The Ibiza Closing Parties are an Ibiza tradition running every year at the end of September and early October. The parties are bigger, the music is louder and the nights never end! The weather starts to cool down in September, but the average temperature is still 24 degrees Celsius so the weather is still warm and sunny. The parties will sell out so make sure to buy tickets in advance. If you do, entry will be guaranteed. Expect to spend €30-€60 for each ticket when bought in advance. However, if you buy tickets on the door they will cost €80-€100. All clubs open at midnight, and the biggest queues are between 1:30am and 3am. During the closing parties, Ibiza allows the clubs to stay open late until noon the next day. You can expect little or no sleep during these last few days of the season! A vodka and mixer will cost €15-€25 in a club, whilst a bottle of water will set you back about €12. Make sure you have about €100 in cash on arrival at the club for any unexpected surprises.
When there are 3 or 4 sharing the cost, taxis are the best way to travel from club to club. There are taxi ranks everywhere, however the queues can be long so it’s best to book in advance. You can calculate your Ibiza taxi fares here.
Legendary DJ Carl Cox will be headlining the Space Closing Fiesta on Sunday 4th October 2015. Guests playing alongside Carl include Marco Carola, Adam Beyer, Nicole Moudaber and Guti to name a few, with every week featuring an early sunset set from headliners including Monika Kruse, Art Department, Pan-Pot and Coxy himself. Always a huge party, not merely confined to Coxy’s techno leanings but exploring a huge variety of underground dance music… curated, DJed and even slightly MCed by the much-loved figurehead, Carl Cox.
The David Guetta vehicle causes gridlock outside and inside Pacha every night of its Thursday residency. Of course, the French superstar will be headlining Pacha’s Closing Party on Thursday 1st October. But be warned! Season passes are worthless, guest lists get ripped up. Doormen you thought were your friends will spit on your shoes. Gorgeous models will stab each other through the heart with six inch stilettos for a spot in the DJ booth. This is a party everyone wants to be at.
Steve Aoki is all out American. On stage he is loud, brash, an extreme extrovert, has a complete lack of respect for the cake making industry, and plays pow-pow-in-your-face-electro that’ll take your hair off should you stand too close to the speakers. Ibiza, may we introduce to you the party animal that is Steve Aoki. Steve Aoki will be headlining his own Playhouse Closing Party at Pacha on Monday 28th September.
