Closing time in Ibiza
Wednesday 2nd September 2015 | Christina
Ibiza sees out the summer in style with a series of epic closing parties.
2015 has been a monster season over on the White Isle with old parties going strong, new parties staking their claim, and everyone who’s anyone touching down to play a set or two. Closing keeps up the incredible standard and we can’t think of a better way to say goodbye to summer. To make sure you do it right, we’ve cherry picked some of the best closing parties on the island.
ENTER. at Space – 17th September
Richie Hawtiin’s ENTER. has been drawing crowds all season long with its mega line-ups, and the closing fiesta does not disappoint. The man himself steps up in ENTER.Main alongside Marcel Dettmann and Julian Jeweil, with Mind Against, Matador and Bella Sarris all lining up in ENTER.Terrace. Dubfire goes b2b with Victor Calderone in ENTER.Sake, with Fabio Florido and Hito also on deck, and TM404 and The Jass round things out in ENTER.Mind.
A Planet Called Paradise at DC10 – 23rd September
Jamie Jones’ residency has been an unbridled success and Ibiza certainly feels like Paradise’s home. There have already been some pretty epic nights and special b2b sets at DC10 and the closing party is no different, with what can only be described as a ridiculous line-up – Jamie, Jones, Joseph Capriaiti, Steve Lawler, AME, Hot Since 82, Craig Richards, Midland, Jamie Principle (live), Richy Ahmed, Patrick Topping, Infinity Ink, wAFF, and Russ Yallop.
Redlight at Sankeys Ibiza – 24th September
Sankeys Ibiza are rounding out another record breaking season with a bang. The revived Redlight night has brought the US house and garage flavor to the island, and for the final time the regular DJs 99 Souls, Matt Jam Lamont, Low Steppa and Mental Genius will play alongside Kokiri, Noir, Tube & Berger and Franky Rizardo.
Glitterbox at Space – 25th September
Glitterbox has been one of the most popular parties on the island this year, bringing back the sense of glamour of days gone by. Their “music first” policy and amazing Savage club collective has ensured an atmosphere like no other. They bow out in style with sets from Dimitri From Paris, Todd Terry, Breakbot, Greg Wilson, Horse Meat Disco, DJ Pippi, and Copyright.
Cocoon at Amnesia – 28th September
Techno nights have become more and more popular in Ibiza but Sven Vath remains top dog, having led Cocoon into a sixteenth season. Cocoon’s closing parties have become infamous and this one is set to follow suit. Papa Sven leads the charge, with Adam Beyer, Henrik Schwarz (live), Ilario Alicante alongside him, with more guests TBA.
We Love…at Sankeys Ibiza – 30th September
One of the biggest talking points and most successful nights of the season has been We Love…which made the move to Sankeys after 17 years at Space. The likes of Jasper James, Dusky, Kidnap Kid, Detroit Swindle, Ben Pearce, Daniel Avery and Simian Mobile Disco have all played over the season, and they wave goodbye with the legendary Sasha and acts from his taste-making Last Night On Earth label.
