Ibiza’s closing parties
It will come as no surprise that Ibiza is one of our top 5 destinations for party animals. The island has a higher concentration of super clubs than anywhere else in the world and tourists flock there to sample the outlandish nightlife. The infectious Balearic spirit leads to lively daytime lounging too.
The main resort of San Antonio is awash with ways to have fun – from the sunset celebrations at Café Mambo, to the foam parties at Eden and the cocktail bars in the West End.
Every year, as the season finale comes around on the island, the clubs try to out-do each other with closing parties to end all closing parties. It’s the busiest time for holidays in Ibiza as party people who were there the summer before flock to the shores after experiencing the unique Ibiza vibe.
If you’re thinking of heading to the Ibiza closing parties, keep in mind that you need to go big or go home. With that said, here’s your definitive guide to how to enjoy the end of the season in 2014.
Cream – Amnesia
Thursday 25th September
The Cream Ibiza closing party at Amnesia is the biggest selling party of them all – mainly thanks to the huge capacity (5,000!) of the club. Trance DJs, EDM and house acts take to the stage and the decks to belt the tunes out while lasers and lighting enhance the incredible atmosphere. As the beats drop, beware the massive ice cannon! This year’s closers include Laidback Luke, Benny Benassi and Paul Van Dyk.
We Love Ibiza! – Space
Sunday 28th September
We Love Ibiza! It’s not just a statement; it’s a whole night at the legendary Space nightclub in Playa d’en Bossa. This year’s closing party looks absolutely incredible. Gorgon City, James Zabiela and Rudimental will be playing the night out with their uplifting tunes. The We Love Ibiza! nights are among the biggest on the island, so expect a night to remember if you decide to book your place for the 2014 closing party at Space.
Zoo Project – Benimussa Park/Gala Night Ibiza
Saturday 27th September
Every Wednesday and Thursday throughout the summer Ibiza has been buzzing with all kinds of zoo animals, or at least human party lovers dressed as zoo animals. The daytime parties here get more popular every year as music worshippers come back for the unique electro and house. This year’s closing party will be deejayed by the likes of Giles Smith, Funk E and Karina. Don’t forget your glitter face paint!
Circo Loco – DC10
Monday 6th October
Known as the workers’ club, DC10 is one of the coolest on the island. It’s smaller than the famous superclubs but also holds one of the biggest and best terrace closing parties in Ibiza. The Circo Loco crew get the big speakers in and the best in minimal techno DJs spinning the decks under the Ibiza flight path. The day time party begins at midday in the car park.
Ibiza Rocks – Pacha
Monday 6th October
In 2014 Ibiza Rocks is holding its notorious closing party right after the Circo Loco one on Monday October 6th. If you’re in it for the long haul, what a way to see out the season! This year welcomes 2ManyDJs, Basement Jaxx and Doorly to the decks at Pacha in San Antonio.
