Ibiza Closing Parties

Every year the last fortnight in September and the first in October sees last-chance partygoers flocking to Ibiza to enjoy to biggest and best nights out as clubs celebrate the end of another successful holiday season with a bang. With the summer seemingly over in the UK we started thinking about the Ibiza Closing Parties and with announcements of dates and headline DJ’s coming in thick and fast Plain & Simple is on hand to guide you through the best of the bunch…

Carl Cox @ Space

Tuesday 21st September will see two DJ-giants battle it out for closing party glory as Roger Sanchez headlines Release Yourself @ Amnesia whilst across the other side of the island Carl Cox will headline the closing party at Space. Having enjoyed a packed Carl Cox closing party at Space back in 2007 this would be my clear favourite for the night, even for the season as Carl is renowned for bringing unforgettable, unbeatable mixes to the decks at one of the world’s largest clubs. Expect tired feet, exhaustion and 100% satisfaction if you choose to attend!

Pete Tong @ Eden

Friday 24th September at Eden will feature the ever-impressive Pete Tong playing a headline slot for Wonderland. Pete has had a manic summer of playing the top festivals and clubs and will be sure to want to top it off with an amazing night at Eden. Also at Eden for the Wonderland closing party will be the incredible Groove Armada, Aeroplane, Tim Green, Jayma & Andy George and Alex Metric.

Hed Kandi @ Es Paradis

Saturday 25th September boasts the choice of two of Ibiza’s best closing parties each year, Defected @ Pacha with Simon Dunmore & Bob Sinclar whilst over at Es Paradis the Hed Kandi closing party will be in full swing. Hed Kandi’s homegrown talent will be on the decks with Ben Santiago, Phil Faversham, Andy Daniels, John Jones, Wez Clarke, Jim Breese, Luke Neville, Dean Rigg, Carl Hanaghan, Sam Cannon, Des Paul, Jason Vereker, Sarah Louise and Steven Quarre likely to be in attendance.

We Love @ Space

Sunday 19th & Sunday 26th September this year is the all-day/all-nighter to be at as We Love @ Space, the world’s premier 24-hour party kicks off. The list of DJ’s is exhausting to read, let alone party to for a day straight:

Sven Vath at the Cocoon Closing Party 2009 @ Amnesia

Monday 27th September – The Cocoon Closing Party @ Amnesia brings old and new favourites to the decks in the form of Sven Vath, Ricardo Villalobos, Loco Dice, Zip and Raresh. House and techno rarely sounds better than at an Amnesia closing party so get down to the last Cocoon of 2010 if you can.

Erick Morillo @ Pacha's Subliminal Sessions

Wednesday 29th September sees Erick Morillo headline the Subliminal Closing Party @ Pacha with Harry ‘Choo Choo’ Romero, Jose Nunez and Juan Diaz supporting throughout the night. Subliminal has become renowned for being popular with house music fans across the globe and the closing party promises to be no different. Expect heavy house anthems non-stop.

Cream @ Amnesia

Thursday 30th September is a date for your diary if you’re one of the lucky few still out on the island at the end of the month. The Cream Closing Party @ Amnesia will be one of the very last of the 2010 season and likely one of the best. In the Main Room Eric Prydz, Style of Eye and Anthony Probyn will grace the decks whilst on the Terrace Paul van Dyk, Eddie Halliwell, Gareth Wyn and Giuseppe Ottaviani will be playing through to the early hours.
