s best known DJ has been running Tuesday nights at the club since 2001. The curtain will come down on Carl Cox’s fifteen year residency on 20th September. Coxy is commemorating the event by inviting Nic Fanciulli, DJ Sneak, and tINI to take over La Terraza, while he hosts The Discoteca all night long. You can be certain, that Carl will make this a send-off to remember!
LAST DANCE AT USHUAIA
2016 has seen Ushuaia pursue a more commercial music policy, with residents including Steve Aoki and Hardwell. However, they are stripping things back for the closing party, which takes place on Saturday 1st October. Seth Troxler and The Martinez brothers join Antz boss Andrea Oliva, Black Coffee and Damian Lazarus.
