We can barely believe that we are writing this, but yes, the wonderful month of October is already upon us. The weather in Ibiza is still balmy, yet not sweltering, the beaches are less crowded, and the island herself seems to be more relaxed, calm and tranquil as we prepare to bid a fond farewell to yet another glorious Ibiza summer.
However, as the temperature begin to drop, the tempo will still be rising in the legendary nightclubs across the islands as the promoters and DJ´s who have packed the dancefloors all summer gear up for the most celebrated events of the season, the famous Ibiza Closing Parties. The season runs longer than ever before, with most of the major clubs still welcoming loyal music fans until mid October. Here is our guide to the Top 3 October Closing Parties in Ibiza.
Music On at Amnesia – Friday 6th October
Music On has been one of Amnesia´s most consistently busy nights for some years now, with the inimitable Italian Marco Carola and his crew of techno wizard DJ´s ensuring a cutting edge display of the most up to date tunes to be found anywhere on the island. Having built up a dedicated following, the closing party is now set to run over two nights, such is the popularity of this weekly party. Kicking off on Friday at midnight, Carola will be joined behind the decks by some of the most sought after DJ´s in the world including Hugo Bianco, Oxia and Miss Kittin, plus of course some very special unannounced guests taking you straight through to Saturday morning when the club will finally say goodbye to another season of Music On at 6am. Have you got the stamina?
Hï Ibiza– Sunday 8th October 2017
This summer, the new club Hï Ibiza opened its doors on the hallowed grounds which used to house the much mourned superclub Space. Expectations were high, with many loyal Space fans doubting that this adored venue could ever live up to its previous reputation. However, ingenious design some of the hottest acts from across the globe and a whole heap of good vibes induced by the Ushuaia management team who run the venue have ensured that this new club has won over even the most doubtful of clubbers. Consistently packed out with their mindblowing events such as the decadent disco night Glitterbox, and Black Coffee, Hï Ibiza has exceeded our expectations. The club will close its doors for the summer on Sunday 8th October, and we are promised a truly memorable event, with Guy Gerber, Andrea Olivia and Steve Lawler just a few of the legendary names on the lineup. The dramatic performers we have come to love over the summer will also be present, with everything from acrobats to Vegas style showgirls lighting up the club with their glamorous shows. One definately not to be missed!
Circoloco Closing Party at DC10 – Monday 9th October 2017
Some would say this is the closing party to end all closing parties, and certainly one of the most important dates in any self respecting clubber´s diary! This now legendary party in the iconic venue, a transformed aircraft hanger has been the most celebrated party in Ibiza´s recent years. The dark red walls of DC10 have come to represent the pinnacle of house music for diehard fans, who flock here week after week to enjoy the unique atmosphere and unmissable vibe. The closing party is always a roadblock so we suggest arriving early to get a good spot on the dancefloor! The lineup is as always a closely guarded secret, but we expect to see some of the usual DC10 suspects such as Loco Dice, Tania Vulcano and Jamie Jones whipping the crowd into one last frenzy for the summer!
So, if you are lucky enough to be visiting the island of Ibiza in October, be sure to pack your dancing shoes, it’s going to be an October to remember!
